From the Nashville Studios of the XBHS Radio Network, I am Skip Orem, and this is The Anchor Pointe podcast. Hi, everybody. Welcome to the May 12, 2023 episode of The Anchor Pointe Podcast. I'm Skip Orem recording this final episode of season one of The Anchor Pointe Podcast at the XBHS Radio studios here on Printers Alley in Nashville, Tennessee.
And first off today, thanks to all of you who took the time to email me about last week's guided meditation episode. And everybody, if you have not had an opportunity to listen to that episode, it's available in The Anchor Pointe Podcast feed and then also at website on the Audioburst page. And yes, this is the final episode of Anchor Pointe before we take our summer break. And then after our summer break, a new season of The Anchor Pointe Podcast will begin on Friday, September 22nd, with new season two episodes released every other Friday.

Next season's Anchor Pointe podcasts are going to have a couple of exciting new changes. First and probably most important, Anchor Pointe's going to remain a faith and fitness podcast, helping all of us baby boomers increase our faith, stay fit, stay healthy, stay happy, and live a long life. That'll continue to be the overriding mission of The Anchor Pointe Podcast, and we're going to continue to feature important content in all of the seven elements of the Anchor Pointe disease-fighting and fitness model, faith, diet, exercise, attitude, guided meditation, music and research. And new beginning with the new episodes in September, thinking about exploring and talking about our faith will play an even larger part in each episode. Perhaps as much as half of each week's podcast next season will be devoted to faith.
And this other cool change, I'll be adding a new segment, especially for us older folks, baby boomers. Interesting stories from back in the '50s and '60s, focusing on our history, music and the arts. The new segment will be called Recollections, and I'm going to preview one of those new recollections segments a little later in today's episode. And for next season, because I want to make sure that each episode has valuable content about our faith, our fitness, our overall health, because of that, we're going to change the podcast release schedule to have a new episode released every two weeks. That new schedule of an episode dropping every two weeks will help me ensure that every episode of Anchor Pointe has new and meaningful content. Three significant changes for next season. Faith gets an upgrade. The Recollections segment. And new episodes will drop every two weeks, beginning on September 22, 2023.
All right. Let's talk about today's episode. Our Medical News for Seniors segment today will feature information on dealing with those medications that most of us take every day. And as I mentioned, later in the podcast today, I'm going to do a preview of the new Reflections segment, and we'll also talk today about preventing falls, one of the leading causes of injuries among us baby boomers. And then for a couple of minutes later in the podcast, Messages in the Bible.
