Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for March 10, 2019 is: newspeak \NOO-speek\ noun, often capitalized : propagandistic language marked by euphemism, circumlocution, and the inversion of customary meanings Examples: "Remember that in 1984, totalitarian newspeakÂ is created not through elaborate sentences and jargon, but through cutting words out of the dictionary and simplifying grammar. Clear, transparent writing can be used for propaganda purposes as easily as can convoluted proseâ€”and maybe even more easily." â€” Noah Berlatsky, The Chronicle of Higher Education, 16 July 2011 "He'd lost his birthplace after the Yalta agreement, when his native region was incorporated into the Soviet Union. Since his family was Polish, they decided to join thousands of other 'repatriates' and re-settle in the area in Poland that the communists' newspeak labeled 'the Recovered Territories.'"Â â€” Ewa Hryniewicz-Yarbrough, American Scholar, Summer 2010 Did you know? The term newspeak was coined by George Orwell in his 1949 anti-utopian novel 1984. In Orwell's fictional totalitarian state, Newspeak was a language favored by the minions of Big Brother and, in Orwell's words, "designed to diminish the range of thought." Newspeak was characterized by the elimination or alteration of certain words, the substitution of one word for another, the interchangeability of parts of speech, and the creation of words for political purposes. The word has caught on in general use to refer to confusing or deceptive bureaucratic jargon.

The semiofficial trailer!
This trailer really sets the tone and shows the diversity and versatility of my show. Itâ€™s serious, thought provoking, & funny. Itâ€™s also a reflection of what Iâ€™m going through finding myself and that journey. If you notice at the end itâ€™s â€œwho is, who is, who isâ€... because at the end of the day, who are you?On my show, I talk about life, self-awareness, esoterica, and other mysteries in the world. I have had artists, authors, conspiracy theorists, and other individuals on. My goal with making my podcast is to bring some knowledge that perhaps you did not have before listening to my show. If I have someone share an experience that they have had that maybe you would never experience, you can in a way experience that as well through the person telling their story. Some topics will be more serious than others but at the end of the day, that is my goal. I am enjoying the process and I am also using it to grow as a person. For me, this goes deeper than just making a podcast. It is a learning experience.
