Dr. Stuart Brown, founder of The National Institute for Play


Confess. When was the last time you did something purely for joy? Our world focuses on productivity, not play, right? Yet, hard science (and body wisdom) tells us that play is neither silly nor impractical. In fact, wanting enjoyable experiences for their own sake is hard-wired into our brains. In Playing For Keeps, we peek into the playtime of Dateline anchor Lester Holt, hula dancer Caroline Cárdenas, and the founder of The National Institute for Play. We learn there are no excuses needed to seek our joy!
