    Gwyneth Paltrow x Sherry Sami: The Presence Prescription

    Gwyneth Paltrow x Sherry Sami: The Presence Prescription

    “If you can’t be vulnerable, then how can you expect your patient to be vulnerable?” asks Sherry Sami, DDS. The integrative pediatric orthodontist and cofounder of Be Hive of Healing sits down with GP to help us gain a deeper understanding of holistic dentistry and the different elements that can promote healing. Sami is devoted to looking at the whole picture. She believes that “disharmony in the mouth” could even be linked to a detail from a child’s birth or the emotional traumas of their parents. Today, she shares fascinating (and sometimes heartbreaking) stories about patients she’s worked with. And she offers sage advice for parents: “Be very committed to your own healing, because that’s the best thing that you can do for your child.” (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    How Do We Untangle Depression?

    How Do We Untangle Depression?

    Functional medicine psychiatrist Jeffrey Becker, MD, takes an uncommon approach to depression, anxiety, and mental health. Becker, who is also a cofounder of Bexson Biomedical, examines the genome, the gut, and micronutrient levels before prescribing drugs to a patient. He was an early advocate of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy for treating depression. “We are absolutely the nexus of body, mind, and spirit,” says Becker. Today, he talks about the chemical, biological, emotional, and spiritual components of mental health. And he gets into a deeper conversation with host Elise Loehnen about consciousness. “There’s a lot of programming that has reduced our consciousness to a level that allows us to survive,” Becker says. When we honor the layers of our existence, he believes we can remove some of the limits we often struggle with in everyday life. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    Ending the War on Self

    Ending the War on Self

    “The cause of all suffering is what we’re thinking and believing,” says Byron Katie. Katie is a legendary spiritual teacher, the author of Loving What Is, and the creator of a self-inquiry method that she calls “the Work.” Today, Katie guides Elise Loehnen through the Work in her life. The process involves asking four basic questions that can turn a negative belief on its head. Katie reminds us that emotions are emotions—not enemies. She invites us to do deeper within and ask ourselves this question: Who would we be without our stories? (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    How Science Is Manipulated

    How Science Is Manipulated

    “It’s not really science,” says David Michaels, PhD. “It’s public relations disguised as science.” Today, the epidemiologist and author of The Triumph of Doubt explains how frequently science is manipulated across industries—from tobacco to personal-care products to football. During his tenure as the assistant secretary of labor at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Michaels uncovered shocking truths about the way major industries distort scientific studies and withhold information at the expense of consumer safety. To resolve this, Michaels believes we need to restructure the way research is conducted and how we consume it. He offers a few key solutions for creating change at the consumer level and beyond (like voting, banning attorney-funded studies, and consulting unbiased scientists to analyze data). Ultimately, this is work that will protect the integrity of science and keep us all safe. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    Gwyneth Paltrow x Mark Hyman: How We Vote with Our Forks

    Gwyneth Paltrow x Mark Hyman: How We Vote with Our Forks

    “Our votes with our fork, our votes with our wallet, make a difference,” says Mark Hyman, MD. He sat down with GP to talk about his latest book, Food Fix, and what led him on his own personal path into functional medicine. As a physician, Hyman looks for the root causes of chronic health issues—and the factors that contribute to optimal health. He says a lot of it boils down to food and our agriculture system. Hyman explains that disease is correlated with the way food is produced in our country (and around the world). The future, as he outlines it, is more hopeful than you might think, though: Big food companies are realizing they need to make changes. Farmers are being supported to increase regenerative agriculture and increase water conservation. And there’s a lot we can do now, today, on a personal level—and some of it is simple. “Just eat real food,” says Hyman.

    Breaking the Downward Spiral of Loneliness

    Breaking the Downward Spiral of Loneliness

    “We think about loneliness as a stereotype of the person sitting alone in a corner at a party,” says former surgeon general of the United States Vivek Murthy, MD. “But loneliness doesn’t usually look like that.” The author of Together joins host Elise Loehnen to explain the downward spiral of loneliness: When we don’t feel comfortable showing up as who we are, we tend to try to be somebody we’re not. And when we become focused on seeking validation from others, we feel even more isolated. Today, Murthy shares strategies for easing loneliness, building connection, embracing our vulnerability, and moving toward a people-centered life (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Love both hosts

I look forward to each podcast and think that both hosts are brilliant, with their different interviewing techniques. I enjoy Elise sharing her experiences and I think that she does so in a way that lends context and insight to the subject.

Disappointed

I’ve been a long term listener. However lately and particularly with the latest discussion with Dr Becker, I’m ready to turn off & unsubscribe. Apart from talking over the guests, Elise inserts her own experiences into the discussion taking away time where the guest can impart valuable knowledge. Elise sharing her experience with ketamine was highly unprofessional and not at all related to the topic of depression, anxiety and more broadly other mental health issues. Her giggling and silliness downplayed a very serious issue which was frustrating. I agree with other reviewers - GP interviewing style is more effective and the guest is heard.

Culture of busyness

Great content and very informative.
Some of my disappointment with goop podcasts generally is that I get a little fed up with the host talking far more than the guest. I really want to hear it what the guest has to say. I do want them to be saying “mmm” and “yeah” in agreement with you.
Gwyneth interviews her guests in such a relaxed manner, or so it comes across, I look forward to listening to those episodes. It does not feel like she is trying to prove that she “knows her stuff”.

No one could possibly know everything on every topic, please allow the guests space to speak and share their expertise. I understand that the art of a good interview is to create a conversation. But, competing with the guest for air time is suffocating the interview. Please focus on the priorities and what your role is in that moment of time...
