Global Wellness Summit podcast unveils new six-episode season hosted by Kim Marshall

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has launched a new season of its podcast. Each of the six episodes takes a deep dive into a hot new wellness trend with special guest commentary.

Originally launched at the launched at the 2019 summit, the GWS claims the podcast is dedicated to exploring the latest industry research and the real-world impact of evidence-based wellness trends.

Most episodes go deeper on trends featured in the GWS’ Future of Wellness 2021 report, and each podcast interviews multiple experts on a wellness hot topic.

The new season is hosted by Kim Marshall, wellness industry veteran and co-founder of S’Well Public Relations. Her guests range from James Nestor, author of the recent New York Times best seller Breath, the New Science of a Lost Art to the founders of Esalen Massage on how the iconic retreat changed the concept of wellness.

Episodes will be posted each Wednesday for the next six weeks in the following order:

Financial wellness

Cecelia Girr and Skyler Hubler of Backslash, the cultural intelligence unit of global advertising powerhouse TBWA Worldwide, discuss how the taboo topic of money and finance is being reimagined by a financial wellness movement. The GWS also talks to the founder of the first money fitness app, Zavfit, which marries health-tech and fintech.

The 2021 travel resetElaine Glusac, New York Times Frugal Travel columnist, discusses the trends that will define travel this year: from destinations fighting overtourism to the rise of regenerative travel, where you leave a place better than you found it. This episode also features Jennifer Kessler, luxury travel expert at Forbes Travel Guide, on new ways that sustainability, slow travel and nature prescriptions are being woven into luxury experiences.

The future of immune health

Dr Ken Pelletier, professor of medicine at UCSF, tackles why we should stop all the “immune-boosting” and instead focus on balancing the immune system – sharing tips on how you can make lifestyle changes that impact your microbiome and your gene’s telomeres. And with research showing that positive stress experiences impact immunity and health. Marshall also speaks with the owners of two major hot springs destinations to explore how hot-cold bathing is a therapy on the rise.

Living well from withinFind out how a diagnosis of brain cancer empowered integrative medicine and leadership expert Dr Daniel Friedland to reach deep and create a model of resilience for the planet (all brought to life on a YouTube channel chronicling his cancer journey). The episode also explores how his open-hearted optimism and mantra of “live a loving life” was the inspiration behind the Global Wellness Institute’s latest Initiative on Conscious Leadership and Conscious Capitalism.

Just breathe

James Nestor explains the extraordinary ways that the lost art of breathing impacts human health and is now leading to a breathwork revolution. He shares eye-opening findings from his four years of global research on how simple changes in how we inhale and exhale can change our brains and bodies.

Human potential 2.0Find out what the famed Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, home of the “human potential movement” for nearly 60 years is up to post-pandemic. This episode also sees Marshall talk to two of the original massage therapists, still going strong after treating the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Joan Baez, Hunter S. Thompson, Aldous Huxley, Ravi Shankar and Bonnie Raitt in the sixties.

The GWS Podcast (today at 42 episodes) is free to listen to on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and everywhere podcasts are available.
