Description

<p>Gwyneth Paltrow and goop's Chief Content Officer Elise Loehnen chat with leading thinkers, culture changers, and industry disruptors—from doctors to creatives, CEOs to spiritual healers—about shifting old paradigms and starting new conversations.</p>

Episode Date
Letting Perfectionism Go
2809
“I was craving the straight and narrow path that I had arbitrarily created for myself without really any experience to base it upon,” Valerie Jarrett says. “It’s just what I thought should make me happy.” And then Jarrett hit a wall. In this intimate chat with our chief content officer, Elise Loehnen, Jarrett shares the path she took from a law firm in Chicago to become Barack Obama’s senior advisor in the White House and family confidante. She talks about being a single mom and how she learned to admit when life was hard, ask for help, and stop trying to be so perfect. Her stories show a different, more adventurous, and hopeful way to build a life of purpose—however you define purpose in your own life.

How to Minimize Stress and Avoid Burnout
2904
“Wellness is not a state of mind,” Emily Nagoski says. “It is not coming to a place of loving yourself. Wellness is a state of action. It is the freedom to move through the natural cycles of the stress response.” Nagoski—author of <em>Come As You Are</em>—began her work as a sex educator and went on to earn an MS in counseling and a PhD in health behavior. Her new book, <em>Burnout</em>, explains why women experience burnout differently than men—and how we can all avoid it. This is one of those rare conversations about stress that didn’t make us…stressed. It did make us laugh. (For more, see <a href="https://url.emailprotection.link/?bjE8wTftZfcmuju01p2ThIahKVW1ICu9AHwT_leEPYhtYxYnnmDpvn-bcwc3iX1ZLT77IGTDFrmNE6kwl_QyB9Q~~">The goop Podcast</a> hub.)

Gwyneth x Brené Brown: On the Roots of Shame, Courage, and Vulnerability
3943
“I call shame the twenty-ton shield,” says Brené Brown. “It's a defense mechanism—very classic—that we carry in order to protect ourselves from getting hurt. But what it actually does is protect us from being seen.” Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston, a <em>New York Times</em>–bestselling author (read her latest, <em>Dare to Lead</em>), and the star of a new Netflix special, <em>The Call to Courage</em>. In this chat, she and GP talk about courage, which Brown says is teachable and possible to cultivate only from a place of vulnerability. They talk about being perfectionists: “Where perfectionism is driving, your shame is riding shotgun,” says Brown. And they talk about empathy—as a tool for combating shame internally and for stepping beyond yourself to connect with and lead others. (For more, see <a href="https://url.emailprotection.link/?bjE8wTftZfcmuju01p2ThIahKVW1ICu9AHwT_leEPYhtYxYnnmDpvn-bcwc3iX1ZLT77IGTDFrmNE6kwl_QyB9Q~~">The goop Podcast</a> hub.)

How to Cultivate Intuition
2635
Laura Day and Laura Lynne Jackson are renowned psychic mediums and friends. They both joined our chief content officer Elise Loehnen (another friend) at our last In goop Health summit. “Everybody thinks they need to come to someone like me or Laura to get their information,” said Jackson. “And the truth is you don't.” Day and Jackson work differently, but this is where they agree: Everybody has intuitive abilities, which routinely get dismissed. In this chat, they explain how to notice, listen to, test, and document your intuition so that you can use it as a tool to help you with your relationships, career, and daily routine. (For more, see <a href="https://url.emailprotection.link/?bjE8wTftZfcmuju01p2ThIahKVW1ICu9AHwT_leEPYhudBx-IfQ6r8IUMm9ge2mdSI-q0hMrO0boypNc97U_kTA~~">The goop Podcast</a> hub.)

Why Are We All So Unhappy?
1877
The spiritual legend best known as Swamiji went to New Jersey—and so did our chief content officer Elise Loehnen. Swamiji created and runs the Vedanta Institute in Mumbai. Vedanta is the study of Vedic tests and translates to “the end of knowledge.” At the institute, and now throughout the world, his scholars explore why so many of us are so unhappy. In the world of Vedanta, they believe that there is a distinction between the mind and the intellect—and that the intellect should not be confused with intelligence. Because we do not exercise our intellects to control our minds, we are run by our likes and dislikes. We are controlled by our attachments and our emotions, the theory goes. How do we break free? Swamiji tells Elise—after taking her to the mat a couple of times.

