Nomad-Avoids-National-Insanity-Bob Davis Podcast 975

This Nomad Avoids National Insanity

Firstly listen to Nomad-Avoids-National-Insanity-Bob Davis Podcast 975. And to my New Years Podcast here.

Peace In Campground

Secondly I have new respect for nomads and travelers who seek the peace of the campground.

New Year New Themes

Above all this podcast continues some of the themes of my new years podcast.

It’s Not Over

I don’t think the craziness is over, for example.

And we’re not going to resolve our differences anytime soon.

Hit The Road

As a result I have gone on the road. Permanently.

Not Touching Nomads

In short most of the things that are driving people crazy right now aren’t touching me.

A Fire And A Sunset Is A Good Cure

In the same vein sitting by a fire and watching the sunset will cure almost any neurosis!

Back In The Day

For example a few years ago I would have been all over the mess in the US Capitol this week.

No more.

Political Talk Is Bad Energy

To clarify many of my new listeners and subscribers don’t want the bad energy political talk brings.

Sick To Death Of It All

Even more many of my long term people are just sick to death of the whole thing.

I don’t blame them.

Coffee, Fire and Sunset

Moreover when I put the sunset, coffee and fire together, who cares?

Welcome To The Epoch Of Upheaval

Finally I would be a fool to deny we’re living through a significant period of upheaval.

No Triggers

But if you allow yourself to be triggered by every event you’re going to have a tough time.

Let Outcomes Go For Now

In addition it’s not a good idea to attach our attention to outcomes.

Stay Flexible

Most importantly we have to stay flexible.

Change and Challenge Ahead

That is to say even more change and challenge is ahead.

Pace yourselves.

The Wilderness Helps

Meanwhile getting out in the wilderness anywhere can’t hurt.

Kicked Out-‘Pan O Prog’ Parade-Teaching Podcasting-Bob Davis Podcast 740

Summer in Minnesota means small town parades. For Mobile Podcast Command this summer also means getting kicked out of a parade. Find out how and why in Kicked Out-‘Pan O Prog’ Parade-Teaching Podcasting-Bob Davis Podcast 740.

A Minnesota Classic

The Bob Davis Podcasts has been part of a classic Minnesota small town parade for years. This year the Pan-o-Prog parade added itself to the prestigious list of places and events this podcaster has been kicked out of. That experience is the most noteworthy part of this podcast.

Podcasters Get No Respect

Above all in a free wheeling and fun podcast with one of my best friends, I’ll give you the low down.

Moreover I never sweat it. We podcasters get no respect. Not like traditional broadcast vehicles. Even more that’s part of the charm of podcasting. Check out Kicked Out-‘Pan O Prog’ Parade-Teaching Podcasting-Bob Davis Podcast 740.

Podcasting Is Growing Up

I am joined by an old friend on this podcast.

‘Jack’ is an instructor at a swanky eastern university. He teaches broadcasting. Because so many more people are listening to podcasts these days, I wonder why he still teaches young adults radio.

Rather than take the bait, Jack tells us about teaching his kids broadcasting and podcasting. Above all broadcasters in general have taken a sudden and intense interest in podcasting.

Furthermore when an industry on the ropes like broadcast starts taking a serious look at a disruptor there’s only one conclusion. We’re growing up, podcasters.

Summer Is Good For Seeing Old Friends And Doing Podcasts With Them

Finally Summer! Staying up late. Lighting the Tiki Torches. Sitting on the deck. Getting kicked out of a parade!

When the weather is this good, nothing bad can touch you.

Podcast 355

Nevada and Utah. Live from Park City, Utah in Mobile Podcast Command Unit 8, the Road Trip continues, leaving California and heading into Nevada, and Utah. Thursday was a tough day for the Mobile Unit. Damage was sustained after the driver — tired and hungry — attempted to enter a mall parking lot which inexplicably featured those concrete and steel ‘height regulators’. With damage nominally repaired, the Mobile Unit soldiers on, battered but unbroken. Updates for your weekend. Are you already sick of the Presidential campaign of 2016? What about Hillary’s bags? Is Rand Paul really crazy? Is Marco Rubio’s tax plan really a good idea? It’s Iowa’s fault. Iowa, that has no other reason for anyone to pay attention to it. Iowa, drenched in wind power and ethanol subsides, forcing the whole country to watch as these politicians traverse one end of it to another, just because Iowa has to have the ‘first in the nation primary’ in 2016. As a result, the media valve cannot be turned off. The result? People may just be burned out on political news and coverage, and one wonders whether by the actual election in November of 2016, anyone will have any stomach left for any of it. Is it possible too much coverage will suppress the vote? And, if it isn’t gyrocopters landing on the Capitol steps, its DEA agents who can’t be fired for having orgies, with prostitutes supplied by the cartels. Shouldn’t people who do these sorts of things be fired? Unfortunately, as the head of the DEA testified this week, the civil service employment laws prevent them from even being disciplined. And people say the government is efficient. Tax Day has come and gone, and at the same time one wonders whether the same anti-tax fervor that existed a few years ago, still exists. Touring the country shows people adapting. In spite of a moribund economy, and poor leadership in Washington, they seem to be doing pretty good. (Editor’s Note: Except for Reno, Nevada. They don’t seem to be doing pretty good on the East Side of Reno.) Plus some tips on camping out in Unit 8, emails and one more donation thank you.
