There-Is-Something-Going-On-Bob Davis Podcast 954

Have You Ever Felt Like There Is Something Going On?

Firstly have you ever felt like there is something going on? Something you can’t quite put a finger on. More importantly a feeling welling up from deep inside. That’s what There-Is-Something-Going-On-Bob Davis Podcast 954 is all about.

Feelings Rule In This Podcast

Second I know this is weird. Therefore this is not a ‘fact-based’ podcast. This is about feelings and trusting your feelings or intuition.

Wanting To Go!

Most importantly many people seem to have this instinctive urge to ‘get away’. To ‘Go’. So this podcast is for them.

Everyone Wants to Go To Ground

In addition real estate in rural and exurban areas is hot right now. Lots of houses in the city up for sale. RV’s sales and prices are through the roof.

All At Once

Seems like everyone wants to hit the road, move to the country. All at once.

Is There Something Going On?

Certainly this begs the question. Is this some kind of animal instinct. Like going to ground before an earthquake?

What Do We Do With Our Instincts?

Moreover do we listen to our instincts or rationalize them away? And, what happens when we do that?

Not Everyone Can Be A Nomad Or Buy A Farm

Meanwhile life goes on. Not everyone can become a nomad or buy a farm.

The Rational And The Sensitive

Finally some do not feel the urge at all.

Doesn’t Mean There Isn’t Something Going On

On the other hand if some feel it and some don’t one doesn’t invalidate the other.

Feel The Feels

In the same vein I’ll just say I feel this urge strongly.

Trouble Ahead

Even more, my instincts tell me there’s more trouble ahead and this might be what some people are reacting to.

Mayhem And Madness…Seem Normal Now

In the same vein, fill in the blank with whatever mayhem you think we might have to face.

2020 Is A Very Strange Year

Given what we have already dealt with in 2020, I don’t think anyone can say, “That’s not going to happen”, with any degree of confidence!

Strange Brew

In conclusion, I don’t know what I’ll do with these feelings.

Speak My Truth And Move On

Finally I do know that I can’t move on with my regular podcast schedule without getting this off my chest. That is what I do in There-Is-Something-Going-On-Bob Davis Podcast 954.

Lock Down, Stress, Relax

First of all it is spring in the Upper Midwest. Even more that calls for a Walk and Talk Podcast. Just a short time ago we were living our best lives. Now we’re in lock down. Time to relax and think of it as just a game. Learn more in Relax-Its-Just-A-Game-Bob Davis Podcast 916.

Stress Levels Redlining

These days stress levels are through the roof.

Stress Can Be A Silent Killer

In addition as stress increases we might not be aware of it.

Crisis From Distant Shores

I think it’s hard to believe just a short time ago we were running around doing our thing, oblivious to a silent crisis making its way to us from distant shores.

Social Media Isn’t Real

Certainly we’re spending way too much time with all kinds of media. Especially social media. The angst and intensity flowing through our veins isn’t real though. At least it doesn’t feel real on a warm spring night. I talk about how to dial down the stress in Relax-Its-Just-A-Game-Bob Davis Podcast 916.

Trump Changes Tone

In contrast the president suddenly says the first few weeks of April are going to the toughest on us, as a nation.

Worst Effects Haven’t Hit

Furthermore the economic effects of the corona crisis haven’t hit yet. Some analysts are predicting steep drops in economic output. Others are predicting huge increases in unemployment.

Human Costs and Sacrifice

Above all there will be human costs to the sacrifices we have had to make, and to the economic slow down. I’ve detailed what it might look like on a recent podcast you can find here.

Pretending It’s A Game Might Help

As the result of all these present and short term future difficulties I know I have to shift gears and prepare for the worst. It may not feel like a game, but it’s easier to parse it out and remain calm if we play it like one.

Jury Duty All Week, Campaigning All Weekend

First of all US Senators are the jury in the Impeachment trial of the president. Or so some of them say. So weekends in Iowa are for campaigning. Learn more in Election2020-Amy-Klobuchar-DesMoines-Bob Davis Podcast 896.

How Candidates Interact

Moreover these podcasts give listeners a sense of how candidates are interacting with potential caucus goers.

Senior Senator

Especially relevant? Klobuchar’s status as a senior Senator and moderate Democrat, running in a field of progressives.

Practical Progressive

She calls herself a ‘practical progressive‘.

Lots Of Talk

Certainly politicians talk a lot. Some of these events seem to go on forever.

Editing and Accurate Representation of Events

Due to this circumstance I have to edit. Hopefully these podcasts will be accurate representations of these events.

Taking You Inside Events So wear Headphones

Above all the effort is to take you inside an event so you can experience it. In addition with shorter length podcasts you’ll get an impression of as many candidates as I can record before caucus night!

Trump Is A Big Part Of Campaign

Seems like all the democratic candidates want to talk about the impeachment. They all talk a lot about the President.

Republicans Take Note

Because of this republican leaning listeners and Trumpers may find it difficult to listen all the way through.

Organization and Pivot Counties

However one of my takeaways already is the depth of democrat arguments and the detail of their proposed agendas, should they become president. Even more the level of organization I am seeing here.

Listen and Learn

Finally republicans and Trumpers would be well advised to listen to these arguments and ideas.

Democrat Strategy

In conclusion one thing is sure to be a factor in 2020. Democrats are targeting pivot counties here in Iowa in preparation for a national strategy along those lines later in the campaigns.

Testing Ideas and Arguments For Campaigning This Fall

Therefore it might be a good idea to hear and understand the arguments they’ll use.

Some of them are pretty good.
