Happy-Nomad-New-Year-Bob Davis Podcast 974

Certainly we can all agree this New Year is a Happy Nomad New Year. In addition saying goodbye to 2020 and heralding 2021’s arrival takes a different tone. Join me from Organ Pipe National Monument for Happy-Nomad-New-Year-Bob Davis Podcast 974.

Most importantly if you’d told me last year at this time I’d be on the road permanently in a twenty year old ambulance I wouldn’t have believed it. But here I am!

Firstly this moment calls for a more sedate and perhaps philosophical tone.

Secondly I’m down here in Arizona at a campground. There’s not a lot of social interplay going on.

Meanwhile I am live from Organ Pipe National Monument. Local Arizonans told me this used to be the most dangerous park of all. Well, the Ambassador explained the origins of that moniker. I’ll fill you in during Happy-Nomad-New-Year-Bob Davis Podcast 974.

On the other hand there’s a lot to think about this New Year’s.

Most importantly a blanket ‘thank you’ to clients and supporters of the podcast, especially since I started traveling full time.

But there’s also the undeniable feeling we’re living through one of those epochal changes.

Therefore a new time line. Even more, new ways of thinking.

To sum up it feels like heavy attachment to any one thing, or way of thinking, makes this journey even more difficult.

In the same vein this has been a theme in my podcasts for a while now.

For example the shift away from political talk to travel and other topics. I’ll explain how fresh and freeing it feels to me not to discuss topics that won’t win anyone over and will do nothing but divide listeners and subscribers more than they already are.

However I don’t let go of those subjects lightly. In short I am not a light talker or thinker. And despite all the talk of 2021 having to be ‘amazing’ just because 2020 was ‘so bad’ seems a little silly to me.

Certainly I hope things get better but there are no guarantees. Truth is it could get worse. We just don’t know.

Meanwhile the park is settling down. People are starting their fires. Kids being called back. Hikers are back from the trail.

In conclusion given the fact that there won’t be any big celebrations as it previous years, hanging here at a National Park inside Mobile Podcast Command, seems like a great idea.

Finally, happy New Year.

No-Small-Talk-Agorafest-2019-Bob Davis Podcast 863

No Small Talk

I’ve never been good at small talk. These days conversation is safe. Sports. Weather. Don’t discuss religion or politics at party. Above all there’s one group where the reverse is true. Learn more in No-Small-Talk-Agorafest-2019-Bob Davis Podcast 863.

Live In South Dakota

I am live in Mobile Podcast Command in Gary South Dakota at the Buffalo Ridge Resort. It’s especially relevant that I am hanging with my anarchist friends at a little festival they put together called ‘Agorafest‘. And Buffalo Ridge is a great place to have it.

Ongoing Conversations

In contrast to pointless weekend conversation I come to Agorafest for the discussions about everything from home brewing to the meaning of life. In this podcast subscribers and listeners will get a little taste of our style of conversation.

Let’s Face It. Anarchy is Fun!

For political listeners most noteworthy is the question what is an anarchist? Moreover what brand of anarchism is the primary focus this weekend?

Anderson, Johnson and Davis

First of all to give you an idea of our fireside chats Cole Anderson and Mark Johnson join the podcast.

Life Is Suffering. Or Not!

Above all Mark and I have been debating whether life is suffering all weekend. That debate continues in this podcast, with some asides about home brewing and politics. How’s that for small talk?

Agorafest Stays With You

Certainly you’ll hear anarchy isn’t as threatening as some people think. Indeed maybe you’ll hear something you’ll think about weeks from now. That’s usually the case with me.

History

Even more most of us feel we’re at a turning point in history. That deserves more than small talk.

Talk It Out As Friends

It’s great when people with very different ideas about how the world works to come together, hash it out and still be friends.

Community

Everyone probably agrees that affecting change in your own community is more satisfying. Therefore learning how to do that constructively is a byproduct of these weekends.

Spiritual Bankruptcy-New Moralists-Bob Davis Podcast 795

It seems like the talking heads are always telling us what our problems are. The moralists are back trying to shore up their audiences. They are making the case our economic system and politics are making us unhappy. Learn more inĀ Spiritual Bankruptcy-New Moralists-Bob Davis Podcast 795.

Happiness

First of all, who or what is responsible for our happiness? Where does happiness come from? We’ll talk about it in Spiritual Bankruptcy-New Moralists-Bob Davis Podcast 795.

Happiness and Government

Furthermore I was trying to do a yoga podcast. Due to the political and social nature of the topic I have to explain why this question of happiness and government has come up.

The New Moralism

Most noteworthy this week is the fact that most of the moralism is coming from the supposed political right.

Moral Health Of America

Because of Senator Mitt Romney, Tucker Carlson and Armstrong Williams commentary on the ‘moral‘ nature of Americans I feel the need to respond.

Republicans Attack Capitalism?

Especially relevant are Romney’s attacks on the president’s moral character and Tucker Carlson’s attacks on capitalism and our political leaders’ responsibilities.

Republicans Embrace Chavez and Marx

Finally since when do so called conservatives start sounding like Hugo Chavez and Karl Marx? It isn’t the job of our politicians to ‘make us happy’. Certainly we claim the right to the pursuit of happiness, not the right to the condition of happiness.

Who’s Job Is It To Make Me Happy?

Also it is our job to make ourselves happy. I provide some suggestions for that inĀ Spiritual Bankruptcy-New Moralists-Bob Davis Podcast 795.

The Devil Marijuana

Finally Romney, Tucker and Armstrong use unsupported assessments of marijuana usage, rape and sexual harassment and general economic ‘malaise’ to support their points. They say this country is in moral decline.

It’s Getting Better Not Worse

In conclusion things are actually getting better. All the world’s problems are not solved, but it is a shock to me that so called conservative opinionators can’t look on the bright side anymore.
