Our Editor's Take

Oprah Winfrey produces many podcasts. But one that is particularly close to her heart is Oprah's Super Soul. It's the podcast version of Super Soul Sunday, her popular interview program on The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). The idea of the original television show was to feature spiritual and uplifting interviews each Sunday morning. Since 2017, listeners have been able to hear this wisdom any day of the week with Oprah's Super Soul podcast. They're billed as “best-of” episodes selected by Oprah herself. The program also features memorable interviews from The Oprah Winfrey Show.

While the TV show went off the air in 2011, Oprah is still a powerful force in the broadcasting world. She's Oprah! She always attracts big-name guests. Being interviewed on Oprah's TV show couch was always a huge honor. Now it's sitting outside with Oprah talking at her Montecito estate or Maui mansion. Oprah's Super Soul may feature celebrities like Tom Brady, Beyoncé, and Lady Gaga. And thinkers like Maya Angelou, Brené Brown, and Joel Osteen get their say. But the show is more uplifting than a standard Hollywood interview. Each of Oprah's guests talks about how to “live your best life.”

Oprah was the first Black female billionaire. She's got her own charity, Oprah's Angel Network. Her good works won her the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She's the undisputed “Queen of All Media.” She's likely a strong contender for the most influential person in the world. This podcast is one way she uses her broad influence to help her audience's personal growth.

Oprah has said these Super Soul shows present “the most universal and powerful life lessons.” They also have many ”aha moments.” The point of all the episodes is to fulfill Oprah's greatest wish for the show. What is that wish? It's that “these conversations will help illuminate your path to all you've been meaning to be and all you're meant to be.”

Super Soul Special: Oprah Winfrey: The Climb
Original Air Date: May 26, 2021Oprah says, “I have always thought a mountain is a magnificent metaphor for life. From a distance, the ascent looks clear and smooth, but once you actually set out for the summit, you discover unexpected valleys and precarious ridges along the way. If your internal compass isn’t set to keep climbing, every stumble will give you an excuse to turn back. Over the years, there have been many times when I’ve found myself climbing a steep, rocky road and there have been setbacks which threatened to overwhelm me or stop me in my tracks. But I’ve learned to keep going and to tell myself, ‘This too shall pass, and I will be better for it.’ In this Super Soul podcast, Oprah sits down with such legendary spiritual teachers and thought leaders as: Eckhart Tolle, Stephen Colbert, President Joe Biden (VP at the time), Father Richard Rohr, Kristen and Rob Bell, Alanis Morissette, Cheryl Strayed, Paul Williams, Tracey Jackson, Glennon Doyle, Tracy McMillan, Cindy Crawford, Jon Bon Jovi and Joel Osteen. They discuss how they made their way up their own mountains, and what kept them going, no matter how steep the climb. A similar path is waiting for you. Interviews with these talented writers, speakers and thought leaders are excerpted from her Emmy Award-winning show Super Soul Sunday. You can also find this compilation and other insightful conversations, in Oprah’s best-selling book The Path Made Clear. Want more podcasts from OWN?
