“The biggest changes happen through direct experience,” says Diego Perez, known as Yung Pueblo, poet and author of Inward. Perez joins the guys to share how he found poetry, meditation, and intentional awareness as a way to heal his pain—and how he came to realize that he could no longer ignore himself and the way he felt. He reminds us that our behaviors have ripple effects on others, on our relationships, on the world. And that if we want to make a positive impact, we can start with the internal: how can you be more honest with yourself? “Cultivate this culture of honesty inside of yourself, so that you’re not running away from yourself.”(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.
