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!

Artistic Authenticity-Radio Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 787

An old picture and a lunch sparked my thoughts for Artistic Authenticity-Radio Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 787. These days the word ‘authentic‘ is often used to describe people who seem real. How does ‘authenticity’ translate to creative work?

Do You Believe What You Say?

Especially relevant, my friend wondered if I “believed the things” I say “on the radio and in podcasts?“.

It’s Complicated

First of all yes. Second, it’s complicated. How can you be creative and ‘real’? Learn more in Artistic Authenticity-Radio Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 787.

What’s ‘Being Authentic’?

What does ‘being authentic’ mean? Do a little research and you’ll find plenty of articles about ‘being authentic’. Most noteworthy is this list of attributes for authentic and inauthentic people.

Starts With Radio

As a result of all these lists of attributes for actually being authentic I realized my focus is about being authentic or real in my creative efforts.

Above all I am a radio guy. When I started in radio I couldn’t get enough of the ways and means and the lore of the business

Creative Freedom

Moroever in those days we were working in the ruins of faded AM stations. Therefore unlike radio today we had a lot of creative freedom.  Find out more in Artistic Authenticity-Radio Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 787.

Consequently we learned our business by doing. Especially relevant we also learned by imitating. Above all I’d always tried to be real when I was on the radio. When I got better at radio as a craft I returned to the idea of actually being real and natural.

Being Real

After many jobs and now as a podcaster, one thing remained key for me. Being real. Check out Artistic Authenticity-Radio Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 787.

Podcasting Formats and the Cutting Room Floor

Therefore, as a result of experience and commitment, authenticity seems like it is easier. However there is always something left on the cutting room floor. Certainly even in podcasting.

Authentic Isn’t As Easy As It Looks

In conclusion Artistic Authenticity-Radio Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 787 is a bit of a tutorial for podcasters, radio people and performers. Being real isn’t as easy as it looks. 

Years Of Work

Consequently when we see a performance by a master we should remember it probably took years to create that authenticity within the medium

News Loop-Greater Insights-Enjoy Life-Podcast 763

I was a little surprised by great response to my ‘Who’s Running The Country’ podcast. Lots of positive comments made me realize how unusual it is for commentators these days to break the news cycle. I talk about that in News Loop-Greater Insights-Enjoy Life-Podcast 763.

Mainstream Media In A Playback Loop

How does media work today? Lurid Clickbait Headlines. Saying the same thing again and again. Predicting the future.

Telling Us What’s Going To Happen

Most noteworthy? It’s like they’re all talking to each other and not the audience. Moreover the obsession with telling us “what’s going to happen” gets in the way of the facts.

Never Watch

I have a ‘system’ to deal with this kind of media. Never watch TV News. Never watch the cable channels. Don’t listen to talk radio. I believe when we read we understand more.

Loose Moorings?

Consequently I feel insulated from nonsense. Furthermore my moorings aren’t coming loose from the constant hot air about protests and speechifying. Find out how and why in News Loop-Greater Insights-Enjoy Life-Podcast 763.

Magpies On The Line

Finally whether a confirmation fight effects democrats or republicans negatively depends on who votes. We will find out in less than a month. Is it possible to wait a mere thirty days or so? Or is it necessary for the magpies to interrupt whatever we’re doing to sell their story line?

Organic Work

Above all it’s about building a business for me. How I spend my time. Relationships and Organic Work. These are the things most important to me right now. What’s really going on in our society?

Individual Interactions

In conclusion it’s the individual interactions and the wide scope of our lives that have the most impact. Do we really want to waste that time obsessed with what a bunch of politicians do?
