The 20angles podcast asks 20 brilliant minds the same question.

The first series explores the question of “who or what are we?”

A psychologist, a buddhist munk, a quantum physicist etc, all have a different point of view, and together we look at the question from 20 angles.

The mission of this podcast is to learn to see ourselves for what we are, and learning to let go of what we’re not. That way we can live a more conscious and examined life, in all it's aspects.

    #001 - Prof. Lieven Annemans - Is our quest for happiness futile?

    In this episode, Steven examines the central question “who or what we are?” with Prof. Lieven Annemans.

    Lieven teaches at Ghent University, and has written several books on health economics. The last few years his research has shifted more into the direction of happiness.

    What is happiness, and is the pursuit of it a futile quest? What can we really do about it?
