4 episodes

Toronto-based comics, writers, and optimist-wannabes, Kate Barron and Sara Starkman have partnered to create a well-being podcast...without all the BS.

As world-class cynics feeling bogged down by negative news, they attempt to highlight the good stuff, surprising each other with positive news stories, academic studies and good deeds that the other hasn't yet heard.

...And then in true, "Kate and Sara" fashion, slowly dissect each other's attempts and articles through a realistic and honest lens, unearthing a relatable and hilarious quality to digesting and spreading positive news.

Tune in for lots of laughter, absurdity and candid conversation about the struggle to stay positive and the importance of persisting.

A Positive Spin Podcast is all the feels without the fluff.

Great chics to hang out with!!!

I do so miss them between podcasts! Such a real life crazy mess! I listen in bed with earphones and my husband must wonder why I’m smiling and chuckling! I’d love to see them perform live. And I can’t help but ask ... what’s worse than ants in your pants!?! Oh ... one other thing! Kate your pronunciation of Pontiac Parisienne is a tad off LOL!
