Not-Defending-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1081

Not Defending Nomad Life

Most importantly I am not defending nomad life in this podcast. Some people think that is what I do. My response is here in Not-Defending-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1081.

Constructive Criticism

Firstly I’ve learned once in a while you have to accept constructive criticism.

Secondly a friend recently said the podcasts make him sad because I defend nomad life too much.

Content Review

Therefore I reviewed my recent content.

And I couldn’t disagree more.

Introspective Podcast

Above all in this introspective podcast I talk about the nomad experience.

Perspective

However I put this life in perspective.

Variety

Furthermore in my review of content I concluded there’s enough variety.

Writing Project

In addition I talk about a writing project in Not-Defending-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1081.

Attention and Energy

Specifically writing about difficult subjects requires a great deal of attention and energy.

Top Of Mind

So the podcasts aren’t necessarily top of mind every day.

What Needs To Be Said

On the other hand there are few things I feel need to be said.

Complicated

To clarify I like complicated subjects.

As a result my podcasts about the current economy make me happy.

Even more recent podcasts about winter celebrations and their value to our humanity also make me happy.

Moreover there’s always content about life experience.

Examples Here

For example here, and here and here.

No Back Slapping

In short I don’t do back slapping inside humor types of podcasts

No Boring Interviews

Similarly my experience has been most people don’t make good interview subjects.

And so called experts usually regurgitate the stuff they say everywhere else.

No Experts

Finally The Bob Davis Podcasts are about my experiences and my internal reactions to those experiences.

Travel

Further the podcasts also include subject matter about my travels.

People Places and Things

That is to say people I’ve met, places I’ve been and things that have happened.

But fair criticism is accepted.

Once a Broadcaster Always A Broadcaster

To sum up I think former broadcasters tend to be more critical. It’s okay. It goes with the territory.

Updates Loose Ends and Clarifications

Firstly from time to time I do updates clarifications and tie up loose ends. Find out why in Updates-Loose-Ends-Clarifications-Bob Davis Podcast 1069.

Dream World

Secondly nomad life is a dream world.

Sailing On The Sea

That is to say this life is more like sailing between islands.

Doesn’t Matter What Day It Is

Certainly when you’re out on the water you don’t care what day it is.

Series

Because I have been doing podcasts on the inflation and economic issues facing nomads since the beginning of 2022 they have become kind of a series.

Fighting Complex Topics

And every now and then I find myself struggling with the complexities and left brain nature of finance and economics.

Dreamy Nomad Life

Even more due to the dreamy nature of nomad life.

The Great Basin

So I am up in the mountains above The Great Basin.

Food and Fuel Prices

Considering the intensity of food and fuel prices this is a perfect time and place to make some corrections updates and clarifications about these issues from podcast 1068.

Taking A Pause

However as usual it is also time to take a pause.

Sounds Of The Night

Listen to the night sounds.

Sundown In The Mountains

Enjoy the sundown and late evening dusk here at Great Basin National Park.

Talk About Prices

But it’s also a perfect time to clarify why I believe prices will continue to go down.

Slow Down Coming

Moreover why I think we’re headed for a major economic slow down in the near future.

Complex

Finally I will warn listeners the second half of this podcast might feel little complex.

No Political Rhetoric

On the other hand you usually don’t find these explanations free of political rhetoric in most places.

Cheaper Food and Fuel

Above all my goal is to give hope to fellow nomads rooting for cheaper food and fuel.

Simplify

In addition my goal is to try and simplify a bit of the talk about the economy.

Information You Can Use

Therefore we’ll have some information we can use.

What To Look For

In the same vein at least we will know what to look for in coming weeks to confirm some of my conclusions in Updates-Loose-Ends-Clarifications-Bob Davis Podcast 1069.

Last Economic Podcast For Awhile

To sum up this will be the last so called economic podcast I’ll do for awhile.

Full Travel Vibe…Next

So we’ll be back to the full travel vibe until we hit another turning point.

Sheer-Joy-Of-GoGoGo-Bob Davis Podcast 1052

Sheer Joy Of GoGoGoGo

Firstly been doing podcasts lately on Nomad Backlash so it’s time to talk about the Sheer Joy of GoGoGo. Let’s get into it in Sheer-Joy-Of-GoGoGo-Bob Davis Podcast 1052.

Patron Saint Of Nomads

Secondly I think it’s fair to day that Jack Kerouac is the patron saint of the nomad experience.

On The Road

And in keeping with the sentiment of ‘On The Road’ I will not call it the nomad ‘movement’.

Above all I read ‘On The Road’ when I was still in my teens.

Wanderlust Forever

Moreover I wonder if the book influenced me or if wanderlust was a part of my soul even then.

American West Different Then

Even more when the beat generation had its romance with the American West I should think the texture and tone of the people and the land was considerably different in the late 1940’s.

Than These Days

Most importantly these days we’re exhorted to ‘subscribe’ and ‘like’.

To lend our sovereignty to prepacked ‘movements’.

Because that’s what you do today.

Social Media Oppresses

Most importantly this desire for relevance through social media is one of the things that makes life so oppressive.

Cutting Loose

Therefore the ongoing and burgeoning romance with cutting loose.

Hitting the road.

That is to say living in the now.

No yesterday or tomorrow. Just Sheer-Joy-Of-GoGoGo-Bob Davis Podcast 1052.

Quest For Authenticity

Meanwhile there is this great question of authenticity.

For example if you spend anytime on certain so called ‘business’ social media platforms these days ‘authenticity’ seems to be the most sought after virtue.

One Day At A Time Is Good Enough

After that on the road there is a sense of finding yourself if you can live one day at a time.

Good Time To Talk

In addition I think this is a good time to talk about this quest.

And the fact that achieving this sense of authenticity seems so difficult for some.

The Flow Is Out Here

On the other hand out here on the road it seems to just flow.

Sheer Joy

Further this is the sheer joy of going and going and going.

First Year

Finally in this podcast I talk a little about my first year on the road.

Roaring across the landscape coast to coast and border to border.

And More

And how it’s been since then.

A Beat Poet Leaves A Gift

But most importantly what an incredible gift Kerouac left us without ever intending to wanting to be a ‘movement’.

Questions

To sum up let’s ask some questions about our own quests.

What’s we’re pushing to realize out here on the two lane roads of America.
