Why play matters for kids and adults

July 7, 2014

Guest: Stuart Brown

Play isn’t just for kids. Researcher and psychiatrist STUART BROWN has spent decades studying play and has found that play is just as important for adults. He argues, in fact, that play is an essential factor in our health, success and happiness. Marty talks to Brown, the founder of The National Institute for Play, about the effects of play and about ways of incorporating more playfulness into our lives.
