'The Art of Kindness' podcast produced in Norwalk resonates with people around the world

Random Acts of Kindness Week marked the perfect time to tune in to a local kindness podcast produced in Norwalk that is gaining global popularity.
Every week, Robert Peterpaul shares kindness with the world through his "Art of Kindness" podcast.
"In the middle of the pandemic, I woke up and I was like the art of kindness, it would be a great way to put some positive news out there and sort of combat all the other stuff," said Peterpaul.
After two years, he says his podcast, recorded at Factory Underground in Norwalk, is now in the top 3% in the world.
And he's had some pretty big guests.
"Our 100th episode, we recorded right here at Factory Underground with the one and only Carol Burnett," said Peterpaul.
Peterpaul says one of the inspirations for his podcast is his brother, Thomas, who had cancer.
Thomas died when he was 11 on Sept. 11 at 9:11 p.m.
"I look at the clock every day at 9:11 a.m. or p.m. in some form and 11's kind of our lucky number now because he was a really special kid," said Peterpaul.
Peterpaul says he went to Washington and eventually formed a nonprofit to honor his brother that helps kids with cancer.
Peterpaul says if he reaches even one person through his podcast, it can make all the difference.
"Ultimately, I really hope it inspires people to choose love over fear in any moment of their day," said Peterpaul.
The Art of Kindness comes out on Mondays. You can find it anywhere you listen to podcasts or here on YouTube.
