SAN FRANCISCO-(BUSINESS WIRE)–The neighborhood network, Nextdoor (NYSE:KIND), is launching a new podcast series called, Where kindness liveswith the aim of inspiring, challenging and informing our global neighbors while making kindness contagious.
“Where kindness lives speaks with inspiring minds from all over the world to offer listeners useful and simple tips for cultivating kindness in their local communities. Whether it’s an author, businessman, chef or singer, all of our guests have personal stories and experiences to share, which has made them redouble the kindness and care,” said Sarah Friar, CEO of Nextdoor. “Our research has shown that small acts of kindness towards neighbors improve mental health and well-being. Neighbors regularly perform small acts of kindness that, until now, often go unnoticed outside their neighborhood. We are very happy to share the personal stories and experiences of our guests and inspire others to be kinder in their everyday lives.”
The first five episodes of Where kindness lives were produced in Australia and most listeners come from the US, UK, Australia and Canada. With themes of global kindness, loneliness and how we can care for ourselves and each other, the podcast has built an organic listener base around the world and is now in the top 20% of podcasts in the world.
Hosted by a native New Yorker Jennie Sagerhead of Nextdoor Australia and former producer at MTV, National Geographic and Discovery, Where kindness lives chats with much-loved personalities and world-renowned names about what kindness means to them and how to drive positive change. The podcast also touches on the heartwarming stories we see on Nextdoor and shines a light on neighbors who selflessly show random acts of kindness.
“This is one of my favorite things about working at Nextdoor. We constantly hear about small acts of kindness from neighbors who look out for each other, and these acts really make a difference. Now we can bring these stories to a new global audience while helping them improve their own lives,” said podcast host Jennie Sager.
