In this episode we are joined by Emily Esfahani Smith, whose work you may recognize from The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, The New York Times, or other outlets. In preparation for the start of 2016 (and all the new year resolutions that come with January 1st!) we talk to Emily about what it is to live a life full of meaning, and how that might differ from the pursuit of happiness (are you listening, Jefferson?). Emily also gives us a preview of her book, due out in 2017. It's a great conversation! You can also check out our blog for more of Emily's work.
