My wife Jessica and I believe that joy can be found everywhere. It just needs to be discovered. We created the Joy Sandwich Podcast to wholeheartedly mine and cultivate and express that joy—even when we’re feeling gloomy and depressed.

On the show, we cover a variety of joyful things, from banned books and childlike wonder to space and learning new things.

Jessica and I are real-life partners and best friends. We had a book-themed wedding. In fact, we live book-themed lives. We love, love, love books.

We also love movies and comic books and language and all the joy that is to be gleaned in this sometimes bonkers pale blue dot we live on.
