In 2013, Nate Goldman started a small online project documenting ordinary moments of kindness in the Greater Boston area. He posted it to Tumblr, and the series took off.

In seven years, Kind World has grown from an audio experiment to an award-winning podcast and radio series. Listen in as five Kind World producers discuss the evolution of the show, what it was like to work on a show about kindness and compassion, and how working for Kind World changed them.
