Great app but need more positive and inspiring podcasts

Guys please, what we need after 2020 is some positive stories, podcasts that people actually want to hear i.e. inspiring, motivational and generally good vibes rather than a season about robbery...

It’s a shame!

I really want to listen to these podcasts but not the titles that was on offer. There needs to be some uplifting happy stories to listen to.
