In this episode, we talk with Dr. Jen Morgan about pelvic PT, collaboration, and the cash-based model. Dr. Jen Morgan is the owner of Centrality Physical Therapy and Wellness. She graduated from A.T. Still University with a doctoral degree in physical therapy and an intense passion for helping individuals optimize their pelvic health & live their best lives! From incontinence of any kind, pelvic pain, or pregnancy & postpartum clients, she loves treating it. She has experience treating patients using a blend of orthopedic, pelvic, visceral, and neural manipulation techniques. With this knowledge, Jen spends time out of the clinic as a TA for the Herman and Wallace Institute & is a TA candidate for the Barral Institute. Jen has a history of establishing & growing successful pelvic health programs for both hospital outpatient and outpatient orthopedic physical therapy clinics, but has switched to a cash-based PT model; with her most recent adventure of re-locating her cash-based practice to her new home state, Connecticut. Prior to becoming a physical therapist, Jen taught yoga for almost a decade and focused her time on teaching yoga teachers the intricate relationships of human anatomy & the nervous system. When not working, you can find Jen doing yoga or lifting, baking, binge-watching The Office or Schitt's Creek with her husband and pup. @doc_jenmorganwww.centralitywellness.comSubscribe, download, and rate!Follow @dpt.stephwww.dptsteph.com

How did your body respond to the last carb heavy dinner you had? Does eating a high calorie meal affect you worse than a lower calorie, higher carb meal? Herman Pontzer, an evolutionary biologist, did a research study on a hunter gatherer community called Hazda in Tanzania, to learn about energy expenditure. What he's discovered flips everything you thought you knew about calories and carbs upside down. He's joining Tom to expose why the data shows that carbs in a calorie controlled environment do not matter. Meaning, it is possible to theoretically go on a Twinkie diet (please don't) and still lose weight when calories are adhered to.

Jason O'Toole's family has been in law enforcement for generations. While he made his name in the punk/hardcore scene in bands like Life's Blood, his professional career eventually moved towards the same path as his uncles and grandfather before him. Spending time living in the South, he eventually returned to the Northeast, settling in New England and working as an adult protective investigator while pursuing a second career as a writer and poet. In our conversation we talk about his drive to help people, what interests him from a creative perspective and how your family legacy can influence your path (and why it doesn't always have to).

Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction can cause SO many problems for pregnant women and anyone who's ever had a baby). Today we're learing what it is and what we can do help it! Today's guest is Ashlie Crewe Campitella. She attended Gannon University where she received her Bachelor's in Psychology and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degrees. She then began her specialized training in pelvic health physical therapy. While treating patients and training in pelvic floor therapy, she also attended courses regarding pain neuroscience, finding her passion in combining the knowledge from her pelvic health courses with the neuroscience of persistent pain conditions. She has developed pelvic floor programs in several of her company's clinics and currently treats patients of all genders with pelvic health concerns, while providing mentorship to other pelvic floor therapists in her company, and educating her community about pelvic health rehab. She achieved her Board Certification as a Women's Health Specialist in 2017 and is also a member of the International Pelvic Pain Society as well as the Global Pelvic Health Alliance. Additionally she has served as a teaching assistant in various Herman and Wallace classes, and serves as adjunct faculty for Lebanon Valley College. She is developing curriculum for her company to make inclusive and affirming pelvic health education accessible to clinicians within the large orthopedic physical therapy company she works for. Primarily, she treats in central Pennsylvania, traveling to several clinics in the area to mentor therapists and consult with patients. She is experienced in treating pelvic pain conditions, urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, post-operative gender-affirmation conditions, constipation, pediatric pelvic floor conditions, and prenatal and postpartum conditions. She is passionate about the multidisciplinary care of persistent pain conditions, and eager to work with experts in all fields of study to better help her patients have painfree and fulfilling lives.

In this episode, guest host Dr. Julia Herman, an AABP member on staff at National Cattleman's Beef Association, a contractor to the Beef Check-Off, and the chair of the AABP Animal Welfare Committee, is joined by Dr. Lily Edwards-Callaway to discuss cattle well-being. Dr. Herman works with the Beef Quality Assurance program. Dr. Edwards-Callaway is an associate professor at Colorado State University and studies livestock behavior and welfare. She gives a broad definition of animal welfare as looking at both the physical and mental state of the animal. They discuss the five freedoms that are necessary for good welfare programs and the limitations of them. One such limitation is the fact that we need to evaluate the mental state of the animal and the addition of supporting positive experiences for the animal. Too often we evaluate welfare by counting negative experiences versus supporting and advancing positive experiences. Examples discussed include social opportunities such as socially housed dairy calves, measuring playing behavior, providing enrichment opportunities such as cow brushes or balls, and providing rewarding human-animal interaction such as low-stress cattle handling. Dr. Edwards-Callaway also discusses Fraser's three circles of animal welfare and how they overlap. These circles are biological functioning, effective states, and natural living. This allows us to let the cow tell us what animal welfare means to them and what is important to them. Improving animal welfare is a team effort that requires the veterinarian, producer, employees, nutritionist, and others to work together and listen to what the cow is telling us. Veterinarians play a critical role in leading this discussion for on-farm implementation of good animal welfare practices. They advise veterinarians to be open to conversations from the public about animal welfare because when someone asks us a question it does not mean they are questioning what we do. Relevant links:1.

R&SRNR_144 – “THE COMPLETE HIT SINGLES HISTORY OF HERMAN'S HERMITS” This episode spotlights the complete hit singles history of one of the most popular groups of the 1960s “British Invasion.” In fact, Billboard Magazine ranked these performers the “number one U.S. singles act of 1965” – with the Beatles placing number two. No, it wasn't the Dave Clark Five, Rolling Stones, Animals, or the Kinks. The correct answer is Herman's Hermits, a group whose signature sound comprised simple melodies and instrumentation combined with romantic lyrics intended to appeal to younger female teenagers, especially those who were living in the United States. We'll cover Herman's Hermits' complete hit singles discography, and the original versions of songs they were inspired to re-record in their own distinctive style. Plus, their major motion pictures – one of which was based on and took its title from a Herman's Hermits trademark tune. As always, our resident Rockologist, Ken Deutsch, will be along with his customary collection of fascinating factoids. Ken also will join Radio Dave as we present more of the greatest rock and roll stories on record. Hear it all here.
Rituals transform how we live, work, and create, but closer to home, they can do something much greater: encourage self-love. For conscious creators like Matthew Herman, this idea is especially prevalent—enter Boy Smells. Co-founded in late 2015 with his partner David Kien, Matthew and the team have worked diligently to create a gender-inclusive lifestyle brand that, in their words, encourages people to “make loving your identity a daily ritual.” With products ranging from candles to fragrances to intimates, Boy Smells aptly puts the personal back in personal care routine. While much of Boy Smells' journey is reminiscent of Matthew's personal experiences, the brand has embraced its community every step of the way. In this interview, Matthew shared more about his journey from fashion to fragrance, the ins and outs of building a genderful brand, and what he's learned about slowing down—and living an abundant life. This episode also opens with a story by Julianne Fraser. A transcript of this episode is also available on our website: https://www.slowstoriespodcast.com/community/slow-stories-podcast-show-notes-matthew-herman-boy-smells.
One of the aspects of this show prior to changing direction with the episodes that I missed the most was client spotlights. In similar fashion to what I did with the last several guests, the next four episodes will be featuring some of our RevFit rockstars and highlighting their experiences since joining here. First up is a family we have had a huge pleasure working with since they started early last year. The Herman family's story actually begins with their oldest son, Charlie, and would soon evolve into working with his mother, Rachel, and his brother and sister, Joey and Abby, respectively. Tune in to hear directly from Rachel what that journey would be like to date. I hope you enjoy.

