    Nathan Wallis

    Nathan Wallis

    Calling Nathan Wallis an amazing neuroscientist doesn’t do him enough justice. He’s one of New Zealand’s most prominent experts on raising children, as well as living well as an adult, and the way he helps people to do that is just so good.

    There is something in this episode for everyone - from parents to children themselves, and even grandparents. Nathan has such incredible knowledge about the first three years of a baby’s life, to teenagers, to adulthood. He touches on things like how to talk to babies, how to (realistically) manage screen time - and the years when it can be worst for kids - how to encourage self worth in people of all ages, and so much more.

    What he says makes total sense, it’s in plain language, and it’s all backed by research. What he has to say is actually just so important as well - this is an episode about how to get the most out of our brains and our lives. You cannot miss this one!

    You know those podcasts with nutritionists that focus on one thing, and if you’re not interested in it then it’s just boring? This is not one of those! 

    Dr. Cliff Harvey and Bella Marinkovich are nutritionists that focus on holistic health - and this includes so much more than you’d think. They have amazing tips on the stuff you’d expect: experimenting with different diets, fasting and supplements, but they also have some incredible knowledge on edible weeds, dealing with adrenal fatigue, the growing problem of under-eating and even the little-known benefits of microdosing hallucinogens. 

    Whatever your interests, there is something in this one for you. It’s a light-hearted, fun and informative deep dive that really does offer something for everyone.

    Damian Chaparro

    Damian Chaparro is the founder of Aro-Ha retreats near Queenstown, New Zealand. He helps thousands of people a year to get away from their busy lives, wind down, and incorporate better self-care in their routines. This is a great podcast for anyone looking for practical ways they can handle daily stresses that often end up becoming too much.

    Damian is an experienced meditation practitioner, and talks about how significant even basic meditation can be for re-setting yourself and seeing your problems for what they are. (Spoiler alert: they’re often really insignificant). 

    He also touches on social media, screen time, Covid, human connection, and how the right approach to all these things can take a massive weight off anyone’s shoulders. This is one for the self love club!

    “One piece of cake is not going to heal or harm you - it’s just cake.” This is why we love Michelle Yandle - the nutritionist who encourages people to eat what makes them feel good.


    Michelle is the woman behind empowered eating, which is all about understanding what you’re eating, and eating whatever makes you feel good. The only rule is that there are no rules - listen to your body, eat what you feel like, and if it doesn’t work for you then don’t beat yourself up about it.


    She talks about how polishing off a block of chocolate doesn’t make you a bad person, and how the key to balanced, healthy eating is understanding why we feel like having a binge, and treating it as a learning experience. This is a really liberating approach to nutrition that is as much about mental health as it is about physical.

    Plant-based diets are on a massive rise, and Simon Hill is at the forefront of it. As the man behind the Plant Proof website, podcast and blog, Simon is dedicated to answering all the questions people have about plant-based diets.


    Simon has a masters in nutrition, and uses his vast knowledge and research to back up his tips about how to make a plant-based diet work for your own individual lifestyle. He’s also amazing on the environmental effects of meat production - for example, did you know that meat provides just 18% of our daily calories, but animal agriculture uses 83% of farmland worldwide, and produces 80% of the greenhouse gas emissions from our food?


    What makes Simon really unique is he has something for everyone - whether you’re completely new to plant-based eating, or fully immersed in it. He talks about how to slowly transition into eating more plant foods, and how to adjust your plant diet to work for you.

The absolute best

This podcast is hilarious and I so genuinely enjoy listening to it. I’ve followed you both on socials from the very beginning when The Bachelor was filmed in the house next door to mine. You two are so fabulous and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

The odd decent interviewee, shame about the raciest hosts

Only listened to the james smith interview. Otherwise i wouldnt have dreamt of giving these two raciest washed up “influencers”, (and i use the influencer term flippantly), airtime. It’s not that hard to say sorry is it, and i quote “its not that we arent sorry, cos we are”, yet you seem unable to simply say “ i am sorry for making raciest remarks”, because that’s what they were!

Solid Pass

Here for James Smith - he didn’t disappoint but I’d never listen to another episode, given how atrocious the hosts are.
