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.  What's YOUR P.I.?

Please subscribe or Follow my podcast by clicking on the Subscribe or Follow button on my website or Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, iHeart Radio, Spotify,  or your favorite podcast platform.   This is a free podcast.

Enjoy listening to the many positive imprints from around the world.  What's YOUR P.I.?
