Each show focuses on a different topic and features three guests who join Monica for onstage fireside chats and then an audience Q&A. The vibe is Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis meets Inside The Actors Studio meets philosophy.  One guest is an academic philosopher and two are  “philosopher-ish folk.”  Because Monica believes strongly in the need to diversify the voices and perspectives represented, she never has more than one white male guest and aims for a variety of ideologies, backgrounds, and personalities.

SEASON 1 of The Happier Hour was taped from January-May 2018. 

We raise our glass to...

Ben and the whole Caveat team for hosting us, Andrew for recovering our audio files when we lost them (omg don't ask), The Haiku Guys & Gals for their free haikus for the audience, Visuals for Change for live illustrations, Kenny and Rod for the photos, Sarah for the logo, our speakers and guests for braving the terrible NYC weather and subway, and Dionysus for all the wine Monica consumed.
