  • Summary

  • Happiness tips to improve your life. Designed by experts, tested by our presenters.

    Each week on Happiness...and How to Get It, comedian Charlie George and anthropologist Mary-Ann Ochota dive into a topic, trend or technique and ask vital questions, like: where has this idea come from? What’s the evidence? And is this more or less effective than a custard cream and a cuppa.

    They’ll speak to world-class experts, try some self-experimentation and discuss the science behind the headlines. The result? Practical advice to help make you happier.

    A Listen production for Audible Originals.

Love it :)

Loved it listening while I'm working from home in lockdown and some great tips on relieving stress, laugh more and take time out to think but not let those things distract you when working.

Easy listen

Found this podcast a great listen while working or just chilling out. Light topics so nothing to fry your brain but interesting theories.

Some good content but very irritating to listen to

Like... Every... Like... Other... Like.. Word.. Like.. Is...like... like 🙄 experts are okay but delivery just doesn't suit me when I'm listening carefully.

I wish for more

This is a fantastic series of discussions. I listened to one episode every morning while taking a walk. I wish I could listen to more episodes from them. They present with joyful voices that is so warm. It's also interesting how they organize the delivery. You get to listen to know what they know about a topic, a discussion from an expert in the field on that topic, a scientific study, and presenters trying out some methods for a week and giving the feedback. Such a nice way to keep the curiosity on top.

Simply perfect. I want more!

I absolutely loved listening. It felt like old friends catching up, growing together, and having fun! The ladies' banter and wit won me over. As I stayed, I began to look forward to my daily listen with these new friends. I enjoyed it, and myself and those around me are better for it.

Very Good.

Really loved this podcast. I've listened to so many podcasts, but never finished anyone so far. This is my first podcast that I've completed fully. Not only that, I wished it never ended. The best I've ever listened.
