Welcome

The Northern Guide to Happiness is a podcast that aims to put a smile on the faces of people across the North East.

We’ll be talking to adopted and native Northerners about what makes them happy. We’ll be trying to uncover some of the things that we can all do to get more joy in our lives.

The podcast will also explore what’s special about the North and how living here makes life happier for its residents.

Some of the questions the podcast will explore include, how do we know when we’re happy? Is happiness about a feeling of euphoria or is it more like a constant state of contentedness? And does our understanding of happiness change as we age?

    We're back for a new season of happiness podcasts. We are kicking off the Northern Guide to Happiness with a brilliant interview with Jack Lowe, who for the last 6 years has been travelling round the UK  and the Republic of Ireland in a decommissioned ambulance dark room called Neena documenting every RNLI lifeboat station using glass plate photography. He talks to Alex about achieving "level contentment", and the importance of family, community, kayaking and social media amongst many other things.
