What drives people to change, to heal, to reinvent themselves? How do we reclaim our health, bounce back from heartbreak, flip the script? On goopfellas, two friends who have become familiar with unlikely personal transformations have raw conversations with people who have experienced profound shifts in perspective and well-being. Together, functional medicine practitioner Will Cole, DC, and chef Seamus Mullen get at the catalysts that bring people out of their dark night and into their purpose. Each of their goopfellas guests—from athletes to actors to authors—is different. As are the hosts: Mullen himself almost died from rheumatoid arthritis, and Cole’s day job is helping people uncover and overturn the roots of dis-ease. But you’ll likely see pieces of yourself in all their conversations, reflected in every one of their challenges. And we hope, from the lessons they learned along the way, you’ll find something you need to bring about a change, big or small, in your own life.

    Mark Hyman: How to Fix Our Food System

    Mark Hyman: How to Fix Our Food System

    Mark Hyman, MD, author of Food Fix, lays out a master plan for reversing the global epidemic of chronic disease. Hyman explains the way our food industry undermines our health, economy, and environment. The statistics he’s gathered are staggering: We spend an estimated $2 trillion worth of resources on growing food that is thrown away. According to the UN, we have about sixty crop cycles left. The conventional way we grow food is destroying the quality of our soil. The goodnews? Converting to regenerative agriculture could stop climate change for the next twenty years,says Hyman. Bipartisan teams are campaigning to drive policy change—and senators and congresspeople are listening. Consumers are changing their choices and voting with their wallets and forks, says Hyman. There are options for composting and ways to avoid industrial-made foods and GMOs. (And you can support campaigns like FoodPolicyAction.org to hold legislators accountable for their votes on food and farm policy.) When we look at the big picture, we’re able to see that although food is the cause of the problem, it may also be the cure, says Hyman.

    Doug Braun-Harvey: The Sexual Lives of Men

    Doug Braun-Harvey: The Sexual Lives of Men

    “The erotic is expected to be sacrificed in the name of these cultural narratives,” says psychotherapist Doug Braun-Harvey. “And that’s a big conflict.” As a certified sex therapist, Braun-Harvey has focused on helping men with out-of-control sexual behavior or with what feel like uncontrollable urges. He believes that we shouldn’t look at sexual behavior as a disease or an addiction. And that oftentimes, a man’s perceived dysregulated sexual behavior is an attempt to solve an issue with deeper roots. Braun-Harvey explains how erotic conflicts arise in relationships—and how to work through them. He also makes a case for reframing pornography: Let’s start by calling it sexual imagery, he says. Ultimately, his work lies in helping men express themselves sexually in a way that doesn’t feel out of control and that allows them to keep their agreements with themselves and others.

    Chris Winfield: How We Connect

    Chris Winfield: How We Connect

    “One of the biggest misconceptions is that people don’t want to help you,” says entrepreneur Chris Winfield. The cofounder of Super Connector Media, Winfield is known for getting good at—you guessed it—connecting and networking with people in a different, deeper way. His personal story includes a failed business, a rocky path to sobriety, and a challenge to himself: to meet with one new person every day. The rules? To be open, honest, and vulnerable with each person. And to ask what they need from him, rather than the other way around. Winfield’s intimate conversation with the goopfellas covers imposter syndrome, the ways addiction can fuel self-sabotaging behaviors, and the daily routines (that we love and hate) that set us up for success.

Not a fella

Am a she, but still living the podcast. As a massive bratpack fan I had to listen to the Rob Lowe interview which was fab, but also learning a lot with your conversations about nutrition and exercise too.
