Trevor Noah Lifting Spirits with Weekly Good News

By Mehr Sohal Comedian and television host, Trevor Noah, has started a ‘Daily Social Distancing Show’ on YouTube to keep all of us stuck at home smiling and informed. One specific segment of this new show that I find absolutely amazing is a weekly video on ‘This Week’s Good News’...very fitting with the ‘The Joyful Peach’.
