THE GOOP POD­CAST

Love her or loathe her, Gwyneth Pal­trow sure knows how to make a pod­cast that truly hits the spot. Sure, you’re bound to come across very GP-es­que cul­tural ref­er­ences at times, but this pod­cast also cov­ers top­ics as di­verse as ‘Su­per Woman Syn­drome’, ‘Are We All Psy­chic?’ and pos­si­bly the best ti­tle for a pod­cast episode ever: ‘It’s Nor­mal to Oc­ca­sion­ally Hate Your Spouse’. Gwyn, nat­u­rally, also has a bevy of celebs to draw upon for episodes – Olivia Wilde, Chrissy Teigen and Sarah Jes­sica Parker, just for starters. It’s quite a treat to hear this A-lis­ter pick their brains about ev­ery­thing from Sarah Jes­sica’s re­fusal since ’99 to give up her Black­berry, to what it was like for Olivia be­ing brought up by two war jour­nal­ist par­ents and what Chrissy re­ally loves about be­ing with John Le­gend. And hey, you know you’ve found a block­buster if the rst guest is Oprah, for heaven’s sake!

JOANNE, BY LADY GAGA

I know, I’m su­per late to the party on this one, but when this al­bum was re­leased late-2016 I wasn’t ready for it. Now, hav­ing seen the doc­u­men­tary Gaga:

Five Foot Two and wit­ness­ing the uni­ver­sal ad­mi­ra­tion for her per­for­mance in the ev­ery­body’stalk­ing-about-it A Star Is Born,

I un­der­stand the psy­chol­ogy be­hind her de­par­ture from her pop roots. Joanne is a re­cal­i­bra­tion of Lady Gaga as we knew her, and while it’s not per­fect or very co­her­ent in its aes­thetic, there’s some­thing re­lat­able in its con­fu­sion with a tempo to be dis­cov­ered for ev­ery kind of sum­mer.

POD­CAST: MY FA­VORITE MUR­DER

If you were hooked on Se­rial, binge-watched Mak­ing a

Mur­derer and zz over any­thing to do with true crime then you’ve prob­a­bly al­ready sub­scribed to this hit pod­cast. If not, where have you been? Hosted by two kick-ass Amer­i­can fem­i­nists, Ge­or­gia Hard­stark and Karen Kil­gari­, it’s a light-hearted take on some pretty dark stu– and serves as a ve­hi­cle for high­light­ing the im­por­tance of men­tal health aware­ness, sup­port­ing vic­tims of crime and throw­ing po­lite­ness out the win­dow, all in one hi­lar­i­ously en­ter­tain­ing nar­ra­tive.
