New York, NY - January 10, 2023 – SiriusXM today announced Sauna Sessions with Prince EA, a new wellness-focused podcast hosted by the filmmaker, speaker and creator. Launching January 24, Sauna Sessions will feature Prince EA joined by special guests in an infrared sauna to have longform conversations focused on the mind, body and spirit.
The sauna has long been a place of contemplation, a place to clear one’s mind and body. On each episode of Sauna Sessions, Prince EA will be joined by a special guest for a conversation that aims to clear the day’s toxicity and get down to the searing truths about mind, body, and spirit and how to apply practical wisdom in our daily lives.
The series will launch with a wide-ranging slate of experts in their fields, including speaker, author and entrepreneur 19Keys; author and health food expert Doug Evans; Buddhist practitioner Jack Kornfield; biochemist Jessie Inchauspé; New York Times best-selling author, podcaster, and two-sport All-American athlete Lewis Howes; hypnotist and life coach Marczell Klein; magician, actor and musician Penn Jillette; bodybuilder Robby Robinson; bestselling author and podcaster Shawn Stevenson; and more.
“I’ve had some of the most interesting conversations in my life during the ‘heat’ of the sauna. There’s something about the sweating that removes the walls normally held up in typical discussion,” said Prince EA. “I’m super excited to launch this podcast and dive deeper with guests than they have ever gone before. As we detox our bodies we will also detoxify the BS in the world and get to the truth about how our audience can REALLY be healthy, happy and connected.”
“The beginning of a new year is a time when many of us set new goals for our health and wellness journey,” said Colin Anderson, Vice President of Content at Stitcher. “With the panel of inspiring thought-leaders and experts that Prince EA has assembled for Sauna Sessions, we know that this podcast will be a valuable resource, and we are excited to help him bring it to life.”
Sauna Sessions is created by Prince EA. The show is executive produced by Stitcher’s Colin Anderson and Hok Productions’ Dustin Knouse. Engineering is by Record Edit Podcast.
SXM Media, the advertising sales group of Sirius XM Holdings Inc., will have exclusive global ad sales rights for the series.
