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.

Inspired By A Random Conversation

I wasn’t going to do this podcast. Then I had a most noteworthy random conversation and it convinced me I was on the right track. Learn more when you listen to Authentic-Self-Ego-Driven-World-Bob Davis Podcast 861.

No Bitching and Moaning

Moreover I certainly did not want to do another podcast bitching and moaning about social media. Or a long story about how talk radio listeners respond to content, compared to how podcast subscribers and listeners react.

Conversation Triggers A Podcast

I was networking recently with a friend and business associate. We ended up at his law office having a great conversation about music, life and of course we ended up talking about the national political conversation these days.

Social Media

Of course social media came up and this was when I was convinced to do this podcast.

Yoga Takes You From One Place To Another

First of all my daily yoga practice is never far from my conscious thoughts. Lately I have been considering how that practice has changed me over the years. How yoga has brought me to a much stronger awareness of my inner self, or authentic self, versus the ego. That’s what I wanted to do a podcast on at some point.

Tacking To Our Authentic Self

It’s especially relevant that this recent conversation triggered that line of thought and this podcast. How tacking toward your authentic self changes your perceptions of the world and especially politics.

Mission Of This Podcast Has Changed Over The Years

It’s for that reason that the mission of The Bob Davis Podcast has changed from opinions about issues and events, with a concentration on politics, to a conversation about outcomes and their effects on individuals and society.

What The Ego Wants

Finally the fact is the ego wants gratification, material success, power and recognition. Not all of that is bad necessarily. But, the authentic self doesn’t need any of those things.

In conclusion yogis will ‘get it’. I wonder whether political people will.