The Small Hacks That Make Life Easier
2727
“To be a helpable person seems counterintuitive,” says Bonnie St. John. “I’m the one-legged black woman. You know, I spent my whole life proving that I could do it all myself.” St. John is the first African American to ever win medals in winter Olympic competition, taking home a silver and two bronzes at the 1984 Paralympics. She graduated magna cum laude from Harvard. Earned a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford. Served in the White House as a director of the National Economic Council during the Clinton administration. “I was such a drive-yourself-until-you-drop person,” she says. Until she learned a different paradigm for high performance—one that was sustainable, with recoveries built in along the way. It’s not about pulling the throttle back, says St. John; when you follow her method, you’re able to do more. She calls it micro-resilience: “little hacks that have a big impact.” And in this episode, we get her favorite strategies and tools for changing pessimistic viewpoints, prioritizing, making decisions, working with others, and just getting it done. (For more, see <a href="https://url.emailprotection.link/?bjE8wTftZfcmuju01p2ThIahKVW1ICu9AHwT_leEPYhudBx-IfQ6r8IUMm9ge2mdSI-q0hMrO0boypNc97U_kTA~~">The goop Podcast</a> hub and St. John’s book <em>Micro-Resilience: Minor Shifts for Major Boosts in Focus, Drive, and Energy</em>.)

How Soil Health Is Reflected in the Gut
4535
“We’ve wiped out 40 percent of biology on earth in just fifty years,” says Zach Bush, MD. “And yet that Mother Earth keeps reaching out saying: Are you sure you don't want to keep playing? Because we could have some fun together.” For Bush, the health of our soil microbiome is the single most potent factor determining how healthy—or unhealthy—we are. What makes Bush’s case particularly compelling is the unlikely path he took to realizing it: Bush is a board-certified physician with a background in internal medicine, endocrinology and metabolism, and hospice and palliative care. He thought he’d spend his whole life in academia, until a curveball took him to a nutrition center in rural Virginia. There, everything Bush “knew” about nutrition and the drivers of disease and medicine...broke. Slowly, he began to put together the pieces, which told a new story that felt both surprising and intuitive to him. Today, Bush shares that story, along with the steps we can take to move from chemical farming toward regenerative agriculture, and from a culture of dis-ease toward one of healing.” (For more, see <a href="https://url.emailprotection.link/?bjE8wTftZfcmuju01p2ThIahKVW1ICu9AHwT_leEPYhtYxYnnmDpvn-bcwc3iX1ZLT77IGTDFrmNE6kwl_QyB9Q~~">The goop Podcast</a> hub.)

What We Get Wrong about Other People
2837
“You’ve got to meet people where they are,” says Sally Kohn. “But then you don’t have to leave them there.” Kohn, a TV commentator and columnist, appeared on Fox News representing a liberal point of view for many years—that experience alone taught her a lot about listening, bridging, and ultimately persuading. Before that, Kohn worked for more than fifteen years as a community organizer. And today she’s talking to Elise Loehnen about her incredibly helpful, surprisingly funny book <em>The Opposite of Hate: A Field Guide to Repairing Our Humanity</em>. It’s a conversation that taught us about listening to understand—not to argue—and about getting comfortable with discomfort. It also reminded us that we’re all way more similar than we tend to think we are. (For more, see <a href="https://url.emailprotection.link/?bjE8wTftZfcmuju01p2ThIahKVW1ICu9AHwT_leEPYhudBx-IfQ6r8IUMm9ge2mdSI-q0hMrO0boypNc97U_kTA~~">The goop Podcast</a> hub.)

