Hosts: Lauren Gold & Todd Jason

Are you ready to dissolve the barriers that hold you back from your true capabilities?

Lydia Yuknavitch went from being homeless and sleeping under an overpass to a best selling author with a cult following and a TEDTalk with over 4M views.

The SMU football team experienced a three decade long losing streak until, within one year, the new special teams coach Frank Gansz led them to winning their first bowl game in 25 years.

CEO Loren Hamel brought Lakeland Hospital, which ranked in the bottom 25th percentile for patient satisfaction, to a record-breaking 95th percentile for patient satisfaction within 90 days, dramatically improving health outcomes.

How did each of them achieve these exceptional results?

When we look at powerful stories of transformation and uncommon levels of achievement, it’s often the case that these individuals weren’t more talented or better equipped than anyone else. They had simply discovered how to activate the hidden potential within themselves and others.

Welcome to Untapped, where you’ll learn from leading luminaries, scientists, business leaders and spiritual teachers on cutting-edge ways to unlock your own true capacity for success, fulfillment, connection, love, self-compassion, physical energy and vitality, and so much more.

If you have a nagging feeling that you have so much more to offer in this world than you’ve been tapping into, if you feel like your performance has been good but not great, if you’d like to elevate yourself or others to the next level, this podcast is for you.

Through hearing the incredible stories of others who have ‘cracked the code’ on what we’re truly capable of, this podcast will equip you with powerful tools and a concrete roadmap for overcoming challenges, pushing past plateaus, and unlocking your own untapped potential.
