CHRISTMAS EPISODE OUT NOW 🎄
Celebrate the Holidays with the Bigger Than Me Podcast ☃️
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, have a blessed Kwanzaa and a terrific holiday season!
As the year draws to a close, Tim Srigley and I have returned for our final episode, and it's a celebration of the season, packed with laughter, reflection, and unique experiences. This episode is not just a farewell to the year but a kaleidoscope of Christmas traditions, meaningful discussions, and of course, our signature light-hearted banter.
Voicing Over and Aged Eggnog: A Start to Remember
We kicked off by reminiscing about Tim's contribution to the Bigger Than Me Podcast - his voiceovers that have become a signature part of our show. But then, we took an adventurous turn by trying five-year-old eggnog. Yes, you read that right! The aged eggnog was a delightful surprise, offering a new twist on a traditional Christmas beverage. Its smooth, rich flavor was an unexpected treat, proving that some things do indeed get better with age.
Live Events, Christmas Traditions, and the Essence of Gift-Giving
We also revisited our recent live event, which was a hit with introvert lounges, delicious Bannock, slow-roasted turkey sandwiches, and live music by the talented Rebecca Sichon. These gatherings are a testament to our community's spirit and the joy of coming together.
Diving into Christmas traditions, we discussed the charm of bringing home an authentic Christmas tree and paid tribute to a departed celebrity, reminding us of the bittersweet feelings this season can evoke.
But perhaps the most reflective part of our discussion centered around gift-giving. We explored its true essence - is it just an obligation, or does it signify something deeper? This topic led us into a deeper conversation about how our modern lifestyle, with its comforts of warming up in winter and cooling down in summer, might be defying nature's course.
A Cause Close to Our Hearts: Supporting Cancer Research
The episode took a serious turn as we discussed supporting cancer research, a cause very close to our hearts. Both of us shared personal stories about our encounters with the disease, highlighting the urgent need for funding research to find a cure. The emotional weight of dealing with cancer and its accompanying rollercoaster of emotions emphasized the importance of making a positive impact.
The Fun Side: Christmas Movies, Fasting Challenges, and Music Rights
As we rounded off the episode, we indulged in lighter topics, sharing our favorite Christmas movies, albums, and food. We even pondered the idea of embracing fasting and cold plunges as challenges for the new year.
Music, an integral part of the festive season, also made it to our discussion. We delved into the intricacies of Christmas music and the potential consequences of using copyrighted tunes.
This episode was a rich blend of holiday cheer, thought-provoking discussions, and personal experiences. From aging eggnog to advocating for cancer research, it offered insights into the diverse facets of Christmas and the traditions that shape our celebrations. It was an episode that truly brought the spirit of Christmas to life, filled with engaging conversations and abundant laughter.
As we step into the New Year, we carry with us the lessons learned, the joy experienced, and the hope for a future filled with more such meaningful episodes. Stay tuned for more from the Bigger Than Me Podcast, and until then, embrace the spirit of the season and step into the New Year with the right mindset.
