Just started listening
I’m jumping around hoping their song changed but it’s painful to listen to, I always fast forward through it. the other podcasts I listen to have a lovely intro. That’s soothing or gets you pumped, this tune is like nails on a chalkboard and you can’t understand what the lyrics are. also the roses and thorns piece could go they barely do thorns. I’d love to hear more about their backgrounds - jobs where they grew up and if their only job is podcasting now? More about their personal lives similar to almost 30. Sometimes the audio for the guest is low and the girls audio is so loud it’s a hard balance when listening. Would love links in the app of the podcast to the guests. Also they sometimes promote toxic products so take heed when following their advice- a lot of things they recommend have harsh, toxic chemicals in them

“Wellness” is code for massive privilege
Had to unsubscribe after the latest episode. Can’t relate to humans who push a $500 sweat blanket under the guise of “wellness” for an hour. Lots of diet culture buzz words here beware…”detox,” “toxins,” “anti inflammatory,”…🙄 do better
Funny, heartfelt and informative
It’s my weekly listening ritual. Always keeping a list of products they recommend and useful information. Kinda my only link to the world beyond going to work. Thank you forever baby ladies!
so many Sarahs
Love it.
Every week I learn and take comfort from that’s so retrograde. It’s a true rose in the podcast world. The show explores a variety of topics and has opened my mind to health, mindfulness, and wellness. Big thanks to the that’s so retrograde team and all of their guest.

Keep your crazy Stephanie
The good thing about 2020 was I got really clear on what I value and what can leave my life. Leaving: podcasts with self-absorbed not-so-much anti-vaxx experts who completely ignore the reality of the world. There are millions of people in the developing world that would stand in line for a week for a Covid vaccine. The privilege and ignorance of anti-vaccine Americans is obscene and I don’t want it in my ears anymore.

Loved so much but cannot with anti-vax
Long time lover of TSR but Steph’s rhetoric around the vaccine on the pod and on social media is so harmful so I’m taking my support elsewhere. Getting the vaccine if you’re eligible is not about you, it’s about the people in this world who can’t get vaccinated and rely on us to protect them. That being said- so glad to have Elizabeth as the voice of reason, and honestly will not be surprised when she goes out on her own and creates a new pod without Stephanie. Will be all ears when that happens.

TSR brings me joy!
I love the chemistry between Stephanie & Elizabeth. I always find myself laughing out loud and also nodding my head in agreement during their intros because I can relate to a lot of what they share. Every episode I know I’m going to learn something new. It’s the perfect podcast for all generations, honestly. Relatable and entertaining. Happy they’re back in person and reunited!
Amazing Podcast!
I recently discovered this podcast and am in LOVE! The hosts, Stephanie and Elizabeth, always have conversations about interesting topics that I love as a young adult. They are always such a joy to listen to, I look forward to listening to this podcast on my daily walks! Xoxo
Love this podcast, but can we PLEASE stop using the word “retarded”.....
Too many ads
I really enjoy the show but I have to tap out — I cannot take all the commercials.
My Favorite Podcast
I’ve been listening to TSR for years and it keeps getting better! Elizabeth and Stephanie feel like my virtual best friends. I always finish the podcast feeling inspired and curious to learn more...and laughing/smiling.
Low vibration drivel. Tired of the incessant, boring chatter. Do better!
a good girlll
Not a terrible show but..
Not a terrible show, but I found myself getting annoyed because everyone interrupts one another. Some of the sound was mediocre too.
Relatable and informative
We joke that here in the Midwest we get everything 10 years behind the West Coast trends. Happy to have you bridging that gap in the energetic/intuitive/clean beauty/wellness game. I like to listen to you guys banter when I miss hanging out with my friends in this distanced era, feels like my kitchen is full of girls night chatter. Thanks for being true to yourselves and letting me grow with you! PS I recently got my Aavrani in the mail and I LOVE it. It’s refreshing to know you’ve vetted the products you feature.

I discovered that’s so retrograde after listening to them on the skinny confidential podcast way back when and omg they are a god send. Their content is just my cup of tea & I’m absolutely in love with the guests they bring on to the show like Remington & Ambi. I love listening to these 2 gals who also reminds me a lot about me (taurus) and my sister (scorpio) lol. Keep the podcasts coming!!

