The Laughter Research Podcast is a bi-weekly show, in which I explore the phenomenon of laughter. From the fascinating science of laughter research, to the joys of laughing until you cry. My guests vary from academics, such as psychologists and sociologists, to entrepreneurs and comedians. In each episode, with the help of my guests, I explore the role which laughter plays in our daily lives and I examine the truths and the myths around laughter. Is laughter purely a physiological response, or is it a social and culturally mediated means of communication?

Very Enjoyable

I've read some research on laughter and let me tell you it's wasn’t much fun but this podcast is really interesting. Glen doesn't try to be funny but rather he talks about some cool ideas about why we find things funny. His guests so far have been very diverse - each one bringing a different perspective on laughter. I like Glen - he's respectful, interesting and has a great accent!
