This American Life

http://www.thisamericanlife.org

This American Life is a weekly public radio show broadcast on more than 500 stations to about 1.8 million listeners. There's a theme to each episode, and a variety of stories on that theme. It's mostly true stories of everyday people, though not always. There's lots more to the show, but it's sort of hard to describe

Eflixir

http://eflixir.com

Curating thousands of positive Hollywood films, eflixir is the only platform online to offer viewers an extensive selection of narrative and documentary films that are tailored to their desire for quality uplifting content.  Each film is linked to thematically related non-profits so that the audience can immediately activate the social-good impulse that the films inspire.  Additionally, a percentage of every streaming fee is donated to eflixir's non-profit cause partner so that viewers are making a difference simply by watching the films that they would be paying the same price for elsewhere.  After viewing and acting, members are able to discuss the films and/or related causes with a community of likeminded individuals who are similarly interested in positive entertainment and social good. Don’t just watch the world, Change the world!
