As a collection of Oprah's interviews over the years, the podcast's quality really differs by episode. Oprah's Super Soul features some very insightful interviews with public figures like Salma Hayek and Lady Gaga. However, Oprah also gives a platform to some controversial guests. Deepak Chopra has frequently promoted his theories on Oprah's shows as scientific facts, even though they've been disputed by the scientific community. A few of the religious leaders who've been on the show are known to have shared anti-LGBTQ views online or in sermons. Though this isn't a reflection of Oprah or the show's beliefs, it's unfortunate that these interviews could detract some from and otherwise insightful show. If you have an interest in self-help and healing you can find many more episodes that feature positive role models and others can be used to spark important conversations with teens around difference of opinion and fact checking.
