Ta-da! In this not-so-Little Happier, I'm announcing the launch of a family of podcasts, headed by me, called The Onward Project.
These podcasts will make your life better -- happier, healthier, more productive, more creative.
The shows are very different from each other, but they share a similar vibe. They're fascinating, with great hosts, and they're all full of concrete, manageable ideas, research, stories, and tips for how to make your life better.
The idea is that if you like Happier, you'll like the other Onward Project shows, too.
Radical Candor from Kim Scott and Russ Laraway. Kim describes the podcast as "how not to hate the boss you have, and how not to become the boss you hate." It's all about how to be constructive, and critical when necessary, and also kind. If you want to look at Kim's book Radical Candor, it's here. New episodes every Tuesday.
Side Hustle School from Chris Guillebeau. If you heard our episode 87, our live event in Seattle, you heard us talk to Chris -- so you have a sense of what an interesting guy he is. In Side Hustle School, he talks about how to pursue a "side hustle" -- a money-making project you pursue apart from your day job. It's not a part-time job; it's not a hobby; it's something you create. Chris is a Rebel, by the way. New short episodes every day.
I'm so excited about these podcasts -- these hosts are so engaging, with such interesting stories and perspectives. And I can't wait to hear what you think! Let me know.
And to give a teaser, in March, two more podcasts will launch:
Yes, Elizabeth is doing another podcast! This one is with her longtime writing partner, Sarah Fain. It's about how to be happier, healthier, saner, more creative, more successful, and more productive in a back-biting, superficial, chaotic, unpredictable, fundamentally world. I can't wait to listen. Elizabeth and Sarah have the craziest stories.
We got a huge response after episode 52, when we interviewed Melissa Hartwig of Whole30. Whole30 is a very structured way of eating for thirty days, to re-set your body clock. As we discussed, it's not an approach that works for everyone, but for many people, it's life-changing (and I don't use that word lightly). Her ideas resonated so much with listeners that I asked her to start her own podcast.
