Kathryn Budig & Kate Fagan on Stepping Away From Success, Real Talk About Money & The Secrets Behind Their Love Story

Kathryn Budig & Kate Fagan on Stepping Away From Success, Real Talk About Money & The Secrets Behind Their Love Story

Kathryn Budig (@kathrynbudig) & Kate Fagan (@katefagan3) are a superstar couple. Kathryn made her names as a internationally renowned yogi and still teaches on Glo.com. She’s also written two books, including Aim True, which contains my favorite healthy spaghettios recipe in the world. Now, she’s moved into designing performance wear with her collection with Kira Grace (the slashed leggings are the best). Kate Fagan spent years as an ESPN host, and wrote the NYTimes best-selling book What Made Maddy Run. Kate & Kathryn host the Free Cookies podcast together.

We sat down in Kate & Kathryn’s beautifully decorated Charleston home to get intimate about so many things (I LOVE how open these two are). We get into the nitty gritty of success—both Kate and Kathryn found it, and then reevaluated what it meant in their lives, coming to conclusions I found fascinating and really really inspiring. We also share some real talk about sex (including defining sex in a new way), and they share their love story, and how they met. We talk about money, and what Kate learned about money from her dad (I was shook, truly). Finally, Kate shares the 5 wellness practices that changed Kathryn’s life the most. It’s a really fun, loose conversation that veers from digital minimalism to orgasms and back again, and I love it—and I hope you guys do too.

I’m giving away a copy of Kate’s book and Kathryn’s book over my Instagram—enter to win on @lizmoody.

PS: Wanna come hang out with me in Austin this weekend at The Good Fest or in NYC for my book launch? RSVP here—I’d love to meet you in real life!


This episode is brought to you by CW Hemp.  I’m extremely picky about the supplements that I choose to use and CW Hemp’s full-spectrum hemp extract is one of just a handful that I take daily.  By interacting with our cannabinoid receptors (which are all over our body—it’s crazy, and definitely worth a Google!), I find it super helpful in relieving stress and helping me sleep better and longer at night.  I typically go for the middle strength mint chocolate, but the unflavored is also great for recipes, like this Lavender Hot Chocolate (which would also be great iced in the summer time!).  If you’d lke to try CW Hemp for yourself, you can get 10% off your order using the code “healthiertogether.”  Visit cwhemp.com/healthiertogether for more details, and if you have any questions (I LOVE talking about this stuff), don’t hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram!

This podcast is also brought to you by Siete Foods, one of my favorite brands in the country today.  They make better-for-you Mexican American food, including drool-worthy grain free chips, grain free tortillas, cashew queso, and hot sauces. I literally cook with their products daily—the cassava grain free tortillas are my absolute favorites; they have a great chew and don’t break apart when you roll or fold them.  I also LOVE the Habanero Hot Sauce, which isn’t too spicy but packs in a robust flavor that elevates whatever dish you use it on. You can find Siete products in stores around the country, or you can order them online at sietefoods.com using the code LIZ for an extra 10% off.  Come tell me what you think on Instagram (@lizmoody)—I’m so excited for you to fall in love with the brand like I have!
