On air interview questions:
- Getting Happy …when you wish you were dead addresses our society’s greatest taboo: suicide. Yet you have a rather different attitude toward suicide prevention. Tell us about that.
- Given the failure of suicide prevention to actually prevent an increase in suicides, what can we do as individuals to help people avoid suicide?
- When you talk about connecting, do you mean just being able to see people and have a conversation? What about shaking hands and touching each other – especially in a post-pandemic world?
- You have described a minimum for connecting, from just having a conversation all the way through to eight meaningful physical contacts each day. Is there a minimum level of effort for feeling effective?
- If it’s all about getting connected and feeling effective, then why does the title say “getting happy?” What does it mean?
- We have been talking mostly in the abstract about things people can do to connect, be effective, and get happy. What is something practical we can do to make this stuff happen?
- Is PEP and POOP a one-side thing? Are we always trying to replace POOP with PEP?
- Choosing PEP over POOP sounds good, but it also sounds like it can take a bit of time to build those new thought habits. Can you give us some tips for how we can get happy right now, today?
- How can listeners get a copy of Getting Happy…when you wish you were dead?
I’m also happy to do free-style interviews where we start with this basic list of questions and you’re welcome to pull from it, accept caller questions, and follow interesting ideas that come up during the interview.
I also ask you to provide a recording of the interview after we’re done. I’m happy to connect you with my Google Drive account so you can send a video or audio file at your convenience.
