A particularly tough year has led many people to actively seek out more uplifting stories to balance out the onslaught of negativity.
Tressa Glover, of Mt. Lebanon, certainly felt that way as the COVID-19 pandemic upended our lives. A staple of the Pittsburgh acting community for a long time, she happened to be looking for a new creative pursuit. That desire wound up dovetailing nicely with her goal of raising the spirits of Western Pennsylvanians with content that aims to inspire.
Exactly a year ago Wednesday, she put out the first episode of “Yinz are Good,” a biweekly podcast that highlights a Pittsburgh resident, business or organization that has touched the lives of others in a positive way.
“I am trying to get the good stuff that’s going on out there to everybody,” Ms. Glover told the Post-Gazette. “Especially over the last year and a half, we’re inundated more with the bad and the negative. It’s easy to forget all the good people that there are and all the good deeds people are doing for each other, big and small.”
