It gets you thinking (in a good way)

Really enjoy this podcast. Asking the question “are you happy?” prompts some interesting and unique discussions. Each episode has a new flavor. Most importantly, it really helps the listener self-reflect about what makes us happy and allows us to use some tips from the guests to improve our daily happiness. A+!

Insightful and thought provoking

I love listening to this podcast. Andrew does a wonderful job of choosing guests from varied backgrounds and walks of life. I look forward to listening to new episodes every Wednesday.

A great pick-me-up on my commute!

I've listened to a lot of TED-talk-esque podcasts but I feel like Are You Happy? is a refreshing break from the classic "expert advice on how to be happy in 10 steps that are actually impossible to implement" bit. Instead, Andrew does a great job of sitting down with a nice mix of guests from different backgrounds and life stages, and engaged with them as if he's known them all personally for years. The Christian Spicer episode is a real treat, and I'm excited to hear more! Definitely a great listen!
