Some people turn off their air conditioning as some kind of statement. I just don’t like air conditioning and it doesn’t matter how hot it is. It’s perfectly still outside at midnight. Storms on the way. Time for a walk and talk podcast in Summer Without Air Conditioning-Reading More News-Midnight Walk Talk-Bob Davis Podcast 738.
Back To Reading
These days in my world I feel the need to start reading in depth again. During my talk radio days it wasn’t uncommon to read two to three hundred pages of information a day. Most noteworthy here is podcasting doesn’t require that level of prep. Unfortunately you lose the detail on key issues.
So it’s back to scanning, printing and reading. I feel like I am in summer school!
Two Big Stories
In Summer Without Air Conditioning-Reading More News-Midnight Walk Talk-Bob Davis Podcast 738 we’ll take a look at two big developing stories with an eye toward pointing out how story lines force us to anticipate outcomes rather than waiting until a story plays out.
Telling Us What’s Going To Happen Again
It has been a week since the president slapped tariffs on US trading partners. There has been no measurable economic effect to this date but that doesn’t stop commentators and reporters from telling us how Trump’s actions are already ‘having an economic effect’.
In addition the president’s comments on NATO are generating all kinds of talk. What’s going to happen? Why don’t we wait and see?
No Information Means Shouting Matches Not Conversations
Do you feel confident discussing trade and international defense agreements with strangers? Maybe it’s because you don’t have enough information.
Finally if we’re being fed a constant stream of speculation with no real information, is it any wonder our conversations about issues turn into shouting matches?
Join me on the walk and talk as the storms roll in and we’ll talk it out.
