Introduction to Happiness

I really enjoyed this series. Would have loved them to be longer, but it encouraged me to look up the people interviewed. You could easily listen to one episode as a reminder anytime.

Interesting, to the point

Interesting - a little repetitive. Good real life examples with pertinent case studies, to the point.
