Real, helpful, inspiring, and entertaining without being preachy, here are our favourite inspiring podcasts to start the new year off with your best foot forward!

How To Fail With Elizabeth Day

Hosted by journalist Elizabeth Day, this series is about exploring the notion of failure in modern society and what we can take away from moments that didn’t quite work out. Elizabeth Day interviews guests like Lily Allen and Fearne Cotton, and makes you question your perceptions on failure. Rather than viewing our mistakes as setback, Day challenges you to think of them as lessons. 


Hosted by bestselling author of ‘The Happiness Project’ and ‘Better Than Before’, Gretchen Rubin provides personal, practical tips, and positive habits designed to make your life happier.

Second Life

With so many young, successful people spotlighted through social media, it’s easy to feel like you’re lagging behind. Host Hillary Kerr chronicles the career changes that arise at any age and provides an insight into the struggle and challenges posed when forging a career at any stage of life. Expect to find eps on celebrities like Nicole Richie, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Amanda de Cadenet. 

The Goop Podcast

Goop is a pretty divisive force; you either love it or hate it. Regardless, Gwyneth Paltrow and Goop know how to pull in an audience, with The Goop Podcast creating a space to discuss health and wellbeing. Paltrow hosts some high profile episodes like the interview with Oprah, while other eps see Goop’s editors chat about trendy wellness topics. 


This podcast sees Refinery29’s editor-in-chief Christene Barberich chat with inspiring women. Unstyled is short and sweet at around 30mins per episode, however in this time Barberich displays her knack for getting her guests to talk about their personal lives, experiences, and the complexities of being a woman.


If you’re looking for something that will really make you think, Invisibilia is the podcast for you. Meaning ‘invisible things’ in Latin, Invisibilia combines science with storytelling, musing on past lives, empathy, and what life would be like with a remote control brain. 

Ten Percent Happier With Dan Harris

Dan Harris had a panic attack live on air while hosting Good Morning America. Since then, the once skeptical ABC newsman has explored meditation, writing a bestselling book ‘10% Happier’ and started an app ‘10% Happier: Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics’. In this podcast, Harris seeks to answer a single question: Can you be an ambitious person and still strive for enlightenment? 

Boss Files With Poppy Harlow

CNN journalist Poppy Harlow explores the journeys of business and global leaders. Howard interviews an array of high profile guests from Warren Buffet and Melinda Gates to Glossier CEO Emily Weiss and Starbucks founder Howard Schultz, to ask them how they achieved success and find out what it takes to rise to the top.
