Elizabeth and I are having so much fun with our weekly podcast, Happier with Gretchen Rubin.

About the Podcast

In the podcast, my sister Elizabeth Craft and I talk about how to build happier habits into everyday life, as we draw from cutting-edge science, ancient wisdom, lessons from pop culture—and our own experiences (and mistakes).  We’re sisters, so we don’t let each other get away with much!

PodcastHappierLogoThe New Yorker observed, “Their voices remind you that life is a human project that we’re all experimenting with.”

Buzzfeed called the podcast “life-changing.” Yep, we’re life-changing!

iBooks wrote, “Rubin’s fascination with human behavior—as well as her sincere belief that we can make our lives more fulfilling and joyous—shines through in her podcasts, blog, and books.”

And one of my Twitter followers said this…

If you already listen to the podcast, it’s a big help to a newish podcast like ours if you rate us, review us, or tell your friends about the podcast. Not sure how to rate or review? Scroll to the bottom here.

Added bonus for me: As readers of my books know, my relationship with my sister Elizabeth is one of the most important in my life, but because she lives in L.A. and I live in New York City, it was hard to find enough time to talk. Now we talk constantly, for the podcast — a huge boost in my happiness.

Happy listening!

    Just a question on ratings and reviews. Those of us on android-only with no access to iTunes (I’m probably not the only one!), where do we best place our reviews and/or ratings? Do you have any preference?

      If you can’t review on iTunes and still want to help the show: Tell a friend! Post about it on social media. Take a friend’s phone and subscribe for them!

      Reviews help others find the show, but if you can’t review, there are many other grass roots way to get the words out. Thank you!

    I really appreciated episode 29 about clean slates and lowering the bar. It was very timely for me as I’ve just moved country (Switzerland back to the UK) and, having read Better Than Before, have been very consciously trying to exploit the clean slate opportunity, mainly by re-establishing the good habits I managed to build up in Switzerland (healthy eating, sewing with friends, yoga/ exercise, creative writing… Switzerland really is a very healthy country!), and starting some new habits, e.g. blogging!
    However, I’d been putting pressure on myself to ‘get it all right’ at once; I thought, if I don’t do it all now I am wasting this (clean slate) opportunity! In particular, I was stressing about getting into paid work (some sort of teaching) after several years of being a stay-at-home mum and writer. The podcast helped me to remember to take it easy on myself. I don’t have to do it all at once! I remembered Susan Jeffer’s affirmation too: ‘One step at a time is enough for me.’ Indeed! Thanks.
