More commercials than podcast
Too much about own things
Too many plugs for what you are selling..,over and over I didn’t feel enjoyable
Great podcast but way too many ads
I love the show but there are SO many ads. Gretchen also seems to be getting more into selling stuff now, which is distracting from the content.
This podcast brings me so much joy. It’s such an easy listen, and I always walk away feeling better after listening. Elizabeth and Gretchen are knowledgeable, honest, and real. I appreciate the trips they give, the books the recommend, and the interviews they do. Wonderful!
I love this podcast because you get concrete tips to try. I’m currently listening to the older episodes from before I started listening. Yes, I’m a completist. :)
Helpful AND Happy
Love all the practical advice. But I especially love that they say “this doesn’t work for everyone”. Acknowledging the different types of people need different solutions makes me feel like I don’t have to try every hack and thing they say.
Loved Gretchen’s book - The Happiness Project. I enjoy the podcast and learn a lot. Sometimes there is a little too much wasted chitchat but overall it’s great.
A bright spot in my week!
Love this podcast, the practical tips (happiness hacks) they share have helped me more times than I can count! Love the amount of listener interaction, and how open they are to new ideas.
I have listened to the show for about as long as it has aired. I can’t get enough! I love the dynamic between the sisters and how they are so different but both seem to appreciate their differences. This creates a nice show atmosphere. I love Liz’s voice in particular- it comforts me so much! I also find her hilarious. The pedi-egg! Lol … both are smart, strong, insightful women. I have applied many of their ideas to my own life and most work well for me. I enjoy the different segments of the show and always love the guests they interview. Lots of people were writing about ads, but that happens with all podcasts. Props to talking about some current systemic problems in the US- like racism. Would love to see some more of that deeper content discussed. Love you ladies!❤️
Love this and it keeps getting better!
This show helped me not feel so alone and in a bubble during the lockdown phase and now I still find it’s a huge boost in my day!
My podcast at bedtime
I love Gretchen’s and Elizabeth’s optimism and the “happy” info I get from their podcasts. They calm my over-active brain at bedtime, so you can say that they are my adult, ADHD-brain type of lullaby.
Enjoyable and educational
My daughter turned me onto this podcast several months ago and I have faithfully listen to it ever since. Elizabeth and Gretchen do a great job giving tips and encouragement on how to live your best life. It’s also a great break from political podcasts.

My centering moment every week
I have followed Gretchen since “The Happiness Project” but barely hopped on the podcast this year. I have enjoyed it. I downloaded the 21 for 21. It is happy, upbeat, and provides practical tips. Love it.
Good show but many ads
Good show but lots of ads—way more than any other podcast I listen to. I also don’t find the “Little Happier” episodes valuable and always end up deleting them.
They feel like friends
I stumbled upon this podcast and I love listening as I walk. The hosts are sisters and it makes me think of me and my sister, which gives me a happiness boost in itself. It’s a very natural, helpful podcast and I am so glad I found it.
I am hooked on Gretchen and Elizabeth and learned about them from my therapist. I was having difficulty with getting nerves on my high strung horse, as I am getting older. I decided to roll lavender on his nose and my neck and listen to “Happier” loud in my pocket when I rode. It completely replaced any thoughts I had of him getting scared and spinning out or running off, and we rode peacefully! Replace a bad thought with a good podcast!
I love to listen while I work. I enjoy the positive energy, occasional laugh and great book recommendations.
Happier is a Delight
The Happier podcast is truly such a delight to listen to. I have been listening for years and it brings me so much joy- from the hacks, interviews, and try this at home’s, to the wins and gold stars. Thank you, Gretchen and Liz, for being a bright spot in my day!
Love this podcast
It always brightens my day and I love the relationship between Elizabeth and Gretchen. The perfect pick-me-up as a break from all of my other work-related podcasts.
One of my favorite pods!
I love this podcast & always look forward to new episodes coming out! It’s always a mix of interesting, fun, and practical information.
My favorite listen, every week. This podcast is always structured, easy to listen to, and full of PRACTICAL, real life, I-could-actually-do-that suggestions for how to be happier. Thank you, Gretchen and Elizabeth!
This is my first review - I love this podcast because it’s planned & organized. They don’t randomly talk like some other podcasts. Thank you Gretchen & Elizabeth for making listening to your podcast, a time of happiness for me 😀
A kindred spirit, meaningful yet structured
I've been a fan of Gretchen's since reading The Happiness Project in 2010, and discovering she was a kindred spirit who loves in-depth, meaningful connections yet takes a highly organized and structured approach to exploring those aspects. #Twinsies. Her podcast is no exception, she consistently delivers unique insight and vulnerability in her interviews, and has the most wonderful guests. I highly recommend Happier!
Happier really does bring some happiness…..
Really enjoy this podcast. The banter between the sisters always makes me smile. A lot of podcasts talk “at you” but this one is like having a conversation with your friends.
This podcast is creative, insightful and inspiring! I am absolutely hooked !
This podcast just brings me so much happiness.
My favorite podcast
This is my favorite podcast. I look forward to it every week. There is always something helpful to take away.
Just love it!
I just love the practical, research-based, whimsical and wise ideas and advise these women offer. So simple and brilliant all at the same time. And they really pack in a lot of great content - in each and every episode.
