    The Uninhabitable Earth

    The Uninhabitable Earth

    David Wallace-Wells is a lifelong New Yorker. He is not a lifelong environmentalist—“at all,” he says. He came of age in the ’90s, drank a lot of “that development, globalization, neoliberal Kool-Aid and really felt the world was getting better and richer.” But learning more about climate change scrambled a lot of his assumptions about the world and our place in it. Today, Wallace-Wells is a columnist and deputy editor at New York magazine and the author of the critically acclaimed number one New York Times bestseller, The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming. In this conversation with Elise Loehnen, he explains what lies ahead, what policies should be changed, what possible solutions and technologies give him reason to feel optimistic, and what we need to learn from COVID-19 in order to equip ourselves to respond to pandemics of varying natures. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    What’s Your Map to Arousal?

    What’s Your Map to Arousal?

    “That taboo dark energy around our sexuality can be a place of great expansion,” says somatic sexologist andeducator Jaiya, who has spent the last two decades studying what turns people on. Jaiya developed something called the Erotic Blueprint, an arousal map that reveals your specific erotic language—sensual, sexual, kinky, energetic, or shapeshifter. She explains how we can discover our own language, better understand a partner’s language, and use this road map to embrace and fulfill our desires. (Take Jaiya's Erotic Blueprint quiz here.)

    Why We Need to Stop Checking Boxes

    Why We Need to Stop Checking Boxes

    “When you push people to be colorblind, not only are you pushing them to not see color; you’re pushing them to not see the harm that comes from color,” says Jennifer Eberhardt, PhD. Eberhardt is a social psychologist, a Stanford professor, and the author of Biased, a thoroughly researched, compelling, and comprehensive book on uncovering prejudice and addressing it. Everyone is affected by racial bias, says Eberhardt, but you can learn to override it. Today, she shares critical facts, tools, and strategies that anyone can (and should) use to be part of a meaningful solution. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    When We Stop Trying to Absolve Ourselves of Guilt

    When We Stop Trying to Absolve Ourselves of Guilt

    “The urge to absolve oneself is a kind of low-level thing where we’re trying to get away from our own complicity,” says psychiatrist Mark Epstein, MD. Epstein is the author of Advice Not Given, and his work lies at the intersection of Buddhism and psychotherapy. Today, he’s teaching us about what motivates people and what happens when we let guilt guide our decision-making. He also teaches us about coping with feelings of isolation, confronting complicity, working our way back to the present when our mind wanders, and transmuting anger and rage into compassion.

    Gwyneth Paltrow x Rick Doblin: What’s an MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy Session Like?

    Gwyneth Paltrow x Rick Doblin: What’s an MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy Session Like?

    “Whatever is emerging, we want to help people explore it and experience it,” says Rick Doblin. GP interviewed the founder and executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) about the impact MDMA-assisted psychotherapy may have on PTSD, eating disorders, alcoholism, and other forms of trauma. Doblin explains the landscape of psychedelic research, how it’s changed, and how close we may be to making MDMA-assisted psychotherapy a legal prescription treatment for PTSD. They also talk about what happens during an MDMA therapy session; how people store, process, and release memories; and what connects one person to another and to the world. Go to MAPS to learn more and to join GP in donating to a fund that supports BIPOC PTSD patients going through treatment and BIPOC therapists going through MAPS training. (And a PSA in case you’re new here: The legal status of psychedelics depends on where you use them. In the US, recreational use is illegal. If psychedelics are taken without careful attention to dose, set [mindset], and setting [environment], it’s possible for things to go wrong. As always, consult your doctor before beginning any protocol.)

    How to Sleep Well

    How to Sleep Well

    “The more logical you are in your approach to your sleep, the more you’re going to screw it up,” says sleep specialist Rafael Pelayo, MD. Pelayo is a clinical professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Stanford Center for Sleep Sciences and Medicine and the author of the forthcoming book How to Sleep, which will be published in December 2020. Today, Pelayo answers our most pressing sleep questions: What’s really happening when we’re dreaming? Why do we sleep? Can we catch up on sleep? How much sleep do kids need? What causes sleep to become dysfunctional or disordered? How much are you affected by the way your partner sleeps? What can we do to feel rested when we wake up?

Insightful, relevant and game changing

I absolutely love the Goop podcast - the conversations here are game changing, powerful and on point. The Goop Podcast is having conversations that most of the main stream media are afraid to have. Challenging inequality, supporting women and calling out the need for change NOW and racking the systemic abuse of people by big pharma, mass produced rubbish food, environmental racism and so much more. The best thing ever and a cheering, supportive voice during lock down. Well done team Goop. You are loved and appreciated.

Always something thought provoking

Thank you for asking the CEO of Disney how he managed his role at work with his role as a father. More men need to be asked this question, especially those in senior roles, as so many women in similar roles are always asked this.
