You might say that we have a podcast obsession, it’s true. Walking the dog, riding the bus, cooking dinner–many idle moments have been given to growing our wellness journey through the act of podcasting. Together, with each host, we travel down a rabbit hole, expanding our perspective of wellness and the modalities for accessing a full thriving life. If you’re new to the game, or simply looking for a new show to get hooked on, here are our picks for the best wellness podcasts to explore this season!

Yogaland is a dose of weekly inspiration that focuses on creating a happy, healthy, meaningful life.
That’s So Retrograde
By Elizabeth Kott & Stephanie Simbari
Elizabeth Kott and Stephanie Simbari love green juice, a good palm reading, and a guided meditation via YouTube. Also whiskey, the occasional ‘jazz’ cigarette, and the (not-so-occasional) cute boy.
Join them on their weekly podcast, That’s So Retrograde, as they seek out their own paths, however twisty they might be. Through interviewing gurus of all types, Elizabeth & Steph, get to the bottom of how to find their best-selves. Or their most okay-selves. Or just themselves. Whatever.
