The Happiness Lab with Dr. Laurie Santos
The Happiness Lab Podcast. You might think you know what it takes to lead a happier life and more money, a better job, or Instagram-worthy vacations. You’re dead wrong. Yale professor Dr. Laurie Santos has studied the science of happiness and found that many of us do the exact opposite of what will truly make our lives better. Based on the psychology course she teaches at Yale–the most popular class in the university’s 300-year history–Laurie will take you through the latest scientific research and share some surprising and inspiring stories that will change the way you think about happiness
Hidden Brain is a weekly podcast hosted by Shankar Vedantam. It’s a show about science and human behaviour we think you’ll enjoy. Dr Laurie Santos was a guest on the show – so we thought you’d appreciate a chance to hear her tell Shankar all about her research work on monkeys and what they tells us about how our own biases surrounding financial decisions developed.
