Ep. 46: Life App Podcast 1st Anniversary!
Word of the Day: mesmerized (adj.) fascinated; spellbound; mentally captivated
Many English words come from people’s names, and this is an example. It comes from Franz Anton Mesmer, a German doctor in the 1700s who had controversial ideas about magnetism, hypnosis, and the physical body.
Ex. When is the last time you were mesmerized by a book?
Question of the Day: When you have a dream or goal, do you tend to wait till you know all there is to know about it, or do you start sooner and hope you’ll learn the details along the way?
Join us for our 1st anniversary show as we celebrate one year since posting our first podcast episode on July 26, 2017: “Look for the Seaweed.” Scott tells how the idea of the Life App podcast was birthed and some of the highlights from our first year!
