Today on the Mamaste Podcast we welcome Joy and Claire of The Girls Gone WOD Podcast! *Insert fangirl screams here* (Jill has been following them for a while and is pretty much the ultimate Girls Gone WOD fangirl. In fact, they were the original inspiration for starting The Mamaste Podcast.) We dive right in by talking about how Oprah smells—yes, you read that right. These two are seriously just so down to earth and it’s like chatting with your two girlfriends who you’ve known forever.
Joy and Claire started Girls Gone WOD on a whim and it’s grown to a highly rated podcast in the health and nutrition category with a super loyal following. It’s been 5 years since they started out so Ryann wanted to know: “What’s the advice you would give the former version of you just starting out?” Joy remembered advice that one of her former bosses gave her: “Just start.” She continued by saying, “No matter what it is that you’re doing, you cannot mold it off what someone else is doing. Just do it and figure it out as you go.” Claire also talked about how there’s no room for comparison in following your passion. We couldn’t agree more!
What started as simply a creative outlet, The Girls Gone WOD Podcast, has quickly grown into a tribe of connected listeners and fans. Their number one goal is to “relate to people and build a tribe of people who just want feel welcome and know that they’re not alone.”
We also dove into the pressures of looking a certain way as a mother and about having conversations with our kids surrounding food and how it’s challenging because, let’s face it, most of the time our kids just wanna eat junk (who doesn’t!?). Actually, Claire’s son loves butter so much that it came up at his parent teacher conference. Clarie’s having her second baby in 2019 and they’ve also got some live events planned and a program launching too. Stay tuned for all that is to come—Joy and Claire seriously rock!
In case you are not a Girls Gone Wod fan here are my 10 (ish….ok 11 I had already cut it down from 13) essential episodes if you have 10 plus hours to spare. You really can’t go wrong starting any where with their podcast. Lately, it has been quite good and now that they have two episodes a week you get a little bit of their excellent interview skills mixed with the Claire and Joy chit chat, and I mean chit chat in the best possible way.
