End of the Old Year and beginning of the New Year year update
Thinking Outside of the Box.
This week we talk about some exciting new directions that were going here at T double Oh! TB (Thinking Outside of the Box,) and extend an invitation to you, dear listener, to participate!
Again I thank you for being here, it’s you, that inspires each and every episode of this show. We strive to come up with material that challenges you and challenges me to open up and consider new ways of thinking and new avenues for solving problems.
In the past we’ve done shows on the on the Science of Happiness on the Science Behind the Power of Beliefs, and how a belief can actually change reality. Not just yours, but mine and everybody’s.
We also have had guests emphasizing Holistic Health and “out-of-the-box” ways of thinking of nutrition, exercise and health practices.
As I said, this episode is an end of the year wrapup. In this show we will be repeating a conversation I had with Kristan Mico on the Transformative Power of Yoga and I’m excited to talk about some new directions for thinking outside the box.
350million people subscribe to podcasts on iTunes and listen on their portable devices.
I will be giving both my KRFY radio listeners and my Internet audience links to or tips on where to find podcast aggregators, news aggregators and what the heck is an aggregator anyway. And why would you kind listener, be interested in what the heck an aggregator is?
This is a good place to start, I’ve mentioned in the past that choosing our content on the radio, on TV and on the Internet is something that it behooves us to do wisely. We are in the age of “media oversaturation” Brian Swimme in his book the Hidden Heart of the Universe points out that each and every day we are subjected to more than 10,000 either direct or subliminal marketing messages. (link http://www.amazon.com/The-Hidden-Heart-Cosmos-Humanity/dp/1570752818/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top) It could be as blatant as a TV ad or as subtle as the logo on your tennis shoes or somebody’s hat, or on that box that has your cereal in it.
As promised, I have some information on how to get more Quality content into your already time-limited day. I mentioned iTunes and I mentioned Stitcher Radio, here’s couple quick ups and downs about both.
iTunes is great if you have iTunes installed on your computer and on your devices. If you’re not buying any music or paid for content you do not need to give Apple any of your credit card information you just need to download the iTunes application. Again the same holds true if you have a smart phone or tablet that is not an Apple product. Most Apple products come with iTunes installed on it.
Assuming you have iTunes installed ( in a moment I will discuss an option that doesn’t require iTunes ) you need only go to the iTunes store and look under podcasts. From there you can search by category, keywords, or just search for any particular podcast or artist you happen to be looking for. From the results you’ll be given a choice of choosing one or choosing more than one or you can subscribe and receive automatic updates whenever a new episode is published.
Okay now a little plug from yours truly and T double Oh! TB. While you’re there, look me up, either Ken Casler or look up Thinking Outside of the Box you will find our podcasts there, and we will be tickled pink if you subscribe. It’s 100% free, and we will be 200% totally grateful (plus the tickled pink part). Thank you! Listen to a few and give us a good rating and we will be “tickled out of the park”!
So if you’re not wanting to have iTunes on your computer and being subject to Apple’s rules, there are other options and I’ll mention just one right now.
That is Stitcher Radio. They have an app that will go either on your computer, or on any tablet or smart phone you might have.
You will find Stitcher is a little different; you can search and find any podcast (even ones not in iTunes). In a way this is better because you have a wider variety to choose from, and you can search by category or preference or keywords. Another way Stitcher is different is it will only present the most recent episode. You cannot download past episodes. Another feature is if you stop listening in the middle of a podcast, whenever you come back to that podcast it will take up where you left off. You can tell sticher to keep some playlists downloaded on your device so you can listen even when you do not have an internet connection.
firstname.lastname@example.org will put you in touch.
Well that does it for another edition of thinking outside of the box, I want to give a big thank you to radio station KRFY for technical and moral support also to Peter Lucht for composing and playing our theme music. Today you also heard a little bit of guitar music by yours truly.
Also a big thank you to Cheri Calvert of chericalvert.com for her web design magic. As always, consult your healthcare professional before making any lifestyle changes. And the views expressed here are not necessarily the views of our guests, of radio station KRFY or of Bountiful Productions. I’m your host Ken Casler saying — thanks again for tuning in we look forward to more mind expanding and sometimes and sometimes mind boggling adventures as we move into a new year on Thinking Outside of the Box.
