Stop Disease Before It Starts: A Gut Health Masterclass

This episode is unique. And it’s dense– in a good way. In the best way, actually. Today I’m talking with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, a gastroenterologist and gut health expert. When it comes to gut health, “Dr. B” is my go to source and after this, he’ll be yours too. His Instagram account @theguthealthmd is filled with tips, research, & even recipes. Everything is science based, it’s free, it’s fun, and dare I say, it’s digestible 😉 But the best part about this guy is that he’s an actual doctor...


Are Skinny White Girls Appropriating Body Positivity?

Body Positivity is such a loaded topic! I've been putting off recording this episode for a few weeks now because I really didn't know how to approach it. I figured the best way to approach this is to be sincere and explore perspectives besides just my own in the conversation, so that's exactly what we'll do. I'll talk a little about... - My own experience with body image & "positivity" - My personal interpretation of what the body positivity movement stands for - The Instagram interaction...

28 Questions I've Never Been Asked w/Erin Motz (Husband Interviewed Me!)

We had an idea to do an episode where Adrien (my husband & co-founder of Bad Yogi) interviews me as a "guest." This was exceptionally hilarious and fun because as the person who knows me netter than anyone, his questions were GOOD. He didn't ask anything obvious, didn't give me any softball questions, and made me reveal a few embarrassing facts about myself that I didn't intend to, lol. In this episode we talk about... - The biggest mistake I've made with Bad Yogi - Advice for people wanting...


How to Start Over: The Art of Reinvention with Matt Sydal

I have a super inspiring story to share with you today from an unlikely source. I mean, it's not unlikely if you ask me, because I know this person, BUT it might seem straight outta left field for the rest of you. Matt is an American pro-wrestler, futurist, and bad yogi. YES, he totally has "bad yogi" in his bio! I did not throw that in there myself! He's a professional wrestler and also the Impact Wrestling X-Division Champion. He spent years in the WWE, traveling the world in total...


Should you try the next medical marijuana? with Amber Sears

Amber Sears (formerly Zuckswert-- she just got married!) is somewhat of an expert in plant medicine, but especially ayahuasca. Some people are calling this the next medical marijuana, so it's definitely something you want to know about! We're talking about everything you didn't know about psychedelics, especially ayahuasca. From what it is, what it does, how you do it, to challenging my OWN bias against it, we're leaving no stone uncovered. We also get pretty deep and chat about the spirit...

We talk about every aspect of finding authentic success in today's episode, including... - How to pursue your passions when you still need to make money. Sure, it's not "all about the money" but you still don't want to be homeless! - Times in both our careers where we sacrificed the purity of our work...

Removing the spiritual connotation from yoga

We're continuing our conversation about spirituality from last week, this time taking it out of our daily life and into our yoga practice. Let's answer the age old question: do yoga & spirituality go together? Can they be separated? There's a few questions I wanted to answer around this subject, so buckle up, friends! Let's talk this through! Become a supporter of this podcast:


Catholicism to Atheism & Beyond: Let's talk spirituality

The other day I decided I was going to have one of those conversations everyone tells you never to have. Everyone says you should never talk about religion or politics in polite company. And when I’m around people I don’t know, I agree! If you invite me to your house for coffee or Thanksgiving dinner, I would never bring this stuff up! But when I’m around people I do know and enjoy talking to, I love talking about this stuff. I don’t find it distasteful or controversial because as long as we...

We'll talk about... - What is "sensitivity" & what do I mean by it? - How do we talk about controversial/potentially triggering topics without immediately being labeled as someone who has bad intentions? - My (somewhat) harsh opinion about sensitivity in our culture - My challenge to YOU Become a supporter of this podcast:


Relationship “Therapy” Part 2

RACE, CULTURE, & THE FALSE FAIRY TALE. After Relationship Therapy Part 1, we had such a huge response we knew we had to make a part 2. In this episode, we’re approaching it with the same attitude we did in the first one. We’ll speak from our experience and hopefully help you add some mindfulness to your own relationships, but please take “therapy” lightly. We’re not licensed pros, just two people sharing our personal experiences over the last 10+ years. In this episode we’ll talk about… +...


Relationship “Therapy”

I’ll just say right off the bat that we use the term “therapy” lightly here. We wanted to record a podcast together & do something for Valentine’s Day that wasn’t overly corny. I put the question out to social media asking what you’d like to hear us chat about when it comes to relationships. I was blown away by your vulnerability & openness, so I knew I had to make this episode available outside of iTunes, too 😉 This special episode is all about relationships, but mainly our own. We’ve...
