Livin' Large - Leila Henley and Gigantism


Leila Henley

Leila Henley is a badass vocalist, saxophonist, and flute player. She really stands out in a crowd. Leila could've been an even taller presence if she hadn't had that pesky pituitary gland tumor removed. 

We chat about her bout with gigantism, and traverse some of her life story from Alabama to New Orleans, into the heart of Texas (where everything is bigger, after all).

EXTRA!--This episode has a commercial, but it's not selling anything but a pretend product Leila made up on the spot. She sings in it.

EXTRA! Put the kids to bed and enjoy Friends With Deficits: After Hours, where we explore the potentially romantic side of living with challenges, and attempt to answer the age-old question, "Is bigger better?"
