The Best...

I’ve found Frank Blake and his Crazy Good Turns podcast to be a much needed palate cleanser in these days of such uncertainty. Frank has a way of finding the people, causes, and topics that are positive and inspiring. I find it so refreshing to listen these stories of good people doing good deeds. It inspires me to find more ways to help out others.
