The Happiness Lab with Dr. Laurie Santos

"Dr. Santos knows how to make a compelling speech. She presents a comprehensive tool kit in a format that will appeal to those resistant to other forms of “New Age” thinking, making concepts like meditation accessible to those who need it most."

"Santos brings the same energy into her podcast, The Happiness Lab, unpacking myths and truisms about happiness and exploring either how they work, or why they’re wrong. Accessible and methodical, they’re an oasis of calm in a very loud period."

"Santos is the voice of sanity, not to mention scrupulous research. In showing how our understanding and expectations around happiness are often wrong, the programme expertly blends scientific research with human stories...Santos is a warm yet authoritative host who shows us the contradictions in our psychological impulses."
