Alanis Morissette Has a New Self-Help Podcast, Is Your New Frasier Crane
Perhaps Alanis Morissette isn't a licensed psychiatrist, but for many, Jagged Little Pill is all the therapy they've ever needed. And now, the voice behind one of pop's most heralded albums is ready to reclaim her post as guiding light.
After making an announcement on her Facebook page, Morissette launched a brand new podcast, Conversations With Alanis, that aims to address...well, everything, according to a description in the iTunes store.
"Alanis will dive into science, neurobiology, music, travel, social commentary, maybe a tiny bit of political, and feminism," it reads. "The conversations will touch on topics that move the guest and Alanis herself toward philosophizing in real time, as well as illuminate any teachings, ideas and models already established."
The description mentions that Morissette was inspired to create the series by deep conversations she's been having for years, and that she'll cover more general themes of psychology, spirituality, design and health. So, first things first: are jagged little pills truly healing, or have we just been working off a placebo effect?
The very first episode, a talk with "conscious-uncoupling"-coiner Katherine Woodward Thomas, was released earlier this week, and has already been met with overwhelmingly positive response on iTunes.
"This is an awesome start to what I believe will prove to be a substantially important podcast," one bit of feedback notes. "Alanis brings her own special take on what I call 'conscious evolution,' and she does it extremely well." Another lauds her for an "informal tenor."
