Celebrating 1100 Podcasts

Most importantly it’s hard to believe I’m celebrating 1100 podcasts. Time to reach for the highest ground in Celebrating-1100-Podcasts-Bob Davis Podcast 1100.

Campfire Every Night

And it’s even more fun to do this podcast in front of a campfire very late at night.

There’s Something About Eleven Hundred

On the other hand I usually save these celebrations for podcasts in the five hundred increment.

But there’s something about the number eleven hundred.

Pivotal Time

Firstly the last one hundred podcasts have covered a pivotal time in history.

Secondly these last one hundred podcasts have spanned a similar period in my own life.

Depth

So the content in Celebrating-1100-Podcasts-Bob Davis Podcast 1100 has some depth.

Back To The First

For example going back to the first podcasts I did back in 2009.

Changes In Travel Style

In addition the changes in travel style triggered by the inflation which started back at the end of 2021.

Content

Finally eleven hundred podcasts comprise a great deal of content.

More Than Ten Years

That is to say in addition to a radio career now podcasting for more than ten years.

Veteran Content Creator

Makes me a veteran content creator too.

Changes In The World Of Podcasting

Above all there’s been a lot of changes in the world of podcasting.

YouTube Too

Even more with the restart of my own YouTube channel there have been quite a few changes with me too.

Twists And Turns

Certainly it’s been an opportunity to follow the twists and turns driven by the podcast.

Personal Development

And the personal development that’s come with those twists and turns.

Radio Show

For example most of the early podcasts were a continuation of my radio show.

Evolution To The Deep

But very quickly evolved into deeper topics.

Travel and Adventure

Consequently moving out of the political social content toward travel and adventure.

Happier

And as a result much happier as a person.

Bette Davis

In the same vein it was the actress Bette Davis who famously said she never sought money but experience.

Labor Of Love

Similarly this has been a labor of love for me since the beginning.

Back Roads Rule

Moreover I have learned more about people in the United States on the road and on back roads than I ever could have in a radio or podcast studio back home.

Sublime

To sum up the nomad experience has been sublime for many reasons.

Joy Of Two Lanes

And here’s hoping the next 1100 podcasts reflect the joy of the two lane experience.

Goodbye-2022-Hello-2023-Bob Davis Podcast 1083

Goodbye 2022 Hello 2023

Firstly Goodbye 2022 Hello 2023. Cue the fireworks for Goodbye-2022-Hello-2023-Bob Davis Podcast 1083.

Many Thanks

Secondly many people to thank for contributing and sponsoring.

Supporters and Mentors

In addition every year on New Year’s Eve I do a podcast and thank everyone who lent their support to help mentor me way back in 2009 when I started this podcast.

It’s Been A Year

Certainly this has been a year.

That is to say it was difficult.

Maybe It’s Been 2 Years

And it has been difficult going back to 2020!

Major Transition

Above all while I think we’re going through a major transition on many levels New Year’s Eve isn’t the best time to chronicle all that.

New Year’s Eve Is For Thank You’s

In fact New Year’s Eve is great for sending thank you’s.

Look Ahead

And a look ahead for 2023 travel and challenges.

Tough Times

To clarify the elephant in the room has been inflation.

For Nomads Too

Furthermore I’ve done more than a few podcasts about inflation and what it means for the nomad.

Economic Issues

Most importantly economic issues have made 2022 difficult.

Optimistic For 2023

I prefer to remain optimistic for 2023.

Challenges

In the same vein though I think there are economic challenges ahead that can be good and bad for different people around the world and the country

On the other hand this podcast will not be going into economic stuff too deeply.

Parties!

Because we have parties to get ready for!

Artistic Business Challenges

In short there are people to thank.

As well as some talk about running an artistic business.

Change Is An Ongoing Theme

To sum up 2022 has been tough. I’ve had to change how I travel.

Barnstorming

Certainly that means less barnstorming around the country.

Enriched

However my life has been enriched by relationships with other nomads formed because I was forced to stay in one place more than I would have liked.

Grateful

Finally there are things to be grateful for.

Maybe more so because of the kind of year we all had.

In conclusion change seems to have been a theme this year and is certainly on the horizon next year.

Happy New Year

Therefore Happy New Year.

Podcast 428 – Twila Brase

Twila Brase. A hybrid ‘double header’ podcast, from the road. First, a promised airing of the interview with Twila Brase, co founder of Citizens Council For Health Freedom. Twila talks about how Obamacare might or might not be repealed, the health of Minnesota’s ACA Exchange ‘Mnsure’, the future of health insurance, health care under the next presidency and the politics surrounding this issue. This weekend, Mobile Podcast Command headed¬†to Chicago for a high school reunion of sorts. This podcaster is the product of a revolutionary ‘vocational training program’ at one of the Chicago Area’s biggest high schools. At the center of this program was a student run real radio station (and today a TV station and web presence as well). For us, it was the only reason we even bothered to show up everyday at a high school teeming with thousands of students (about a thousand for each year at the time). There was a lot of talk this weekend about how ‘the program’ brought together kids from all different parts of the high school social spectrum, but really, it was a bunch of outcasts from every high school ‘caste’. Oddly enough it was very much like John Hughes’ masterful portrayal of big city high school life “The Breakfast Club”, except this was a radio station, rather than a detention hall. As the podcast says, “I don’t go to reunions, I go to reunions for my high school radio station, because I didn’t graduate from high school, I graduated from the radio station.” So in the second half of this podcast some observations about life, living your life on the air, and how wonderful it is to hang out with people who know you so well from those formative years. Life is certainly no bowl of cherries, as the saying goes, but one wonders whether we really do change from the time we are 16 or 17, to when we go back home for that big reunion. It’s great to be able to celebrate others’ success, life, and remember those who have passed. It’s also really great to get back on the highway, Sponsored by Ryan Plumbing and Heating of Saint Paul, Pride of Homes and Luke Team Real Estate.¬†