Are all forms of meditation on the same playing field? Are some truly inadequate or even dangerous?

Guten abend meine freunde! Heute machen wir eine reise nach deutschland. Welche Seiten werden wir sehen? wen werden wir treffen? Wird Jon das lesen können? Ich denke, wir werden es herausfinden! Anyways, for those of you that don't speak German… Well you'll never know what we said there, and for those of you that do, Moody's German is rusty and we're sure Google's help in translating was probably off, so hopefully it wasn't too ridiculous. At any rate, today on the train we are back to our creepy series, and if you're remotely intuitive, you'll already know we are heading to the great country of Germany! The country that gave us some amazing inventions like the hole punch, the mp3, the coffee filter, and everyone's favorite...Fanta...and all the other crazy and cool shit they've given the world! All of that cool stuff aside, we are looking at some other stuff that Germany is giving to the world… Creepy shit! So without further ado, let's get into it! Let's start with a cryptid legend! First up we have the Nachtkrapp. The origins of the Nachtkrapp legends are still unknown, but a connection possibly exists to rook infestations in Central Europe. Already feared due to their black feathers and NoNscavenging diet, the mass gatherings quickly became an existential threat to farmers and gave rooks and crows their place in folklore as all-devouring monsters. Several versions of the Nachtkrapp exist. In most legends, the Nachtkrapp is described as a giant, nocturnal raven-like bird. The most popular (and hideous) of the legends claim that the Nachtkrapp leaves its hiding place at night to hunt. If it is seen by little children, it will abduct them. The giant bird then flies to its nest whereby it grossly devours the child by first ripping off their limbs and then picking out their heart. There are of course, other legends, in which the Nachtkrap will merely abduct children by placing them in his bag (how he holds this bag I do not yet know) and take them 'away'. There is also the Wütender Nachtkrapp (German, lit. Angry Night Raven). Despite its name, this appears to be a tamer version of the Nachtkrapp; instead of abducting children, it simply crows loudly and flutters its wings, until the children have been terrorized into silence. Then, there is the Guter Nachtkrapp (German, lit. Good Night Raven) This scary sumbitch is a benevolent version of the Nachtkrapp. This bird enters the children's room and gently sings them to sleep. Creepy shit for sure Let's stick with cryptid legends for a second. We're gonna throw the Aufhocker in here real quick too. The word Aufhocker literally means to 'lean upon'. It is a creature that is said to jump on the back or shoulders of lone wanderers at night, its attack instilling such horror in their victims that they collapse in fright. Although some myths state that the individual collapses not from fright but because once the Aufhocker attaches to a victim it grows dramatically in size/weight. The Aufhocker statue in Hildesheim Germany has depicted the Aufhocker as a human in shape. However the actual form and nature of this mythological creature is quite unclear. Interestingly, many stories apparently describe the Aufhocker as a shapeshifter, who may appear in the guise of a dog or a sad old lady (personally the sad old lady guise would be the scariest). However, the link with the dog shape-shifter is interesting because in Belgium there is a hell hound called the Kludde, whose modus operandi is remarkably similar to the Aufhocker, in that it stalks lonely roads at night, and jumps on the back of travellers ripping their throats out. However, there are other descriptions of the Aufhocker as a type of zombie (corporal undead), or kobold (type of Germanic imp) or as some type of vampire or werewolf. According to some reports the Aufhocker is "considered to be a very dangerous theriomorph that tears the throats out of humans. The connection to attacking victims in the throat is what links the aufhocker to vampirism." (A theriomorph is: a creature (usually a deity) capable of taking the form of an animal) According to myth, the aufhocker can not be killed. However, as the Aufhocker seems to have been blended with vampirism, lycanthropy and hell-hound mythology throughout the ages, it is said that they can be driven off by prayer, church bells, dawn or profuse swearing which should be no problem for us. Ok those sound pretty crazy. Let's go visit a creepy place now. The Bärenquell Brewery East Berlin Germany The fall of the Berlin Wall impacted Germany, Europe, and the world in oh so many different ways. It changed the entire world. But it also changed the world of one of our favorite things... beer. It was known among all of the Germans that the West side made much better beer than the East side. The construction of this humongous beer factory started in 1882 when the first building was constructed, the official residence of the brewery. Over the next forty years or so ten more buildings were added on the premises around the official residence. One was the administrative building with its tower in neo-Renaissance style, built in 1888. Three years later the bottle bearing building was added to the lo, sketched up and built in the Gothic revival architectural style. Just a year afterward (1902) another neo-Gothic wing was added to it. This one would function as a barrel factory and a storage room. In 1906 the main four-stories central brewery building was constructed in the same Gothic style with a castle-like appearance. After the central building was done, business was booming, and the brewery was doing nicely. What was left was to construct the other small but necessary facilities. Like a horse stable with a water tower in 1910, and the beer bottling cellar with a loading station that was used as a smaller warehouse as well. A couple more smaller warehouse buildings were built in 1920. As time moved forward some of the machinery needed repairs and the solution was very simple. They constructed a workshop building in 1927, this time diverging from the usual Gothic style the workshop was done in the style of Expressionism. The architects behind all of the buildings were Emil Holland, Robert Buntzel, and H.O.Obrikat. Sadly today only two of them remain standing, the official residence building from 1882 and the Renaissance administrative building of the Director that was added in 1888. Under Socialist rule, the Bärenquell Brewery had operated as a state-owned Volkseigenen enterprise. During the Treuhandanstalt programme of privatizing these businesses at the end of this era, the brewery was bought in 1990 by the Henniger brewery. The last Berliner Pilsener Spezial beer was bottled on 1st of April 1994 when Bärenquell beer production was moved to Kassel. Since the beer was no longer brewed in Berlin, they changed the name from Berliner Pilsener Spezial to Original Pilsener Spezial. The brand changed hands one more time. However, Bärenquell beer ceased to be brewed in 2009. After the brewery was closed some of the buildings remained to function as rental warehouses. Others were rented for different private business and small-time production factories. After a while all of them left the premises and every single building was abandoned. The place became closed to the public but that never stopped urban explorers and graffiti artist. It was also a place where young local people hung out and ironically drank beer. The buildings days are not over and even though it is heavily damaged it just may be saved and renovated. As of 2014, Bärenquell Brauerei has a new owner, a firm that owns a chain of furniture shops has the papers for the property. The plan most likely is to open another mega furniture store on the premises. Some of the brewery's smaller buildings have already been torn down to open place for the new shopping mall structure. There's not a ton of stories about hauntings here but there are a few and that's enough for us… Because it's a brewery and fuck it we can do what we want, you don't like it… Get your own podcast. Most of the things we found about hauntings here involve creepy sounds and a few shadow people stories. People claim to hear disembodied voices late at night and many report hearing sounds like things being thrown out, dropped, and banging and clanging noises. There's also been reports from kids hanging out in the brewery at night of strange shadows and possible apparitions, but to be fair… They were most likely under the influence. Ok now that we got our obligatory alcohol reference into the episode let's see what else we can find. Well let's take a nice hike… How's that sound? We could hike through the Black Forest, that could be fun… Or could it… This forest is surrounded by castles, monasteries, and ruins. The wilderness of this site has many tales to its name, making it one of the most haunted sites in Munich. Based on local folklore, ghosts, witches, werewolves and even the devil are believed to haunt this forest. One of the more well known tales from the black Forest is that of Der Grossman! Der Großmann (der Grossman), or “The Tall Man”/ "The Great Man", is a supposed mythical creature associated with woodcuts carved by an unknown artist in 16th century Germany. Said woodcuts portrayed it as a tall, disfigured man with white spheres where his eyes should be, similar in appearance to the Slender Man. Der Großmann was commonly described as a fairy of the Black Forest who abducted bad children that entered the forest at night, and would stalk them until they confessed their wrongdoings to a parent. We found A supposedly translated account from 1702 describes an alleged incident involving Der Großmann: My child, my Lars… he is gone. Taken from his bed. The only thing that we found was a scrap of black clothing. It feels like cotton, but it is softer… thicker. Lars came into my bedroom yesterday, screaming at the top of his lungs that "The angel is outside!" I asked him what he was talking about, and he told me some nonsense fairy story about Der Großmann. He said he went into the groves by our village and found one of my cows dead, hanging from a tree. I thought nothing of it at first…But now, he is gone. We must find Lars, and my family must leave before we are killed. I am sorry, my son… I should have listened. May God forgive me. Wow… Well that's unsettling. We also found a story involving a haunted hostel in the black Forest. "When I was 12 years old I went on a school trip to the Black Forest in Germany. The hostel we were staying at seemed relatively normal to begin with but each night we were more and more convinced that there was a ghostly presence. I was in a shared dormitory with 3 of my friends. It started on the first night when I was the first to fall asleep. When I awoke the next morning they asked if I had heard someone come and stand outside our bedroom door at 1am in the morning. I was asleep so I had not heard anything, so it didn't really occur to me it was anything scary. The