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’s episode guest is Clark Canez! Clark is an improviser in Los Angeles. You can see him around the indie scene with teams RavenPuff, Gosh Guys, And Hempire Strikes back. Clark and I catch up and talk all about:

Yet another baby that was born on an airplane! This baby now gets free flights for life from Jet Airways.

There are a few different groups around the country that do “Re-Cycling”, i.e. fixing up old, donated bicycles and gifting them to children. I found one in Illinois that’s been around since 1950. They are currently looking for a new home after being forced out of their rental space.

The Brooklyn Community Bail Fund is a non-profit that works to bail out those who can’t afford to pay their pre-trail bonds. Often people are put in jail simply because they can’t afford fines. This means that non-violent and presumably innocent people are stuck behind bars. Brooklyn Bail Community Bail Fund raises the funds to bail people out, provides support through case management, and advocates for systematic reform.  They are awesome. Period.

The Institute for Sustainability, Energy and Environment at the University of Illinois has figured out how to recycle Styrofoam in a way that is actually economically sustainable.

Clark is from Covina and a few different representatives from Home Depots nearby just repainted a non-profit teen center. The teen center was started by the Man-E Moreno Foundation. The foundation put together by the family members of Manny Moreno, a victim of a random act of violence, in an effort to provide the community with guidance for at risk youth.

Animal Corner features a little Terrier that was finally adopted into a home after spending 7 years in an animal shelter!

Good News!
