Inflection Point’s Lauren Schiller Interviews Ruth Whippman about America the Anxious

A few weeks back I was interviewed on stage by KALW’s Lauren Schiller, the host of the fantastic show and podcast, Inflection Point as part of Uncharted, the Berkeley Ideas Festival. We talked about the cultural pressure to be happy and positive in America, the happiness industry and the fact that the United States is, by a wide margin the most anxious country on earth. This was a few weeks before the election, but the themes are more relevant than ever. The conversation will air on KALW later this week as well as on a few other public radio stations. But in the meantime, it is available as a podcast.
