Dan Harris is a fidgety, skeptical journalist who had a panic attack on live national television, which led him to try something he otherwise never would have considered: meditation. He went on to write the bestselling book, 10% Happier. On this show, Dan talks with eminent meditation teachers, top scientists, and even the odd celebrity. Guests include everyone from His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Brené Brown to Karamo from Queer Eye. On some episodes, Dan ventures into the deep end of the pool, covering subjects such as enlightenment and psychedelics. On other episodes, it’s science-based techniques for issues such as anxiety, productivity, and relationships. Dan's approach is seemingly modest, but secretly radical: happiness is a skill you can train, just like working your bicep in the gym. Your progress may be incremental at first, but like any good investment, it compounds over time.

Dan Savage on how to handle disappointment...

The subject of sexuality is discussed by Dan Savage, noted for what I think is sage. Although known for advising gay men, his observations & subject matter on sexual relationships is often practical words for all of us. And his practical wisdom is a universal. I adore him for doing this. My thanks, Mr. Savage.

Always inspirational

Meditation practice has been transformational for me and Dan’s work along with all the wonderful teachers on TPH has been paramount for me.

Thank you all, I’m grateful for you.

Thank you!

This is now my #1 favourite podcast. I have recommended it so often, I think people are starting to get annoyed with me. Thank you for the truly remarkable content, great guests, and I found the 10% Nicer Loving Kindness meditation series to be life changing. Thank you thank you thank you.
