👉🏽 Becky Taylor (she/her)

Why this theme?

👉🏽 We’ve all got a friend who’s into crystals, has had a tarot reading, or can’t stop talking about how yoga has changed their life. Heck, that might even be you! (No shade, I’m totally down for all things woo woo myself).

So what does “woo woo” mean? A whole host of things, but broadly it refers to beliefs and practices that are often considered unconventional, spiritual, or alternative. Below are some of my favorite discoveries over the last few years as I’ve dipped my toe into all things woo woo to learn more about the ideas, practices, and beliefs that fall under this umbrella.

Podcast Picks

The Magic Spark

Interested in astrology? Want to lean into tarot? Tandy Gutierrez blends both of these in The Magic Spark and creates a space championing her listeners’ journey to soul authenticity and what might spark their unique magic in the world.

Highest Self Podcast podcast cover art

Almost 500 episodes in, Sahara Rose’s podcast is popular for a reason. She talks to listeners like she’s their best pal, and it’s hard not to be enthused by her energy. This podcast is all about finding your dharma, honoring your sensuality, and raising your energetic vibration… who wouldn’t want those things?!

Holistic Spaces podcast cover art

Hosts Anjie and Laura are co-founders of the Mindful Design Feng Shui School, and in this podcast, they share tips and conversations about feng shui. As listeners, we are gently encouraged to cultivate our own holistic spaces that are both beautiful and functional. EarBuds curator Becky has learned so much about feng shui from this podcast and how it can benefit her physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

White Shores podcast cover art

Host Theresa Cheung is known for her work in dream interpretation. There are episodes about dreams on White Shores, but the show explores more than just dreams. You’ll hear about topics including UFOologists, nightmare whisperers, mediums, neuroscientists, and more.

Sounds A Bit ‘Woo Woo’ To Me podcast cover art

Are you intrigued by the array of alternative therapies, spiritual practices, and holistic wellbeing approaches out there, but baffled by quite what they are and if they actually work? If that sounds like you, this podcast may help demystify all things 'a bit woo woo' and get some clarity on the what, how, and why of spiritual, holistic, and alternative therapies.

Each episode is a beginner guide to a woo woo topic — from things you might have heard of like astrology, angels, or crystals, to those you might not, like akashic records, human design, and tapping therapy.
