Journalism is a profession that is so often blighted by negative emotions like sadness, fear or anger.
In this week's podcast, we explore how to find genuine joy and happiness in our work to counter-balance these emotions and help us continue doing our jobs.
Our guest is Avery Holton, chair of the department of communication at the University of Utah, and the co-editor of a new book, Happiness In Journalism.
Part of that is an individual responsibility to manage our own emotions. But managers also need to make a genuine effort to maintain happiness levels in the newsroom.