second night we all sat up talking and at 1am we heard someone come up the stairs and stand outside our dormitory. My friend nervously laughed and the person must have heard us because they ran down the stairs so fast it left us speechless. The third night we all went to sleep quite early hoping we would sleep past 1am, however this time we awoke to one of the girls in our dorm screaming and crying. When we turned the lamp on and calmed her down she said she had turned over and saw a man sitting on the end of my bed. After that nothing happened. We sat up each night and waited until 1am but the person never came back. The day I came back from Germany I went for a nap because I was exhausted from the long journey. My mum came into my room to get my suitcase when apparently I shot upright in bed, eyes wide open, deeply breathing. My mum said she had never seen me do anything like that before and she had to lie me back down and wait for me to go back to sleep. I have no recollection of this. Since then nothing has happened but I definitely know something traumatised us in that hostel." What else can you find in the black Forest, well let us tell you. There are stories of Water nymphs that are supposed to live in the dark depths of the Mummel Lake at the foot of Hornisgrinde at Buhl, Baden. Then there's the Legend of Fremersberg Mountain A small cloister of Franciscans had a monastery on the southern slope of Fremersberg Mountain from 1426 until 1826. It was named Kloesterle. The monks were not only concerned with the spiritual health of the people, they also concerned themselves with their earthly peace. For instance, when ghosts raising a ruckus on the mountain, raised fear and anxiety among the villagers with their rumblings, the monks caught the troublemakers, put them in sacks, and carried them to poltergeist graves, where they remain banned once and for all. So the story goes..... How about the Legends of Yberg Castle Myths of this ancient castle tell of fair ladies who appear in the night; of unusual Bowling games on the first Monday of every month and of a mysterious vault, that no one could find, filled with delicious wines. Or you could go with the Myth of the Village of Ittersbach In 1232 Herman, Margrave of Baden, gave his villages of Utilspur (today called Ittersbach) and Wolmerspur to the convent St. Gallen. As a settlement Wolmerspur disappeared, but the cause is unknown whether war, plague or famine. According to myth, at midnight during Advent a headless horseman on a white steed rides in the cemetery over the terrain of the destroyed village of Wolmerspur. Then there's The Legend of Hex Von Dasenstein In the village of Kappelrodeck (Kreis Ortenau) there is an old legend surrounding the town's namesake family. High on a hill sits Rodeck Castle that was, for centuries, the seat of this aristocratic family. Centuries ago, legend has it, that a beautiful daughter of the family fell in love with a peasant boy. Her powerful father forbid her to marry the boy. The girl ran away to the other side of the valley and took up life as a hermit in a huge outcrop of rocks in the middle of the mountainside vineyards. The outcropping was known as Dasenstein. Over the years, the townsfolk came to believe that the girl was a powerful and good witch who watched over their blessed grape crops. The local wine cooperative goes by the name, Hex von Dasenstein (Witch of Dasenstein). Its wines are renown throughout Europe and in 1982, its spatburgunder (pinot noir) was named best wine in Europe and served to President Reagan during his ill fated visit to Bitburg. The Mummelsee The Mummelsee is a 17-metre-deep (about 55ft) lake at the western mountainside of the Hornisgrinde in the Northern Black Forest of Germany. The Mummelsee has a legend of a king who lived beneath the water and dragged down women to his kingdom under the water many years ago. I mean we could go on, sometimes you get a twofer… This was like a 7fer This forest is on pretty much every list of the most haunted forests in the world, sounds like for good reason! You can find all sorts of stories from the area that will make you think twice before hanging around. It seems in our travels that religious sites are usually good for some creepiness and it's no different here. We're gonna check out the Wessobrunn Monastery. Wessobrunn Abbey (Kloster Wessobrunn) was a Benedictine monastery near Weilheim in Bavaria, Germany. According to tradition, it was founded in 753 by Duke Tassilo III, but its origins probably are associated with the important Huosi family, founders of benediktbeuern. It soon became an imperial abbey. In the 9th century, when it colonized the wastelands between the Ammer and Lech Rivers, a monk wrote the famous Wessobrunn Prayer, one of the oldest and best examples of Old High German literature. In 955 Hungarians destroyed the monastery, whose lands were ruled by provosts until 1065, when Benedictines returned from sankt emmeram in Regensburg and established a double monastery. One of the nuns, Diemud, c. 1150 excelled as a poet and calligrapher (45 MSS). Romanesque stone sculpture of the 12th–13th century discovered in Wessobrunn belongs among the German masterpieces of the period. The abbey joined the reforms of hirsau and melk (1438). In 1414 Abbot Ulrich Höhenkirchner was mitered. Under Leonhard Weiss (1671–96) began a period of glory, as Wessobrunn became a center of scholarship and baroque art with its famous school of stucco artists and painters. In the 18th century 30 monks taught at Salzburg University and at other Benedictine schools of higher learning. Wessobrunn monks compiled a Bible concordance that became a standard exegetic work. Three-fourths of the buildings, including the Romanesque church, were demolished after suppression of the abbey in 1803. Only the hostelry, with stuccoed and painted floors and halls, still stands. The grounds are owned by the archabbey of St. Ottilien; the buildings of Wessobrunn are occupied by the Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing. The monastery is also known as one of the haunted sites in Germany. Based on an event in the 12th century, a sister in the monastery went into hiding in the underground tunnel because she broke her vows. She was locked inside and reported to have died of starvation. This resulted in the tale that the sister's spirit is never at rest and still roams the areas of this monastery. Many many people have reported seeing an apparition roaming the halls and grounds. There are also many reports of people hearing a lady weeping and crying. Sticking with the religious places, let's check out Kloster Unterzell. The Kloster cell was a former convent of the Premonstratensians in Zell am Main in Würzburg in Bavaria in the diocese of Wuerzburg. A dark chapter in the history of the Unterzell Monastery is the fate of the superior Maria Renata Singer von Mossau , who was sentenced to death and executed in 1749 during the witch persecution in the Würzburg monastery. This story is where the Hauntings are believed to come from. Locals and visitors to the monastery have reported witnessing her spirit passing through the corridors of the Kloster Unterzell. They say you can also see her lurking in shadows and just outside of your field of vision but disappearing when you look. You can find some stories on different reddit type sites that'll creep you out for sure. There are tons of creepy haunted castles in Germany and most of them are pretty fucking awesome to see. We've got a few for you here! We'll start with Hohenzollern Castle. The White Lady of Hohenzollern Around 500 years ago, the prince-elector of Brandenburg, Joachim II, took a mistress called Anna Sydow after his second wife, Hedwig Jagiellon of Poland, suffered a severe injury. The injury put a great strain on his marriage and the elector grew very close to Anna, putting her up in the Jagdschloss Grunewald, a Renaissance-style castle in Berlin. Joachim grew so fond of Anna that he was even seen in public with her, which disgruntled the public. They had several children together and Joachim even bestowed the title of Countess von Arneberg on his daughter, Magdalene. The years passed and one day, Joachim made his son, Johann Georg, swear an oath to protect Anna after his death. He made his son swear the oath again a year later and, a year before his death, arranged for Magdalene to be placed in the care of Johann. Despite his promises, Johann reneged on his oath and imprisoned Anna in Spandau Citadel, almost immediately after his father died. Johann then married Magdalene to a court pension clerk. Anna remained in the prison for four years until she died. Johann continued his life as elector of Brandenburg, imposing taxes on the poor and exiling the Jewish people from Brandenburg. He thought he had seen the last of Anna Sydow, but he was wrong. Eight days before his death, Anna appeared as a ghastly apparition; the White Woman. Sightings of the White Woman have persisted since that time, particularly before the death of one of the Hohenzollern Kings of Prussia. In the mid-1800s, King Frederick William IV of Prussia, stopped by Pillnitz Castle to visit his cousins, the King and Queen of Saxony. That night, everything was still. The air was cold and crisp, and it was silent as a strange fog descended on the castle. Reports by on-duty sentries from that night tell of five ghastly spectral figures walking through the castle walls and towards the King's chambers. One figure, a White Woman, led the other four, headless men carrying a casket. Inside the casket, another man lay, a crown where his head was supposed to be. The next day, King Frederick William began to suffer from terrible symptoms, which would continue for three months. He suffered a haemorrhagic stroke which would leave him incapacitated. He remained this way for three years, until he finally died. The White Woman has all but disappeared, mainly due to the German monarchy being abolished, as the House of Hohenzollern had no more kings in its line. It is said, however, that she might appear to the forsaken few who wander around the Berlin Schloss or the Spandau Citadel. Well that is a fun story… Let's check out another! Burg Eltz is a picturesque medieval castle, tucked away in the hills in the west of Germany, between Koblenz and Trier. It is one of Germany's more famous castles and has never been destroyed or taken in battle. Since its construction, and even to this day, the castle has been owned by the Eltz family. The castle is also said to be haunted by the forlorn ghost of Agnes, daughter of a fifteenth-century earl from the noble Eltz family. Agnes' hand in marriage was promised to the squire of Braunsburg when they were both just children. Years passed and as the two passed into adulthood, their engagement day drew close. Their families arranged for them to finally meet for the first time, just days before the engagement took place. Upon meeting the young squire, Agnes was shocked at how rude and callous he was. Agnes begged her father to call off the engagement, but he refused - the marriage had been sealed years ago and had to be honoured. Negotiations concerning dowry and heritage began between the two families. In the final meeting, when everything had been agreed, the squire turned to kiss his soon-to-be bride. Agnes refused to kiss her betrothed and he responded angrily, swearing vehemently at her. Tensions rose and the squire's family were expelled from the castle. The Braunsberg squire raised his forces and laid siege. The Eltzer guards were tricked into leaving the castle and chasing an expeditionary force, allowing the squire to sneak in with his heavily armoured bodyguard one night. They began massacring the Eltzer residents, servants and the few guards that were left behind. Agnes awoke to the sound of murder and upon seeing the slaughter from the window of her tower, rushed to the castle armoury. She took her brother's ornate breastplate and sword and rushed into battle, ferociously hacking back the attackers. Her courage inspired the few remaining defenders to slowly turn the tide of the battle. The attackers seemed all but beaten until an arrow struck and pierced Agnes' armour, fatally wounding her. Upon seeing her fall, the Eltzer defenders rushed the squire, hacking him down and driving off the attackers. The castle was saved but Agnes succumbed to her wounds, her spirit forever cursed to haunt the very castle she fought to defend. And what tour of creepy castles would be complete without…. Fucking Frankenstein's castle. On a hilltop in the Odenwald mountain range, overlooking the German city of Darmstadt, are the crumbling remains of the real-life Frankenstein Castle. The stone structure has stood upon the hilltop since the mid-13th century. Some say that the castle's dark legend made its way to a young Mary Shelley, providing inspiration for her great novel. While “Frankenstein” conjures thoughts of mad scientists and lumbering monsters, the phrase is in fact a fairly normal phrase for castles in southern Germany. The term “Frank” refers to the ancient Germanic tribe, while “stein” means stone. “Frankenstein” means “Stone of the Franks.” Lord Conrad II Reiz of Breuberg constructed the castle sometime around 1250. He christened the structure Frankenstein Castle, and afterward adopted the name “von und zu Frankenstein.” As founder of the free imperial Barony of Frankenstein, Lord Conrad held power over nearby Darmstadt, Ockstadt, Nieder-Beerbach, Wetterau, and Hesse. As for the castle's dark legend, that can be traced back to alchemist Johann Conrad Dippel, who was born in the castle in 1673. It is suggested that Dippel influenced Mary Shelley's fantasy when she wrote her Frankenstein novel, though there is no mention of the castle in Shelley's journals from the time. However, it is known that in 1814, prior to writing the famous novel, Shelley took a journey on the river Rhine. She spent a few hours in the town of Gernsheim, which is located about 16 kilometres (10 miles) from the castle. Several nonfiction books on the life of Mary Shelley claim Dippel as a possible influence. Dippel created an elixir known as Dippel's Oil. Derived from pulverized animal bones, the dark, viscous oil was used as late as World War II, as a chemical warfare agent that rendered wells undrinkable without actually making the water poisonous. Rumors surrounding Dippel hold that, during his time at Frankenstein Castle, he practiced anatomy as well as alchemy, even going so far as to exhume corpses and perform medical experiments on them. There are some reports claiming that Dippel actually created a monster that was brought to life by a bolt of lightning—though it seems most likely that Shelley's tale inspired these stories, and not the other way around. Rumours about Dippel appear to be modern inventions, too. For example, he is said to have performed experiments with cadavers, in which he attempted to transfer the soul of one cadaver into another. Soul-transference with cadavers was a common experiment among alchemists at the time and was a theory that Dippel supported in his writings, thus making it possible that Dippel pursued similar objectives, but there is no direct evidence to link him to these specific acts. There is also no evidence to the rumour that he was driven out of town when word of his activities reached the ears of the townspeople — though he was often banned from countries, notably Sweden and Russia, for his controversial theological positions. He also eventually had to flee to Giessen after killing a man in a duel. An intriguing local legend tells of a Lord Georg of Frankenstein, who lived in the castle and fought a dragon that lurked at a nearby well. The legend goes that the lord was stung by the dragon's poison tail during the skirmish, and died after making his way back to the castle. The supposed tomb of Lord Georg can still be visited in the church in the nearby village of Nieder Beerbach. The forest near the castle is also home to a particularly eerie natural anomaly. Due to magnetic stone formations within the mountains, there are places near Frankenstein Castle where compasses cease to work properly. Legends say that witches used these areas for their sabbaths on Walpurgisnacht. In 2008, the SyFy show Ghost Hunters International dedicated an entire episode to Frankenstein Castle. While there, the investigators met with a Frankenstein expert and claimed that the castle held “significant paranormal activity.” Sounds were recorded in the castle's chapel and entrance tower, including a recording of what some believe was a voice speaking in Old German saying, “Arbo is here.” Also, Hidden behind the herb garden of the castle, there is a fountain of youth. Legend has it that on the first full-moon after Walpurgis Night, old women from the nearby villages had to undergo tests of courage. The one who succeeded became rejuvenated to the age she had been on the night of her wedding. It is not known if this tradition is still being practiced these days. Sounds like a fun place! This next one isn't necessarily a haunted spot but we found the story and thought it was cool. It's about a "devil's bridge". One of the most famous Devil's bridges in the world is the Steinerne Brücke (Stone Bridge) in Regensburg, Germany. The legend behind the Stone Bridge is quite the amazing tale. The story involves a race between two builders, the mentor versus his protégé. The mentor was building a cathedral while his protégé was constructing a bridge—the two of them made a bet, and the bet was to see who could finish their structure first. Eager to beat his mentor, the protégé made a deal with the Devil. In this pact, the Devil would receive the first three souls to cross the bridge. With the Devil's help the protégé won the bet. Filled with regret, the protégé guarded the bridge, refusing to let anyone cross. He was later visited by his mentor who was concerned by his behavior. The protégé broke down and confessed to his mentor of the deal he made with the Devil. The mentor came to the young man's aid, sending a rooster, a hen and a dog over the bridge. The Devil was so enraged that he was tricked by the cunning mentor, he attempted to destroy the bridge, but it was too strong to be ruined. However, the Devil's attempt did leave a bump in the middle of the bridge that is still there to this day. Awesome story. Next up we headed back to school… Wait no fuck that. We'll just talk about a school haunted by… Well.. Nazis of course. Bitburg school is no ordinary school. It's an American school for children of service members. The school is also taught by military servicemen, which means that people who see ghosts here have military connections. Back before Bitburg became a United States military base, it was a Nazi military zone. In the interwar years, Bitburg, like most of the Eifel region, was impoverished and comparatively backward. Economic growth began after the Nazi Seizure of Power and the Nazi regime's introduction of employment-boosting public works projects, including infrastructure for war, particularly the Westwall; new armed forces barracks; and the development of the Kyll Valley railway. It is said that the building now used as the post office at Bitburg Annex (what is left of Bitburg Air Base) was the headquarters for Adolf Hitler when he was in the city. In late December 1944, Bitburg was 85 percent destroyed by Allied bombing attacks, and later officially designated by the U.S. military as a "dead city." Subsequently, the town was occupied by Luxembourg soldiers, who were replaced by French forces in 1955. As you can imagine… Some pretty fucked up things probably went on in the area which would most likely lead to some crazy hauntings. Most of them seem to be focused at the bitburg middle school. There are many reports from reputable military individuals about the strange goings on at the school. Many people have their lights flickering on and off throughout the school. It's apparently a pretty common occurrence. People also report that at night the sounds of people screaming at the top of their lungs can be heard. Are these the voices of people that were tortured or killed in the area? There are a few stories about people seeing shadows and apparitions as well. Damn maybe we would have actually liked going to school if our school was like this! Lastly for this episode we're gonna visit Osnabrück Hünenbetten. This place used to be a major pagan temple and gravesite. When Charlemagne set out on a tirade to convert the inhabitants of the region to Christianity, a bloody massacre took place here. Now massacres, as we all know, are not a pleasant thing and this one led to the deaths of many pagan priests. The troops destroyed the largest altar stone to prove the supremacy of the Christian God over paganism. So it's no surprise that there are some crazy tales that come from this place. Take for instance the stories of how people see bloodstains appear on the rocks at the site, especially on the winter and summer equinox. There are reports of poltergeist activity as well. It's also said that on quiet nights you can hear the screens of the people who were massacred. There's also reports of strange lights and orbs being seen at the site as well. Okay, meine Freunde, das ist alles, was wir für diese Episode haben. wir hoffen, euch hat unsere Zugfahrt im gruseligen Deutschland gefallen. For those of you who don't speak German, you'll never know what I've just said. And for those that do speak German, well you're probably laughing at the translation and ALSO still probably never know what we actually were saying. And in saying that, it's time for … DIE FILME!!! https://www.ranker.com/list/best-horror-movies-about-castles/ranker-film BECOME A P.O.O.P.R.!! http://www.patreon.com/themidnighttrainpodcast Find The Midnight Train Podcast: www.themidnighttrainpodcast.com www.facebook.com/themidnighttrainpodcast www.twitter.com/themidnighttrainpc www.instagram.com/themidnighttrainpodcast www.discord.com/themidnighttrainpodcast www.tiktok.com/themidnighttrainp And wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.