Gwyneth x Lupita Nyong’o: On Giving Yourself Permission to Learn
2992
GP hung out at Universal Studios with Oscar-winning actor Lupita Nyong’o as she prepped for the release of her new film Us (written and directed by the talented Jordan Peele). They talked about Nyong’o’s path to the platform she has today: growing up in Mexico and Kenya, her politician-professor father who was in self-exile, Nyong’o’s education (and why getting an Ivy League degree was important to her), landing her role in 12 Years a Slave, the cultural significance of Black Panther. They talked about shame—in the context of women’s sexuality and also the shame of not understanding something. “Ignorance doesn't have to be permanent. It can be momentary,” says Nyong’o. “You have to allow yourself to learn. And it starts with admitting what you don’t know.” Other highlights: the pair’s perspective on how beauty is being redefined in the culture, Nyong’o’s description of the most “dangerous” (in a good way) actor she’s ever worked with, and some critical tips on getting through a scary movie.

How Does Childhood Stress Manifest in Adulthood?
3656
“Nothing itself is addictive on the one hand,” says Gabor Maté, MD. “And on the other hand, everything could be addictive if there’s an emptiness in that person that needs to be filled.” Maté is known for his unique perspective on addiction, child development and trauma, and how this stress manifests in the body. He has written several books, including In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts, Hold On to Your Kids, and Scattered. In this moving conversation with Elise Loehnen, Maté talks about how early childhood experiences sometimes show up later in life and how we’re all affected by our social, cultural, economic, and relational environments. He also shares from his incredible personal experiences in family and palliative care and ministering to patients in the most drug-addicted district in North America. And he talks about the beauty of medicine—which, he explains, is not about control. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

How to Become Your Future Self
3217
“Nobody changes until they change their energy—and when you change your energy, you change your life,” says researcher and author Joe Dispenza, DC. Dispenza’s work explores neuroscience, epigenetics, quantum physics, and consciousness. He’s become known for helping people heal in miraculous ways. (His latest book is called Becoming Supernatural: How Common People Are Doing the Uncommon.) In this episode, he explains what at first appears to be magic, where science and mysticism intersect. It’s possible, Dispenza believes, to change the way you think, the way you act, the way you feel; to change your mind and body. The hardest part: not making the same choices you did the day before, choosing not to live by the emotions that keep you anchored to the past. “People wait their whole lives for something outside of them to change how they feel inside,” Dispenza says. But priming your brain to be a map to a new future—that’s an energetic job in his book. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Gwyneth x Dax Shepard: On Triggers and Self-Esteem
5849
GP caught up with Dax Shepard at his studio and they covered a lot of ground: They talked about the roots of shame and fear, the things that they find triggering, and trying to figure out how to be intentional. They talked about what erodes self-esteem, what is erroneous to self-esteem, and what builds it. They swapped stories: relationship challenges, second chances at intimacy, navigating parenthood and fame. And they kept coming back to vulnerability—how to approach it, how to get comfortable with it, and what they’ve learned in the process. (P.S. On this episode, you’ll also hear a bit from Shepard’s right hand, Monica Padman. And as always, you can see more on The goop Podcast hub.)

The Social Anxiety Toolbox
2971
Boston-based clinical psychologist Ellen Hendriksen has become known for helping people through anxiety, which is something she has struggled with, too. Hendriksen wrote a book about it called How to Be Yourself: Quiet Your Inner Critic and Rise Above Social Anxiety. Our chief content officer, Elise Loehnen, asked Hendriksen to share the strategies she’s learned and tested to cope with social anxiety and move from fear and doubt toward authenticity and a genuine comfort with the person you are in the world.

What Makes a Dad a Dad
2341
“Dads saved the human race,” says Anna Machin, evolutionary anthropologist and author of The Life of Dad. In this conversation with goop CCO Elise Loehnen, Machin calls us to reimagine the role of the modern father, think differently about sex and gender as they relate to parenthood, and explore what it means to be a family, to be social, to form long-lasting relationships. Machin’s research on the anthropological roots of fatherhood and how fathers evolved to be parent figures has an equally extraordinary impact on men, women, and children—and the potential to change what our communities look like well into the future.

