The Texas Optimism Project and Frost Bank are proud to share episode 17 of Good Newscast, a podcast about good news in the world.

So what do you get when you combine Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, chicken sandwiches, and a typewriter that used to work for Penthouse magazine? Well, it’s nothing short of amazing. Special guest Jodi Egerton from Typewriter Rodeo joins the discussion and conjures spontaneous poetry behind our favorite stories of optimism.
