Well and Good was started out of a desire to help spread the word about stuff that's good for you. Or more specifically, an attempt to counter what felt like an overwhelming deluge of negativity flowing from social media, mainstream media, politics, world events, etc., with little focus on folks and organizations making a positive impact. There's no agenda other than to provide a platform to highlight "conversations for the curious".
The Well and Good Community is growing. A community comprised of guests, listeners, and other curious folks with something to share. Wouldn't it be cool to share conversation with other folks who come together without judgement to share, offer, contribute and receive information and feedback about subjects we could all learn and possibly benefit from while helping well-intentioned organizations, people and causes? Yes. It would. It is. Join us.
Are you someone with something to share? Do you represent an organization or cause trying to help or bring awareness to something that could use some light? Do you have a venue that might be interested in hosting a meetup or recording of a mobile episode of The Well and Good Podcast? Let's chat. Get in touch via the contact page.
Jay Smack is a guy who "invites smart people in to chat and steals their knowledge". But you, the listener are invited to steal right along with him just by listening and supporting the podcast. That catch is that you are then tasked with passing that knowledge along, if for no other reason than to spur conversation and stay curious.
A VCU grad, Jay's background is in broadcasting, audio post-production, voiceover and music.
