    Ep 60: Why Metabolic Health Matters with Zane Griggs | The Courtenay Turner Podcast

    In this episode, Courtenay and Zane blend together two of this podcast’s favorite topics: health and politics. With a deep-dive into the world of ‘Big Food’, this conversation highlights the importance of prioritizing metabolic health to combat viruses and chronic illness. By reassessing consumption of processed foods and focusing on nutrient-dense, local sources, you can reduce overall inflammation and set yourself up for longevity. Foods really can serve as medicine!


     


    Zane Griggs has been a fitness trainer since 1998. He is well-known for his appearance on ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss seasons 1 and 4, where he helped two participants reach their goal of losing half their body weight over the course of a year. He went on to write his first book, Low Carb Lifestyle & Weight Loss Made Simple, in 2019 to further share his extensive expertise with the world and now is the host of his own podcast Hunger Hunt Feast. Zane attributes his passion for weight loss and longevity to his wife and children, who motivate him to practice what he preaches and maintain optimal levels of health and fitness at any age... and he’s here to share how you can, too!

    Ep 58: Conservative Comedy That Fights Back with Seth Dillon | The Courtenay Turner Podcast

    Ep 58: Conservative Comedy That Fights Back with Seth Dillon | The Courtenay Turner Podcast

    In this episode, Courtenay and Seth discuss the use of satire to fight back and push the pendulum in the other direction. As Seth explains, humor is a beautiful way to disarm people and escape their defenses. When you combine comedy with intention, you have the ability to not only make people laugh, but to also make them think. This conversation raises eyebrows to many insightful points when it comes to sensitivity, safe spaces, and overall equality.


    Seth is the CEO of The Babylon Bee and co-founder of Not The Bee, conservative satirical sites pertaining to politics, Christianity, and life itself. Alongside his media empires, Seth also invests in startup companies and enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons.

    Ep 57: Prioritizing Intuitive Training for Women with Natalie Newhart | The Courtenay Turner Podcast

    Ep 57: Prioritizing Intuitive Training for Women with Natalie Newhart | The Courtenay Turner Podcast

    In this episode, Natalie and Courtenay talk about finding freedom and peace within fitness. Since women are more complex due to their hormones, body design, and menstrual cycles they require customized and adaptable training routines to fully honor their uniqueness. When following intense programs or “one-size-fits-all” methods to getting fit, women will often gain weight, experience adrenal fatigue, and ultimately burn out. In this conversation, Natalie dives into why this happens and how to transform it.


     


    Natalie Newhart is a former CrossFit Games competitor turned full-time nutrition coach, specializing in women’s health. She began training in CrossFit back in 2009, leading her to quit her government job as a hydrologist and open her own gym. Her dedication to the sport placed her in 8th overall at the 2015 South Regionals. With an innate competitive spirit, Natalie shares how her intensity as an athlete caused many health complications like diabetes, early onset menopause, and adrenal fatigue. Realizing how damaging overtraining was becoming to her body, she became fiercely committed to helping other women achieve results with more intuitive strategies and less stress.

    Ep 55: The Psychology of Politics with Dr. Gina Loudon| The Courtenay Turner Podcast

    In this episode Courtenay and Dr. Gina discuss the mental fabrics that thread political ambitions. There’s no mistaking that what we’re seeing today is spiritual warfare. There’s those whose motives stem from self-serving power and those who are on a mission to serve a Higher Power. As the world slowly awakens, this psychological awareness allows us to better navigate challenges and make more intentional decisions about future candidates.


    Dr. Gina Loudon is a conservative media personality as seen on major networks including Fox News, Fox Business, CSPAN, and ABC. She’s currently the president of programming and senior anchor at Real America’s Voice (RAV-TV) and holds the title as a bestselling author for her three publications. She is well known for her service as a member of the Trump campaign’s media advisory board and the co-chair of Women For Trump 2020. Gina holds two master's degrees, one being in Counseling, and a PhD in Human and Organizational Systems. Through many nominated awards and accolades over the years, Gina has proven to be a woman of incredible impact!

    Ep 54: The Power is The People with Jason Preston | The Courtenay Turner Podcast

    Ep 54: The Power is The People with Jason Preston | The Courtenay Turner Podcast

    In this inspiring episode, Courtenay and Jason discuss the restoration of hope through empowered personal responsibility and action-taking. During a time that feels extremely defeating as censorship expands, the debate is silenced, and power feels like it’s heavily delegated to corrupt politicians, Jason reminds us that the power always belongs to the people. Now, more so than ever, is the time to push fear aside and take a stand by getting involved.


    Jason is a Utah native, successful entrepreneur, husband, and father of two daughters. Never one to turn down a challenge, he’s committed to protecting the Constitution during this critical time in history. In pursuit of doing his part, Jason is running for Utah’s 3rd Congressional District with the mission of putting the power back into the hands of the people.

Hollywoodnative ,

Courtenay Turner is brilliant!

Courtenay is not only brilliant but she is kind, thoughtful, vivacious, and funny. She’s very gracious host and digs deeply into many pertinent topics of the day. Wonderful interviewer and great guests and topics!

OtterZ1 ,

Fresh perspective deep understanding

Courtenay Turner brings a fresh perspective to the table that I don't find anywhere else. She is knowledgeable in so many areas and that lends itself to a deeper understanding of the connections of seemingly disparate issues. She engages her guests in a respectful and thoughtful manner that is lacking with many other hosts. I highly recommend her podcast.

SuthernRedRoar ,

RED PILL from the West Coast for the REAL world

Care to have a listen that moves fast and makes multiple points beyond mere D’s and R’s from a West Coast perspective? LISTEN.

Courtneay and her guests cover history to current events. Her basis from health to critical thinking with philosophy and valuable information are refreshing in these times. It’s also appreciated as one of the growing female voices. I’ll be curious to listen to her evolution as time moves along.
