How to Be with the Partner You Picked

"Our memory is shit," says couples therapist and author of We Do Stan Tatkin. "It can't be relied on, and our perception is like a fun-house mirror.... And so that should give way to more cautiousness, more consideration, and more curiosity than we tend to have, especially in love relationships." Tatkin's approach to helping couples develop "secure-functioning relationships" is both realistic and optimistic. His work helps people better understand their partners so that they can become the best possible team together. Tatkin is a proponent of dependency in a relationship?and of not making that a dirty word anymore. His perspective on parenting?and not putting a child at the center of your universe?is also compelling. As for deal breakers in a relationship: Yes, he says, they exist, although sometimes what might appear to be a deal breaker is actually wholly resolvable. And if you're looking for a relationship, Tatkin says forget thinking about the perfect person, and consider your perfect relationship. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

"I didn't think that anybody thought or felt or experienced the world the way that I did until I came into recovery," Bill Clegg tells our chief content officer, Elise Loehnen. Clegg is the author of two harrowing, poignant memoirs: Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man and Ninety Days. (He's also a novelist?read Did You Ever Have a Family?and one of the most respected literary agents in publishing.) Clegg doesn't often talk about his experience with addiction and recovery these days, which makes today's conversation feel all the more intimate. Whether or not you recognize some piece of his story as your own or as belonging to someone you love, it's a conversation that will stick with you. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

"When we promote, if you will, acting compassionately, there's a subset of people who look at this as a soft science," says neurosurgeon James Doty, MD. But his research and that of others has demonstrated on a scientific level "that when you practice compassion with intention, it has a profound effect on your mental and physical health and wellness and even your longevity." Today, Doty shares his unlikely personal story with us; we'll call it miraculous, but he's an atheist (who is best friends with the world's great spiritual leaders). Doty, who had a challenging childhood, learned a few lessons?in a magic shop?at the age of twelve that changed his life forever. One was how to manifest, which set him on a course to becoming a successful neurosurgeon, Stanford professor, and wealthy entrepreneur. But it wasn't until he went bankrupt and lost it all that he felt like he had gained everything. He wrote a book about it?Into the Magic Shop?and now runs the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford. His work helps us understand the soul of human relationships, their effect on the brain, and the immense power that each of us has to shape how we see the world and how it reacts to us.

"I think we build up this thesis of who we are, and then it gets shook." This is how Abbi Jacobson?one of the creators, executive producers, and stars of Broad City?begins to describe the ups and downs of her love life. And the road trip she departed on with a broken heart. It was this adventure that eventually became her poignant collection of personal essays, I Might Regret This. And it was on a different cross-country trek that she caught up with our chief content officer, Elise Loehnen, to talk about humor, aura readings, being a workaholic, how it's hard to ask for help, and why we need to know it's okay to rely on other people. Jacobson made us laugh?a lot. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

"The more that ambivalent feelings can be brought to the surface, the safer the relationship is," says philosopher and writer Alain de Botton. The bestselling author (On Love, The Course of Love, How to Think More About Sex, etc.) sits down with our chief content officer, Elise Loehnen, to talk about the complexities of falling into, and out of, relationships. De Botton's perspective on intimacy is incredibly wise. He says that we are all still and will always be students of love. That no relationship should be judged by its length. That there's a lot of "politeness" in relationships that gets in the way of a deeper connection. And that the best insurance policy is remembering that we can never own or even fully know another person?and that we shouldn't skip the "little moments of tenderness" along the way.

Financial expert Farnoosh Torabi is the author of books including When She Makes More and the host of the podcast So Money. She knows how to help people get out of debt?and also when and why it might be wise to go into debt. She explores how people relate to money and everything that affects this relationship, beginning with the first messages we internalize as children. And she's opened up the conversation around gender and money, pushing us to reconsider how we perceive female breadwinners and how we receive the masculine energy that typically surrounds wealth and power.

How do endocrine-disrupting chemicals affect our health?and what can we do about them that isn't all-consuming and overwhelming? This is the focus of Jessica Helm's research. Helm is a postdoctoral fellow at Silent Spring Institute, and some of her most important work has examined ethnic disparities in chemical exposure and hormone-related health conditions. She's brilliant at coming up with simple ways that we can reduce our exposure to the chemicals of concern that show up in the products we use every day and in the environments where we spend most of our time. (See her app, Detox Me.) And Helm puts us at ease: You don't have to make over your home or swap every product you rely on all at once, she says. Take your time; do your best: "A single step and then another single step add up eventually to a journey." (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Howard Schultz, former Starbucks chairman and CEO, sits down in a New York City café with GP. Schultz, the author of the new book From the Ground Up, tells stories about the time Starbucks almost slipped away from him and about a moment that gave him a sense of spirituality. They talk about profit and conscience. About building a business with a core purpose in the midst of conflict. And about what Schultz calls "servant leadership," or recognizing that almost everything in life is a team sport. They talk about the country?about the American dream, political challenges, and where we might go from here. And of course, they swap coffee routines. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Functional nutritionist and author of The Rainbow Diet Deanna Minich, PhD, sees detox in part as a way of letting go of things that don't serve us. It is, she says, probably one of the oldest practices of humankind?to cleanse, to reevaluate what we need in our lives and what we don't. But she also believes that health should be a joy?pleasurable, fun?not deprivation. Which is why her approach to detox focuses on what we can add back in to really nourish the body, the mind, and the spirit. She thinks about well-being in terms of color and chakras, and she outlines her seven systems of health for us, which tie it all together. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

If you think the world is coming to an end, Steven Pinker says, think again. The experimental psychologist, Harvard psychology professor, and bestselling author of Enlightenment Now explains our tendency to look at the past through rose-colored glasses and view the present world much more pessimistically. He shows how our perception is distorted by headlines and gives us the real information that shows just how we're progressing. He makes the case that good news is just as worthy of reporting as bad news. And he makes us feel hopeful. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Longevity researcher Valter Longo is one of the world's leading experts on fasting. He's the director of the USC Longevity Institute and the author of The Longevity Diet. He's known in part for his exploration of intermittent fasting and the five-day Fasting Mimicking Diet that he developed in kit form. Elise Loehnen asks him to break down the phenomenon of intermittent fasting and share the forthcoming science that he's most excited about?the lifestyle interventions that could have massive impacts on how long we live and how healthy we are.
