Season Two Trailer


Season Two Trailer

In Season Two, Farm Sanctuary CEO, Megan Watkins, encourages us to be helpers; Hint CEO, Kara Goldin, reminds us that even our most confounding challenges make sense in the end; and social justice comedian, Negin Farsad, shares how she uses comedy to shatter stereotypes. We’ll also go deep with “Death, Sex & Money” Host, Anna Sale; New York Times Columnist, Ron Lieber; TV Executive and Author, Bill Flanagan, and more.

Rob Markman

How does hip hop artist and media executive, Rob Markman, exceed expectation, over-perform and over-deliver in the middle of a global pandemic? With steady-handed, pragmatic optimism, grace and humility — plus a few, well-placed and timed words of encouragement. Listen up.

Giving Thanks

As we pause to count our blessings and our tears, let us remember and reach out to the frail forms fainting at the door —  to those who may need our kindness, our generosity, or our help the most. They may be right down the street. They may be right next door. Or they may be right beside you.

Because, Mister Rogers reminds us, “All of us, at some time or another need help. Whether we’re giving or receiving, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That’s what connects us as neighbors.”

Craig Mullaney

Jason Walsmith

Singer, songwriter, photographer, storyteller and Nadas front man, Jason Walsmith, takes us on a half-life journey from Des Moines to Beijing and back with a guitar, a camera, and one simple word that’s gotten him through all the flat tires, flat notes, and flat beers along the way.

Whitney Matheson


Whitney Matheson

Blogging Legend, Newsletter Pioneer & Comic Book Author, Whitney Matheson, shares her story from small-town USA to the pages of USA Today.

What set Whit apart then as now, is her guileless, unbridled enthusiasm for creativity in all its forms: art, books, movies, television. Her love of things is palpable, her fandom infectious. Whitney’s optimism and ambition is inspiring.

So it was only natural that we would kick off this, our premiere season of “Friends & Neighbors” with Whitney; she’s been encouraging me to do something like this for months.
