    Gwyneth Paltrow x Robin Wright: Honing Your Creative Vision

    Gwyneth Paltrow x Robin Wright: Honing Your Creative Vision

    GP is joined today by an actress, producer, and director whose work she’s admired for many years, Robin Wright. Wright has just released her feature directorial debut, Land (which she also stars in), about a woman suffering immeasurable loss who retreats to an abandoned cabin in the Rockies to find a new way to heal. Today, they talk about making career pivots, executing an artistic vision, and betting on yourself. They also discuss how we heal from trauma and why Wright felt called to make a movie about human kindness. “When you are faced with adversity,” says Wright, “it’s other humans that help pull us through and give us faith to live.” (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    Gwyneth Paltrow x Ethan Kross: Harnessing Your Inner Voice

    Gwyneth Paltrow x Ethan Kross: Harnessing Your Inner Voice

    “When something bad is happening, we tend to focus on that problem really narrowly,” says psychologist Ethan Kross. “But if you lose the ability to step back and see the bigger picture, that's when it can become problematic.” Kross explains how negative chatter can impact our lives and how our ability to introspect can better serve us. He also walks GP through his tools to soothe our inner voice when we find ourselves ruminating. “Negative emotions like anger, sadness, anxiety—they're good for us in small doses,” says Kross. “When they become bad is when we bathe in them.” (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    Gwyneth Paltrow x Kristine Gedroic: How Do We Heal—and Prevent—Chronic Illness?

    Gwyneth Paltrow x Kristine Gedroic: How Do We Heal—and Prevent—Chronic Illness?

    “Sometimes the greatest strength comes from holding course when there aren’t answers, when there isn’t the best outcome around the corner,” says Kristine Gedroic, MD. Gedroic is a Harvard graduate, a fellow of the American Board of Family Medicine, and the author of A Nation of Unwell: What Went Wrong?. She’s spent the past decade helping thousands of patients heal from chronic illnesses. She’s the kind of doctor people turn to when they feel like they’ve already tried everything. She joins host Gwyneth Paltrow today to talk about her journey to integrative medicine (which began with her own health scare), how to optimize our body’s own detoxification pathways, and the key foods and herbal remedies that she regularly leans on.

    Gwyneth Paltrow x John Chester: Living in Disharmony with Nature

    Gwyneth Paltrow x John Chester: Living in Disharmony with Nature

    “There’s no such thing as a perfect harmony with nature,” says John Chester, the farmer and filmmaker behind The Biggest Little Farm. “There’s a comfortable level of disharmony. There is purposefulness in this disharmony.” Chester and his wife, Molly, founded a regenerative biodynamic farm (Apricot Lane Farm) that became famous through their stunning documentary. He joins GP today to talk about what he’s learned over the last decade being in deep relationship with the ecosystem of his land and how he and Molly have reframed their many roadblocks into opportunities (and found patience when their end goal was nowhere in sight). He and GP also talk about how soil health impacts the quality of our diets, things to look for on a food label, and his hopes for the future of American farming. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    Uncovering the Cost of Saving a Life

    Uncovering the Cost of Saving a Life

    “When you have someone in your life who is experiencing illness, especially as a young person, it can be so impossible to bear witness to that,” says author Katherine E. Standefer. “Because then you are confronted with your own lack of control.” Standefer’s debut memoir, Lightning Flowers: My Journey to Uncover the Cost of Saving a Life, is stunning. Today, she joins host Elise Loehnen to tell the story of the rare diagnosis that led her on a mission deep into our fractured medical system. She shares what it was like to sit with vulnerability, what she learned from the avoidant tendencies of many of her doctors, and how she began to make sense of her complicated relationship with the medical advancements that were meant to save her. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Not bad but a little self indulgent

Sometimes they discuss things that are trite in my opinion and show the level of awareness they are actually at despite the high opinion they have themselves for being “so conscious”... but I will say that Elise is a profound thinker and asks great questions. I think Gwyneth’s conversations can be a little fake and she’s too focused on her image to dish out the same level of authenticity that Elise projects.

Missing Eloise

Such a smart , lucid, inspiring, articulate woman. Can she come back when she finishes her book?

Do you actively listen...

Hello. I have read reviews both breathlessly complimentary and some not-so-good. My question is, do you listen to the feedback? The content is great, no doubt about it. But the delivery! Gwyneth asks thoughtful questions but the podcasts could embrace more ideas and not just the thoughts and beliefs du jour. There needs to be more scope. I’ve wanted to listen to Elise’s podcasts more but I find her voice, tone, and self focus so annoying that I gave up. I know other listeners have addressed this but her conversations sound exactly the same now as they did when she began. She needs a coach of some sort, to help her learn how to do interviews. Please don’t ask us to “like, rate and review” if you’re not going to listen. This is constructive criticism, and not intended to be personal.

Update: what a treat to have several episodes in a row with Gwyneth as host. To keep it positive, please put yourself in the place of Listener before recruiting any more cohosts. If there has to be a cohost, please consider their experience and “listenability” before placing them. Someone who is brilliant in their role may not necessarily be suited to host a podcast. Thank you.