As a virtuoso bassist, versatile composer, and acclaimed bandleader, Marc Johnson has been a major innovator on the jazz scene for the past two decades. Born in Nebraska in 1953, Johnson took up bass at the age of 16, having already studied piano and cello. While completing his formal education in the celebrated music program at the University of North Texas, at age19, Johnson began performing professionally with the Fort Worth Symphony. In 1977, he was on the road with the Woody Herman Band. A stop with Herman in New York City marked a major turning point for Johnson, where he was invited to sit in with Bill Evans at the Village Vanguard. In 1978, he joined Evans' trio, remaining with him until the pianist's death two years later. Johnson appears on numerous albums recorded with Evans, including the Grammy-winning We Will Meet Again and released in 1997, a six-CD box set of live recordings, Turn Out the Stars, weaving his distinctively warm tones and melodic lines into the complex harmonies of the Trio. Over the past 20 years, Johnson has performed on more than 100 albums. Many have been with pianists, including Eliane Elias, Lyle Mays, and Enrico Pieranunzi, although Johnson has also recorded with saxophonists Stan Getz, Joe Lovano, and Michael Brecker, drummers Peter Erskine and Paul Motian, and Jack DeJohnette, vibist Gary Burton, and bandoneon master Dino Saluzzi. And many of his most notable recordings have been with guitarists. In addition to his long membership in guitarist John Abercrombie's trio, Johnson formed two guitar-oriented bands that rose to prominence in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Overpass, recorded in January and February 2018 at Nacena Studios, in São Paulo, was produced by Marc Johnson and Eliane Elias. In this episode, Marc shares his background, education, and musical journey.

