It’s been said that holding onto a grudge is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. But sometimes that poison concoction is just so tempting…sweet even. You don’t need a big gulp of it…just a little swig to keep you straight. The problem is that the poison turns bitter every time and it never ends up sitting well in the gut. So why do we hold onto resentments? What good does it do us? In this episode of Easy Listening, a podcast about podcasts, we hear from experts on the subject to find out why we grudge and how we stop. GIna Grad and Teresa Strasser welcome you to the show.

The Science of Happiness is our podcast focus for this week!  The episode of the show is entitled “How to Give Up a Grudge”. The Science of Happiness is a production of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley.  You can find the Greater Good Science Center online at Greater Good: The Science of a Meaningful Life
