This podcast is a community of hope in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Dr. Colleen Batchelder, Founder and Executive Director of LOUD Summit, interviews a variety of people from various faith and nonfaith backgrounds and asks them one question: How are you personally finding hope right now?
30 Days of Hope poses the same question to faith leaders, professors, spiritualists, parents, students, and skeptics, and each one inspires listeners with their stories, their perspectives, and their gifts of hope.
