Podcasting In A World Of Propaganda

I stay up all night. Especially these days. Time for a walk and talk podcast about podcasting. Learn more in Podcasting-In-Propaganda-Maelstrom-Bob Davis Podcast 921.

Podcasting

First of all I don’t often talk about podcasting. Above all this medium has taken me from one place to another in life.

Propaganda

Especially relevant? I don’t think I have ever seen amount of propaganda we’re exposed to now.

Anxiety and Negative Thoughts

In addition new research shows people in the United States are experiencing high levels of anxiety and negative thoughts.

Trauma

To hear a my podcast about the effects of trauma click here.

Uncertainty Rules

Also I think our biggest problem is the not knowing outcomes.

Walking and Talking Is Good

Consequently it’s always good to do a walk and talk.

Content Creators Struggling

My thoughts as a content creator are especially relevant.

Wading Through Crap

Even more how do content creators thread our way through unprecedented levels of propaganda.

Won’t Tell You What To Think

Furthermore I refuse to tell subscribers and listeners what to think.

Doing Our Homework To Avoid Mass Manipulation

I’ve explained how we can do our own homework. In addition I’ve shown how social media can be used for mass manipulation.

Won’t Follow The Audience’s Lead

Certainly I could tell audiences what they want to hear. Everyone else does, right?

Deeper Into The Darkness

To detail every little rift and latest conspiracy or story making headlines only takes us deeper into the darkness

Leading Rather Than Following

In Podcasting-In-Propaganda-Maelstrom-Bob Davis Podcast 921 I give you two unexpected examples of people who refused to follow their audiences and how they became leaders.

How Do We Get Out Of This Mess?

Finally it seems to me what we need is a way to start thinking how we’re going to get out of this mess we’re in.

Fussin’ and Fighting Won’t Cut It

Fighting about the latest outrage only takes us deeper into the darkness.

Election2020-Pete-Buttigieg-Jefferson-Iowa-Bob Davis-Podcast-898

Just Call Him Mayor Pete

First of all I don’t think too many people can pronounce his name. Since he’s the former Mayor of South Bend a simple ‘Mayor Pete’ will do. Check it out in Election2020-Pete-Buttigieg-Jefferson-Iowa-Bob Davis-Podcast-898.

Feverish Campaigning

Certainly all the candidates are feverishly campaigning. It’s just hours until caucus time here in Iowa. Pete Buttigieg is no exception.

Running All Over Iowa

I’m running into familiar faces. Going from from Fairfield to Cedar Rapids and Iowa City. Then back to DesMoines. Out to Council Bluffs or Sioux City. Reporters. Digital Media people. Campaign workers.

Everyone’s Tired

Furthermore candidates and staff are tired. As I noted on the podcast with Tom Steyer, some of the candidates like to talk.

Pulled Together and Concise

Therefore it’s unusual for a candidate to do a presentation that’s concise. Even more, starting and ending on time.

Get In, Get Back Out

Moreover Buttigieg engages an audience of students, young volunteers and Jefferson residents sparingly. Hitting the issues. Answering questions. Taking selfies. Heading out to the next event.

Not Much Editing With Pete

The mission of these podcasts is to faithfully recreate the event. Due to this I often have to do a lot of editing. Not with Mayor Pete. As a result I can say Election2020-Pete-Buttigieg-Jefferson-Iowa-Bob Davis-Podcast-898 really does take you inside an event.

Oh Yeah! There’s Red Meat

Finally I find it necessary to again state that my democrat friends will enjoy this podcast a lot more than my republican friends.

Put On Headphones. Walk Through The Event

Democrats can use these podcasts to make their caucus decisions. Republicans might want to hear what democrats are actually saying in 2020, rather than accepting what someone else says their saying.

America’s-Road-To-Oblivion-Bob Davis Podcast 888

Is Populism The Road To Oblivion?

First of all, I’ll say it if no one else will. I think our politics is too focused on ‘the little guy’. Is populism the road to oblivion for us? Learn more in  America’s-Road-To-Oblivion-Bob Davis Podcast 888.

What’s Populism?

What is Populism? Where did it come from? I’ll tell you in this podcast.

Give The People What They Want, Right?

Certainly populism as a tactic does not have a cohesive ideology. I will point out it’s not about addressing specific issues. It’s about giving the people what they want.

Business As Usual Especially When They Say They It Won’t Be

Moreover I think politicians playing to the cheap seats risk making very bad decisions. Finally, it’s not just politicians.

Voting Against Yourself

It’s especially relevant to remember voters often make choices against their own best interests.

Democrats AND Republicans

Furthermore populism doesn’t call one of the two parties ‘home’. Populism is present in both party’s ‘business as usual’ politicians.

That’s Right…Populism

Consequently when democrats promise free basic incomes, free education and free health insurance. Or when republicans promise trade policies to protect coal miners, steel workers and farmers. It’s all the same. Populism.

A More Powerful Government

Meanwhile it sure seems like this trend leads to a more dangerously powerful and expensive government. Learn more in America’s-Road-To-Oblivion-Bob Davis Podcast 888.

Banana Republic Or Rome?

Due to masses lining up with their hands out, blaming capitalism or the deep state for all their problems we’re on the road to oblivion. We might end up banana republic, joining the other dead societies in history. Hence, Oblivion.

Don’t Hold Your Breath

Therefore I offer a small quiet voice of protest. Will it get fixed? Not anytime soon I am afraid.

Sorry but…

This just has to run its course.

(Editor’s Note: I refer to William Jennings Bryan as Wilson’s ‘former’ Secretary of State when discussing the election of 1896. Obviously Jennings became Secretary of State much later.)
