Not-Defending-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1081

Not Defending Nomad Life

Most importantly I am not defending nomad life in this podcast. Some people think that is what I do. My response is here in Not-Defending-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1081.

Constructive Criticism

Firstly I’ve learned once in a while you have to accept constructive criticism.

Secondly a friend recently said the podcasts make him sad because I defend nomad life too much.

Content Review

Therefore I reviewed my recent content.

And I couldn’t disagree more.

Introspective Podcast

Above all in this introspective podcast I talk about the nomad experience.

Perspective

However I put this life in perspective.

Variety

Furthermore in my review of content I concluded there’s enough variety.

Writing Project

In addition I talk about a writing project in Not-Defending-Nomad-Life-Bob Davis Podcast 1081.

Attention and Energy

Specifically writing about difficult subjects requires a great deal of attention and energy.

Top Of Mind

So the podcasts aren’t necessarily top of mind every day.

What Needs To Be Said

On the other hand there are few things I feel need to be said.

Complicated

To clarify I like complicated subjects.

As a result my podcasts about the current economy make me happy.

Even more recent podcasts about winter celebrations and their value to our humanity also make me happy.

Moreover there’s always content about life experience.

Examples Here

For example here, and here and here.

No Back Slapping

In short I don’t do back slapping inside humor types of podcasts

No Boring Interviews

Similarly my experience has been most people don’t make good interview subjects.

And so called experts usually regurgitate the stuff they say everywhere else.

No Experts

Finally The Bob Davis Podcasts are about my experiences and my internal reactions to those experiences.

Travel

Further the podcasts also include subject matter about my travels.

People Places and Things

That is to say people I’ve met, places I’ve been and things that have happened.

But fair criticism is accepted.

Once a Broadcaster Always A Broadcaster

To sum up I think former broadcasters tend to be more critical. It’s okay. It goes with the territory.

#Nomadlife-#Vanlife-Not-Pretty-Bob Davis Podcast 1051

#Nomadlife and #Vanlife Not Pretty?

Firstly the snobs and scolds have suddenly discovered #Nomadlife and #Vanlife are not pretty. Is this true? Let’s discuss in #Nomadlife-#Vanlife-Not-Pretty-Bob Davis Podcast 1051.

Podcast Series

Secondly this is the second podcast for me on the growing backlash to nomad life. The other podcast is here.

Success Breeds Contempt

Above all this new attitude about hitting the road is the result of the success of that kind of sentiment.

Challenges

Certainly there are challenges.

But Rewarding

However it remains very rewarding for those who have the yen for travel and adventure.

Two Weeks Is Not The Nomad Experience

Moreover renting a van for a couple of weeks and writing about it isn’t what the experience is all about.

All Kinds Of People

For example I’ve met all kinds of people with a variety of reasons for choosing the nomad life.

Slab City

In addition another reporter has now done an ‘expose’ on Slab City. My podcast on the nomad mecca is here

Surface Observations

Most importantly surface observations are deceptive out here in the land of the nomad.

Inaccurate Assumptions

Even more they lead to incorrect assumptions about what’s really going on.

Rejecting American Dream Scares People

In the same vein I think there’s something about rejecting life back in the world that frightens some.

Yes It’s Hard

To clarify life as a nomad can be challenging.

There are setbacks and problems, just like in every walk of life.

Finally as I like to say, nobody said it would be easy.

Instagram

To sum up I would say much of the so called #vanlife and #nomadlife backlash is because of its success.

Social Media

For example Instagram and other social media posts and content.

Distorted Picture

In short the success of this life on social media has presented a distorted picture of how great it is.

There Are Many Moments

But I have certainly had moments which are great.

Something Going On

In conclusion there’s something going on in America.

Search For A New American Dream

Certainly many are rejecting the so called American Dream.

Why is it a problem if they want to hit the road in search of a new dream?
