Happy Hour Show 5 from happymap.com

happyhour iTunes cover medium copy

In this weeks show I have a laughing fit (8 & 12 minutes in) when Keion reveals a little more of his curious world to me.

Apart from that face swaps, a polite grizzly bear and educational food art are some of the things that made us happy.

New and Noteworthy


We recently made it onto iTunes, “New & Noteworthy” section so we’d love it if you could give us a review.

You can find the show notes below.


Appy Talk

Every week we review an app that apparently improves well-being in some way or other and give it marks out of ten.

Last Week

We’ve been trying out Calm.com



Calm attempts to bring some relaxation into your life with meditation by using relaxing sounds and calming backgrounds.

Our average marks out of ten for this were: 7

(I discounted Keion’s low mark of 2 as he only, “glanced” at it – so this unfairly brought the scores down).


This Week
