Flu Shot Debate-Fake Boom-Easy Talker-Bob Davis Podcast 791

Turn me loose and I’ll talk up a storm. Every now and then I ditch show prep and freestyle a podcast. Check it out in Flu Shot Debate-Fake Boom-Easy Talker-Bob Davis Podcast 791.

Flu Shot Or Not

These days most people are getting flu shots. I usually forgo the vaccination. Mention this at a party and you’ll ignite a passionate response. Especially relevant is the recent death of a commentator from complications arising from H1N1.

The Boom That Didn’t Boom

Another show stopper is the suggestion our so called ‘economic boom’ isn’t. Moreover analysts are starting to write about the fact that US and world economic growth has been tepid at best.

Plunge Protection Team

In addition there are suggestions the shadowy “Plunge Protection Team” is behind the sudden upswings in the markets. Learn more in Flu Shot Debate-Fake Boom-Easy Talker-Bob Davis Podcast 791.

The Prague Delusion

Truth is many of us can’t tell the difference between opinion and news coverage. Consequently facts can confuse people suffering from the so called Prague Delusion. I’ll tell you about it in Flu Shot Debate-Fake Boom-Easy Talker-Bob Davis Podcast 791.

FaceBook Engagement

Finally every now and then I engage on FaceBook to see what people are thinking. Seems like most of my engagements are with other people’s posts. It’s most noteworthy when an engagement happens on my own podcast page. In Flu Shot Debate-Fake Boom-Easy Talker-Bob Davis Podcast 791 I talk about how I have pulled back from telling people what to think and what to believe.

Persuasion Is The Name Of The Game

In conclusion, so much content these days is focused on persuasion. People telling you what to think and how to think. Consequently it feels like we’re always being pushed in a direction whether we want to go there or not. Certainly podcasts as a medium can do better than cable news and talk radio shouters.

World Survives Eclipse-Western Wisconsin Road Trip-Podcast 742

Sometimes an eclipse is just an eclipse. Friday’s ‘Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse‘ did not destroy the world as predicted. These days someone needs to keep track of the soothsayers! We’ll talk about it in World Survives Eclipse-Western Wisconsin Road Trip-Podcast 742.

Best Economic Growth Ever!

Friday also marked the release of first quarter Gross Domestic Product numbers. To hear the president tell it, 4.1 percent economic growth is historic. Hear my take on the first blush of reporting on the good economic news in World Survives Eclipse-Western Wisconsin Road Trip-Podcast 742.

Does It Matter?

On a desolate lake road in Western Wisconsin at midnight, in the full moonlight, one wonders whether any of that matters anyway! What’s more the silence here in the middle of nowhere is incredible.

No Rules No Prep

I took a short road trip to what we like to call “God’s Country” to talk about organic farming. I’ll take that up in the next podcast. Every now and then I have to do walk and talk podcasts. No rules. No Prep. I call these ‘consolidation podcasts’.

A Midnight Walk Is Good For Making Sense Of It All

Because things seem to happen so frequently, following the news can be a head spinner. I do these walk and talk podcasts, usually at midnight, to try to make sense of it all.

News Flash! World Doesn’t End!

Furthermore last week the boomers were predicting the end of the world after the big eclipse. On top of that we are whipsawed by reactive coverage of the news. Getting subscribers and listeners to the Bob Davis Podcasts on track at the beginning of the week is one of my missions.

Good News Is Good News

Most noteworthy for this podcast is the release of the new economic data. 4.1 percent GDP growth in a single quarter is not unprecedented or even historic. It is good news. The key here is what caused the growth? Moreover is the growth sustainable?

Finding Truth At Midnight

In conclusion this week you may hear a lot of chatter about the economic numbers. Due to partisanship equal amount of chatter passing for ‘analysis’ will be negative and positive. Above all listeners wonder what to look for to find information without partisanship.

Sometimes you find a little bit of truth on a quiet country road in the mist and moonlight!

July Fourth Recovery Weekend-Behind Headlines-Podcast 736

Is this the longest holiday weekend in history? With the fourth in the middle of the week, everyone is off. Time to update listeners and subscribers to cool stories behind the headlines in July Fourth Recovery Weekend-Behind Headlines-Podcast 736.

Trump’s Trade Protection Podcast On The Way

These days it gets harder everyday to keep up with the antics of the Trump Administration. On Friday the president announced additional tariffs on Chinese goods. This calls for a full podcast on trade protection, which is in the works. Meanwhile there are just too many crazy stories out there to ignore.

The Statue of Liberty Is In Las Vegas, right?

Everyone saw video of a naturalized US Citizen trying to climb the statue of liberty over the weekend. Did you hear that the United States Post Office used the statue of liberty in Las Vegas for their new liberty stamp? Listen for details in July Fourth Recovery Weekend-Behind Headlines-Podcast 736.

Why I Don’t Fly And Take The Back Roads

This was a week in which many Americans flew home for a few days for the holiday. If you fly you know it seems like there are more and more seats in the planes. It’s especially relevant that this is one of the top complaints of passengers.

The FAA says they can’t do anything about the number of seats on planes, until it becomes a safety issue. Furthermore, this is why I use Mobile Podcast Command for travel on the back roads because why bother with the stress of air travel unless you have to.

Tiki Torches and Coffee

We’re live from the deck on this perfect July Fourth Weekend podcast. Tiki Torches and coffee. In July Fourth Recovery Weekend-Behind Headlines-Podcast 736 a free wheeling podcast that touches on news behind the headlines as well as anything and everything that comes to mind.

These Days We Need More Sleep

It’s most noteworthy that I am nocturnal, so it doesn’t make any difference to me how much sleep I’m supposed to get.

Apparently modern life is so stressful we’re now being told we need more than eight hours of sleep. My recommendation? Get some sun. You’ll feel better.

Maybe It’s Morgellon’s

I don’t sleep because I lay in bed at night and watch You Tube. You can get lost in the seedy underbelly of America. Furthermore if you get the chance you might be surprised to find tons of videos on You Tube about something called ‘Morgellon’s Disease’. One more thing to worry about!

In conclusion, we still have quite a lot of holiday left to enjoy. This podcast will give you some fun topics to bring up during dinners at the lake and during the pontoon boat ride.
