From climate change to impeachment, the traditional news media has a lot on its plate and hasn't been able to highlight the small victories that have been unfolding over the past year. To give you a break from your regularly scheduled Doom and Gloom, we have decided to focus on some of the good things happening in the world today. To kick off your 2020, we asked several of our researchers to go out into the world found stories and find case studies that made them smile. From peace talks in Africa to a deer the size of a puppy, here's our attempt to make your day a little brighter.
Host: Balthazar Merrin
