Mistakenly Seeking Solitude
by The Happiness Lab with Dr. Laurie Santos
Was just talking to @danny about cashier-less retailers after seeing Amazon’s checkout-free physical store. We discussed what these cashier-less retailers are trying to solve and whether it actually creates a better or worse retail experience. This episode answers our questions: Is human interaction necessary for happiness? Or do we just want silence and solitude. Also, kudos to Dr. Santos for the ending. I smiled 🙂
EPISODE 1 -The Fear
by World on Fire
From CBC Edmonton, a new a five-part podcast that takes us to the front lines of out of control wildfires around the world. Recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic, hosts Adrienne Lamb and Mike Flannigan look at what it takes to find hope in the midst of fear and destruction. Wildfires cost us our health, our homes and our communities, yet people everywhere rebuild and not just survive but thrive.

by Copper & Heat
This episode argues that third party food delivery apps are too focused on the consumer and not attuned enough to the needs of restaurant workers. This definitely makes me think about my own behavior and the pressure restaurants are under, especially over the past few months. I would love to hear a COVID-era update to this episode!

I can tell this is going to be one of my favourite podcasts. What an incredible story and mystery.