These gals have the best guests
Elizabeth and Stephanie have wonderful choices in their guests. They have great questions and I enjoy their banter. They have introduced me to quite a number of holistic healers I would never know. I’m always excited to hear what they have to say about wellness and being healthy.
Trying again
Trying this pod again after leaving for a while. I love a lot of the conversations but it’s annoying to push products or people’s services that are out of reach for a lot of listeners. They also talk a lot about living in LA which makes it obvious that they’re not actually from LA.
Long time listener, first time unsubscriber.
After listening to this podcast for years, I stopped 5 minutes into the latest episode and unsubscribed. Since going to “Dear Media”, it’s become a constant product push filled with ads. I don’t know why I bother writing a review, because the hosts defensively downplay any critic or feedback that doesn’t glow in their favor. I am over listening to their privileged take on consumer-based wellness.

Come for the content, stay for the laughs
I would have never guessed that a podcast would shift my perspective so much..yet here we are. TSR has become by favorite podcast for learning about new practices, brands (with actually thoughtful sponsors/promo codes), rituals, and for illuminating interviews with the most diverse guests. Elizabeth and Stephanie know how to deliver eye opening (/ear opening?) content and make it approachable and humorous- this is what makes TSR such a joy to listen to every week. Thank you two for being you!

Love TSR!!
I’ve been listening to That’s So Retrograde for about 8 months or so and I can’t get enough. Great topics and guests. I’m always so intrigued by everything they discuss and it’s such a great mix of important issues, health and wellness, and spiritual life. I haven’t found anything else like it. ❤️
Lady babies make ‘wellness’ fun
I’ve loved TSR for years now. Stephanie & Elizabeth are always so informative, relatable, & fun to listen to. I’ve learned so much about topics that are out of the mainstream, at least here in South Carolina. My life has been infinitely elevated by listening to these lady babies <3

Favorite Podcast!
This podcast is my go to for all things health and wellness. I look forward to the weekly recommendations of products as well as the guests. I’ve learned so much and it is truly a weekly treat! Thank you for all you do.
It’s creepy but I feel like they’re my friends
These ladies are hilarious and most definitely real with their audience. I’ve enjoyed listening to their most recent podcast featuring CardsyB. She is a beautiful light and always on point with her readings. Love and light ladies! Each of you are amazing humans. ✨❤️
Get by with a little help from my friends!
I’ve been listening religiously for about two years and honestly I feel like Elizabeth and Steph are my friends or rather the sisters I never had! They say the things you’re thinking but haven’t had the courage to say out loud and they have a hugeeeee network of healers and helpers that have helped to transform my life! I wasn’t a podcast girl until I started listening to them and I looked forward to a new episode every week! Also their curated ads are much appreciated I trust their selection and have been introduced to some of my fave things because of them!

Best part of my week!
Stephanie and Elizabeth have great on-air chemistry, and I love hearing from the guests they have on - especially recommend the episodes with Alisa Vitti! The main content is awesome, but I also appreciate each week’s Roses and Thorns - I’ve discovered a ton of new products and resources from those segments. Thank you!
My favorite
I look forward to this podcast every week. These ladies are into everything I’m into and ask all the right questions. Can’t get enough of roses and thorns too 👏🏼
Stephanie is so funny
Elizabeth and Stephanie are my favorite! Such a value add podcast and might I add Stephanie is super funny.
Too many ads!
Long time listener, first time reviewer. I used to love this podcast, but the ads have gotten to be overkill. In a 30 minute episode, I forwarded through nearly 15 minutes of ads. As much as I love listening to these ladies, I tend to reach for other podcasts that provide a better listening experience and aren’t constantly marketing to me.
Love them but....
I have been a fan of the show since the very beginning. I met both Stephanie and Elizabeth at the Four Moons Spa in California. Love them both to pieces but one main issue I have with this show is the political one sidedness lately. I used to be a liberal socialist but after a conversation with a Fidel Castro survivor and ALOT of research I am now a proud Latina conservative/ libertarian with some liberal views. Please stop listening to the echo chamber and do real research before isolating listeners, especially minority ones, due to their free thinking in regards to their political affliction. Thinking YOUR side is correct without looking at all the information on both sides is ignorant. Thought you ladies would be better than that. Let’s get together, not divide.

