Springbreak Part2 The Interviews

Firstly it’s Springbreak and time for some interviews in Part2 of my travels to Florida this spring. Learn more in Springbreak-Part2-The-Interviews-Bob Davis Podcast 986.

Interesting People?

Secondly as a nomad Podcaster people I meet always say, “Boy you must interview some really interesting people”.

Certainly there are interesting people out here.

Until…

But generally speaking I find most people don’t have much to say when you stick a microphone in their face.

Interviews…Meh

Even more I am not big on interviews.

The Thing In Podcasting

Yes, interviews seems to be ‘the thing’ in Podcasting.

However I don’t do what everyone else does.

I Do Find People To Interview

Every now and then I run across people to interview, though.

For example two young spring breakers in Panama City Beach, Florida.

And a truly engaging woman who owns a coffee shop in Madison, Florida.

As a result Springbreak-Part2-The-Interviews-Bob Davis Podcast 986 is a unique podcast for me.

Different Approaches To Life

Most importantly these interviews illustrate different approaches to life at different times in life.

Something Real

In short I’m looking for something real out here.

No Small Talk

I don’t want to engage in small talk, especially when it comes to interviews.

Long Term Effects Of The Pandemic

In the same vein I ask how today’s younger people feel the Pandemic might effect their lives in the future.

Coffee House

And I wonder how an internationally traveled and accomplished woman decides to run a great coffee house in a small town in the Florida Panhandle in addition to other demanding interests.

I think the answer is truly enlightening.

Unique Times

Finally we are living in unique times.

Huge Opportunities

While there are challenges there are also huge opportunities if we have the right mindset.

Florida!

In conclusion I’ve always thought Florida is one of the best examples of this reality.

The Sunshine State

To sum up I’ve been coming down to the Sunshine State since I was a kid.

Never Ceases To Surprise

The People of Florida and those who come here here to change their lives, never cease to surprise me.

Riots-A-Slippery-Slope-Bob Davis Podcast 951

Riots Are A Slippery Slope

First of all protests and riots have everyone talking though they are a slippery slope. Cooking dinner and sitting on the deck seems to be a great venue to talk about it. Learn more in Riots-A-Slippery-Slope-Bob Davis Podcast 951.

Civil War Talk Just As Dangerous

Second I don’t like using the term ‘civil war’ in the same context, but some very foolish people are.

Real Talk

In the same vein it’s time for some real talk about what’s going on and what it might mean.

Recent Content Rich Podcasts

Moreover I’ve done some pretty content rich podcasts lately about political realignment and presidential polls. It’s also time for a more relaxed conversation about serious subjects.

I Never Know

On the other hand when I do more relaxed podcasts I never know what I’m going to talk about.

Buzzing On Social Media

Specifically what kicked off this talk are people buzzing about ‘civil war’ on social media.

Dangerous Talk

Most importantly I think this is very dangerous talk, even for so called analysts and commentators. We’ll get into it in Riots-A-Slippery-Slope-Bob Davis Podcast 951.

How The Draft Riots Ended

In addition I use an example from history about the New York City Draft Riots, as depicted in the movie The Gangs Of New York.

It Wasn’t Pretty

To clarify the book, “The Gangs Of New York” was written by Herbert Asbury. A part of the book focuses on the Federal Government’s response to complete anarchy in New York City during these riots, at the height of the Civil War. It wasn’t pretty.

A Lot Of Silly Talk

Above all we don’t need a lot of silly inflammatory talk right now. No matter where it comes from.

Yeah It Could Get A Lot Worse

Finally many of us find ourselves thinking about how tough things are right now. Certainly we can all agree that an actual civil war would make things a lot worse. Like, you can’t imagine how much worse.

Cavalcade Of Idiots

Can we please stop using that term to describe street violence and cavalcade of idiots on both sides responding to it.

Delusional America

In conclusion I have certainly talked about a delusional America. The fact that we’re on the cusp of a change in epoch. I don’t think any of us can say with any degree of confidence where we’ll be in five years.

Meanwhile life goes on.
