09/22/2015Probably thousands of different vibrators have come and gone over the decades but there is one that has outlasted them all.
"The Heart," hosted and co-founded by Kaitlin Prest and co-founded by Mitra Kaboli, describes itself as an "audio art project and podcast about intimacy and humanity." The format isn't static, but the long-running program (originally titled "Audio Smut" when it began in 2008) maintains a distinct feel that's more like reading someone's diary, or watching a sparse yet emotional film, as compared to reading a newspaper. Whether an episode is more like a nonfiction narrative ("Idiot + Dummy"), closer to a traditional interview ("Beauty Is Pain"), or a mix of reporting and personal experience ("The Magic Wand"), each one will bring you closer to feeling like you're less alone in this mad, mad world. A bonus: "The Heart" does a great job representing love beyond straight relationships.

Half Size Me We have a complicated relationship with shows like "The Biggest Loser". And despite our misgivings about the emphasis on the scale and the push-it-till-you-puke attitude, it's hard to deny that the dramatic transformations can be inspiring. Half Size Me offers similar inspiration from a much more relatable place. Host Heather Robertson lost 170 pounds, but her methods were far from reality TV tactics. Her weight dropped slowly over five years -- without superstar trainers. She was just one woman making better choices day in, day out. In her podcast, she interviews other people with similar transformations and talks about their practical steps for pursuing big-number weight loss.

Realize Yourself Podcast If the cucumber-focaled face here looks familiar, it might be because Kimberly Snyder has been photographed alongside Hollywood clients like Drew Barrymore and Fergie. But celeb-spotting aside, Snyder's expertise isn't in walking the red carpet, it's in leading a positive, plant-fueled life. And despite the fact that her Glowing Green Smoothie is the drink that launched a thousand Vitamix orders, topics on her podcast go far beyond blended beverages. Subjects like beauty sleep, hydration and holiday eating pitfalls are all tackled by Snyder in a calm, collected voice. A good place to start: Delicious Winter

The One You Feed Podcast Of all the podcast titles on our list, this one has the biggest "Huh?" factor. But the moniker isn't as random as it appears. It comes from a Buddhist parable: A grandfather tells his grandkid, "There are two wolves fighting inside us. One represents negative emotions: greed, guilt, disgust, etc. The other is positive emotions: love, acceptance, kindness." The kid asks, "Which one lives?" And the grandfather answers, "The one you feed." This podcast is about finding ways to "feed your good wolf." Thoughtful topics like willpower, handling setbacks, and switching off envy are discussed by everyone from start-up CEOs to indie spiritualists, proving we're all looking for ways to let light triumph over darkness.

Bulletproof Radio Bulletproof Radio could be subtitled: It's not about the coffee. Or more accurately, it's not just about the coffee. Host Dave Asprey is best known for popularizing the union of butter and java, simultaneously kicking off a new era of coffee consumption and confusing the heck out of baristas. But as his podcast proves, he's equally interested in examining all aspects of nutrition and fitness. Asprey dropped 100 pounds while refining his diet. And his endless curiosity in hacking his health led to adopting a Paleo-ish approach. As Asprey refines his formula for success, he consults with a parade of A-list authors and experts, and his (weight) loss is our gain. A good place to start: JJ Virgin: The Sugar Impact Diet

Listen to Episode 1 first so that you can jump right in to our natural movement conversation!   Preorder Katy's latest book "Move Your DNA"
Katy Says Is your exercise routine an hour on the elliptical or doing a circuit of weight machines? Katy Bowman will call all that into question. Her philosophy of "restorative exercise" looks at the body holistically. Bowman's approach is to mimic what the human body did before modern living made us divide our time between sitting hours at a desk and pounding out a hour of repetitive exercises in one plane of motion. If you're recovering from an injury, Bowman's smart advice makes a good addition to your recovery program. But everyone can benefit from the info here and the delicious stretch incorporated in each episode. A good place to start: Natural Movement
01/08/2014In the US, 80% of girls have been on a diet by the time they're 10 years old. In this honest, raw talk, neuroscientist Sandra Aamodt uses her personal story to frame an important lesson about how our brains manage our bodies, as she explores the science behind why dieting not only doesn't work, but is likely to do more harm than good. She suggests ideas for how to live a less diet-obsessed life, intuitively.
TEDTalks Health Once upon a time back in 1984, TED launched a conference that promoted short, powerful talks of 18 minutes or less. Thirty years and several viral videos later, TED continues to host groundbreaking conversations, and TEDTalks Health is exactly what you'd expect from the brand. Subjects covered by this video podcast are pretty broad (mental illness, vaccines, pooping), but their fitness and nutrition topics are, as they say, "ideas worth spreading."
