About me and my podcast

Hello!  I am Catherine Praiswater and I am your host.

I am philosophical but also sentimental.  Growing up, life was spent in the outdoors camping, hiking, backpacking, traveling, fishing and singing songs around the campfire.  Often times my family and I were alone in the wilderness, except for the wildlife.  My parents told both true and imaginative stories which taught us children about life.  As a result, I enjoy telling stories and listening to them. 

My husband and I meet many people all over the world who share with us their positive actions.  Join me in listening to these achievements and perhaps reflect on your own positive imprint.

My podcast differs than most in that when I am able I will record conversations on-site.  I carry my recording equipment with me so I can capture surrounding sounds.  As you listen to some of the dialog exchange you can hear resonances of bird calls, ocean surf, airport announcements, animal calls, etc.  Many episodes are also recorded in my sound studio.

Your friends, your neighbors, your colleagues, your family, and people you don't know influence society.  These are their stories, their positive imprints.  What's your P.I.?
