Episode 28: Education is a Form of Progress


In the latest episode of Good Newscast our hosts Owen, Chelsea, and Andrew discuss finding hope, empathy, and perspective from historically underrepresented voices.

We hear from guests Katrina Brooks, the owner of Black Pearl Books, and Roberto and Lorena Germán, the founders of the Multicultural Classroom on the importance of education and how personal growth leads to optimism.

Andrew’s historical perspective cites Thomas Paine’s “Crisis” to  illustrate how progress, even from crises, is inherently optimistic.
