Authentic Sauna Experience-Bob Davis Podcast 817

Once and awhile you find a gem in the world of podcasting. These days it’s hard to be happy. What if I told you inner peace and happiness is just a sauna away? We’ll do it in Authentic Sauna Experience-Bob Davis Podcast 817.

Leading Sauna Authority

Glenn Auerbach is the leading authority on everything sauna in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, if not Minnesota. Glenn has been building saunas and promoting the sauna experience for years.

Build An Authentic Finnish Sauna

Moreover one thing Glenn is fond of saying is, if you have one hundred square feet in your backyard, you can build an authentic Finnish sauna. In addition Glenn provides research and resources for you at his website and blog here.

If You Want To Be Happy…

Recently the New York Times published a story which ranked individual happiness by country. Finland was number one. The US did not rank very high in this study. The Times’ suggestion? If you want to be happy, move to Finland.

The Secret To Processing Your Life

Auerbach does not agree. He says if Americans would spend time in a sauna the way Finns do, we’d be able to process our lives more efficiently and be happier. The sauna is an excellent tool for processing.

Northern European Immigrants and The Northern US

Finally up here in the far north we love our cold weather climate. With an ethnic history of families who came here from Northern Europe, the similarities between life in the arctic circle and Minnesota can be a little daunting.

Painting A Picture of Pure Natural Beauty

Honestly, Glenn is so good at painting a romantic picture of fjords and islands, and builds a beautiful sauna. But there’s more. In conclusion, Auerbach also knows his stuff.

So we’ll cover the question of whether you should build a sauna, from the authentic experience all the way to the scientifically proven results.

It was a pleasure to have Glenn Auerbach on the podcast. I know I want a sauna for next year’s two months of below zero weather!

Trump-Russia-Comments-Media Firestorm-Bob Davis Podcast 739

President Trump’s comments with Russian President Putin in Helsinki this week kicked off a media firestorm. With stories like this it’s hard to tell which end is up, these days. We’ll talk about it in Trump-Russia-Comments-Media Firestorm-Bob Davis Podcast 739.

A Disaster For The White House

Everything was going “so well” until the President went to Helsinki, Finland to talk to Russian President Putin.

Most noteworthy were comments from Trump that contradicted US intelligence assessments saying Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

Treason?

Were Trump’s comments a mistake or intentional?

Do they constitute ‘treason’? Really?

When You Have To Say Something…

As a podcaster I do not envy people who have to be on the air everyday and react to these kinds of breaking stories. When a president as unpredictable as this one makes news with every tweet and comment what does one say?

When Press Conferences Go Bad

It’s especially relevant to note the Trump-Putin summit did not result in any signed agreements. There was a cordial discussion. It was the joint press conference that kicked off a media rampage of truly biblical proportion in the US. It certainly didn’t help that Trump was unprepared, and proud of it.

We’ll break it down in Trump-Russia-Comments-Media Firestorm-Bob Davis Podcast 739.

Telling Us What To Think

Moreover critics and supporters are busy telling all of us what to think and what will happen next. Either Trump’s a genius or a fool. He’s getting a second term or will be impeached. Academics write several hundred words supporting the so called ‘resistance’ or articulating the president’s policy for him.

Everyone On TV or Radio Is An Expert

Everything Trump does has ‘never been done before’. Former government officials are trotted out to tell us how this is the worst thing that has ever happened. Smarty Pants Professors tell us what Abe Lincoln or Woodrow Wilson would have done.

Now What?

In conclusion, are people really going to take to the streets because Trump upset the Mueller applecart in Helsinki? Is Trump in the process of destroying the Republican party? Are democrats doing the same thing on the left, by attacking everything the president does? Let’s talk about it.

(Editor’s Note: At the beginning of this podcast I say, “until Trump went to Russia”. Of course this is a joke. The president went to Helsinki, Finland for his bilateral meeting with Russian President Putin.)
