Refreshing Look at Those Working for Others

The old saying “if it bleeds, it leads” is just as true today as it’s ever been, which is why a podcast like Goodniks is a welcome reprieve from the constant flow of negativity. Goodniks takes the spotlight off of those who deal in dirty deeds and focuses instead on people who have a firm devotion to improving the world around them. Instead of painting everything with rose colored glasses, Goodniks squares up to many of the challenges, frustrations and successes of those who choose to do good work.
