Full Moon-Walk-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 824

A second full moon in Libra in one month suggests change. For some it might mean enforced change. We’ll talk about it in Full Moon-Walk-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 824.

Pink Moon

These days every natural event seems to have to have a name. The end of April 2019’s full moon is ‘The Pink Moon‘.

Walk And Talk

With no wind to speak of and warmer temperatures it’s time for a Walk and Talk Podcast. The rules are clear. No prep. No Plan. Walk and Talk in Full Moon-Walk-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 824.

Theme For This Podcast

So it is especially relevant that change seems to be the theme of this podcast. Seems like things that were so hot not so long ago aren’t so hot anymore. Moreover since these walk and talk podcasts also serve to consolidate several highly prepped podcasts, we’ll talk about being ahead of the curve on the latest negative stories about social media.

Social Media and Mental Health

Certainly congressman AlexandrIa Ocasio-Cortez’s announcement she’s quitting Facebook because it’s a mental health hazard coincided with my podcast about oversharing on the embattled platform was pure dumb luck. Even more, an announcement by the CEO of Twitter suggesting changes in the platform because so many extremists litter its cesspool’s surface, really made me feel current.

Quantum Jumpers

Most noteworthy and unexpected for me is crediting one of You Tube’s most prolific ‘new age’ and ‘quantum shift’ proponents as a bell weather. When everyone including the fortune tellers are suggesting swimming in the river of so called news out of Washington, is ‘bad energy’ the end can’t be far away. Learn more in Full Moon-Walk-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 824.

A Change Is Coming

There’s no question political news and commentary saturates our airwaves and the Internet. We’re not learning more and consequently people are increasingly anxious. Clearly now everyone thinks something has to change.

Podcast 612-Behind My Decision Canceling Radio Show

Behind My Decision Canceling The Bob Davis Podcasts Radio Show

Big day at The Bob Davis Podcasts. Decided to stop doing my syndicated radio show; The Bob Davis Podcasts Radio Show. Podcasts only from here on. Pure Play Podcasting. Find out why in Podcast 612-Behind My Decision Canceling Radio Show.

Mission Creep

The Bob Davis Podcast Radio Show has been on the air for seventy weeks. I started podcasting in 2009. After so many years I thought bringing content from my podcasts back to radio would be a good idea. Eventually I started posting the radio show as a podcast both to monetize it and because I wanted people to hear the show in the digital quality the Internet enables. In the end though, the show was beginning to take over the podcasts.

Podcasting vs. Radio

Pulling back the curtain for podcast subscribers starts with thanks, first of all, to Lee Michaels at Salem Broadcasting in Minneapolis and Saint Paul for believing in and airing the show. In the end, though, I came to realize radio and podcasting are two different mediums. For me the radio format has become too restrictive. I do not like what I sound like when talking about politics in the radio format. Plus podcasters can talk about other things that aren’t political. Like a trip to a motorcycle rally, an air show, or storm chasing.

Digital Marketing

Podcasters think having a radio show is a big deal. People think radio is a big deal. I don’t think it is anymore. Truth is digital marketing works better to build an audience for a podcast than radio. Podcasts have younger audiences more willing to take a chance on unique content. In Pure Play Podcasting we do not have to talk about issues the same old way. Hear about it in Podcast 612-Behind My Decision Canceling Radio Show.

Political Climate

Another factor is the political climate and mainstream media’s role in it. These days something true on Monday is proven false by Friday. Every media personality seems to be fighting to convince the audience of a certain point of view. Choosing a side and promoting that side has become the norm in modern ‘talk’. I don’t want to do that. I’ll tell you why in Podcast 612-Behind My Decision Canceling Radio Show.

French Revolution

Podcasters who only do podcasting may be the antidote for a discourse in this country that has come to resemble the French Revolution, as far as I am concerned. Thank you to those who helped me with the radio show. Thanks to the few that listened to The Bob Davis Podcasts Radio Show on the radio. Welcome to The Bob Davis Podcasts!

Podcast 475

Fight For Your Caucus. Web Designer, Senate District Chair and CD5 Secretary Mitch Rossow joins the podcast to talk about the latest misguided initiative by mainstream republicans in Minnesota. State Representative Steve Garofalo and others want to get rid of the caucuses in Minnesota. Oddly enough, before Super Tuesday, the reason for getting rid of the caucus system was low participation. On Super Tuesday Minnesota experienced a record turnout for its caucuses. So now, apparently, there are too many people caucusing. Isn’t that what we want? Seems like the truth is those in power don’t like the caucus system because it allows for the grass roots to develop new leaders. Critics say the caucuses are too ‘inside’, but aren’t the critics the real insiders? It would be so much easier if the goons in Saint Paul picked party leaders and candidates rather than the citizens. The caucus is one of the few opportunities average citizens have to participate in and influence the political process. Democrats in the state are concerned about this initiative, since the late Senator Paul Wellstone developed the movement that ultimately put him in office through this channel. Mitch Rossow has developed a precinct organization training program, and a training program for caucus conveners. Precinct organizing is the next step after caucuses and its the quickest way for citizens to take back their local representation and eventually state legislature and statewide offices. The enemy of the Republican is the Republican. While Democrats in the state post┬átraining videos well before caucuses, and have programs to bring volunteers in to help their caucus attendees understand the process, republicans never got around to doing much of anything to help local precincts with their caucuses. Now they want to do away with it entirely. Moral of the story; the MNGOP talks a lot about democracy and inclusiveness, but doesn’t walk the talk. One wonders what it is that they actually do; Not much of anything. Most of the time the state party is whining and asking the local political units for help. On the DFL side, it’s the reverse. Maybe there a lesson there for the entrenched perfumed princes, hidden behind a security wall at their office in Cedar Riverside. What a joke. With so many new participants this year, maybe a new crop of leaders is being harvested. It can’t happen soon enough. Sponsored by Ryan Plumbing and Heating and X Government Cars.
