Listen to Sean

Sean Conroy doesn't always sound happy. Nor does he necessarily seem happier from one podcast to the next. But listening to Sean makes me happier, and I suspect he actually is a bit happier as well. I can relate. He's funny, quick witted and kind. It's not surprising he's kind, but his occasionaly ascerbic wit belies his generosity. As Sean is so forthcoming, I feel I know him. I used to work w/ and am friendly w/ his occasional cohort Eddie Pepitone, so it makes me feel I know Sean a bit more since I know Eddie. We're also about the same age, and Knicks fans, and we still don't know why Smith didn't dunk the ball in game 5, and that's a deep bond as well. Listen to Sean Conroy Gets Happier. Even if you don't get happier... it's a pandemic. What else are you doing?

Good content. I recommend it.

Funny, relatable, mellow

Sean started this podcast before we all got locked down but it’s the perfect listen now. Charming, low-key interviews with funny, interesting people, woven together with wit that’s cutting but kind.