Erin Brockovich on How We’ll Rescue Ourselves
3290
“I never thought you had to be any one way to be a person and to be kind and to learn,” says Erin Brockovich, who continues to redefine what it means to be an activist. The tough news, Brockovich tells us, is that Superman is not coming to save the environment, to clean up our water, to kick harmful chemicals out of our neighborhoods. But here’s why Brockovich is optimistic: We’ve had the power all along to rescue ourselves. We do not need to wait for oversight that does not exist. We simply have to believe that we can, that we should, that we have every right to speak up and speak out. And then we can start small, we can start local, and we can make the kind of big, life-altering changes that Brockovich has helped inspire all over the world. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Family Secrets
3022
“I've been kind of a student of family secrets all my life,” writer Dani Shapiro says. All of her novels have centered around family secrets, and her memoirs have explored secrets in her own family history, some of which she didn’t know existed—until she took a DNA test on a whim. When the results came back, Shapiro learned this: Her father, her beloved father whose deep Jewish lineage Shapiro had always identified with, was not her biological father. Did this mean she was not the person she thought she was? Did it change everything? Did it change nothing? What did her parents (who have both passed) know? Following the publication of her new memoir Inheritance, Shapiro talks with our chief content officer, Elise Loehnen, about searching for answers, exploring what defines us, and ultimately “being willing to embrace and live with a certain amount of uncertainty—just simply not knowing.” (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

The Skin-Gut Connection
2480
“People get used to sometimes feeling a certain way, and they don't know that they could feel better,” says naturopathic doctor and aesthetician Nigma Talib. “I think when people get the taste of what it’s like to feel optimal, they quite often stick to it.” Working with Talib is fascinating because she can connect how you’re feeling to what’s happening in your gut to the way your skin looks. And then she helps you fix it all. She wrote about this process in a book called Younger Skin Starts in the Gut. And as the title suggests, Talib is also known for her approach to aging gracefully—and not prematurely. "Aging is beautiful," she says. "There's something about having those gorgeous expression lines." (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Gwyneth x Elena Brower: On Divorce and Self-Forgiveness
2272
GP catches up with her old friend Elena Brower, yoga teacher and coauthor of Better Apart: The Radically Positive Way to Separate. They talk about their own divorces, relationship endings and beginnings, and transformations. Brower doesn’t believe it’s ever too late to “fix it.” She pushes for taking responsibility for your attitude and reality, vigilantly taking care of yourself during and after the separation, having patience for the process, and having a lot of self-forgiveness. And GP explains why she always says intimate relationships are a meditation on everything that’s wrong with us. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

How to Deal with Assholes
2571
“For better or worse, I’m the asshole guy,” Robert Sutton once told us. Sutton is a professor at Stanford and the author of The Asshole Survival Guide. Of course, his work encompasses a lot more. Sutton studies organizational change, leadership, innovation, workplace dynamics, friction. Today, we’re talking a lot about assholes though: What makes someone act like one? How can we identify the tendencies in others and ourselves? How do you get rid of assholes in your office and personal life? And when you can’t, what are the best coping strategies for dealing with one? (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

How to Be with the Partner You Picked
3045
“Our memory is shit,” says couples therapist and author of We Do Stan Tatkin. “It can’t be relied on, and our perception is like a fun-house mirror…. And so that should give way to more cautiousness, more consideration, and more curiosity than we tend to have, especially in love relationships.” Tatkin’s approach to helping couples develop “secure-functioning relationships” is both realistic and optimistic. His work helps people better understand their partners so that they can become the best possible team together. Tatkin is a proponent of dependency in a relationship—and of not making that a dirty word anymore. His perspective on parenting—and not putting a child at the center of your universe—is also compelling. As for deal breakers in a relationship: Yes, he says, they exist, although sometimes what might appear to be a deal breaker is actually wholly resolvable. And if you’re looking for a relationship, Tatkin says forget thinking about the perfect person, and consider your perfect relationship. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