On this episode, Indie chats with Matthew Herman, one of the masterminds behind Boy Smells - a brand that sells highly spirited scented candles, fine fragrances and intimate wear for the genderful. Gender neutrality has long been a norm in the fashion world. However, GENDERFUL self-care is now what seems to be taking precedence. Is this due to fashion being influenced by social issues, or is it because brands now realize that the disparity has lately become fuzzy? In this candid interview with Indie, Matt shares his backstory, how he found himself drawn to entrepreneurship and growth strategies for brands that represent a subculture. Calling out worn-out definitions of masculinity, Matt talks about co-creating a gender “full” future with his audience and using his brand to disrupt stereotypes of what it means to be a man today.Links: Boy Smells Website: https://boysmells.com/Boy Smells Instagram: @boy__smells

On Wednesday, Raymond Naatz began to act strangely, telling his parents that something bad was going to happen—that a shadow was stalking him. On Thursday, Raymond disappeared while playing outside. On Friday, Herman and Lillian Naatz watched, heartbroken, as police pulled their son from the bottom of a local lake. Did Raymond predict his own murder, or was his death a tragic accident brought on by neurological stress?

At the 2021 Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) in Los Angeles last month I was able to catch up with microbiome researcher and writer Lucy Mailing, PhD. This year Lucy presented on the topic of Rewilding the Gut, noting the detrimental effects of our modern environment, diet, and lifestyle on the gut microbiome. Lucy has been on the podcast twice before, talking about optimising the gut microbiome and debunking microbiome myths and misconceptions. Lucy's research and writings are truly cutting-edge and have consistently shaped our recommendations and approach to gut health with our clients. On this podcast, Lucy shares some of the concepts she outlined during her AHS Talk, including the specific aspects of modern living that interfere with microbiome diversity and establishing a basis for chronic disease. She talks about the hygiene hypothesis, including the need for early childhood exposure to microbes, and some of the best ways to support a healthy gut ecosystem.

My guest today is Geoff Daking who grew up playing in local bands before attending American University which he ultimately left to join the NY based Mercury artist Blues Magoos to play the drums in 1966 (I was born in 1967). Between ‘66 and '69, they recorded four albums, two of which were platinum, and a top-five single, “We Ain't Got Nothin' Yet”. The peak of their career was in 1967 when they toured four months with Herman's Hermits and The Who (the Hermits were the headliners). During that time he became fascinated with recording and engineered some of the Magoos last albums. In the summer of 1969, Geoff went back to Woodstock where he played in bands with Tim Harden, Dave Sanborn, Paul Butterfield and Buzzy Feiton. In 1970, Geoff became a staff engineer at Sound Ideas in NYC, then SoundMixers NYC, and later as an independent engineer. And In 1982. he opened his own studio, Nimbus Nine, which grew to four rooms, one API, one Neve, one Trident, and one ProTools. Since 1970, Geoff has designed and built more than 20 recording studios for music, film and commercial production. including the all analog “BIG Blue” in Katonah NY for the recording of Joan Osborne's premier album, “Relish” and Tuxedo Park for Cyndi Lauper's “Sisters of Avalon”. His most recent studio is the multi-million dollar music production facility in Saint Petersburg Florida, Big3 Entertainment. In 1993 Geoff started manufacturing his own line of audio equipment. The first product was a combination mic-pre/eq. This all-discrete Class “A” unit was based on the legendary Trident A Range circuits by Barry Porter. Next was the FET Compressor. In 2000, production began for full-size Class A recording consoles in frame sizes from 16 to 80 inputs. Thanks so much to William Wittman for making our introduction!

