In this episode of the Ikigai Podcast, I speak with Gordon Mathews, who is an author of nine books, and the Professor of Anthropology of the University of Hong Kong. We discuss ikigai and the subject of his first book, "What Makes Life Worth Living? How Japanese and Americans Make Sense of the Worlds."
When I recorded the interview with Gordon, his university had been under siege for four days with the protesting in Hong Kong. So I was very grateful for the time he gave me. And we hit it off really well and had a very enjoyable conversation on the subject of his book, What makes life worth living? I hope you enjoy listening to this podcast episode as much as I enjoyed speaking with Gordon.
