Bay-State-Ocean-State-Bob Davis Podcast 1010

Bay State Ocean State

My friend Jack Casey joins the Bob Davis Podcast in Bay State Ocean State. Last in the series of podcasts about New England Travel in Bay-State-Ocean-State-Bob Davis Podcast 1010.

Loving New England

Most importantly I am surprised at how much I like New England.

From New York To Maine

Even more from Upstate New York to Maine it’s just been amazing.

Two Friends Get Together To Podcast

Consequently when I got together with friends in Massachusetts it’s natural we’d do a podcast.

Go Way Back

Firstly Jack and I go way back in the radio business.

First Rule Of Fight Club…

Secondly we don’t do what every other radio person does when they’re on a podcast.

We Don’t Talk About Fight Club

Talk about radio!

Growing Up In New England

To clarify Casey grew up in Rural Upstate New York and has spent many years living and working all over New England.

History And Telling Stories

As a result he knows his New England history and tells some great stories about growing up and working in some of the most storied places in the United States, let alone New England.

Industrial Revolution Tour In Reverse

As you know I’ve been heading east traveling across the areas most effected by the march of the Industrial Revolution, which began in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

Ocean State

After that we’re finally here in the Ocean State, where it all started.

Not All A Party

On the other hand the history of this region isn’t all balloons and birthday cake.

Dark History

That is to say there’s some terrible history in Rhode Island they’re trying to work through these days.

We’ll explain in Bay-State-Ocean-State-Bob Davis Podcast 1010.

And The Clams, Lobster and Ice Cream

Even more I am here to tell you the stories about the local full bellied clams, roadside Lobster and Ice Cream are all true.

Ate A Lot

Certainly I ate a lot during my visit. Foods I have not been eating since I’ve been on the protein diet.

Who Can Resist?

But who can resist baked beans and Italian sausage, a local staple. Lobster. Clams and Fries. Blueberry Pancakes and gallons of coffee.

Starving Myself Now

Finally now I am back on the road and starving myself!

History Is Everywhere

To sum up and in all seriousness. The history here really is everywhere.

Just driving through small towns becomes a huge education.

Going Back To The 1600’s

In conclusion it’s just hard to believe people settled out here in the mid to late 1600’s.

Factories and Mills In The Late 1700’s

Mills and factories started producing goods in the mid to late seventeen hundreds and early eighteen hundreds.

Twentieth Century Powerhouse

Furthermore by the twentieth century this part of the country was hitting on all eight cylinders, making all kinds of products for the world.

Family Stories

Jack’s got some family stories about working in the mills and the pride of work and place that was so important in this part of the country.

Celebrating-My-OneThousandth-Podcast-Bob Davis Podcast 1000

Celebrating My Onethousandth Podcast

Firstly when I imagined celebrating my one thousandth podcast I did not think I would by high in the Sierras. Come on up to where the flavor is in Celebrating-My-OneThousandth-Podcast-Bob Davis Podcast 1000.

Much Different

Secondly Celebrating-My-OneThousandth-Podcast-Bob Davis Podcast 1000 is a much different podcast than my 500th podcast celebration.

Key Decisions Drive Content

Most importantly my decision to go on the road permanently and share those experiences has driven my podcasts since last October.

Details Details

Listen for more details.

Nomad Experience

These days it’s all about travel and the nomad experience for me.

Best Yet

Moreover this is the best experience I’ve had yet.

Thanking Listeners And More

Therefore I have to thank listeners, sponsors and contributors that made this all possible.

Peak Experiences

And I plan to continue sharing this peak experience with subscribers and listeners going forward.

Setting For Podcast 1000

In addition there is the setting for this podcast.

Empty Campsite In The Sierras On A Weekend

Even more there is a story of how I came to be in an empty campsite in the Sierras on a weekend no less.

Patience

Certainly patience played a role.

Ask For Help

However the longer I am out here the more I realize there is a spiritual component to this effort.

That is to say sometimes you ask for help and you get it.

To sum up I needed a deserted campground to drag all my equipment out by the fire and do a podcast.

And I got one!

Getting The Campfire Ready

So this podcast was recorded outside as I got my campfire ready.

Blowing My Own Horn?

Finally it may surprise some to hear me say I don’t like ‘blowing my own horn”.

Proud

But I am proud of my one thousand podcasts.

In short you can crank out a thousand podcasts in about three years if you do one every day.

At least that was my plan when I started.

Unique Content

Subsequently I realized what was needed was unique content in every podcast.

Above all if anyone wanted to listen to all one thousand podcasts they would find one thousand unique takes on all kinds of subjects.

Podcasting Helping Me Grow

In conclusion one of the things I am most happy about is how podcasting helped me grow.

Passion

Even more how this passion for podcasting led me from one place in life to another.

And the best is yet to come.

Human-Nature-Progress-Random-Thoughts-Bob Davis Podcast 875

Winter Is Here…Already

I think it’s time to talk about a more reflective season. Winter is here in Minnesota. Even though it’s only Veterans Day, it’s winter. More time spent reading, streaming TV and more. We’ll talk about it in Human-Nature-Progress-Random-Thoughts-Bob Davis Podcast 875.

Two Recent Podcasts Highlighted

First of all I have to start with a review of my two recent podcasts with Congressman Tom Emmer. You can listen to them here and here. At one point in posting content on social media, I mentioned those two podcasts would be impossible on the radio today.

Mission Of The Bob Davis Podcasts

Moreover it reminds of me the mission of the Bob Davis Podcasts these days. Especially relevant is the need to say, and say again, I am not driven by wanting to be in a specific political or social construct.

Biggest Problem In Media Today

In addition it is necessary for me to say not only do I not want to be a ‘this or that’, I think the biggest problem in media today is most of the commentators, reporters, and so called analysts seem to need and want to come from a partisan perspective.

Some People Need Acceptance…Apparently

I think it is the wanting, even more the need to be accepted by some group. Learn more in Human-Nature-Progress-Random-Thoughts-Bob Davis Podcast 875.

Playing To The Crowd

Furthermore playing to an audience adds to the problem.

Say What We Want To Hear

Audiences expect content creators to say certain things. To defend or attack to shore up expectations. To say what they want to hear.

Not My Mission

Of course this is not my mission. My mission is to progress. To be decidedly unpredictable. To refuse a side. Ask questions. Advance the story. Artists progress, sometimes to the dismay of their audiences. Think Picasso, or even Elton John’s changes in style critics did not necessarily liike.

Don’t Follow. Lead!

Sometimes you have to lead the audience.

Human Progress?

I also thought a lot recently about human consciousness. Whether we are making progress. You hear a lot of talk these days about how much progress human beings are supposedly making.

You’ll have to listen to the podcast to get an idea of what I think.

Confusion

Finally the question of the progress of human consciousness leads me to wonder how we got where we are today. So much confusion about who’s right and wrong, what direction works, failing institutions and new ideas.

From Podcasts To The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald In This Podcast

Therefore it is a fitting random discussion that takes us from recent podcasts to The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald, the role of artists, and more.

I had a lot of fun with this one.
