Happier With Gretchen Rubin
Best-selling author Gretchen Rubin guides every episode in the direction of finding happiness. Her show continues her written pursuit to live a more improved life. “She’s been interviewed by Oprah, eaten dinner with Daniel Kahneman, and walked arm-in-arm with the Dalai Lama.” I mean come on, that’s the Dalai Lama we’re talking about… But if that didn’t convince you, this might…
Inc says, “The audience for Happier is really anyone trying to better understand him- or herself and others. Rubin’s ongoing look at different personality types, how they respond to the world, and which habits may be easier or harder for them to incorporate into their lives is valuable food for thought for anyone in the midst of building a team–or trying to get along with one.”
NPR describes this podcast as: “The inside story of a TV revolution. In this new WBEZ podcast, Oprah Winfrey tells the behind-the-scenes story of her iconic TV talk show, along with producers, staffers, TV executives, and ratings rival Phil Donahue. The three-part series chronicles the show’s scrappy roots in Chicago, its rise to daytime dominance, and the powerful sway Winfrey came to have in American life.”
Do I really have to convince you to listen to anything Oprah says? I thought so.
Don’t be fooled by this podcast’s playful name. Host Ali Brown’s inspirational talks with female entrepreneurs such as Hint Water CEO Kara Goldin, Stella & Dot’s Jessica Herrin, and author Kim Kiyosaki uncover all sorts of challenges and events that lead to personal and professional success.
“Brown keeps it authentic with a frank sense of humor and bits about her own life experiences, from her early entrepreneurial struggles to her more recent run-ins with the drama of raising toddler twins. With entrepreneurship as a backdrop, Brown delivers a show that’s more motivational and inspiring than it is process-focused–and that’s part of the appeal.” – Inc
