Bad-Service-Is-Not-Service-Bob Davis Podcast 1107

Bad Service Is Not Service

Significantly American business claims great service but Bad Service Is Not Service. And these days bad service is what we get most of the time. Got a great story to tell in Bad-Service-Is-Not-Service-Bob Davis Podcast 1107.


As a matter of fact a recent debacle between me and my Podcast Hosting Service is a great illustration.


Because I have so much data on this page I ran afoul of an algorithm.

Help Desk No Help

As a result no amount of working with the so called ‘help desk’ was going to alleviate the problem.

Furthermore in a painful episode that lasted over a recent two week period I learned one of America’s supposedly great service companies is not.

To enumerate here would take paragraphs.


To explain my web developer and I spent two Sundays mystified at the byzantine rules and procedures.


Procedures which on the negative side don’t seem to have any purpose.

One Hand

Even more one hand knows not what the other is doing.

No Authority

And getting to someone with authority was nearly impossible.

Detail are included in Bad-Service-Is-Not-Service-Bob Davis Podcast 1107 as an illustration.

American Business Not In As Good Shape As They Think

In effect to point out that American Businesses are not worth what they think they are.

Hours On The Phone

Certainly I am not the only one who has noticed that all things considered consumers spend hours on the phone and on line trying to solve problems the companies create themselves.


Thereafter we hear excuses.

Chiefly the recent pandemic…and supply problems.

Promoting “Kick Ass” Service

However they still promote “Kick Ass” service.

No Service

But they’re not delivering any service at all.

Whiners Not Winners

Finally we hear American Business cry in pain at every interest rate increase.

Without reservation they blame the government…

Or the Federal Reserve.


Yet they continue to deteriorate in terms of service.

Customer Has To Solve The Problem

In conclusion it was left to my web developer and I to solve the problem for the most part.

And we did.

Back Where We Started After One Thousand Dollars

After more than a thousand dollars we ended up where we started out with two thirds less content on the site.

No Reason

For no reason.

Making Silk…

With this in mind I’ve long considered removing much of the content prior to my travel and nomad podcast.

In conclusion it’s a new day. I’ll explain in the podcast.

Sundown-Summer-Cloudburst-Bob Davis Podcast 1106

Sundown-Summer-Cloudburst-Bob Davis Podcast 1106

A sundown summer cloudburst gives me a chance to reflect on the nature of time and space. Complete story in Sundown-Summer-Cloudburst-Bob Davis Podcast 1106.

Questions About Nomad Life

Firstly I get a lot of questions about my life as a nomad.

Certainly long time listeners have heard this before.

New Wrinkle

But Sundown-Summer-Cloudburst-Bob Davis Podcast 1106 contains a new wrinkle.

Introspection Summer

That is to say this summer has been a time of introspection.

Therefore I find myself often reviewing my decision to go on the road.



As much as I engage in these flights of fancy there’s no question of my commitment to this lifestyle.

Secondly as the rain falls down on the roof of Mobile Podcast Command…

Time and Space

I discovered the relationship between time and space.

Another key point involves my own work history.

And discovering other entertainers and media people have had a similar experience.

Build Up Cool Down

Especially the build up to do a show and the cool down time necessary afterward.

In addition how much time we spend working on our craft whatever it might be.

Indeed I found day after day of preparation and shows left little time for cool down back in the day.

Forgotten Intensity

Even more years of this kind of intensity is something I had forgotten.

Until my first year of nomad travel.

Ping Ponging

Undeniably and unabashedly ping ponging back and forth across the United States.

Of course loving every minute.

Unlike that first year subsequent years have seen me slow down and take my time.

Hence discovering this concept of time and space.

Key Life Decisions

With this in mind decisions we make for ourselves can seem selfish or even crazy.

It’s only afterward the benefits become clearer.

And on balance I think a lot of the introspection this summer is tied to that day I decided to go.

Eventually I carved out the time.

Only afterward realizing it was also space.

No Orthodox Lifestyle

Finally I never wanted to live a so called orthodox lifestyle.

Road and Experience

With this intention came the road and experience.

And time.

Peak-Summer-Bob Davis Podcast 1105

Peak Summer

Every summer there’s a point in time I call Peak Summer. This year for Peak Summer I feel like sharing some sounds and memories in Peak-Summer-Bob Davis Podcast 1105.

Only In A Podcast

With this in mind I’d like to say this is something one can only do in the Podcast format.

To enumerate these days I have reactivated my YouTube Channel available here.

This Won’t Work On Video

I’d like to point out I could not do a video feature like this in the video format.

Or a video form of this podcast that would do the topic justice.


All things considered I started with sound.

Summer Sound

For example every year at the peak of winter I do a Summer Sounds podcast.

When I produce these summer sounds podcasts they are constructed with several tracks of ambient audio from peak summer.

Secondly I love sound.


And sound generally evokes emotions and memories.

Therefore this podcast features some great summer sounds…

And memories.


It’s important to realize most of the time summer sounds dredge up childhood memories.

Hoping To Trigger Your Childhood Summer Memories

So I’ll relate a few in the hopes your own halcyon memories will be triggered.

Try Headphones

In the same fashion I should recommend headphones.

But only if you can’t fully hear the sound behind the voice in Peak-Summer-Bob Davis Podcast 1105.

Pure Freedom Summers

Above all in childhood we had six or seven weeks of pure freedom every summer.

In spite of whatever else was going on these were the only moments of pure freedom many of us have experienced in our lives since.

All in all we can be sad about that…

Or accept the responsibilities of adult life.

Vacation From Today’s Tense Times

However there’s nothing like sound and memories to take a brief vacation from adult life.

For a brief moment in any event.

2023 Summer

In truth so far the summer of 2023 has been one of the best.

Even more in a few weeks the adventure will continue as I head to New England.

And then back to the South West in September.

Yes I Love Summer

I summary of course I love summer.

And Love Sharing It

And I love sharing it with listeners.
