This week goop announces its magazine subscription and it's... actually a good deal? We talk functional medicine (yes, again), dining room tables, acupressure scalp massages, a very Brooklyn morning routine, and (hopefully for the last time) dry brushing.
Goop does a hard pivot to video, and there's some winners and some losers. We talk lovelorn acupuncturists, osteopaths disguised as neurologists, gynocologists disguised as psychologists, elderly raver pants, korean shredded chicken, Megan Abbott novels, salt scalp scrubs, Japanese salad bowls, Chicago coffeeshops, and fingernail health.
Bryan is sick of all the diets out there so he's invented his own. It's called the 1*1*1 and it will make him a millionaire. Listen to learn how you can make it part of your healthy lifestyle! After the sales pitch we talk weird child discipline techniques, Aggie's fear of self-tanning, citrus perfume, jasmine salt spray, a "clean" French Toast recipe from a disgraced CEO, Netflix propaganda, and SSRIs. Plus, a special announcement.
Getting pregnant is hard but goop has all the answers. That's right, it's time for goop's fertility issue and Aggie and Bryan would rather talk about anything else. So we discuss alternative fertility methods and egg freezing but also Staub dutch ovens, Italian cinema, and vegan pimento cheese. Plus, an update on Bryan and Aggie's cannabis and vodka adventures. You know things are really bad when goop posts a charity link so please donate if you can. https://goop.com/work/civics/how-you-can-help-immigrant-children/
After a quick recap of In Goop Health (the FOMO didn't hit as hard as we thought) we give updates on diet, drinking, and summer reading. Then we dive into the newsletters, discussing Summer Solstice astrology, Barry (or Phil's) appearance on the Goop podcast, scary Hamptons ladies, meal prep sauce fantasies, outdated travel guides, and goop's inevitable expansion into fancy white people cannabis.
For the second year in a row, Aggie and Bryan were not invited to In Goop Health, but it's ok because we scored some Goop Glow and we're drinking it live on the pod. We then launch into the news - discussing nipple balm, cotton bowl covers, post natal depletion, zuo yuezi, low alcohol cocktails, and a face massager that might be a sex toy.
This week's intense newsletter puts a spotlight on a variety of eating disorders, covering everything from binge eating to orthorexia. But Aggie and Bryan decide to focus on the sunny side of goop, discussing Bravolebrity reiki masters, a tragic raw summer tart, vegan Big Macs, fancy LA salons, a Dr. Taz update, $300 indoor trees, and Megan's awesome wedding pics. This pod has been brought to you by Vitamin B12 and DayQuil Liquicaps.
After spending the first several minutes of our podcast defending mayonnaise, we dip into the newsletters, exploring consiousness and manifesting our power. We also touch on secret office psychics, local vegan restaurants, $40 scrunchies, a huge goop sale, and a summer reading list. Warning: This podcast is speculative but promising.
After another illuminating diet and health powwow, Aggie and Bryan discuss the goop newsletters, touching on Forest Bathing, Power Types, Spring Feasts, Narcissistic Parenting, and Fish CSAs! Plus, we get our first one star review. We're fine with it. We're totally fine.
After last week's jarring, disturbing sex issue, goop is back doing what it does best: crazy diets, untested medicine, and useless travel guides. Aggie and Bryan open with a glimpse into their own health journeys and then talk about the latest newsletters, touching on autoimmune diets, California roadtrips, erotic chicken parm, sketchy sleep aid potions, working from home, bubbly negronis, and Gwyneth's newest face oil. It's a jam packed Goop Yourself, enjoy!
