TechCrunch Live Podcast: How to battle burnout and profit off human thriving, according to Thrive Global’s Ariana Huffington

On this week’s TechCrunch Live podcast, TechCrunch+ Editor In Chief Alex Wilhelm led the interview portion of our show. Alex spoke to Kleiner Perkins partner Mamoon Hamid and founder & CEO of Thrive Global and co-founder of Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington. Huffington reckons that her company can help modern workers become healthier and more productive, partly through better habits — including sleep and calculated mental resets. And Mamoon thinks that the business she’s built around the idea has a big future.
