E82: Johann Hari: Everything You Think You Know About Meaning & Happiness Is Wrong

The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett

This podcast is a real treat and a podcast that you cannot miss!Johann has come back and what honour it was to record. He has to be my all-time favourite guest ever! His book ‘Lost Connections’ had such a positive, transformative impact on my life and truly changed my perspective on how I viewed depression & addiction. I am sure that the information shared today will be valuable and important topics that our society needs to hear. Johann is a very successful and inspirational British-Swiss writer and journalist with 2 books hitting The New York Times best sellers list. Born in Glasgow Scotland then relocated to London when he was young, Johann experienced some childhood trauma having suffered from being physically abused as child and his mother suffering from an illness.Starting his career as a journalist he won many awards such as Journalist of the year and was named by the Daily Telegraph as one of the most influential people. Johann then went to onto being an author writing the worldwide known “Lost Connections” and “Chasing the Scream”. He also released a TED talk back in 2015 “Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong” which has now over 17 million views.This honest conversation lasted around 2 hours and we even went on into the evening off air. I genuinely think that this might be the most important podcast you choose to ignore. I’m not giving much away, but you will thank me after.Topics: Why do you like writing books?  Rat Park Working from home, living through screens  Finding meaning within the machine Are we struggling to form meaningful connections   How good are you at making connections Psychedelics  Is Social media helping us rally together   Your new book & your writing style Social media Johann:https://www.instagram.com/johann.hari/ https://twitter.com/johannhari101 VOTE FOR US FOR BEST BRITISH PODCAST:https://www.britishpodcastawards.com/vote?utm_source=emailoctopus&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Nominated Sponsor:uk.huel.com/

S1 / E25 Spirituality & Depression: A Conversation with author Johann Hari

The Marianne Williamson Podcast: Conversations That Matter

With rates of depression and anxiety rising — skyrocketing during the pandemic — we’re all looking for a quick fix.But a quick fix doesn’t get to the root of the problem as author Johann Hari details in his book, "Lost Connections: Why You’re Depressed and How to Find Hope."  Suffering from depression for most of his life, Hari set out to study why so many are struggling and what he came up with, his 9 causes of depression, is spot-on.  This is a topic that’s close to my heart - something I’ve spoken and written about for years and I couldn’t be happier to have this discussion with Johann. We talk about our struggles with depression, habits you can build to lessen the severity when the sadness strikes and how society and government contributes to people’s despair.

24. The War on Drugs with Johann Hari

The Drug Science Podcast

This week, Professor Nutt speaks to journalist Johann Hari @johannhari101 about the ‘war on drugs’. It is now widely accepted that the ‘war on drugs’ has failed, with many people believing it can never succeed. Despite this, politicians from around the world continue to follow this mantra as an effective strategy to reduce drug-related harms. The reason why… politics. Currently, it is politically damaging to support the legalisation of drugs because public discourse has been led to believe that legalisation will cause anarchy and chaos. Contrarily, what we have now is a complete lack of control. Legally regulating the supply of drugs is the only way to bring order to this chaos. Johann Hari is the author of two New York Times best-selling books. His first, ‘Chasing the Scream: the First and Last Days of the War on Drugs’, is currently being adapted into a major Hollywood film by Oscar-winning director Lee Daniels, and into a non-fiction documentary series. His first TED talk, ‘Everything You Think You Know About Addiction is Wrong’, has been viewed more than 40 million times across all platforms. He has written over the past decade for some of the world’s leading newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Guardian, the Spectator, Le Monde Diplomatique, the Melbourne Age, and Politico. He is a regular panellist on HBO’s Realtime With Bill Maher.Chasing the Scream Lost ConnectionsProfessor Nutt fired Portugal decriminalisation Bud OsbornSafe injection facilities Philip Owen – coffin Billie Holiday Strange Fruit Ruth DreifussNeil Woods episode Swiss experiment Crispin Blunt episode Harry Anslinger Become a Drug Science Community Member: https://www.donate.drugscience.org.uk/Twitter: @ProfDavidNutt @Drug_ScienceA Fascinate Productions podcast for Drug Science★ Support this podcast ★
