Bonus episode: International Women's Day

This week we are celebrating International Women’s Day right across Headspace, so I wanted to return to the podcast archives for an episode that I found particularly inspiring. There have been some incredible women on the podcast to date: marathon swimmer Diana Nyad, comedian Ruby Wax, Brainpickings founder Maria Popova, aspiring astronaut Kellie Gerardi, the list goes on. But I wanted to return to a conversation that profoundly impacted me in terms of understanding what it means to take...

#50 Add One Thing: Coach Jim White

This week we release episode 50 of Radio Headspace, an exciting milestone which we celebrate with a very special episode. As part of our Add One Thing, Change Everything series, I got to interview a true local legend this week. Coach Jim White is the real life inspiration behind the 2015 Disney movie, McFarland USA, about a team of unlikely high school cross country runners who managed to change their town forever. I went to McFarland High School to interview Danny Diaz, a former cross...

#48- Add one thing, change everything

For the next few weeks on Radio Headspace, I’ll be talking to the people who’ve added one thing to the world, and changed everything. Whether that’s an invention, an idea, a film, a movement- i’ll be talking to the people who have changed everything, for the better. Whether that’s in their community, their home town, their country, or even the world. I’ll be bringing you these stories throughout this month, but I wanted to start with that one thing we can all do as individuals to make a...

#47- If we weren't afraid

Radio Headspace launched in January of this year, and almost a million of you have tuned in since then, so thank you to all of you who’ve supported us in 2015. This is our last episode of the year, and going into the new year, change is often at the forefront of our minds. I wanted to use this episode to prove that change is possible and doesn’t need to be so scary. This episode features a conversation with Natalie Wellington, whose name may sound familiar if you’re a reader of the...

Bonus Episode on Change

Why are we sometimes so afraid of change? And what makes us more likely to take a risk? This week on Radio Headspace, I talk to Dr. Claudia about our fear of the unknown, and what risk looks like in the brain. Next week, we’ll be taking a deeper look into what it takes for people to make a life-changing decision, and what gets in the way.

#46 - On fearing loneliness

Radio Headspace #46: On Fearing Loneliness This month on Radio Headspace we’re going to be talking about our fears - fear of the unknown, fear of starting something new and fear of what other people think of us. We start this week by talking about our fear of loneliness, particularly around this time of year. Loneliness appears as the one of the things we’re most scared of, according to our online search history, but there are people trying to do something about that. On this episode, I’m...

Bonus episode: 'Retail therapy' with Dr Claudia

Does shopping make us happy, and is “retail therapy” a real thing? Dr. Claudia, our resident neuroscientist, returns to Radio Headspace this week for a bonus episode that explores these questions and investigates what’s happening in the brain when we shop. For more on our relationship with stuff, check out last week’s episode with designer Thomas Thwaites and marketing expert, professor Agnes Nairn.

#45 - Thomas Thwaites and Agnes Nairn 'on stuff'

Today’s episode of Radio Headspace is released on America’s biggest shopping day, Black Friday, so I wanted to use this half hour to examine our relationship with stuff. Why do we want it, how do we relate to it, and do we care about how it’s made? My guests this week are designer Thomas Thwaites, who has over a million views to date on his TED talk about building a toaster from scratch. We also discuss his forthcoming project, GoatMan, which is as absurd and brilliant as it sounds. I’ll...

Bonus Episode: Mindful Eating

A brand new episode of Radio Headspace will be coming your way next week, but with Thanksgiving just around the corner, we thought we’d circle back to the topic of mindful eating. Here is a bonus conversation with the Founder and CEO of Thrive Market, Gunnar Lovelace. Gunnar came into the studio earlier this year to talk about the community beginnings of Thrive Market, the way he’s making healthy eating an option for everybody and the greater implications of our grocery shopping choices....

#42- Reconnect to the one you love

Reconnecting With The One You Love is an episode we made back in February, and features advice from award-winning relationships expert Laurie Davies, as well as a conversation on the neuroscience of dating with Dr. Claudia Aguirre. In case you missed it, we wanted to put this back out into the ether seeing as it’s our Love week this week. This episode also comes with some news from Radio Headspace. We’re working on lots of new things over at Headspace right now, and the podcast is also...

#39- Shareable

Radio Headspace #39- Shareable This month, I set out to investigate learning and kicked things off by starting a skill share here at Headspace HQ. My plan for this final week of September was to put together a ‘Show and Tell’ episode of what everyone was learning and teaching, but the more research I did, the more I kept coming back to this idea of sharing – whether it’s sharing stuff, sharing skills, sharing ideas or sharing what we know. This is what allows us to learn in the first...

#38 - Dallas Clayton & Inspiring Creativity

We’re talking about lifelong learning throughout this month on Headspace, and so far on the podcast we’ve discussed skill-swapping, we’ve looked at learning something for the first time, and we’ve investigated how to fine tune our memories. This week, it’s time to inspire some creativity. Often when we think of learning something new, or taking up a new hobby, we imagine something creative. Dallas Clayton is an LA-based artist and children’s writer whose work you may have seen us share...

#37 - Headspace Science: Learning & Memory

Last week on Radio Headspace, we introduced our Skill Swap project. Hopefully some of you have had a chance to get involved and to start skill swaps of your own. If you missed it, you can listen back now, and check our Instagram for some creative learning prompts. For those of you who did get started already, tell us about it! We’d like to follow your skill swaps and your learning journeys, and talk to some of you on the podcast at the end of this month. This week, we’re focusing on learning...

#36 - Introducing Headspace On Learning

This month across Headspace, we’re taking on lifelong learning, and we want you to join us. Throughout September on Radio Headspace, we’re going to be encouraging you to pick up something new, share with us what you’ve learned and teach others what you know. The idea of learning as an adult can be daunting, not to mention time-consuming and expensive, so we’re going to try to lead by example. We’ve taken on skill-swapping, and in this episode we look at how it works, who’s learning what, and...

#35 - Andy Puddicombe on Meditation, Boredom & Pain

Every other week on the podcast, we take on your questions about Headspace, meditation, and the mind. This week, Headspace co-founder Andy Puddicombe returns to Radio Headspace to talk about how to deal with the way our mind and body feel while we’re meditating. Sometimes when we sit down to meditate we feel discomfort, and even pain. This week Andy talks about what to do when you experience uncomfortable physical sensations, as well as how to tackle boredom in the mind when meditating. If...
