There are a lot of things in this world that I don’t understand. I guess that’s why I started this podcast. You'd think that I would usually be awed and baffled by new technology, but it’s typically stuff that wasn’t made in this millennia that has me looking like that super cute thinking emoji 🤔. Fax machines? Get outta here. Radio broadcasting? Basically witchcraft. Commercial flight? You can talk about drag and lift until you’re blue in the face, but I still can’t wrap my head around a 500 passenger plane when I look at one. And then there are things much, MUCH further back that I still can’t grasp. Today we learn about a really amazing one of those things, acupuncture. Acupuncturist Joyce Kawalchuk will educate us about the 2,000-3,000 year old art.
