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 we have Jessica Svendsgaard from the musical improv team Adele Dazeem.

We talk about:

A family whose truck went down in a flood and the strangers who saved their children’s lives.

We may be moving towards a less disposable economy! People are making more and buying less (outside of the US of course). There is some good news about product packaging!  And the company Braskem from Brazil is working towards creating a sustainable economy and researching renewable resources.

The fundraiser of the week is on indiegogo and puts forth the idea of collecting illegal guns from non-violent criminals in exchange for bail. This is being developed as a way to reduce violent crimes and get illegal firearms out of the streets.

Jessica is from Danville, CA and an art exhibition is opening up showcasing art from members of the Down Syndrome Connection.

Jessica loves birds and I have a great animal corner about a man who has created a retirement home for birds.
