Atticus on What Guys Really Think About Your Body
In this episode we sit down for our first official interview with a guy. That’s right…we’re extending this conversation to the other half of the population because ultimately, they play a pretty big role in this world we live in. Atticus is a poet whose words have caught the attention and hearts of millions of readers. His first two books, Love Her Wild and The Dark Between Stars were both best sellers and he was named the world’s most tattoo-able” poet by Galore magazine. In addition to making millennials fall head over heels in love with poetry, one of the most fascinating things about him has been his decision to remain anonymous, wearing a mask to all public appearances. In a world that celebrates fame he defies the norm in more ways than one.
Pour yourself a glass of wine (may we suggest his new label, Lost Poet?) and join us for a conversation on love, fame, insecurity and his thoughts on stomach rolls.
