You might think you know what it takes to lead a happier life… more money, a better job, or Instagram-worthy vacations. You’re dead wrong. Yale professor Dr. Laurie Santos has studied the science of happiness and found that many of us do the exact opposite of what will truly make our lives better. Based on the psychology course she teaches at Yale -- the most popular class in the university’s 300-year history -- Laurie will take you through the latest scientific research and share some surprising and inspiring stories that will change the way you think about happiness. iHeartMedia is the exclusive podcast partner of Pushkin Industries.

  • I am a Dr. Laurie Santos Fangirl

    I stumbled upon this podcast years ago, and ever since I have been listening to Happiness Lab almost religiously. Some of the episodes have shaped my life perspectives, such as Laurie’s interview with David Yeager about Growth Mindset.