Luisteraars! Enkele maanden geleden zat ik in mineur. Drie miljoen mensen keken naar een veertien uur durend marathondebat over vier woorden op een A4'tje. Mij bekroop indertijd het gevoel dat we naar een politieke soap keken, waarin af en toe iemand een duur woord als ‘dualisme' gebruikte om het nog enig cachet te geven. Dat deze politiek met een enorm kleine p zo belangrijk werd gemaakt, terwijl veel wezenlijkere onderwerpen volstrekt onder de radar vliegen, gaf aanleiding voor enige deemoed. Mijn gemoed knapte weer op toen ik de eerste persconferentie van de toen nieuwe informateur – en mijn gast van deze week – Herman Tjeenk Willink zag. We stegen meteen op uit de Haagse heisa van poppetjes en partijen. ‘Hoe vaak worden in parlementaire enquêtes incidenten niet gezien als iets waar iemand schuld aan heeft?' zei Tjeenk Willink tijdens die persconferentie. 'En dat ook naar schuldigen wordt gezocht. Daar gaat de suggestie van uit dat als man of vrouw er niet was geweest, het incident niet zou hebben plaatsgevonden.' Hij noemde dat ‘een vrij optimistisch en naïef beeld'. Vaak liggen problemen besloten in ‘de dynamiek van het stelsel zelf', oordeelde hij. ‘Waarvan u overigens ook deel uitmaakt', hield hij de journalisten voor. Toen ben ik opgestaan om het Wilhelmus te zingen. Afijn, ik ben dus een fan! Inmiddels is Tjeenk Willink informateur-af en heeft hij een nieuw boek geschreven getiteld Kan de overheid crises aan? In de podcast hebben we het daarover. En over al die abstracte begrippen die nu de ronde doen in het publieke debat: die nieuwe bestuurscultuur, wat is dat? Dualisme, wat betekent dat? Meer aandacht voor uitvoering, hoe moet dat?

Which is right, wrong are there differences to a healthy marriage? DO YOU KNOW HOW TO BEST FIX YOUR MARRIAGE OR MAKE IT BETTER? It's not what you think. You must first make yourself better… but how? Come find out! Bill Fong Aside from bowling, Bill Fong hasn't had a lot of success in life. His Chinese mother demanded perfection, but he was a C student. He never finished college, he divorced young, and he never made a lot of money. By his own account, his parents didn't like him much. As a bowler, his average in the high 230s means he's probably better than anyone you know. But he's still only tied as the 15th best bowler in Plano's most competitive league. Almost nothing in life has gone according to plan. He likes to say he got his approach to bowling from the hard-hitting alleys in his native Chicago, where he went to high school with Michelle Obama. He was one of the few kids from Chinatown interested in bowling at the time. Despite his strict mother and the fact that his friends were all on the honor roll, little William preferred sports. He dreamed of being a professional athlete one day. He wasn't big—too short for basketball, too slender for football—but he'd run up and down the block as a boy, racing imaginary friends. When Fong was young, his parents divorced. He remembers the man who would become his stepdad taking his mom out on dates to a local bowling alley, where they could bring the kids. He noticed that when he was bowling, he wasn't thinking about whatever was going on behind him. His mind could focus on the ball, the lane, the pins—and the rest of the world would disappear. He had never been captivated by anything like that. In high school he read book after book on bowling… he studied it and began to get better than most. But when he got married his wife said “grow up” and get a real job. So he quit golf, started cutting hair and took ten years to master golf… he didn't master it. After 10 years he quit it… He decided bowling was a comfort to him so he started going to the lanes a few times a week and started back up where he left off pretty quickly… Now he was still an above average bowler… but not the king by any means… until that one night in January 2010. He rolled his first 6 frames… all strikes… not totally unusual for him… it had happened many times… He finished out that game a perfect 300. He started his second game… now there is something you should know about bowling the best of the best are measured by bowling 3 games of 300. That makes you world famous… So his second game he had a few close calls… but they all fell and it was his second 300 game. As he started his 3rd game he thought he felt the pressure building. He was sweating, tightness in his chest, a little short bursts of panic… but he held the course… the last 6 frames the whole bowling alley came to stand and watch. with each strike close to his 300 they went wild… until his final frame. Bill thought this is it, this is what will change my life… I can start a pro tour, I can get some sponsors, I will now be esteemed and admired, I will prove my parents wrong… And he let that last ball fly down the lane… It looked absolutely perfect just like every other throw… the pins exploded and everyone froze as they watched the #10 pin wobble, wobble and then regain its balance and stay standing… total silence. Fong literally collapsed only to be held by some of his friends… He went home, feeling drained, nauseas and numb… he threw up in the bathroom and felt the room spinning…he realized he was having a stroke. Rushed to the hospital and after tests and heart surgery the doctor told Bill that if he had thrown a strike on that last frame he surely would have died from the adrenaline that would have hit him… and in fact the miss and the dramatic drop in energy and heartbreak kept him from dying. What was meant for bad actually saved his life. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28 (NIV) The Living Bible translation words it this way: “And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans.” First, He works for “the good of those who love Him.” If you love God, you can trust that He is working for your good. But what does Good mean? Good throughout scripture implies completion. So he is not working just on OUR good… my good might be a bigger house, a faster car more money a vacation in the hamptons… But God is working for us to be completed in him. That we are complete in his work, his call his mission and his power and faith. Second, He works for “those who are called according to His purpose.” Here is a thought… you do realize that following God entails submitting to His purpose for you? You have been called by Him for a purpose that He holds for your life. these two qualifiers–loving God and experiencing His call–are actually one thought, one action. Those who love God are called according to His purpose. Being called according to God's purpose also reminds us what “our good” actually is. It's not our comfort or worldly success. It's the furthering of His purpose through us.

Which is right, wrong are there differences to a healthy marriage? DO YOU KNOW HOW TO BEST FIX YOUR MARRIAGE OR MAKE IT BETTER? It's not what you think. You must first make yourself better… but how? Come find out! What's your absolute worst case scenario? Your alternate destiny, once Plan A, B (and C-Z) crash and burn? Could you survive it? Learn from it? Laugh through it? Make art out of it? No matter how “secure” or “successful” I become, I'm always humbled by the fact that nothing is certain or permanent. Anything could happen — a bad business decision, an unexpected illness, a freak accident, a shocking plot twist — and I might find myself slinging cheap beer in a grungy dive bar, subsisting on Saltine crackers and packets of free ketchup, digging through garbage for a second-hand brassiere. Y'know. Living inside a Dolly Parton song. Not ideal. But I could survive it. And in a twisted way, my worst case scenario might provide so many gifts — plenty of free time, lack of intense responsibilities, deeper empathy for my fellow human beings, or the inspiration for my next book or project. Who knows? Once we make peace with the notion of things Not Going As Planned, we can find beauty and bravery in all of The Alternatives. So, if everything you're working so diligently to create falls apart — in one horrific tsunami of unthinkable chaos — don't worry! Be less dependent on electricity, food from grocery stores, water from your tap, transportation that needs fuel, less dependent on money for survival, Friends Storage Basic skills for outdoor and living off the land But spiritually what if the worst thing happens spiritually in your walk? You come home and your best friend is sleeping with your wife? Your husband is arrested for child molestation? Your kids are sentenced 40 years for violent crime? You are told you have cancer and months to live? Heb. 4:12 12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Gods word brings life to dead things. Worst case scenario in our spiritual life is when things die… relationships, finances, health, future plans, jobs, To know Gods word is to know what to do in every worst case scenario. Isn't it about time you took his word a little more seriously?

