Shetty’s podcast, “On Purpose with Jay Shetty,” debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes charts and has since remained No. 1 on the iTunes Health and Wellness charts. He has had many high-profile guests on his podcast, including Russell Brand, Novak Djokovic, Mike Posner, Lilly Singh, David Goggins, Gisele Bündchen, Rob Dyrdek, Chelsea Handler, Dr. Daniel Amen, Arianna Huffington, Charlamagne Tha God, Ray Dalio, Gary Vaynerchuk, and Chrissy Metz, among others.
