#1 ANEW time! YES! That is right, starting Saturday January 6th, 2018 ANEW podcast will air at 3 pm EST. This is so we don't conflict with other programs we all enjoy watching on the first day of the weekend.
2017 was the creation of ANEW podcast. It was a #1 year and the beginning of ANEW journey for me. I listened and learned as a Host and Producer that in a world of chaos there is still good in the world. Good people that have worked hard to get where they are in the world today. They are full of inspiration and have made a mark in the lives of others. From their careers, to their families and what they have overcome and accomplished and as the Host of ANEW podcast, I want to go into 2018 with a bang and bring many more ANEW guest that will continue to inspire and bring hope to people across the world on a global level.
#2 There will be a few surprises "spring up" ....so stay tuned!