Which is right, wrong are there differences to a healthy marriage? DO YOU KNOW HOW TO BEST FIX YOUR MARRIAGE OR MAKE IT BETTER? It's not what you think. You must first make yourself better… but how? Come find out! Billy Graham is our generations greatest evangelist. He preached to millions and who knows how many came to Christ through his ministry. I have always thought it somewhat puzzling that this Godly man was asked to meet with Presidents (some who were not so Godly) with Athletic superstars, Rock Stars, movie stars… and they all loved him. He would preach to a stadium of thousands… But what always blew me away was that is preaching was just ok… There I said it. he was not a captivating riveting speaker by any means. In fact I found him quite simple, sometimes… here I go… Boring. But he always had results. But he was just like you and me in more ways than you might think… As a senior in high school, a young Billy Graham found himself in a dark classroom with a girl who begged Graham to make love to her. Instead of rounding the bases, Graham made like Joseph and ran away. In 1937 Billy Graham fell in love with Emily Cavanaugh and proposed to her in the summer. She had to think about it and eventually said yes in the fall. But by 1938 she was having second thoughts and in the spring she dumped Billy Graham for one of his classmates, Charles Massey. Graham gave a Ted Talk in 1998 Graham once went skinny-dipping with President Lyndon Johnson. The first time Billy Graham shared his testimony was with a group of about 10 prisoners. The experience “reinforced my conviction that I would never become a preacher.” Billy Graham attended Bob Jones University for one semester and upon leaving, Bob Jones Sr. predicted nothing but failure for Billy Graham. Graham's first formal sermon lasted eight minutes and included all four sermons he had prepared. In the 1970s Billy attended various rock festivals, protests, and love-ins in order to better understand and connect with young people. To maintain anonymity, he attended “incognito” (meaning he donned a hat, sunglasses, and a big sweater). Billy Graham was one of the few Americans who could get mail simply addressed, “Billy Graham, America.” But what made him stand out… it wasn't because of his speaking or preaching ability. 2 major things… First: His integrity and character was impeccable. That is why even the secular world had such great respect for him. But mostly… He stands out for the same reason you can stand out as well. Preach the gospel. Jesus Christ the son of God died for your sins. He is the only way to have a relationship with God the Father. You must accept his forgiveness and give your life to him. You don't need to belabor the point with people.

Which is right, wrong are there differences to a healthy marriage? Nobody likes a backseat driver, no one wants to hear about how tough you are unless you have scars to prove it, no one cares how much you bench unless we see it or some trophies, nobody cares how great of a cook you are until we can taste it. Shut up until we actually see you do it, live it, be it! Lets be honest right now we are living in a time where everyone has an opinion, a platform to whine, complain, argue and even spout off like an expert with no real background to back it up. So I don't want to take on the issues of today per se, like COVID, The president, BLM, China etc…. But where can we draw the line! When do we just walk away and ignore people? Or maybe even tell them off… and if we do OR if we can- how do we… and is it biblical? Well lets look at Galatians - Paul wrote this book. Galatians has always been among those Pauline epistles least challenged on the issue of authorship. Paul wrote to the churches in southern Galatia after having a hand in starting them on his first missionary journey to Asia Minor. Paul's close relationship to these churches helps to explain the extremely strong tone he took with them from the very beginning of the letter. Galatians exhibits Paul at his angriest, as he risked the good favor of the converts in those churches to make sure they were on the path of truth and not led off into deception. In fact, to emphasize the seriousness of his purpose, he took the pen from his scribe and wrote the end of the letter himself in large letters The churches had some issues going on… Mainly some converts started to emphasize the law and basically saying we must earn our salvation… even after Paul had preached and given them the beautiful understanding of the gospel, gods grace and his provision… Others emphasized just the opposite and that because we are saved by grace we can continue on into a life of sin. TALK ABOUT A YING YANG problem. *isn't that just like religious people… they will still pervert the gospel - they will argue their point, try to impress you with why they are right. Things haven't change much have they? Seems like everyone has an opinion. So where am I going with this? I have shared this thought many times but a verse in Galatians 6 at the end of the chapter reminded me of this point. Unless you are winning people for Christ, having to deal with some type of persecution… maybe laughed at, or you put your reputation on the line or you don't mind looking foolish (and do so on a regular basis) or you risk faith in praying for the sick, lost and again this is out on your daily routine… LET ME PUT IT THIS WAY… YOU ARE LIVING IT AND YOU ARE SEEING FRUIT! So many times I ask people who want to argue with me… how many people have you shared Christ with this week, this month? How many have you led to Christ? How many have you prayed for healing? HOW MANY? Because if its not more than a couple… I don't care what you have to say. Don't bother me. is this attitude wrong? Well lets take a look at what Paul writes at the end of this letter and he is angry and even picks up the pen and says I am writing this in my own handwriting and in big letters… like in caps right? Gal. 6:17 NIV 17 From now on, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus. Galatians 6 Message 17 Quite frankly, I don't want to be bothered anymore by these disputes. I have far more important things to do—the serious living of this faith. I bear in my body scars from my service to Jesus. Look, there are a few ways to look at this verse. First off, if you are living for jesus and really living a life of faith and putting it on the line every day… then quit worrying about everyone else and their opinion and what they are getting caught up in. And there is the more obtuse and yet i believe still biblical thought of just calling people out. I have in the recent past told someone their opinion means nothing to me because they do not live out their faith, they simply argue their flawed theological ideals. Until you actually start telling people about jesus, telling them the beautiful salvation message and start actually leading people to Christ… and bonus - you are praying for people out in public and seeing healings and getting words of knowledge… I do not care about what you have to say about the bible, your insights to scripture and please do not argue with me about my theological beliefs. Finally… are you that guy? That girl? Do you have scars to share? Do you have stories of being harassed for your faith, made fun of, maybe even taken some pain… my wife had someone try to light her hair on fire when we were out witnessing. Live a life of faith that gives you some scars, some stories, some battle tested insights and testimonies.
Today, the Cowsills bring on two talented musicians, Dennis Scott and Jonathan Pushkar. The two have been called to create music from a young age -- Johnathan began playing guitar at age 10 and writing songs in his early teens and Dennis began his entertainment career at the age of 7 as an actor on Broadway. The Cowsills had the pleasure of working with Johnathan and Dennis on their Mr. Rogers tribute album.Johnathan's biggest influences were pop artists of the 1960s; acts like The Beatles, Herman's Hermits, The Searchers, The Beach Boys, and The Monkees. Later, he came around to “That Thing You Do!” and Fountains of Wayne, which infused a modern influence on his music. Johnathan's release of his most recent project, Compositions feature modern songs with a vintage twist.Dennis Scott is a two-time Grammy Award winning songwriter/producer/writer has left no corner of the children's music industry unexplored. His songs have been recorded by such artists as Ray Charles, Faith Hill, Kathie Lee Gifford, The Muppets, and more. Dennis' work has been featured on stage and television in shows such as Sesame Street, Magic School Bus, Clifford the Big Red Dog, and Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade to name a few.The group discuss their upcoming projects and more in this week's episode of The Cowsills Podcast.Song of the Week: Won't You Be My Neighbor
