    SPECIAL EPISODE: How to Manage Money through a Crisis

    SPECIAL EPISODE: How to Manage Money through a Crisis

    “What I know is that we’ve always recovered,” says Sallie Krawcheck, CEO and cofounder of Ellevest. The Wall Street legend and personal finance expert returns to The goop Podcast to demystify what’s happening right now in the fluctuating market and explain why she foresees it rebounding and what we can do in the meantime for our financial health. She suggests different ways to think about money during this crisis, whether you’re considering making an investment or trying to navigate some of the economic relief policies being set by the government. “We’ve been socialized as women that we’re not good with money,” says Krawcheck. But today, she’s helping us move away from this stigma, unlearn our scarcity mentality, and make empowered choices around the way we invest. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    The IQ Debate

    The IQ Debate

    “It’s really important to draw attention to not only the physical but also the mental consequences of a rampant environmental poisoning,” says medical ethicist Harriet A. Washington. In her book A Terrible Thing to Waste, Washington outlines the staggering, extensive impact of environmental racism. She examines how marginalized communities—and particularly the infants and children in these communities—are disproportionately affected by lead poisoning, atmospheric pollution, infectious disease, and industrial waste. In this conversation, she also takes on the IQ debate and the flawed science behind it. IQ, Washington reveals, is a misused metric that has had devastating effects on our country. And now, we have a critical opportunity to remedy many of these toxic effects. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    How to Solve Problems Before They Happen

    How to Solve Problems Before They Happen

    We celebrate the heroes who save the day, but what about all the people who keep the day from needing to be saved? In his new book, Upstream, New York Times–bestselling author Dan Heath teaches us ways to prevent and fix problems before they become problems. And in this conversation with Elise Loehnen, he tells us about times when upstream thinking has solved issues ranging from homelessness to poor graduation rates to mundane marital arguments. They examine how little tweaks in a big system can create massive change and why personalizing a systemic problem can make it more manageable. “We adapt to things so easily that we often adapt to problems that we never had to endure in the first place,” says Heath. But with more upstream thinking, we can save our endurance. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    SPECIAL EPISODE: Ways to Ground Yourself in Uncertain Times

    SPECIAL EPISODE: Ways to Ground Yourself in Uncertain Times

    Psychiatrist Judson Brewer, MD, describes anxiety as a form of uncertainty. How do we bring some certainty to our lives when our world feels out of control? Brewer says that becoming aware of our physiological needs—are we hungry, thirsty, tired?—can help us feel more secure. Being conscious about how we consume news can also help. Grounding techniques—try focusing your feet—can ease panic. Going for a walk is good, but instead of making it mindless, Brewer suggests changing your pace to match what your body needs. Host Elise Loehnen also asks Brewer how we can support friends in distress during the COVID-19 pandemic without becoming more distressed ourselves. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    Taking Collective Responsibility for Fixing Climate Change

    Taking Collective Responsibility for Fixing Climate Change

    “Climate change is a justice issue,” says journalist Tatiana Schlossberg, author of Inconspicuous Consumption. At In goop Health, Schlossberg sat down with Elise Loehnen to talk about how we can let go of individual guilt around climate change and move toward collective responsibility and meaningful change. She begins by taking some pressure off of consumers and illuminating the role companies do, should, and could play (for example, looking at just how much water is used to make a single pair of jeans). Schlossberg points out the brands and policies already making a positive difference and the large-scale shifts she still wants to see, such as stopping fossil fuel subsidies, the deforestation of Alaska, and drilling for oil and gas on public lands. On a more personal level, Schlossberg outlines ways to vote, advocate, shop, and eat that allow us to be part of the solution—without needing to be perfect. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

    SPECIAL EPISODE: What Happens during Prolonged Stress

    SPECIAL EPISODE: What Happens during Prolonged Stress

    “The reality is challenging, and then, of course, our fears about what might happen magnify immensely the actual situation,” says psychiatrist James Gordon, MD, author of The Transformation. Gordon returns to The goop Podcast to offer strategies that can help us during periods of prolonged stress: We learn how the amygdala and vagus nerve react to anxiety and how to ease it. Because stress can impact our digestive system, Gordon outlines mindful eating habits. He recommends certain supplements (like daily probiotics, vitamin D3, and omega-3 fatty acids) to help us maintain balance. He takes us through soft-belly breathing and a short meditation, and he explains other ways to release deep emotional tension through movement (shaking, dancing, chanting). Also helpful: laughter.

In response to “Ways to ground yourself during uncertain times”.

First let me say thank you for keeping great information coming to us during covid 19. This podcast was very helpful to me and if I can add I would say that in all times seeking balance is key. I have found that I am slowly tackling my endless to do list while sprinkling in home yoga, push up challenges and keeping present the good life that I have shared with my husband despite cabin fever challenges. Elise you are brilliant. Your’s is my favorite podcast collection and style. Thanks again!

Frustrating

Used to enjoy but I wish Elise would stop trying to sound smarter than the “experts”

A much needed refresher

Especially now more than ever (pandemic just ramping up, isolating, and staying safe and up to date on the actual facts of everything going on), it is so refreshing to be able to have Gwyneth on the Goop podcast. I feel so relieved to hear discussions and questions come up about topics like vulnerability, shame, vulvas, and tangible energy. It is always nice to be able to step away for an hour, take some much needed time for myself to relax, listen, learn, and then integrate. Always walk away feeling so calm and enlightened.
