Eric Weiner is an author, keynote speaker, and blogger. He is known for writing books that ask some of life’s more profound questions on happiness, intellect, and philosophy. His latest book, The Socrates Express: In Search of Life Lessons from Dead Philosophers, explores what dead philosophers can teach us about modern-day living. Eric was also a former foreign correspondent for NPR and a reporter for The New York Times.


Eric joins me today to discuss the idea of progress and whether it’s always good or bad. He explains why religion still has a place in today’s technology-driven life. He describes the different ways technology can be biased. He shares what it means to be useful when aging alongside newer and faster technologies. Eric also discusses the easiest ways to find happiness today.


"What I find interesting is not what is said, but what is unsaid. What is unsaid is we are confused about progress, what it means, what it looks like, and its importance." - Eric Weiner
