Gwyneth x Eddie Stern: The Punk Rocker Turned Yogi Who Changed Her Life

GP walked into one of Eddie Stern's Ashtanga yoga classes in the village twenty years ago, and he changed her life forever. Since then, they've become good friends (Stern officiated GP's wedding last year). In this intimate chat, they talk about those early days?when yoga was weird, when celebrities were sweating it out together at his school, when the consciousness in the culture shifted. They talk about Stern's brilliant new book, One Simple Thing; the science behind yoga and breath; how emotions express themselves through the body; freeing ourselves (from ourselves); and building in a pause when we're prone to freak out.

"I have not been able to find a single piece of research that tells me that anything bad happens when women have more money," says Sallie Krawcheck, CEO and cofounder of Ellevest. Krawcheck joins chief content officer Elise Loehnen to talk about why women make reallygood investors and how money can mean freedom. She talks about how she became the most powerful woman on Wall Street ("in the day," Krawcheck insists). She shares what she's learned about the ways men and women look at money and why women are taught to feel so much shame and guilt around it. And she teaches us what to do with money and how to start investing with whatever we have. Bonus: Krawcheck is giving all interested listeners $50 to start investing at Ellevest.com/goop or on the app with gift code goop. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Brian MacKenzie doesn't like when people tell him to "just breathe" either. So even though he's the founder of a (great, practical, helpful) breathing app (State), you won't hear those words coming out of his mouth. MacKenzie, the founder of Power Speed Endurance and a performance junkie, joins chief content officer Elise Loehnen to talk about tools for dealing with stress and anxiety. He explains the difference between sympathetic and parasympathetic personalities and how we can use this knowledge to plan our day in a way that avoids burnout. He explains why we don't make good decisions when we're stressed out (we default to habitual responses). He convinces us of the power of breath, tells us the times and places where mouth breathing is okay, and challenges us to get through a workout with our mouths shut. Learning to control our breath, MacKenzie says, helps us run our nervous system?rather than letting it run us. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

"Ninety-nine percent of the time when we use the word 'can't,' it's really a euphemism for 'won't,'" says entrepreneur Marie Forleo, the author of Everything Is Figureoutable. Forleo's specialty is bridging the gap between thinking about doing something and doing it. She believes that clarity comes from engagement, not thought. And that fear is directive, and that most of the time, it's "trying to nudge us to a project or a possibility or a growth edge where there's magic." She shares her tools for following fear and for pushing beyond the mental blocks that keep us from tackling our goals. She acknowledges how scary it can be to admit what we dream of doing?and how difficult it can be even to decipher what we want. She encourages us to imagine the worst-case scenario first and figure out how to work our way back from it. And then: Imagine the very-best-case scenario. And take a step, even a small step, toward it. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Peggy Orenstein, bestselling author of Girls and Sex, explores the gaps and nuances of intimacy. Today, she talks to Elise about how girls and women are taught that being sexy is important, but being "sexual" is reserved for men. They talk about why women are groomed to think about the potential dangers and harms of sex first?and why we often never learn to prioritize joy (or orgasm). Orenstein's research involves a lot of fieldwork?she visits fraternities the morning after a party to find out why texting a sexual partner the next day can be so fraught. She helps us reframe the way we think about sex and pleasure. She helps us take back control of our own sexual experience. And she guides us as we try to help our children and the generations behind us to grow into their own fulfilling intimate lives.  (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

This is a handbook for people of all political leanings and persuasions?and for people who aren't political at all but want to meaningfully engage with an issue. Shannon Watts?author of Fight Like a Mother, founder of Moms Demand Action, mother of five, and self-described type A personality?never thought she'd find herself leading a movement.

Although Michelle Pfeiffer and GP do talk about acting and costars, they also talk about who they are off-screen. They talk about why they both decided to get married a second time and what they've learned from committing to intimacy. And of course, they talk about how Pfeiffer got into nontoxic beauty, how she wound up on the board of the Environmental Working Group, and her innovative, incredibly cool line of clean perfumes, Henry Rose. After GP sampled each one, we knew we needed to get our hands on these fragrances, so we stocked every Henry Rose scent in the goop shop. Happy listening, shopping, and spritzing.

All parents need to know one thing, says Esther Wojcicki: "There is no perfect parenting." Wojcicki is the author of How to Raise Successful People, a legendary journalism teacher, and founder of the renowned Media Arts programs at Palo Alto High School. She's also the mother of three famously successful women. And today, she's sharing her formula for raising, mentoring, and developing people to reach their highest potential. It starts with her acronym TRICK: trust, respect, independence, collaboration, and kindness. If you're a parent, it involves giving yourself a break and finding ways to empower your children to be independent thinkers. And for many more of us (parents or not), it means rethinking our assumptions of what it takes to be happy, to be impactful, to be successful in the world. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

"We get into fear, and then we assume what we're feeling is ours," says Dana Childs, an intuitive and energy healer. Childs believes that a big part of the anxiety, fear, or even pain we feel?does not always belong to us. And that we have a tendency to take on the feelings (both emotional and physical) of others. She helps us to identify what's "ours." And to ask for permission to be free of what's not. She show us how she uses her intuition to guide her and others (couples included). Explains the difference between the spirit and the soul. And how we can use both to learn and grow. She reminds us that we're self-healing; and suggests that life is about peeling back the layers to reveal that already healed self within. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Jasmine Hemsley, the author of East by West, was in college when she realized the food she was eating (mainly cheese toasties, morning, noon, and night) was not serving her. Over time, she adapted Ayurvedic principles that changed her life. "Ayurveda is a philosophy that understands nature and helps you understand that you are nature," says Hemsley. She joins Elise Loehnen to talk about the three doshas and what they mean for our "digestive fire," what and how we eat, and how we think about optimizing our health. And if you're eating fish and chips at the airport: "Enjoy every mouthful, eat it slowly, chew it well?and be very grateful that you've got some food." (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)