Love show, makes me happier
I wanted to reduce stress and anxiety in my life and be happier. Instead of listening to news podcasts, I listen to this, it’s helped.
Robear in PDX
Such an uplifting, wholesome podcast. Love this show & these sisters so much!
Actual simple advice for being happier
I love listening to these sisters and the advice is so good. My nails are painted my signature color, I have so many hooks on the walls, I don’t finish books I don’t like, I try to identify myself vs my fantasy self, I try to design my seasons, I get in nature when I can… listen and this will make sense! Thank you!
The Best Podcast!
This podcast has been life changing!! I have listened to every episode to date (which has taken about 3 years). It has allowed me to learn more about myself and work on building a happier and healthier life. I have also read all of Gretchen’s books (all of which are wonderful). I can absolutely say that I am happier because of this podcast!
I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for creating such an impactful podcast! I believe that we all have a voice that deserves to be heard. Thank you for putting this into the world! BE UNBROKEN! @MichaelUnbroken
Let it go already
Wow, people will turn anything political and negative. Gretchen & Liz share about their whole lives: friends, family, jobs, childhoods — It makes zero sense that their opinions and values won’t peek through. Isn’t it enough that they are trying to be good people and help others; do they really have to tiptoe around someone’s sad feelings about an election? I sure didn’t see that happening the other way around 4 years ago. So if hearing someone express an opinion other than your own is offensive to you, this may not be the place for you. Other than that, the MANY ads and MANY plugs are pretty annoying (especially if I’m listening on a long walk). But I usually appreciate the insights and musings of these sisters. It’s pretty light and frothy, but I think they’re fairly up front about their purpose.
A Treasure Trove
This podcast is so applicable & relatable - hosted by 2 amazing and experienced women. Scroll through any of their collection of podcasts over the years and pick one that jumps out at you. Start anywhere, anytime and you are sure to walk away with any number of insights, tips or just a few great thoughts - to brighten, lighten & enhance your day and days to come.
Always something interesting
A recent listener (three months), I’m shank full a friend recommended it. There’s always something interesting, positive and new to hear about, and appreciate the input Gretchen and Elizabeth have. Usually disappointed when an episode ends.
I have learned SO much from this podcast! Thank you for all the tips! Sadie Campbell Upholder
Good place a listen
I almost always get a good idea when listening. I also like the sisters’ rapport with each other. They are both very different from me— and from each other— but seem friendly and approachable. It’s nice “checking in” with them each week.
I’ve found this podcast to have helpful tips and ‘homework’ to do in order to make one’s life happier. Some good interviews too. Keep up the good work. :)
My podcast companions!
Listening to Gretchen and Elizabeth has carried me through many ups and downs over the years. I’m so grateful for their weekly insights, accountability, and laughs!
I love your honest , smart , funny podcast.
Love, love, love this podcast. It’s my all time favorite. I haven’t missed a single episode. I’ve read all of Gretchen’s books and even had the pleasure of seeing her in person for a couple book signing/readings. The dynamic between sisters Gretchen and Elizabeth is so great…even with them being so different you can tell how much they love and respect each other. Both are very likeable and relateable people. While both being amazing in their own unique ways. Finally, I’m so impressed by Gretchen's development of the Four Tendency framework. It comes up often in the podcast which I really like…because knowing that I’m Questioner has really been a know myself better that’s made a difference in my everyday life. I appreciate the consistency of the podcast while at the same time the material remains fresh. Big thank you to Elizabeth and Gretchen for continuing to give us the pleasure of your podcast!
Have been a repeat listener because the podcast is entertaining while it informs. I can apply their hacks and try things at home. Love the 4 tendencies work that helps me understand personality traits.
Elizabeth and Gretchen truly make me happier
This podcast is not only informative but also lighthearted. It gives me useful tips and tricks and makes me smile from ear to ear. Gretchen and Elizabeth make my life happier!!!
Really Interesting and Helpful!
Super helpful as an 18 year old entering college and adulthood!
Fresh to stale
I really enjoyed this podcast at first with their energizing ideas and tidbits - but they just don’t have enough to say anymore. They are predictable in their weekly gold stars and demerits( can we just forget hosting a dinner party? You don’t want to. Just don’t). They have very grating podcast voices. Fine at first, but just singes the ear now.
Happiness with Gretchen Rubin
I love the practical, wise, fun tips and hacks on this podcast. Little things indeed can make a significant difference in the quality of our daily lives. Gretchen and Liz are smart, creative, funny, and kind!
A grounded pick-me-up
I absolutely adore Gretchen and her happiness-oriented wisdom that is grounded in real life and real facts. The podcast manages to be fun without ever being stupid, and every episode has a useable idea. Love this podcast, as well as her newsletter and books. A real treasure!
My life changed after I have started to listen to this podcast
I love this podcast so much, I have started to listen from episode 1 and there is a lot of catching up to do. I rigorously take notes on any aspect I feel I need to learn and remember. It has completely changed my life, I feel a lot more in control of my life, a lot more happier and I have inculcated and I am still inculcating so many healthy habits, all thanks to this podcast. Love you Gretchen and love you Elizabeth… u rock !!
My favorite podcast for years
The Happier podcast has been my go-to podcast as long as I can remember. Gretchen and Liz are insightful and engaging. They bring practical tips every week. After listening for some time you see the world through a new lens, a happier one.
