The Waveform is a newsletter from Red Cup Agency about the next edge in podcasting. In each issue, I’ll stay on top of things for you. When we launch a new show or post an episode that stands out, I’ll drop that into the newsletter.

I’m Lee Schneider, founder and lead producer at Red Cup Agency. Did someone forward this to you, or are you reading it on the web? You can subscribe for free.

Glo Podcast Cruising Past 44 Episodes

The Glo Podcast is a conversation about resilience and self-care. In more than 40 episodes, we’ve spoken with neurologists, yogis, religious scholars, business coaches, and many bestselling authors who have good ideas about how to improve your life. Just this week, we recorded a conversation about sex (lots of swearing; will use the “E for explicit” rating), and a conversation about community with celebrated yoga teacher Elena Brower. The co-founder of Summit, Jeff Rosenthal, joins Elena on that episode to discuss his new book, Make No Small Plans.
