Episode 12: Half-Full or Half-Empty?

The Texas Optimism Project and Frost Bank are proud to share the twelfth episode of Good Newscast, a podcast about good news in the world.

At the halfway point of the year, Owen, Andrew and Arely seek out stories that are good news in the making. These works in progress give us hope—from capping the price of insulin, to funding state parks, to coming to terms with an old Austin ordinance to racially divide the city.

Optimism can change lives, but it doesn’t always come easy. Join hosts Owen Egerton, Arely Silva and Andrew Roush as they dive headfirst into exploring the power of perspective and unlikely stories of optimism. New episodes are published every other week.
