Listen While You Spark (or Anytime) with SparkPeople Radio

Monday, November 05, 2012

Hey, SparkPeople members!

Are you ready to get sparked like you've never been sparked before?

We're excited to announce the launch of SparkPeople Radio, a premium on-demand radio show that lets you listen to our latest and greatest content anytime! This is unlike anything we've done before, though we have done radio interviews in the past. This time, we have our OWN SHOW, designed with you in mind! WooHoo!

We have paired with some of the best in the business--this is a partnership with ERN (Entertainment Radio Network), where we are working with veteran TV and radio host Alan Taylor and the former head of ABC Radio, John McConnell, who launched ESPN radio! Plus, we have brought on two fantastic hosts who are also SparkPeople members.



Best friends, authors and empowerment experts Lily Hills and Karen Hudson are the energetic and inspiring hosts of SparkPeople Radio—and SparkPeople members. This lively duo delivers a weekly mental tune-up as they bring you an hour of SparkPeople Radio that is enlightening, empowering, and entertaining. Learn more about Lily and Karen. They are fun!

Here's a quick video that they taped to share with all of you:

What You'll Hear on SparkPeople Radio

Each week, listen to interviews with SparkPeople members and experts. Chris "SparkGuy" Downie is super pumped about this new radio show, and he's going to be on almost every episode, as his schedule allows.  

You'll hear Chef Meg share her best kitchen tips, Dietitian Becky will talk about how to stay on track and still enjoy your favorite foods, and Coach Nancy share her greatest running stories. Coach Nicole will share her fitness secrets, and I'll talk about what's new on the dailySpark. We'll also have weekly interviews with members who have lost weight, gotten healthy and found happiness thanks to SparkPeople. The show will also be the best place to keep up with the latest happenings at SparkPeople, and you'll learn what SparkGuy has been up to each week.

We know that you might not have an hour free each week to listen to the entire show, but you likely have 10 minutes. That's why, in addition to sharing the shows in their entirety, we share the individual segments as well. (We apply the 10-minute rule to all healthy habits--not just workouts!)

The easiest way to tune in is to Listen While You Spark. Let the show play in one tab on your Internet browser while you log your fitness minutes, track your calories, and SparkMail your friends in another. You can also download the show and listen while you're on the elliptical, walking the dog, or driving to work. You can listen in line at the DMV, while you're doing your strength training workouts, or as you cook dinner. Folding laundry is much more fun if you're listening to a SparkPeople Radio podcast, and you will no longer dread your morning commute if you have SparkGuy in your ear to motivate you to make today your healthiest day yet!

How to Listen:

  • Visit the SparkPeople Radio homepage and click "Listen Now" (we have three episodes on the site now and another will go up next week)

  • Click the "Listen on the Go" button to download entire episodes or individual segments.

  • You can even save these segments to listen whenever you need a pick-me-up!

  • And, of course, you'll get SparkPoints for listening: 3 points per day!

Don't worry about missing an episode. We will continue to host a FULL archive of our shows! You can access them at any time:

    Cool idea! I look forward to the 10 minute segments (good call on that, I'd never be able to do the full hour at once).
