Full Moon-Walk-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 824

A second full moon in Libra in one month suggests change. For some it might mean enforced change. We’ll talk about it in Full Moon-Walk-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 824.

Pink Moon

These days every natural event seems to have to have a name. The end of April 2019’s full moon is ‘The Pink Moon‘.

Walk And Talk

With no wind to speak of and warmer temperatures it’s time for a Walk and Talk Podcast. The rules are clear. No prep. No Plan. Walk and Talk in Full Moon-Walk-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 824.

Theme For This Podcast

So it is especially relevant that change seems to be the theme of this podcast. Seems like things that were so hot not so long ago aren’t so hot anymore. Moreover since these walk and talk podcasts also serve to consolidate several highly prepped podcasts, we’ll talk about being ahead of the curve on the latest negative stories about social media.

Social Media and Mental Health

Certainly congressman AlexandrIa Ocasio-Cortez’s announcement she’s quitting Facebook because it’s a mental health hazard coincided with my podcast about oversharing on the embattled platform was pure dumb luck. Even more, an announcement by the CEO of Twitter suggesting changes in the platform because so many extremists litter its cesspool’s surface, really made me feel current.

Quantum Jumpers

Most noteworthy and unexpected for me is crediting one of You Tube’s most prolific ‘new age’ and ‘quantum shift’ proponents as a bell weather. When everyone including the fortune tellers are suggesting swimming in the river of so called news out of Washington, is ‘bad energy’ the end can’t be far away.

A Change Is Coming

There’s no question political news and commentary saturates our airwaves and the Internet. We’re not learning more and consequently people are increasingly anxious. Clearly now everyone thinks something has to change.

Summer Doldrums-Surreal News-Truth-Podcasting In A Dream World-Podcast 726

These days it feels like we’re in the Summer Doldrums though Summer doesn’t start until June 21st. Find out why podcasters struggle with political and social commentary in today’s news flow in Summer Doldrums-Surreal News-Truth-Podcasting In A Dream World-Podcast 726.

Dream World

I call it the ‘News-Flow’. The dream world where stories flip flop almost hourly.

News Story Flip Flops

We’re having a trade war. Then we’re not. North Korea is going to make a nuclear deal. News is the deal is off. Now suddenly it’s back. Robert Mueller’s investigation will soon yield explosive results! The FBI planted a mole in the Trump campaign. Roseanne’s new comedy is a hit! Oops. It’s been cancelled. We’ll talk about it in Summer Doldrums-Surreal News-Truth-Podcasting In A Dream World-Podcast 726.

Awash In Commentary and Outrage

Moreover every screaming headline comes with analysis and commentary, predictions and counter commentary from all quarters. They’re only to happy to tell us why everyone else is right or wrong.

Is It Real? Or Is it Social Media?

Especially relevant is the feeling that all of this nonsense is building to a serious crisis. Are we all going crazy? Maybe it’s the Ambien. Or maybe the antidepressants. The full moon anyone?

Journalism or Propaganda?

What’s more advancing story lines is not journalism, it’s propaganda. Do the executives, reporters, producers and presenters understand this? Seems like all they want to do is keep people watching and clicking.

Easier To Talk About Roseanne Than The War In Syria

In conclusion maybe it is easier to talk about Roseanne’s latest fiasco, or how the Press Secretary yelled at a reporter than it is to actually cover the war in Syria. Maybe its cheaper to talk about Hollywood’s latest scandal than it is to explain why gas prices are skyrocketing.

What If?

What if all their story lines are wrong? One podcaster’s thoughts on a moonlit night at the beginning of summer.

Spring Has Sprung-Midnight Walk And Talk-Political Talk Reset-Podcast 715

In the Upper Midwest, spring has sprung. These days in my neck of the woods, we haven’t been able to spend much time outside. Walking in the night air makes me think about how much I’ve changed over the last few years. Find out how in Spring Has Sprung-Midnight Walk And Talk-Political Talk Reset-Podcast 715.

Walk And Talk Rules

The rules of the walk and talk are no preparation, no plan. A throwback to the years when I would walk late at night with my grandfather.

Time For Transition

Seems like spring is a transition. A great opportunity for us to reset our body clocks, as well as our thinking.

Shutting down the news feed, taking a break from social media and turning off cable news has been a theme in my podcasts. Sometimes it seems like cascading news events are difficult to keep up with.

The More Things Change…

Moreover, as I walk through my neighborhood, I can see that despite the breathless news coverage of details that probably won’t matter in a year, not much has changed in the real world. I’ve changed, though.

Rising Above The Debate

Most noteworthy, experience and especially Yoga have helped me rise above the partisan debates. These days I can actually be more of a ‘fair judge‘ of the hypocrisy of our institutions and politics. I’ll tell you what I see from my perspective. How you react is up to you. In Spring Has Sprung-Midnight Walk And Talk-Political Talk Reset-Podcast 715.

Hurtling Down The Tracks To Somewhere

In conclusion, something I talk about in this podcast is the sense I have that we are hurtling down the tracks toward some kind of clarifying turning point. I have no idea when we’ll get there or when we’ll get there.

I have read enough history and lived long enough to know that this level of rancor and venom usually do not lead to good decisions or policy making. That suggests at some point, someone will make the kind of mistake that produces major shockwaves.

Midnight Walk

Take a break from the paid shills of the two political parties, and the endless and baseless predictions of future events by talking heads and personalities. Take a midnight walk with me and drink in a spring night.
