JoyBinge Episode 31: Season 2 Announcement



23 October 2019 0 comments

Hi and welcome to JoyBinge! I am Kimmy and I am Sinow, and we want to celebrate that we are coming back from the much needed break and starting the second season on Nov 5th! We are so ready to binge on some joy!

Over the last year or so, we have covered lots of stories ranging from space, drugs, poverty, runaway emus, bags of milk, massive cheesecakes, you get the idea. We look for articles that celebrate the good being done in tough situations as well as some silly ones to help lighten the mood. 

We’ve learned a lot and grown as people and podcasters. Running a podcast takes a lot of time and knowledge that I frankly didn’t have. But I am so thankful for this experience! Learning new skills has been invaluable but more than that, finding the good that’s happening has opened my eyes to so many amazing people and progress that I wouldn’t have seen and appreciated otherwise. 

So on to the second season! We wanted to change things up a bit and make the episodes easier to digest. There are so many good stories to talk about, but we packed the episodes too full of information. So this season we are going to focus on a new approach to show you some good stuff without going overboard. Here are the changes we are making:

Changes(size 20)

Stories and Hometowns

  • Instead of talking about 4 different stories in each episode, we are going to pick one main story and one hometown
  • We will swap sharing a hometown each episode
  • Whoever has the hometown that episode, the other person will cover the main story
  • Episodes *should be* shorter, easier to digest, and allow us more time to talk about the stories without rushing

Daily JoyBinges

  • In case you didn’t know, we’ve been posting articles that brought us joy on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, Monday through Friday
  • That became much more time consuming than anticipated so we are backing down to posting on Mondays and Fridays
  • I’m trying to get better about retweeting stories on Twitter during the week
  • Please share with us stories you find that bring you joy!

Blog Posts

  • Another “in case you didn’t know,” we make a blog post for each episode we post
  • That way you can find the links to the articles we cover and anything else we mention in the episodes
  • You can find it at

We want to make sure this is a good source for you to find good news happening in the week! There are other ideas we are toying with so when those are decided upon and put into action, we will announce them in the episodes as well as on social media. 

Thanks for listening and we can’t wait for the new season! If you have stories of good people doing good things in your neighborhood or anywhere, send them to us! We’ve got an email, or tweet at us @joybingepodcast or visit our Facebook page and Instagram account. GO BINGE ON SOME JOY!


The music for this podcast is “Industrious Ferret,” “Carpe Diem,” “Porch Swing Days – Faster,” & “Sunshine” all by Kevin MacLeod. Thanks for listening and have a great week!
