Lesli's house exploded

Episode 56,  Jul 17, 2020, 07:00 AM

Lesli lives in Nashville, Tennessee. When Nashville was having heavy rains and flooding, there was a day when Lesli was stranded at her house with a friend and two small dogs. There was an explosion, and they probably wouldn’t have survived – except for the help of a stranger on a jet ski.

There’s something that you and I do every day, all day. We make decisions. That’s something that we literally do all day.

In fact, some sources say the average person makes 35,000 decisions every day. I don’t know how accurate that number is, but I’m sure it’s a lot. Most of them we don’t really even think about consciously. Which shoe to put on first, how much toothpaste to put on the toothbrush, which checkout line at the grocery store – those are all kind of subconscious.

The bigger decisions we do think about – what to have for lunch, what kind of car do I buy, those are more deliberate. You even make a choice about what podcast you want to listen to – and I’m happy to tell you right now, when you choose this podcast, you have made the right choice!

But what if you were suddenly in an emergency situation, and you didn’t know if you were going to make it out alive, and you were faced with making the decision of how you prefer to die?

That’s the spot Lesli found herself in one day. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee, and she’s been through a pretty incredible experience. She survived, thanks to a couple of men named Bill – one was her friend, and the other was a stranger. And you’re about to hear her tell me what happened.

It was crazy enough that she was invited to Ellen’s show to talk about it.

And be sure to hang around til the end, because after our conversation I’ll have a sneak preview of the new bonus episode, Raw Audio #2, which are 911 audio stories and exclusive content, and it’s live and available right now for patrons of the podcast.
