Gretchen Rubin is the co-hosts of “Happier with Gretchen Rubin.” One of the most thoughtful and influential voices on the subject of happiness, habits and human nature. She's the author of several New York Times bestsellers including The Happiness Project and Better Than Before.
Gretchen Rubin’s been keeping it positive, despite the circumstances. Then again, that’s probably what you’d expect from one of the most prominent voices on the subject of happiness. Rubin is the best-selling author behind books like “The Happiness Project” and “The Four Tendencies,” and she has the distinction of being one of the earliest author-to-podcaster crossovers in the business with her podcast, Happier with Gretchen Rubin, launching back in 2015. Nick talks to Rubin about her interest in the subject of happiness and human nature, her podcasting work and the concept of “self-help” as a genre.
