The Nutrition Couch hits 1 million downloads

Leanne Ward and Susie Burrell’s podcast, The Nutrition Couch, has hit 1 million downloads just over 12 months after launching. 

Produced for ARN’s iHeartPodcast Network, the podcast is one of the few leading podcasts in the nutrition genre that is hosted by qualified dietitians. 

Throughout each episode, Leanne and Susie share their experiences working with everyday Australian women to achieve their health and well-being goals. 

The Nutrition Couch covers topical news issues, client case studies, and listener diet questions.

Their most popular episode format is a weekly supermarket produce review where Susie and Leanne break down some of the good and not-so-good products found in local supermarkets.

Susie said when the podcast was started, she wanted to provide practical diet information to women to help them make more informed decisions. 

“When we started the show, we wanted to share the experiences we have working with real Australians in helping them to eat better,” said Susie. 

“Our goal is to give our busy listeners practical, user-friendly and evidence-based advice from a range of qualified professionals.”

Leanne credits the podcast’s success to being an “easy to digest” source of reliable nutrition information.

“I think one of the reasons The Nutrition Couch has been so popular, is that it can be quite difficult to find sources of credible nutrition information. There are few regulations controlling who can give out personalised nutrition advice, with influencers, celebrities, or those who have completed a basic online course able to call themselves a nutritionist,” said Leanne.

“Our goal with the podcast is to share professional dietary information in an easy-to-digest format.”

Since the launch of the show, Susie and Leanne have built a strong allegiance of followers with feedback from listeners indicating The Nutrition Couch has helped them to navigate the supermarket via access to information regarding common food-related issues and solutions. 

With Susie leading the conversation on hormones and children’s nutrition and Leanne specialising in fat loss and gut health, the duo have found the perfect recipe for podcast success.

To celebrate their 1 Million downloads and connect with fans in person, The Nutrition Couch has three live shows planned in the coming months in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, with tickets available via their website –
