OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Longtime Fox News host Dana Perino has returned for the third season of her popular podcast, where she tells stories of bravery, heroics, and other tragedies.

Perino’s podcast, “Everything Will Be Okay,” comes from her 2021 bestselling book, “Everything Will Be Okay: Life Lessons for Young Women (From a Former Young Women).”

Perino, who also co-hosts the popular show “The Five,” kicked off Season 3 of her podcast by saying, “I believe that ultimately everything will always be OK, and I believe that there are ways we can revise our thinking, change the way we approach problems and make smarter decisions so we can be our most productive, healthy and serene selves.”

Perino used her first episode to speak with Ashley Brown, who — along with her husband, Ed Brown — launched the Selfless Love Foundation, a Florida-based organization that helps place children in the foster care system with adoptive parents.


“I always, always, always said I was going to pay back my blessing of being adopted and being given this gift of an incredible family,” said Brown, who was adopted and wanted to help children in need of finding a good home.

“It’s a crisis,” Brown said. “So there’s over 100,000 children in foster care right now that are waiting to be adopted. Every single year there’s over 20,000 children that age out of foster care, and almost half of them become homeless within the first two years.”

Brown noted that once a child turns 18, they have “aged out” of foster care.

Brown’s Harbor in Pembroke Pines, Florida, provides a home where 18 to 23-year-olds can learn life skills and become financially independent, giving them a better chance for success moving forward.


“It is the most rewarding feeling on the planet. I pinch myself that I get to be a part of this,” Brown said of her work with foster children, saying it has given her and her husband a very big family.

Perino also co-hosts the hit show “The Five,” which has continued to dominate the cable news ratings.

Fox News dominated in the January cable news ratings, drawing more viewers, on average, than both CNN and MSNBC combined. Jesse Watters was part of two shows — The Five and Jesse Watters Primetime — that were in the top 5 for viewership in January.


“Fox News still led in total day viewers, averaging 1.35 million viewers, which was down 4% from the same month a year earlier. MSNBC averaged 703,000, up 7%, while CNN posted 524,000, up 7%. In the 25-54 demo, Fox News averaged 173,000, down 23%, while CNN was up 7% with 107,000 and MSNBC rose 5% to 78,000,” Deadline reported.
