JOHANN HARI

In the first episode of season two, Hugh chats with international best-selling author, Johann Hari.

For those of you who listened to season one, you will have heard us mention Johann Hari, and his book Lost Connections, ALOT. We’re big fans.

In fact, he’s had a huge influence on not just us, but some of our previous guests (see Missy Higgins Ep. 1). So, even though it’s a bit of a different episode than what we’d usually do, we couldn’t be more excited to be starting the season with Johann as our first guest.

Hugh and Johann have a fascinating discussion around anxiety, depression, addiction, connection and how our mental health is connected to the work around us.

Following this, Ryan and Hugh try hard not to completely fanboy over Johann as they attempt to further explore some of these powerful ideas.

If this episode has triggered anything for you around mental health, we strongly recommend lifeline on 13 11 14.

Destination Happiness visited Hugh and his family at his home to learn more about The Resilience Project. As Hugh said, “it will be a fine example of why I’ve thought about doing radio, but never TV!”
