#27 COREY CALLIET
COREY CALLIET (Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian) went from selling drugs in the South to working as a mailman to thriving as the nation's top fitness trainer and the go-to guru for actors like Michael B. Jordan and Jasmine Sanders.

"If you don't know yourself, then anyone can say who you are." - Corey Calliet
#26 Molly Anne Dameron
Molly Anne Dameron has overcome the harshest of adversities in the name of mental illness, drug addiction and sexual and psychological abuse -- and lives to tell the story. We go into why she skateboarded 812 miles from Maine to New Jersey, why she finds AA meetings triggering, what she does to maintain her sobriety and how she provides a voice to the voiceless today.
We cover a lot in this episode - and you don't want to miss it.
#25 Hayley Herms
HAYLEY HERMS is a stunning plus-size model, influencer and entrepreneur -- and is known for her record-breaking weight loss on Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian. We discuss her former life as a gang member, her profound involvement with the Free Britney movement, overcoming a history of abuse, being flexible with pronouns -- and being the only plus-size model that does one-on-one coaching on how to be a plus-size model. Hayley is a delightful breath of fresh air and an inspiration to all.
#24 Ashley and Elaine!
It's a solo episode today with Ashley and Elaine !
It starts off a little serious but turns around quickly - so listen up for some good stuff!
They talk about cancel culture, career aspirations as a kid, why having junk food in the house as a kid led Elaine to a healthy mindset and how Ashley not having a backup plan has led to her badassery today.
#23 ALEX MICHAELIDES
We have ALEX MICHAELIDES on the show today. He is the brilliant British Cypriot NYT bestselling author of THE SILENT PATIENT and THE MAIDENS (out now!).
We go deep and talk about how his dark and emotionally eerie and layered characters are self-composites, how his relationships mimic patterns he had with his father -- and how his secret to success is to not aim to please anyone. But instead, to say F it, focus on yourself and meditate.
He may or may not have told us that his interview with KIMCHI + CHALLAH is his favorite to date!
