Episode 70 – La Pura Vida

Escape on a virtual holiday with this week’s theme. The hint is in the show title, but you need to listen to find out what it’s all about. Broadly speaking though, it’s all about how some countries are happier than others and what we can learn to contribute to our own sense of experienced well-being.
