A Health podcast featuring Dan Harris
 2 people rated this podcast
Dan Harris is a fidgety, skeptical ABC newsman who had a panic attack live on Good Morning America, which led him to something he always thought was ridiculous: meditation. He wrote the bestselling book, "10% Happier," started an app -- "10% Happier: Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics" -- and now, in this podcast, Dan talks with smart people about whether there's anything beyond 10%. Basically, here's what this podcast is obsessed with: Can you be an ambitious person and still strive for enlightenment (whatever that means)? New episodes every Wednesday morning.

BluntFarce reviewed this podcast on Jun 10th, 2017
"In an interesting mix or seeking and skepticism, Dan H. talks to a wide assortment of people on subjects of meditation, eastern vs. western thinking and the scientific vs. mumbo-jumbo arguments for and against all of the above. A good listen."
