Dr. Thomas R. Lamar, your podcast chiropractor
Episode 171 — FINALE SHOW — Closing the Safety Pin “ter to TOR” — Graduation, Celebration, and Connection — featuring Esteb, Dubel, Kelly, Flannery, Jones, Waters, BJ, EPOC Underground, and Gold
While some may remember it as the episode that holds the World's Record for the LONGEST Chiropractic Podcast EVER Recorded (7 hours, 41 minutes, and 52 seconds), for others the Finale Episode of Spinal Column Radio memorializes a TRANSFORMATION — a transformation they have witnessed in themselves when it comes to chiropracTIC. Because of the content shared on SCR, they — like the host, Dr. Thomas Lamar — have experienced a "shift." For in their regular listening, they have witnessed in themselves a CHANGE — a change in how they now THINK, TEACH, and PREACH chiropractic. The "safety pin" between their ears has clicked into position and a "CONNECTION" has been made. They now GET the Big Idea. They now GET chiropracTIC and see themselves as chiropracTORs. They have undergone "The ter to TOR Evolution." Have YOU? Join Dr. Thomas Lamar (and Logan) for a final episode that not only recognizes this "shift" with Graduation and Celebration, but CONNECTS it all together with the SAFETY PIN. First Dr. Lamar and Listeners symbolically GRADUATE "ter to TOR" — marking this moment in history — as they join Life Chiropractic College West's Graduation Ceremony LIVE via a mic'ed-up Big TOR on Campus, Brett Jones, to vicariously walk across the platform with him. Not only will listeners "graduate" with Lamar, but he, through the POWER OF THE PODCAST, addresses the actual student graduates at Life West from his SCR Studio on their Big Screen. Afterwards, Life West President, Dr. Brian Kelly, joins the program to share some words with the newly "graduated" SCR-ter-to-TOR-Listeners. Then, if all that weren't enough, Life West Dean of Enrollment, Dr. Mary Flannery joins Lamar in-studio to talk about an exciting new program that allows "ter to TOR"graduate-listeners to CONNECT with Life West through their Safety Pin Project — grafting them in the family as "alumni" of their philosophical, vitalistic, subluxation-based institution. Plus participating SCR Listeners will receive a Spinal Column Radio Safety Pin Certificate, acting as a "diploma" that will remind and tell of this transformation graduation. Then the Finale Show kicks into party mode, as Dr. Lamar and Logan CELEBRATE four years of Spinal Column Radio. They break out STATS and share MEMORIES. Lamar goes Underground at the Tacoma EPOC to CONNECT with some of the Best SCR Backyard Listeners and Chiro Bros on the Planet (Aaron Toler, Seth Anderson, Nathan Wall, and Walt Scott) and then is back in studio to continue the celebration with some special people... people who share a special place in Lamar's 18-year "ter to TOR journey." On the guest list: Bill Esteb, Jim Dubel, Todd Waters, and Reggie Gold. Plus, for some Chiro-Comedy, Todd Water's "BJ" character has some final interactions with the SCR team, and Lamar shares some very fitting words from the real BJ written out of his previously unpublished work, The Great Undertow. And CONNECTING it all together in the spirit of the Safety Pin... is a history segment that was patiently waiting for Lamar to discover. On this episode Lamar pays tribute to Washington State ChiropracTIC Pioneer, Dr. HT Hughes and his Chiropractic Diamond Jubilee Commemorative Medal. His entire family of 9 drops in for a short stay, and then of course, Lamar wraps the whole thing with some CHARGING FINAL WORDS that are not to be missed.
