Something Different!

Really really love this podcast. It’s nice to have something more happy and more towards helping others! The only downfall is when some people are on the podcast all I can hear is the salvia in their mouth 😣 I’ve unfortunately had to skip a few episodes because of this

Nice format

I love the try-and-see approach to each episode. The guests all seem to really benefit from their experiments.

Favorites!

This has been one of my favorite podcasts to tune into at least once a week. One of my favorite episodes that stood out to me and urged me to leave a review was “How to Keep Love Alive” (season 5 episode 3). I always appreciate hearing what the psychologists and experts at the end of each episode have to say about the exercises. Keep up the good work Science of Happiness! 💗

Brilliant

I stumbled onto this podcast through my research on universal facial expression, work done in modern era by Dr. Paul Ekman. Interestingly, his work and work carried on by Dr. Eve Ekman led me to Berkeley’s Center for Greater Good. I have little doubt that we are all living in a mad, dangerous world - yet, our hope and our potential for better personal and collective human lives has always been within us. Thanks for this work GGIA.

Blinded by the left

Why do you feel the need to bash President Trump and claim that xenophobia and white supremacy are on the rise (no data- scare tactics) during an episode that is supposed to be about finding the good in life. He does not hate “all brown people”. Leave your hateful bias out of a podcast that references the utilization of Science. Are you so blinded by your left-wing media-induced hate that you cannot accept that others have a different opinion. I call this arrogance. Why alienate half of the country by bringing your politics into what, otherwise as an enjoyable podcast series.

Okay.

The ads get annoying. There are some good episodes but I’ve noticed most episodes, the guests end up just talking about themselves and their life. I really haven’t heard much about a science of being happy, just people telling their life stories. It gets really boring and I drift off a lot. They need to come up with a better approach and actually focus on the science of happiness.

successfully blends science with specific individual stories

one of my top 5 podcasts! the tone is gentle but persuasive/encouraging. The guests are very authentic, disclosing, and likeable/relatable. They are also free people of color/non-WASP. The research is well summarized & fascinating. Commercials are brief and never obnoxious. These aren’t quick fixes but truly useful ways to improve ourselves and our families and communities. try a few episodes!

Interesting

I like this podcast because of the different interviews he does. Just like the title it really is the science of happiness. It’s the study of it. Some of the interviews are better than others but ya, it inspires me. Keep up the good work guys!

I wish this made me happy

Unfortunately it’s really boring. There are a few good points and practices, however I find myself drifting off and not paying attention. Maybe it gets better???

Barf

The audio equivalent of watching an old episode of Oprah. If crafting, journaling, forcing forgiveness, visualization, etc is enough to bring you happiness—more power to you. Pretty useless for others.

Really well done

Even if you don’t try the techniques they discuss, just listening to the podcast itself feels really good. And as a scientist, I appreciate the evidence-based approach. Thanks!
