Podcast Club Chat: The Happiness Lab
Date and Time
Virtual- Link will be shared with participants in advance
For Healthy Workplace Month, employees are invited to join the Wellness@Work “Podcast Club” (think book club, but for podcasts). The Podcast Club will be listening to episodes from “The Happiness Lab with Dr. Laurie Santos” from Yale University.
Register for the Podcast Club and weekly episode titles will be shared to listen to before each discussion, Podcast Club chats will take place on the following dates:
- Oct 8, 10:00-10:30am
- Oct 15, 1:00-1:30pm
- Oct 22, 10:00-10:30am
Participants are encouraged to join all three chats, but can pick and choose if they can't attend each of them.
During the Thursday Podcast Club Chats, participants will have a chance to connect with others who have listened to the episode, share their thoughts on the episode and pose questions they were left with. This is a great chance to connect virtually with other colleagues on campus in a casual chat on an interesting podcast.
Below is an overview of The Happiness Lab Podcast:
You might think you know what it takes to lead a happier life… 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.
