What's this week's podcast about?
Sam Harris speaks with Laurie Santos about the scientific study of happiness. They discuss people’s expectations about happiness, the experiencing self vs the remembered self, framing effects, the importance of social connections, the effect of focusing on the happiness of others, introversion and extroversion, the influence of technology on social life, our relationship to time, the connection between happiness and ethics, hedonic adaptation, the power of mindfulness, resilience, the often illusory significance of reaching goals, and other topics.
What's podcast club online?
It's like a book club for podcasts. Each week we discuss an episode from podcasters like Sam Harris, Krista Tippett, and Ezra Klein.
Our conversations are casual and open and we encourage everyone to speak freely, respectfully and concisely. We'll start off with a quick spiel then split everyone up into small 'breakout' groups of 4 or 5 people. We'll switch every 30 mins or so.
