  1. It’s so refreshing after a long day of work to tune in to such an uplifting show! Bronwyn and her guests shed such a positive light on our capital city. They are constantly exploring and exemplifying all the great artistic and cultural events happening in downtown Providence. I have had the pleasure of befriending Bronwyn and her husband Richard over the last few years. It is a pleasure to support such a great show. I encourage all of my friends and fellow Rhose Islanders to do the same!

    P. S. Loved hearing Rev’s laughter in the background!
