The Texas Optimism Project and Frost Bank’s Opt for Optimism initiative are proud to share episode 24 of Good Newscast, a podcast about good things in the world.

Season 1 of the podcast explored optimism in the headlines, but season 2 welcomes a different format and new host. Chelsea Francis, interviewed by the Texas Optimism Project in 2018, joins Owen Egerton and Andrew Roush in the Good News roster. Every other week, these three will examine optimism as it impacts different themes in daily life.

Episode 24 kicks off 2020 with a discussion around technology and the inspiring ways it connects us with others. New episodes of Good Newscast are published every month.
