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 weeks episode features brother and sister duo Mei and Willy Ratz! Mei is an artist, a photographer, and a conversation and experience engineer. Willy is also a photographer, a dope mountain biker, and adventurer. Possibly soon to be helicopter pilot? The future will tell.

This week we talk about a ton!

  • sidewalk chalk art festival in San Bernadino that donated all of the proceeds to furthering art programs and education in the community.
  • A global movement of former neo-Nazis who are helping others renounce extremism.
  • group of strangers that bought a car for a young man who was walking to work each day.
  • A police officer that adopted two children after investigating their child abuse case
  • Mei and Willy were just on a crazy world wide trip, one of their mutual favorite places was Penang, Malaysia and so for hometown news I focused on the story of social worker Ah Banand the senior center he started by himself called Peace and Harmony.
  • Animal corner features the Cat Island in Penang, and the timeliest patriotic animal news of a Bald Eagle who was rescued two days before the 4th of July.
