#89 More Than A Name

2022-12-0548:56

"Again! Again!" Chris shares that he and Aria have a new thing - listening to The Santa Wrap by Rayvon. It's catchy, Neighbors... Google it. You can thank him later. After refusing to accept that 2023 is right around the corner, Deanna chooses instead to chat with us about the rise of TikTok and how #CookTok took off during the pandemic. She shares with us some outrageously fun food facts (did you know that one spaghetti noodle is called a spaghetto? It's true!). She then takes us to  Maryland to meet librarian-turned-TikTok star Rosie Grant who is cooking up some amazing food. ...But she's not getting the recipes she’s trying from any cookbooks you can buy in the store - nope! Wait until you hear where she gets them from, and how the nostalgic connection is helping her followers around the world remember that their loved ones are MORE THAN A NAME.  THE GOOD ALL AROUND US podcast is a celebration of uplifting stories and events from around the world.Each week, hosts Deanna and Chris Ley will alternate telling stories of good things that have happened to real people all across the globe.It's time to celebrate THE GOOD ALL AROUND US!It's time to HAPPY UP YOUR LIFE!Please make sure to subscribe so you can stay up to date on all new podcast releases....and if you like us, please give a 5-star rating in Apple Podcast or Podchaser.

After an amazing week of being out and about around town attending fantastic local events - like the SLSO Concert and the Great Forest Park Balloon Glow - Deanna and Chris encourage listeners get out and support local events in their own neck of the woods. Deanna also talks about how blessed she was to volunteer at a paintball event for a friend's non-profit whose mission is to encourage today's youth to take a "Leap of Faith". It's from there that she introduces us to a couple that was at the height of (what society views as) success all while their relationship was on the verge of destruction. She explains how they put an end to their lucrative careers to take a huge leap of faith to do something that everyone thought was crazy. You'll be inspired by this story of how an unwavering faith, a commitment to family, and a dedication to the serving others took Jason and Tay Brown FROM FIELD TO FIELD.THE GOOD ALL AROUND US podcast is a celebration of uplifting stories and events from around the world.Each week, hosts Deanna and Chris Ley will alternate telling stories of good things that have happened to real people all across the globe.It's time to celebrate THE GOOD ALL AROUND US!It's time to HAPPY UP YOUR LIFE!Please make sure to subscribe so you can stay up to date on all new podcast releases....and if you like us, please give a 5-star rating in Apple Podcast or Podchaser.

Chris and Deanna talk all about how useless knowledge comes in handy at trivia nights, not playing hooky to see a Cardinals baseball game, Albert Pujols's quest to hit 700, slips, trips and falls in search of a latte, and the fact that black ants do bite.

Quite the variety of conversation between Deanna and Chris to start off this episode - from National Dog Day to being outnumbered, from pets receiving inheritances to our elderly car, from Chris's speed skating background and his alternate persona Super Sexy Park Ranger. Entertainment at its finest! From there, Chris shares all about the fascinating world of spelunking. You'll either want to join a "grotto" by the time he's finished or be like Deanna and decide never to go in another cave ever again. Then, to meet today's heroes, we travel to Perryville, Missouri where we learn how a group of local spelunkers exploring the Tom Moore Cave System made a shocking discovery. You'll be on the edge of your seat as Chris tells the harrowing tale of a rescue effort that has everyone marveling at how the other hero of this episode - Abby - is ONE TOUGH LITTLE GAL.THE GOOD ALL AROUND US podcast is a celebration of uplifting stories and events from around the world.Each week, hosts Deanna and Chris Ley will alternate telling stories of good things that have happened to real people all across the globe.It's time to celebrate THE GOOD ALL AROUND US!It's time to HAPPY UP YOUR LIFE!Please make sure to subscribe so you can stay up to date on all new podcast releases....and if you like us, please give a 5-star rating in Apple Podcast or Podchaser.

From there, Deanna takes us to East Hampton, New York where we meet two very special people. Robert Marshall and Anne Cooper-Menguy.

She gives Chris a hard time about his TikTok usage before chatting about their plans to continue her birthday celebration this weekend, as well as what her 5-0 had better look like. Then Chris takes us to Moss Point, Mississippi where we feel like we are right there with the three teenage girls whose night of fun with friends turns into a life-threatening emergency in a heartbeat.

Be prepared to be WOWed with how this episode's hero - Corian Evans - comes to the rescue in the most amazing of ways. It's because of him that EVERYBODY MADE IT OUT.

Deanna has Chris share with listeners how he injured his rotator cuff this week. He uses the opportunity to give a shout-out to the medical staff at DePaul Hospital's ER. From there, Deanna talks about their love for survival shows which leads to a discussion about their new obsession, Alone. Their chat about how the contestants of that show protect themselves against the forces of nature and wild animals, like bears, leads right into this week's story. Buckle up, because the format of how Deanna tells this story is a first, and it's entertainment at its finest. Play along with them by "tuning in to Channel 71 of TGHTV for an exclusive interview" where we get to hear the harrowing tale of how conservation biologist Adam Warwick threw caution to the wind - risking everything - to save a black bear in a life-threatening situation.  THE GOOD ALL AROUND US podcast is a celebration of uplifting stories and events from around the world.Each week, hosts Deanna and Chris Ley will alternate telling stories of good things that have happened to real people all across the globe.It's time to celebrate THE GOOD ALL AROUND US!It's time to HAPPY UP YOUR LIFE!Please make sure to subscribe so you can stay up to date on all new podcast releases....and if you like us, please give a 5-star rating in Apple Podcast or Podchaser.

Deanna and Chris start off the episode by wishing their good friend (and the originator of "THE GOOD 'HOOD"), Alison Hillman, a very happy #AliGras! Chris shares how he had a guys' night out at the Missouri History Museum at a cool event celebrating a local rock radio station's 55th year on the air. Chris then takes us to Belleville, New Jersey where we are taken back in time to learn of a story so amazing that listeners will be overcome with emotion to hear how Barnet Yudin saying "yes" over 80 years ago sparked a chain of events that forever changed the Penzias' family tree. It's in the intricacies of how everything came together - and the ripple effect it caused - that will inspire you to see how giving without expecting anything in return was because HE ALWAYS WANTED TO HELP.
