The Liberated Body Podcast is for body nerds who just plain delight in learning about this thing we get to live in. In each episode host Brooke Thomas talks with thought leaders within the wide variety of somatic fields. Conversations revolve around why embodiment matters, and the emerging 21st century understanding of the body as a whole rather than a collection of parts (and what that even means). In other words, we talk to lots of really smart people about the universes within us.

    Many thanks for the podcast and the very thoughtful service that you are providing our community. I have valued every interview and especially Steve Haines, whose work I didn’t know of. He has so much to offer my own inquires into interoception and how it can serve the people I work with. I study with bo Forbes and will definitely share this wonderful episode with her. I plan to find way to learn more from Steve and from all of your presenters. The world needs more of this knowledge and you are helping facilitate that. It can be hard to find these amazing people that have so much to offer. THANK YOU for doing all you do- I know it is in no way easy. Many thanks!!

    Hey Brooke,

    First off I´m really greatful for the amount of information you´ve gathered through this podcast and having the chance of being one of your listeners is wonderful. Im a recently certified Rolfer and one out of five Rolfers here in Chile, a very tiny community! I´ve been on the hold for more upcoming interviews and thought it was time to ask when you plan of coming out with a season 3? I
    I remember telling Thomas Walker about liberatedbody in my phase II, he didn´t know about it and was very glad to here you where doing such great stuff.
