In a time when we desperately need to witness some good in the world, Audible’s new Upstanders series aims to restore our faith in humanity.
Starbucks executive chairman Howard Schultz and former Washington Post senior editor Rajiv Chandrasekaran have teamed up to identify upstanding American citizens and tell their stories. They define these “upstanders” as “ordinary people who are making extraordinary differences” (i.e., “the opposite of bystanders”). From college students to pastors to former inmates, the people profiled in Upstanders are living proof that anyone can make a positive change in others’ lives.
Actor Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Fantastic Four) narrates both Season 1 and Season 2, which Audible released for free today. You can listen to an exclusive clip from Season 1 below, featuring the story of a former NFL player who trains wounded veterans.
