Sharon does a great job finding and sport lighting local community members who are truly “doing good.” I find this podcast to be insightful, inspiring, and above all giving hope to is listening in these stressful and uncertain times. Keep up the great “good” work, Sharon!
Do Good, Be Good is an interview show that finds very interesting people who "do good" and asks them about what they do. Sharon finds such a variety of people who do good in so many ways from coffee in Nepal to an artificial pancreas. I like that the show is in the 20-25 minute range so that I can listen while I do the mindless odds and ends of daily life, or eat lunch. It doesn't require a large commitment of time unless you're going to binge-listen to an entire season! You should do that, however, if you are just joining her as a listener. Sharon is warm and friendly and conveys a true interest in the speaker. Give her a listen!
