Love it

Chris and Deanna I absolutely love your podcast. I went into it with little knowledge of what I was about to embark on. I could listen to a full show of your banter. Then for you to take us on a journey across the world with this beautiful story of love with bits of history along the way. Carrie and I are going to make this a weekly tradition.

My happy time

True confession. I thought I had been following Chris and Deanna on this podcast. I listened to each and every episode (just got caught up again!) I could never find where to write a review. Well, that’s because I was NOT following them. Oops. I am not so tech savvy. Now I am! With all the craziness in the world right now, we all need a place to go to feel good. Mine is walking with my dog. Usually I am making phone calls and answering emails as well. I’ve started making sure that on some of my walks I listen to The Good All Around Us. The combination of hearing Chris and Deanna interact (talk about relationship goals, people!), hearing about others who do wonderful things and being outside in nature is a perfect combination to raise my mood. Thanks for doing this, guys!

Great stories every week!

There are a few podcasts where I anxiously await for new episodes and this one is on the top of my list! We need more Good stories in our lives. And, I've learned along the way and will search wikipedia (nod to Chris, just joking) and the interwebs to learn more about the people featured. Chris and Deanna's banter is wonderful. Thank you for spreading the good!
