Focusing in on Kindness

With our 24 hours news cycle, it’s easy to get caught up in the crisis of the day. While all that is going on, however, individuals everywhere are making a difference by performing acts of kindness that will never make it into a newscast. During this hour of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with a handful of Iowans touched by remarkable acts of kindness in 2015.

During this hour we hear from LaTasha DeLoach, a social worker and member of the Iowa City School Board, as well as Jill Pruetz, a Walvoord Professor of Liberal Arts and Sciences specializing in biological anthropology at Iowa State University. Angie Hansen, a cancer survivor and mother of five, joins the show to end the hour.
