Four days to go!

April 26, 2017

Dear Greater Good fans and friends,

Our fundraising campaign for the new podcast series is going well and has just a few days to go. Although we still have about $10,000 to go to reach our goal, we're proceeding with our plans to begin creating the show: choosing themes from among the wealth of interesting and useful research on well-being, choosing stories to tell (and hosts to tell them), and planning recording sessions in the studio.

We wouldn't have gotten this far without our loyal and generous supporters, and for that all of us here at the GGSC are very grateful.

In the meantime, there's a lot of other interesting Greater Good content for you to enjoy now:

I'll send another update when the campaign wraps up. We'll also get to work delivering the perks our donors are entitled to.

Many thanks and best wishes!

Jesse, Jason, Dacher, and the GGSC Team

p.s. It's not to late to nudge us toward our goal by sharing our podcast campaign on Facebook or directly with your friends using this link:
