The Lightning Round Podcast
The Lightning Round Podcast is a series of short nuggets drawn from our Something Significant Podcast. Specifically the “Lightning Round”. A quick fire back-and-forth with our guest with their gut reactions to some of our favorite quote.
You see, words matter. Our perception of words change when they are used with other words. The emotions that words can evoke has a power. Words have the power to make us Happy!
Throughout time a lot of great thought has gone into some every ordinary words that have created some extraordinary quotes. These quotes are by thought leaders, authors, gurus, public figures, even song writers.
Each episode of the Something Significant Podcast contains a 3 to 5 minute segement that features these quote and we ask our guests to just give us their knee jerk reactions to them.
These reactions are sometimes serious, sometimes sad, and sometimes hilarious. But they are always thought provoking and that is why we Love this segment and thought it needed its own space.
