#19: The unknown advantages of playfulness

Playfulness is a quality most adults don’t think about, let alone as something desirable or even a skill. Yet, recent research suggests exactly that. In this episode, we talk with René Proyer, a professor for psychology from Austria who has studied playfulness in depth and explains to us why playfulness can be part of the solution for many problems.

Hosted by Ed Crasnick and Jonathan Widder; edited by Thomas Barth.
