Hello! And Good News

A podcast highlighting the people, places, and current events that are affecting the world in a positive way. Each week Hannah sits down with a different performer/comedian and unveils to them all of the best (and silliest) news she’s discovered. Let’s be honest, the bulk of our news tends to highlight the absolute worst dang stuff going in the world. A lot of it is fear based, repetitive, and goes straight bummer-town. This is not to say that being aware of these events isn’t valid or important, but it is just as important to acknowledge that, most of the time, when bad shenanigans are happening there are also people out there working to make it better. So join Hannah and her comedic guest as they discuss those positive rays of sunshine that are making a difference in the world.

This week Hannah has actress and improviser Jen Cascio over. They briefly revisit the best Girl Scout cookie seller of all time from Charlie’s episode with some more accurate numbers. Hannah tells Jen about Baltimore’s Mr. Trash Wheel, the adorable googley-eyed, solar powered, trash eating bug that works hard to keep the harbor clean. (@MrTrashWheel) They also talk about Austin, Texas and the city’s amazing initiative to become a waste free city by 2040! The grocery store In.Gredients is well on their way, creating only 3.74lbs of trash each month! The Go Fund Me of the week features a community working hard to help an artist get back on his feet and recover from homelessness. We then move over to Kenya and talk about Nancy ‘Chela’ Chelagat Cherwon, who is one of female street artists in the country. She lives with other artists and makes a living with her skills. She also works to impact the community around her by sending positive messages through her art, particularly in violent or crime filled areas. To wrap things up the hometown/smalltown news is Hannah’s dream come true because she was able to find a newspaper with a “Police Beat” section, aka-the treasure of the news.