On Addiction and Recovery
2463
“I didn't think that anybody thought or felt or experienced the world the way that I did until I came into recovery,” Bill Clegg tells our chief content officer, Elise Loehnen. Clegg is the author of two harrowing, poignant memoirs: Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man and Ninety Days. (He’s also a novelist—read Did You Ever Have a Family—and one of the most respected literary agents in publishing.) Clegg doesn’t often talk about his experience with addiction and recovery these days, which makes today’s conversation feel all the more intimate. Whether or not you recognize some piece of his story as your own or as belonging to someone you love, it’s a conversation that will stick with you. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Miracles from a Magic Shop
2187
“When we promote, if you will, acting compassionately, there’s a subset of people who look at this as a soft science,” says neurosurgeon James Doty, MD. But his research and that of others has demonstrated on a scientific level “that when you practice compassion with intention, it has a profound effect on your mental and physical health and wellness and even your longevity.” Today, Doty shares his unlikely personal story with us; we’ll call it miraculous, but he’s an atheist (who is best friends with the world’s great spiritual leaders). Doty, who had a challenging childhood, learned a few lessons—in a magic shop—at the age of twelve that changed his life forever. One was how to manifest, which set him on a course to becoming a successful neurosurgeon, Stanford professor, and wealthy entrepreneur. But it wasn’t until he went bankrupt and lost it all that he felt like he had gained everything. He wrote a book about it—Into the Magic Shop—and now runs the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford. His work helps us understand the soul of human relationships, their effect on the brain, and the immense power that each of us has to shape how we see the world and how it reacts to us.

Sticking to Plan A
2654
“I think we build up this thesis of who we are, and then it gets shook.” This is how Abbi Jacobson—one of the creators, executive producers, and stars of Broad City—begins to describe the ups and downs of her love life. And the road trip she departed on with a broken heart. It was this adventure that eventually became her poignant collection of personal essays, I Might Regret This. And it was on a different cross-country trek that she caught up with our chief content officer, Elise Loehnen, to talk about humor, aura readings, being a workaholic, how it’s hard to ask for help, and why we need to know it’s okay to rely on other people. Jacobson made us laugh—a lot. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

For starters, we’ll never look at a scale the same way again. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Why “Doing It All” Is a Con
2947
Greg McKeown is the New York Times–bestselling author of Essentialism, and he believes that we’ve been sold a bill of goods. The notion that we can (or should) do it all, that we can (or should) have it all, that this is what success is made of—it’s all a great con, says McKeown. But McKeown is not an advocate for saying no. What he does is help people identify the things that really matter to them and figure out how to make the space and time to pursue just those things. Maybe the biggest lesson he’s taught us is this: If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Gwyneth x Chrissy: On Food, Marriage, and Social Media
3143
Chrissy Teigen is one of the funniest people we know, arguably has the best clapbacks of all time, and knows how to cook the kind of meal everyone craves. This week, GP went over to Chrissy’s, and they talked about their shared love of food and how important it is to feel good about what you’re eating, without being too dogmatic about it. They chatted about marriage, and Chrissy told GP what she really loves about being with John Legend (which isn’t what everyone thinks). Of course, they talked through social media and what makes Chrissy who she is online. We felt like (wished) we were there drinking a glass of wine with them. (For more and to get Chrissy’s new cookbook, Cravings, head to The goop Podcast hub.)

Gwyneth on Perfectionism, Criticism, and Curiosity
3782
On the tenth anniversary of goop—which GP started from her kitchen in London—we’re turning the tables. In this special episode, GP herself is answering the questions, in an honest conversation with her friend and podcast cohost, goop’s chief content officer Elise Loehnen. Looking back, GP talks about mistakes she made in building a company, her inherent fear of intimacy, and how hard conscious uncoupling really is. She talks about getting comfortable with criticism, stepping away from perfectionism, and being curious about the different ways we can optimize our lives. Elise asks GP about getting married, parenthood, and “Faltrow-Martin” house rules. And GP shares her business philosophy, why she created a specific kind of culture at goop, and what it means to return home with a pop-up in Notting Hill. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

We Are Better than the Worst Things We’ve Done
2338
Bryan Stevenson, the New York Times–bestselling author of Just Mercy, has been called America’s Nelson Mandela by Desmond Tutu and Nicholas Kristof. As a civil rights lawyer, he’s liberated more than 100 people from death row, proving their innocence in the process. And as the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, he recently opened the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama, which commemorate lynching, slavery, terrorism against African Americans, Jim Crow, and mass incarceration in this country. They are stunning tributes that compel us to never repeat the worst of our past. Because of our history, Stevenson argues that no one in this country is really free, but he paints a path to a more just society in which we can all confront and overcome racial inequality. It’s a future that Stevenson feels really hopeful about, but not one that will materialize unless we act now.

