Things have been really intense these past few weeks in Philadelphia, and everywhere. With all events canceled, and the world very much in need of happy news, Kristen knew just where to turn.

This episode features Ronnie Polaneczky, the editor and creator of The UpSide, a section in the Philadelphia Inquirer that focuses on positive news. Ronnie highlights some of her favorite stories over the past year while working on The UpSide. She talks about the kinds of stories that she looks for, the section’s special edition features, life during the coronavirus pandemic and lots more.

Find The UpSide in every Sunday edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer, and online anytime HERE. Beginning this week, look for the UpSide on Thursdays too! E-mail story ideas to or tweet @RonniePhilly.
