  • Episode 171 — FINALE SHOW — Closing the Safety Pin “ter to TOR” — Graduation, Celebration, and Connection — featuring Esteb, Dubel, Kelly, Flannery, Jones, Waters, BJ, EPOC Underground, and Gold


    While some may remember it as the episode that holds the World's Record for the LONGEST Chiropractic Podcast EVER Recorded (7 hours, 41 minutes, and 52 seconds), for others the Finale Episode of Spinal Column Radio memorializes a TRANSFORMATION — a transformation they have witnessed in themselves when it comes to chiropracTIC. Because of the content shared on SCR, they — like the host, Dr. Thomas Lamar — have experienced a "shift." For in their regular listening, they have witnessed in themselves a CHANGE — a change in how they now THINK, TEACH, and PREACH chiropractic. The "safety pin" between their ears has clicked into position and a "CONNECTION" has been made. They now GET the Big Idea. They now GET chiropracTIC and see themselves as chiropracTORs. They have undergone "The ter to TOR Evolution." Have YOU? Join Dr. Thomas Lamar (and Logan) for a final episode that not only recognizes this "shift" with Graduation and Celebration, but CONNECTS it all together with the SAFETY PIN.

  • Episode 160 — Telling THE Story and Telling MY Story as I Talk The TIC to the Students at LACC’s First Ever Philosophy of Chiropractic Course


    BJ Palmer defined chiropractic as a philosophy, science, and art of things natural. Listeners of this show know that I graduated from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1995 (now part of the Southern California University of Health Sciences). When I was attending, the LACC curriculum was very strong in the science aspect and we definitely were given the tools to develop the art... but, unfortunately, as with many chiropractic colleges today, it was sorely deficient in the philosophy. Philosophy was virtually non-existent. Extra effort was required on the part of the student to seek it out. Needless to say, it was not presented at the main watering trough. I'm happy to report, however, that after 102 years the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic has launched its first Philosophy of Chiropractic course. Lead instructor, Dr. Mark Losack, my former classmate, tapped me (and a number of other chiropracTORs) on the shoulder to be a guest presenter for this inaugural class offering. To which I eagerly ac

  • Episode 155 — Branding the ChiropracTOR for the Bigger Message of ChiropracTIC: Interviews with Chiropractic United Podcast, pre-ChiropracTIC Student Patrick Dunphy, DC-2B Brett Jones, and more! [Plus Special Report: Inside the DE Scene — Paying Homage to


    "Early to bed. Early to rise. Work like hell and ADVERTISE!" These words from our profession's developer still echo throughout chiropractic. From the beginning, we chiropractors have been avid marketers — we've had to for our very survival. It's always been a sink or swim situation. And it will continue to be this way until our individual advertising and marketing efforts rise above the level of promotion-for-self. The message that we promote must be BIGGER than ourselves; it needs to go beyond that of self-promotion. Never in history have we had the opportunity like we do now to tell our story in a way that allows us to not only touch our community, but the whole world at the same time. The Internet gives us this ability. And so through mediums such as blogs, videos, podcasts, graphics, and social media, we can now begin to brand ourselves as chiropracTORs — not for ourselves — but for chiropracTIC. Because it is through this type of "bigger than self" promotion that we can truly begin affect change in
