New Future Dead Ahead

First of all no one likes lock downs, wearing masks or worrying about what comes next. Even so we have caught a glimpse of a the future. Working from home. Video conferencing. Pivoting to on line services. There’s a new future dead ahead. Learn more in New-Epoch-Dead-Ahead-Bob Davis Podcast 926.

End Of An Era

I’ve already suggested we’re on the cusp of major change. Even more the end of an era.

Triggers Of Change Present Before The Pandemic

Moreover the triggers of change were already in place before the Corona Virus Pandemic.

Things To Think About

What stays? How will things change? I’ll give you some things to think about in New-Epoch-Dead-Ahead-Bob Davis Podcast 926.

Define Epoch

Especially relevant is the definition of the word epoch.

Long And Distinct Period

The word Epoch is a long and distinct period of history with a particular feature or characteristic.

The End Of A Long Arc

I personally think we’re at the end of a much longer arc.

Final Breaths Of Industrial Revolution

We’re living through the dying breaths of the industrial revolution which started in Britain at the end of the 1700’s, peaked in the 1950’s and 60’s.

Age Of Technology

Above all what’s coming is an age of technology which took its first breaths in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s, and is now growing into its chaotic adolescence.

Losing Cultural Landmarks

When an epoch ends we have no cultural, economic or cultural landmarks.

Fasten Your Seatbelts

Finally my sense is that previous periods of change will pale in comparison to what we have just begun to go through, even though we’ve had plenty of warning.

Are We Ready For Prime Time? Not Even Close

I’ve often said we, our leaders and our systems are ill equipped to deal with this change.

When Did The New World Emerge?

In conclusion somewhere along the line the old world began to fade and the new emerged.

Good Things and Bad Things

We’ve seen a preview of the bad things and the good things to come. Let’s think about some of the good things and the future in New-Epoch-Dead-Ahead-Bob Davis Podcast 926.

Election2020-Tom-Steyer-Big-Plans-Bob Davis Podcast 897

Lots Of Ideas And Plans

First of all Tom Steyer is an activist. Second he is a billionaire. He’s running for president and he has a lot of ideas and plans. He’ll tell you about them in Election2020-Tom-Steyer-Big-Plans-Bob Davis Podcast 897.

Democrat Patterns Emerging

These days after a few days on the campaign trail you start to see and hear patterns in all the speeches candidates make. Steyer is no exception. The main theme? President Donald Trump.

Political Red Meat

Certainly Iowans coming out to hear these speeches want political red meat. They’re getting it from Steyer.

Racist! Criminal! Incompetent!

Most noteworthy quotes from Steyer include comparing the republican administration to the holocaust. Trump’s a racist. Incompetent. A criminal.

Go Ahead…Talk

In contrast to cheap talk though, Steyer has put his money where his mouth is for years. NextGen Climate and most recently Need To Impeach have mobilized millions.

Organize Highest Democrat Turn Out Ever

Furthermore Steyer intends to use experience with NextGen America and Need To Impeach to deliver the what he says will be the highest democratic turn out in history. Moreover he says democrats will win big in 2020. He’ll tell you all about it in Election2020-Tom-Steyer-Big-Plans-Bob Davis Podcast 897.

Smart and Detailed

Especially relevant here is the fact that Steyer is smart and detailed. Consequently he talks. A. Lot. That means editing down hours of speaking and questions from the audience into a capsulized version of what actually went down.

Political Coverage True To What Went Down

Furthermore my intention is to take podcast listeners into these events with no judgements. I sincerely hope I was able to do this with Steyer. In addition, this time I talked to some of the people at the event.

Everyone Listen…Republicans Too

In conclusion I am sure my democrat friends will love most of what Steyer has to say. Republicans not so much in contrast. Still, I hope my republican friends can listen to understand the issues.

Actionable Proposals

Above all, despite the red meat, I sense most of the actionable proposals are surprisingly moderate. Even for Tom Steyer. That should concern republicans, because those kinds of ideas are not easily dismissed.

Election2020-Amy-Klobuchar-DesMoines-Bob Davis Podcast 896

Jury Duty All Week, Campaigning All Weekend

First of all US Senators are the jury in the Impeachment trial of the president. Or so some of them say. So weekends in Iowa are for campaigning. Learn more in Election2020-Amy-Klobuchar-DesMoines-Bob Davis Podcast 896.

How Candidates Interact

Moreover these podcasts give listeners a sense of how candidates are interacting with potential caucus goers.

Senior Senator

Especially relevant? Klobuchar’s status as a senior Senator and moderate Democrat, running in a field of progressives.

Practical Progressive

She calls herself a ‘practical progressive‘.

Lots Of Talk

Certainly politicians talk a lot. Some of these events seem to go on forever.

Editing and Accurate Representation of Events

Due to this circumstance I have to edit. Hopefully these podcasts will be accurate representations of these events.

Taking You Inside Events So wear Headphones

Above all the effort is to take you inside an event so you can experience it. In addition with shorter length podcasts you’ll get an impression of as many candidates as I can record before caucus night!

Trump Is A Big Part Of Campaign

Seems like all the democratic candidates want to talk about the impeachment. They all talk a lot about the President.

Republicans Take Note

Because of this republican leaning listeners and Trumpers may find it difficult to listen all the way through.

Organization and Pivot Counties

However one of my takeaways already is the depth of democrat arguments and the detail of their proposed agendas, should they become president. Even more the level of organization I am seeing here.

Listen and Learn

Finally republicans and Trumpers would be well advised to listen to these arguments and ideas.

Democrat Strategy

In conclusion one thing is sure to be a factor in 2020. Democrats are targeting pivot counties here in Iowa in preparation for a national strategy along those lines later in the campaigns.

Testing Ideas and Arguments For Campaigning This Fall

Therefore it might be a good idea to hear and understand the arguments they’ll use.

Some of them are pretty good.
