    Meet Selena Gomez’s New Business Partner and Founder of The Newsette: Daniella Pierson

    Meet Selena Gomez’s New Business Partner and Founder of The Newsette: Daniella Pierson

    At just 26 years old, Daniella Pierson is nothing short of a media mogul. She’s the founder and CEO of The Newsette, a next generation media company that empowers, motivates, and informs women every morning through a daily newsletter. She started The Newsette as a sophomore in college, and today, The Newsette closed $40 million in revenue last year without any VC or investors, has over 500,000 subscribers, and hosted interviews with talent like DVF and Selena Gomez. With unparalleled skills in creating digital communities, it’s no surprise that Selena tapped her to be Co-CEO of their new mental fitness company, Wondermind. Alongside Mandy Teefey (producer Selena’s mother), the platform is launching later this year and aims to destigmatize and democratize mental health care through original content. In this episode, Daniella shares how she built a loyal online community, how she’s balanced her mental health journey and becoming a successful entrepreneur, and her next chapter alongside one of the world’s most famous and inspiring names.

    Are Mushrooms The Next CBD?

    Are Mushrooms The Next CBD?

    Today we’re demystifying one of the most compelling products on the wellness market today - mushrooms. Stephanie Moyal and Jake Mellman are cousins and the founder duo behind a new functional mushroom company called Troop, that aims to bring the power of mushrooms into your daily wellness routine with an assortment of gummies. With over 10,000 types of known mushrooms on the planet, they provide an incredibly wide range of benefits - from reducing stress, boosting energy, and focusing your brain. Not only are mushrooms being marketed as a new wellness product, but Psilocybin mushrooms (also known as magic mushrooms) are also becoming one of the most controversial yet promising topics in wellness - with high success rates when used in therapy settings to reduce depression, cure addiction, and trauma. Stephanie and Jake share their experiences with incorporating functional mushrooms into their daily routine, the unpredictable yet exciting future of the industry, and how they plan to disrupt and dominate the market with Troop.

    Hunter Harris Unpacks Succession’s Season 3 Finale, Vacationing In Italy With The Roys, And Going Team Tom

    Hunter Harris Unpacks Succession’s Season 3 Finale, Vacationing In Italy With The Roys, And Going Team Tom

    For our last episode of 2021, we welcome back pop culture writer and Twitter’s favorite critic Hunter Harris to unpack the Season 3 finale of Succession. When it comes to Succession, there’s no voice we trust (or refresh our feeds more for) than Hunter's. This past summer she spent two weeks on set with the Roys for the filming of the highly anticipated season and profiled the cast for Vulture. She publishes a widely beloved column Succession Power Rankings after each episode on her Substack “Hung Up” and is notoriously known for her incredibly witty and sharp commentary of television’s most controversial family. Today we breakdown the episode - from our favorite performances, to going Team Tom, and who remains in power after that *shocking* ending.

Easy listen, story telling

Super casual, easy to listen to. Love hearing people’s stories and Liv directs a beautiful conversation. Especially loved Joe’s episode - so informative, definitely expanded my wellness knowledge and thoughts

Used to be better

I used to love this podcast and it’s great variety of creative minds, unique individuals and their interesting journeys. Since season 2 launched however, Liv has massively “dumbed down” the interviews with primitiv commentary (every second sentence has a “like” or “literally” in it), making every story about herself (turning every anecdote of her interviewees into a story about her win life). Big shame as this used to be my go to podcast. Hopefully it will pick up again.