Elizabeth and Stephanie have THE BEST chemistry together. Love their sense of humor and their approach to wellness.
These girls GET ME!
I feel seen heard and cared for by the advice the product recs the expert guests. Magical hilarious friends you must listen to at least once a week! A gazillion stars. Love this show!
Such a fun listen - every time
Something about TSR makes it possible for me to listen to an entire podcast without zoning out! The episodes are always informative, but also so much fun! I have actually made appointments with 2 of their guests because of their show - thank you both so much!
Less ads plz
I’ve been listening for years. I love the more woo-woo episodes around astrology, chakras, etc. With this latest episode I can’t really get into it because it feels like I’m watching Cable television. There’s an ad every 5 minutes. I know your podcast is popular, and I can imagine you’re having a lot of businesses you love that are approaching you for ad space. But I quit cable years ago and pay for the ad-less life. It’s distracting and now I’ve spent the last few minutes typing this review while your podcast is going on in the background... not really learning anything because I’m so distracted. (And, honestly, it seems y’all are, too)

Can’t get enough
Was never really into wellness and these girls make me so curious on how to better myself with no judgies. Love every ep, truly.
I love this podcast with all of my heart. Thank you ladies for all that you do for us. True pioneers.
Becky Ginderman
A big fan of these two. Always topical and incredibly informative, educational and entertaining. I always look forward to news eps. Keep em comin!
I’m honestly not one to “Pod” very often, I work from home and normally just sit in silence staring at a screen all day. But I discovered this podcast and haven’t been able to stop listening. It’s informative, without feeling preachy and the hosts are hysterical. Highly recommend if looking for something honest, and entertaining!
The best
This is such a great podcast! Love how it makes the wellness world feel accessible and fun. The hosts are so funny and knowledgeable, my life gurus!
Hi gals....
Been listening to you gals since the very beginning!!! Love all your guests and the pearls of wisdom they give. Plus, I love the relationship you two have with each other!!! I really like the new emails you send out! Great idea! All the best, Alda-Maria Hughes
I don’t get it
I used to enjoy this podcast but now it feels so cringe to have to sit through one of them laugh at their own, crass unfunny jokes. One of them always asks somewhat interesting questions and the other seems to interrupt and always spend more time responding to the question herself rather than listening to the interviewer. Content coming out just feels like it’s lost its essence and depth.
Please change theme song!
I love you girls but please please change your intro song or shorten it to just sing That’s So Retrograde.
Cup of Tea
Stephanie and Elizabeth are my cup of tea. They keep it fresh and real week after week, bringing us all the info and musings on every “wellness-y” topic. The guests are amazing (the feng shui eps). The roses and thorns segment should exist 4eva. ✌️
Your last show about social media was AMAZING. I have a 16 yr old & 14 yr old- I have raised taught them respect, manners & loving the planet n all humans is NOT based on Instagram (I have none to make that statement but they do). We talk about what is posted. Most parents do not. Cancel yours please & be a voice and inspiration of change for all other youth! We need your voice! PLEASE ☮️ You guys have the love n power to make change and inspire.

I love this podcast! Stephanie and Elizabeth are great together, and I love the topics. I feel like the episodes are very informative and I learn something new every podcast
I love the podcast & the sound bath meditation you offered was amazing. Thank you for sharing.
The best
I listen to a lot of pods and this is the only one where I can say that I have listened to and enjoyed every single episode. It’s funny, informative, and accessible. Stephanie and Elizabeth are great hosts and great interviewers, and I just want to be their best friend! I genuinely look forward to listening to the show every week.
Love them!
You guys are the first podcast I ever listened to and ever since then I look forward to you guys weekly with my coffee in hand on my way to work! You guys made me love listening to podcast! Keep at it gals!!
I don’t get the hype. I wasn’t entertained enough to listen to more than a few episodes.
