Sunday, March 20 Super Soul Sunday - Daniel Goleman Oprah sits down with psychologist, journalist and New York Times bestselling author Daniel Goleman to discuss his groundbreaking research on emotional intelligence and how we can enhance and manage our emotions to expand our brain capacity. As a pioneer in the emotional and social intelligence movement, Daniel's research changed the way we look at what it means to be smart. He explains how everyone can sharpen their own emotional intelligence; improving our relationships, our work and even the empathy we have for others. For twelve years, Daniel wrote for The New York Times specializing in psychology and brain sciences, and has authored more than 10 books on psychology, education and leadership, including the 1995 bestseller "Emotional Intelligence," which has sold more than five million copies worldwide.

Sunday, March 27 Super Soul Sunday - Pastor Joel Osteen Oprah speaks with Pastor Joel Osteen, one of America's most influential religious and spiritual leaders, about his most recent bestselling book "The Power of I Am: Two Words That Will Change Your Life Today" and the meaning behind this core principle. As Senior Pastor of the 16,800 seat Lakewood megachurch in Houston, Texas, the largest congregation in the U.S., Pastor Osteen shares with Oprah that whatever follows "I am" will always come looking for you. In this uplifting conversation, he shares the power behind the words we speak and how joy can manifest into strength.

Sunday, April 3 Super Soul Sunday - Tracy Morgan Oprah talks to acclaimed actor/comedian Tracy Morgan for a rare and intimate conversation as he begins to step back into the spotlight following a devastating multi-car crash in 2014 where a tractor-trailer struck his tour bus on the New Jersey Turnpike. Tracy sustained a life-threatening brain injury and suffered the loss of his close friend and fellow comic, James "Jimmy Mack" McNair, who was tragically killed in the accident. Oprah and Tracy discuss the spiritual encounter he had with God while in a medically induced coma, as well as the details of his personal transformation and how his outlook on life has changed through the recovery process. They also discuss the outpouring of love and support he received following the accident and how the medicine of humor and laughter helped in his remarkable recovery. Tracy is best known for his seven years as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live," starring on the hit comedy "30 Rock" as was most recently named one of Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People of 2015.

Sunday, April 10 Super Soul Sunday - Cheryl Strayed Oprah is joined by number one New York Times bestselling author Cheryl Strayed for a conversation about finding inspiration in the written word, the importance of exploring our own stories, the adjustment to becoming one of the most well-known authors in the country and her most recent bestselling book "Brave Enough." In the interview, Cheryl discusses her admiration for quotes, which she describes as "mini instruction manuals for the soul," and that whenever she needs consolation, encouragement or a clear-eyed perspective, quotes are what she turns to. Cheryl's bestselling memoir "Wild," which recounted her triumphs hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, was chosen as the first selection of Oprah's Book Club 2.0 and went on to become the critically acclaimed film starring Reese Witherspoon.

Sunday, April 17 Super Soul Sunday - Reza Aslan Oprah speaks with bestselling author and religious scholar Reza Aslan about the universal power of faith and the human desire to seek out spiritual connection. They also discuss the Islamic faith and what it means to be Muslim in a post 9/11 world. As one of the leading voices on the topic of religion, Reza shares his view that the world's religions are distinct languages by which we can communicate our faith and religiosity. By learning each other's religious languages, we can break down the walls that separate us as different people, cultures and identities, and recognize that even though different faiths use different metaphors, we are all innately connected through the human experience. They also discuss his New York Times bestselling book, "Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth."
