Michael R. Rosmann Ph.D., psychologist and small Iowa farmer, discusses the fulfillment found in life’s simple pleasures. His book, “Excellent Joy: Fishing, Farming, Hunting, and Psychology”, is a collection of essays exploring the reasons why humans have engaged in these activities for generations. One starts to wonder, in a society that keeps telling us to buy more and consume more, but we aren’t getting any happier, if there’s something we’re missing. Dr. Rosmann explains that stored in our basic genetic material is information that has survival value for the human species. An incredible conversation you don’t want to miss!
