goop beauty editors Jean Godfrey-June and Megan O’Neill love to ask – and answer – questions. In their podcast, The Beauty Closet, they do two. To familiarize yourself with the weekly guests, we came up with a Goop beauty (and life) questionnaire.
This Week We Talk:
Kate Berlant and Jacqueline Novak,
comedians and cohosts of the podcast ATTEMPT
Easy assumption about ATTEMPT, the entertaining wellness-obsessed podcast by comedians and lifelong friends Kate Berlant and Jacqueline Novak, is whether it’s a parody or a goop critique. “We’re real believers,” Berlant says.
“People – fools – were like,‘ Oh, are you kidding about goop, are you kidding about wellness? And we’re like “No, sweet.” And just so everyone is clear, skin care is also beneficial. We like everything. ”

So, with the uncontrollable cracking, Goop beauty editors Jean Godfrey-June and Megan O’Neill can talk about spa treatments, clean beauty and crystal-made homemade healing mats with women’s beauty. ATTEMPT, and podcast In New Yorker called “a laugh from the inside of the house the wellness industry has built” in this week’s episode of The Beauty Closet.
“You expect to hide your interest in serums to be taken seriously as an intellectual,” says Novak, whose critically acclaimed off-Broadway show, Get on your knees (yes, it’s about work shots, and it’s brilliant) he’s going to be on tour this summer. The idea of ATTEMPT came when Novak and Berlant were stripped naked between the hot and cold water sinking in a Korean spa. “There was the emotion of common obsession and just the fact of how intense it is for us,” Novak says. Instead of hiding their common fixation on serums and grain-free baking classes, the two blur their often hysterical depths, mixing in Jung’s abundance (“We force ourselves into academic references to the point of absurdity where we can”. says Berlant).
After pondering questions like “Do you get more joy from the lip and cheek products you can use anywhere, or is it more about having a separate and dedicated lipstick?”, Berlant and Novak were more than willing to fill the gap. our goop beauty questionnaire. And while you will surely reside your way, as before ATTEMPT, the joke isn’t all stacked up on the multi-billion dollar welfare industry. As the two explain to Seth Meyers: “Laughing at the crystals is a humiliation in itself.”