The Talent Whisperer
2265
Literary agent Jennifer Rudolph Walsh runs the New York office of the mega entertainment and media company WME. And as its worldwide head of literary, lectures, and conference divisions, Walsh has a client list that reads like a who’s who of thought leadership: Oprah, Brené Brown, Alice Munro, etc. We got Walsh to pull back the curtain and tell us how she continues to find the next leading thinkers, all while taking no bullshit in an industry previously dominated by men. Through her brainchild, Together Live, a nationwide storytelling event, she reminds us of the power of storytelling to connect us all and the importance of finding voices that are typically underheard and underrepresented. She also explains why being a thought follower is a highly underrated cause. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

What “Problem” Kids Are Trying to Teach Us
2435
In this must-listen—whether or not you have or even want kids—Joe Newman, the author of Raising Lions, explains his simple, systems-based approach to conflict that could have a profound effect on our entire culture. And it starts with so-called problem children. Newman knows them well: He used to be one, a typical ADHD, disobedient type. Today, he’s able to connect with kids no one else seems able to reach, and he teaches his life-changing method to parents, family members, and educators. Newman’s perspective—on why things go off track, why so many of us were misjudged as kids, and why we continue to misunderstand kids today—challenges our preconceived notions of what it means to grow up.

Why Sex Therapists Don’t Care about Orgasms
2366
Sex therapist Stephen Snyder, M.D., is interested in the feelings behind sex, the feelings we get in thick of it, and the ones that sometimes keep us from connection and intimacy. Snyder is an associate clinical professor of psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine and has been in private practice in Manhattan for two decades. He’s come to believe that passion is inherently selfish, that sex should make you feel a little dumb, and that everyone thinks everyone else is having more (and better) sex than they are. Above all, he reminds us that we’re normal. For more, go to goop.com/thepodcast.

The Autoimmune Spectrum
2350
Will Cole, IFMCP, DC, takes an unorthodox approach to medicine, working closely with patients around the world and their primary care physicians or teams of specialists. As a functional medicine practitioner, Dr. Cole looks to optimize lab work beyond the range conventionally deemed “normal,” in large part to keep people off of an autoimmune spectrum he sees again and again. Cole’s approach to health is individual, but he explains why he’s a big fan of intermittent fasting, and why—good news—you can drink coffee during it. He also shares his food philosophy and the Ketotarian diet he created: a mashup of the best of the plant-based and ketogenic worlds. For more, go to goop.com/thepodcast.

The Mind Architect
2573
Peter Crone refers to himself as a “mind architect”: He helps people understand how their own perceptions, self-limiting beliefs, and words have shaped their reality—and he points out how to break free. As one friend of goop explained, a session with Crone is like being gently held while he simultaneously punches you in the gut. It is not always easy, but it is certainly cathartic. (For more, head to goop.com/thepodcast.)

2252
A cardiologist by training, Dr. Alejandro Junger is a trailblazer in functional medicine and the founder of the Clean program. He’s also goop’s OG expert M.D. and our constant guide through new paths of healing. One of the most powerful tools he uses to restore health is detoxification. Detox has become a hotly debated topic, but Junger says it’s not a modern concept, nor a fad, nor a method of deprivation. It’s a way, he believes, of removing blocks and filling in gaps so the body can recover its innate ability to heal itself.

Super Woman Syndrome
2860
Functional medicine doctor Taz Bhatia, M.D., says that stress overload manifests in different ways in her patients. For some, stress contributes to weight gain or weight loss resistance; for others, stress may be a factor in thyroid disorders, anxiety, PCOS, or gut issues. Here’s what Dr. Bhatia does not tell her patients: to slow down, to calm down, to give something up—things she has no interest in being told or doing herself. Instead, she has drawn from conventional medicine, Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, research, and her own health struggles to come up with a toolbox that women can use to optimize their health one simple, concrete step at a time.
