Summer-Sounds-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1045

Summer Sounds 2022 Immersion Therapy

Firstly I think we all need a break from the craziness right now. I’ll give you that in Summer-Sounds-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1045.

Headphones

Secondly put your headphones on to listen.

Spring Is Here

Certainly spring is here.

Not In The North

But in much of the northern tier winter can still come back with a vengeance.

Real Summer Experience

And the real summer experience is a few months away for most northerners.

Sounds You Might Be Missing

Even more if you live in the desert but were raised up north there’s a lot of sound in Summer-Sounds-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1045 you might be missing.

Yearly Project

In addition this is a yearly project for me.

Therefore here’s a link to some of the other summer sounds podcasts I’ve done.

Usually I produce Summer Sounds podcasts in mid winter.

However I was a little delayed this year.

Mountains to Plains

For example unlike other years I’ve traveled all over the US this year collecting sounds from the mountains to the plains and back again.

Lakes

For example a drum circle in Arizona and fireworks on a Wisconsin lake.

Mountains

Or the wind more than a mile high in Colorado.

Campfires

And campfires from Montana to New Mexico.

Summer

Summer in all its glory.

No Talk

Finally I don’t talk much in Summer-Sounds-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1045.

In short I talk at the beginning and briefly at the end.

So you won’t be jolted from your summer experience.

Constant Barrage Ends Here

And these days I think most of need to talk less!

That is to say we’re under constant barrage from media.

Telling us what happened and what’s gonna happen.

Stress Cure

Therefore our stress levels are through the roof.

Playing With Sound

To sum up I felt better just producing this podcast. Playing with sound. Discovering sounds I didn’t even know I recorded during travel this year.

Power Of Sound

In conclusion sound is powerful. It can take us down.

Or lift us up.

Further we all need a good lift right about now.

Summer Is Coming

Of course the good news is we won’t have to wait long for the real summer to come.

A Wish For Peace

Above all here’s wishing your summer to be peaceful.

Where ever you are.

Summer-Sounds-Winter-Relief-Bob Davis Podcast 983

Difficult Winter Calls For Summer Sounds Winter Relief

Firstly we are having a difficult winter and a Summer Sounds Winter Relief is the perfect antidote. Therefore headphones on for Summer-Sounds-Winter-Relief-Bob Davis Podcast 983.

No Talk

Secondly and perhaps most importantly I don’t talk much in this podcast.

Power Of Sound

Above all one of the things I’ve learned is sound has a lot of power.

Sounds Of Summer

For example and maybe the best example, the sound of summer.

Bugs and Storms

Certainly summer is loud. Bugs. Storms. Lawnmowers. People driving by with their radios up and the windows down. Boats. And birds!

Memory and Warmth Trigger Warning

However it is those sounds that trigger the best memories.

Winter Sucks

Especially in the depths of a terrible winter.

Deep Freeze

For instance ice storms, deep sub zero temperatures and snow storms. Seemingly everywhere in this country!

We Need Relief!

Meanwhile we all need relief.

Velvet Summer Sounds

Welcome to the velvet sounds of summer in Summer-Sounds-Winter-Relief-Bob Davis Podcast 983.

Headphones On

In short put your headphones on and turn it up.

Warm You Up

To clarify if you are cold, this will warm you up. Got the winter blues? This podcast will ease your pain.

Sound Does The Talking

Finally I concluded the best thing to do is to shut up. Podcasts are a talker’s game. But sometimes the sound does the talking.

Magnificent Midwestern Summer

As a result I spent last summer recording the sound of a magnificent Midwestern Summer.

Walk Through Summer

To sum up, now all you have to do is put headphones on and walk through that incredible summer.

Heat

The heat. Storms. All the things we associate with summer you can hear in Summer-Sounds-Winter-Relief-Bob Davis Podcast 983.

Sound Recording Geek

In the same vein listeners to these podcasts know I get around. As a nomad I get to record sound from where ever I go. I often can be seen with headphones on pointing a microphone in the direction of some interesting sound. Meanwhile, others are enjoying whatever is going on.

Experience

In conclusion to some degree I experience life through headphones.

Feel Better

Truth is, it made me feel better just to produce this podcast.

Summer’s Around The Corner

Summer’s around the corner, or at the tip of your fingers…and headphones.

The-Vast-Night-Of-Fear-Bob Davis Podcast 937

Vast Night Of Fear and Peak Summer Days

Firstly these peak summer days make me reminisce. We’re going to do that and more in The-Vast-Night-Of-Fear-Bob Davis Podcast 937.

Lot On My Mind

Secondly done a lot of political podcasts this month. Time for an easy talker. No prep. Or plan. Just what’s on my mind.

Striking A Perfect Chord

To begin with I watched a movie the other night that really struck the perfect chord for the times we’re living through.

The Vast Of Night

Certainly you should check out The Vast of Night when you get the chance.

Anger Incubator

In the same vein I noticed a news story the other day that says America is an ‘Anger Incubator’. Even more it reminded me of a recent podcast this month which wondered whether we’re all delirious. You can hear it here.

Find out more in The-Vast-Night-Of-Fear-Bob Davis Podcast 937.

Is Fear The Root of Our Anger?

In addition rather than anger I submit America is really an incubator of fear right now. Fear is what drives the anger.

And this is why, for instance, The Vast of Night is so good.

Perfect Summer Days Are A Contrast

But on the other hand, when we hit one of these perfect summer days, it gives me some perspective. Even more it strikes me as strange that we’re living in caldron of fear and anger with the wind in the trees and the sound of cicadas.

Sounds, Smells and Sights of Summer

Even the sound of a train rolling through the neighborhood reminds me of times past. Similarly, the feel of burnt grass or warm asphalt under my bare feet

And the smells! Right after a thunderstorm. In the early morning hours.

Do We Control Outcomes?

Finally, I think our fears are related to the certainty we can’t control outcomes right now. Not even a little.

Embrace The Heat

In conclusion it’s a short summer in the upper Midwest. Embrace the heat. Sleep with the windows open. Get out in the vast night and capture a look at the stars. Share it with someone before the heat leaves us.
