I'd heard of Goop.com, Gwyneth Paltrow's "Wellness" website where basically to be well, you need to send Gwyneth money for things like Jade Eggs to put in your vagina that supposedly do miraculous things that scientists say the eggs don't really do. Or "Tummy Tea" which apparently is just a laxative.
Yes, we can buy anything we want and that's fine. But this just seems like a rich, privileged celebrity with a home gym, a trainer and a nutritionist making claims about garbage that doesn't work. Hardly seems like a woman supporting other women.
Here's an email I got from Kati who listens to our show:
Love the show and thought of you when I heard this particular episode about Gwenyth Paltrow. The whole series is very interesting, but this one points out what a scam artist she is. Hope you like it!!
Thanks again for brightening my days!
And here's the podcast. VERY interesting! Hope you enjoy it!
