Goodniks

Goodniks

Goodniks is an audio project exploring the journey and meaning of doing good in the world — for people who do good or are just thinking about it. As we follow along the journey of these Goodniks, we dig into who and what inspired them, what keeps them up at night, their sacrifices, their rewards, their failures, and what it means for their relationships. What does it really mean to do good over the course of a life, or a moment, or a season?

Two…you’ll just have to listen to find out. Listen in podcast form wherever you listen to podcasts: https://pod.link/1615577319 For more information visit goodniks.org

Episode 2 focuses on what has inspired our Goodniks — the moments that have really stuck with them, propelled them into the work they do, or shifted their view of the world. Sometimes, those moments came in the form of bearing witness; sometimes, they came from an experience guided by a mentor. Either way, these experiences helped shape our Goodniks' journeys.
