FatGuyRadioShow was created from the desire to share thoughts and the expressions of a fat guy. It’s not a self-help show by any means; it’s just hosted by a Fat Guy. Host Cory Blaze took being overweight his entire life, the struggles he had to endure as an overweight child to adulthood. One pitfall of being fat is having people stare at you, so FatGuyRadioShow was created to give another perspective of the life of a fat guy.
The show serves the purpose of entertaining everyone skinny to fat, young to old, man to woman. If you take life too seriously it will suck! FatGuyRadioShow began in the summer of 2011 when one fat guy, Cory Blaze, approached his friend and co-worker Phillipious with the idea of starting a podcast. Neither guy having extensive experience in podcasting, the production company BDB Productions, LLC took the chance in producing FatGuyRadioShow.
Since its maiden voyage May 25, 2011 it has successfully stamped its mark on the world of podcasting. Growing the show strictly through Facebook and Twitter, FGRS has grown to over 80,000 downloads by just social media. It’s beginning to embrace local business, other podcasts, and has garnered a worldwide audience. It continues to grow through the ongoing support of listeners continuously spreading the word of FatGuyRadioShow.
“I will forever bring this show to you, my last breath I hope will be in this microphone”; Cory Blaze host of FatGuyRadioShow. The shows battle cry is “skinny people, fat people already know their fat, so stop reminding us”.
Cory Blaze, host of FatGuyRadioShow… yes the fat guy! This outspoken-will say anything man, will do his best to get you to see his way. His trembling kindness could smoother a potato in milky brown gravy. Cory has been in the world of entertainment for over 30 years. He started being a clown at the ripe age of 2 years old. There was never a dole moment when Cory was in the room. As a child Cory was often told to “hush up, grown folks are talking”. So the gift of talking was a birthright. He comes from a family of professionals and business owners. His mother, affectionately known on the show as “moma Blaze” is a college professional and his father is a business owner. His siblings make up lawyers, accountants, and insurance brokers. Cory… a fat podcast host and a continued disappointment to his overly educated family members. But they love him instead.
Cory began to cut his entertaining teeth in school, acting in plays, auditioning for commercials, and playing in a band. He started in the church, where he did it all and continues to this day.
Cory is part of a local indie film making company, works with BDB Productions on video/production projects, volunteers for local non-profit agencies, loves his four stolen children, and has a full time day job. All on top of hosting FatGuyRadioShow. He doesn’t sleep often according to some reports. You will often hear Cory say the shows battle cry “skinny people, fat people already know their fat, so stop reminding us”
Phillipious, executive producer of FatGuyRadioShow, the youngest member of the crew. Being the good friend of host Cory Blaze, Phillipious takes on the role of controlling the host, maintaining production quality, and keeping the show moving. Not an easy task when you weigh in at 130lbs and the host is a fat guy. He accents the show with his one word, commanding instructions, and is guaranteed to piss Cory off before the end of the hour. This young smooth Latin boy keeps the show grounded, but can roll the show into tailspin.
Daniel “Lil’ D”
Daniel, known on the show as “lil D”. Called “lil D” because he’s the skinny version of Cory. He’s the younger brother of Cory Blaze. Lil D brings the flavor to the show, with his antics, life experiences and strange knowledge of the most obscure things.
He also works with BDB Production, he’s the resident dj. Not in “radio terms” but in spinning the ones and two’s.
The only guy on the show with two beautiful daughters, lil D is the most life-experienced individual on the show. You will always catch him in a brand name-labeled shirt. He’s the most recent addition to the FatGuyRadioShow crew and brings the funny. Strangely enough, no one is really sure if he’s truly related to Cory. They’re polar opposites. You will often catch him speaking backwards and asking for another chance with his paraphrase of “one more gin”.
