“This idea of needing people or feeling needy…that is the natural state of the human primate,” says Stan Tatkin, renowned therapist and author of We Do. Through his work with couples, Tatkin has developed a keen understanding of what makes relationships work—and what makes them tank. He shares his principles for developing and maintaining a long-term relationship, and he explains how our early attachment styles affect how we express and respond to intimacy as adults. Find out whether you’re an island, wave, or anchor—and how to allow for a healthy amount of dependency in a partnership. (For more, see the goopfellas podcast hub.)

About The Show

What drives people to change, to heal, to reinvent themselves? How do we reclaim our health, bounce back from heartbreak, flip the script? On goopfellas, two friends who have become familiar with unlikely personal transformations have raw conversations with people who have experienced profound shifts in perspective and well-being. Together, functional medicine practitioner Will Cole, DC, and chef Seamus Mullen get at the catalysts that bring people out of their dark night and into their purpose. Each of their goopfellas guests—from athletes to actors to authors—is different. As are the hosts: Mullen himself almost died from rheumatoid arthritis, and Cole’s day job is helping people uncover and overturn the roots of dis-ease. But you’ll likely see pieces of yourself in all their conversations, reflected in every one of their challenges. And we hope, from the lessons they learned along the way, you’ll find something you need to bring about a change, big or small, in your own life.
