Election2020-Iowa-City-Bernie-Sanders-Bob Davis Podcast 901

Series End With Bernie Sanders

First of all, this most noteworthy podcast series draws to a close with Bernie Sanders. Go inside one of this signature events in Election2020-Iowa-City-Bernie-Sanders-Bob Davis Podcast 901.

Running To Get Candidates On Record

Certainly it has not been easy to get all the remaining presidential hopefuls on the record in Iowa.

Michael Moore’s Mileage

Likewise for Michael Moore, one of Senator Sanders’ surrogates. Moore proudly touts putting ‘fifteen hundred miles’ on his car in the previous ten days.

Moore’s Got Nothing On Mobile Podcast Command

I got a good laugh out of Moore’s bragging. Mobile Podcast Command has easily added more than two thousand miles in less than a week. Even more on back roads in the winter.

Political Storm Chasing

There is a storm chasing quality about chasing several candidates running an expensive statewide race. All for a straw poll. A feature of hundreds of caucuses held across the state on Monday night, February 3rd.

Two For One

It’s especially relevant that this podcast is the only one of the series that features two events. Senator Sanders was stuck in Washington for the Clive, Iowa event. So, I hotfooted it further east to Iowa City, to get a full Sanders speech, up close and personal. Hear it in Election2020-Iowa-City-Bernie-Sanders-Bob Davis Podcast 901.

Feel The Bern

Finally you get the whole ‘Feel The Bern‘ experience in this podcast. A big event featuring live music, a slice of how the team uses these events to organize volunteers and canvassers and a profane rant by a screaming Michael Moore. Moore struggled to fire up a crowd waiting for the Senator.

All About Organizing

In conclusion there’s no question Senator Sanders’ candidacy has attracted an army of young devotees. The question is going to be whether organizing those supporters will deliver caucus goers.

Caucus In Fairfield

So, from Iowa City it’s on to a caucus in Fairfield, Iowa.

Back To Minnesota

I am on the road heading back to Minnesota. These days the name of the game when it comes to back roads is avoiding the weather. It’s most noteworthy that I avoided the snow and ice. I did not avoid the rain. Learn more in Backroad-Weather-Adventure-North Carolina-Bob Davis Podcast 880.

My Radar And More Help For My Back Road Adventure

Especially relevant is an AP called ‘My Radar‘. Really helps to be able to track storms, so they can be avoided. Unlike summer storms, winter storms mean icy road conditions and that is no fun.

Weather Is More Important When Back Roading In Winter

Moreover since I am all about the back roads staying abreast of the weather situation, especially temperatures, is important.

Back Roads Are Fading? What?

What I have learned on this first leg of the trip home? First of all, back roads even in places like North Carolina are starting to fade. I’ve been talking about this on all the podcasts from this trip.

Growth Means Interstates

As a result of the growth in the South freeway systems we used to associate with big northern cities are becoming the norm here. Bottom line? If you want the back roads in some parts of the south you have to fight to stay on them.

Two Lane Roads And National Highway System

Even more this says something about the argument against big highway systems in general. The classic American two lane road is usually associated with the National Highway System built after World War One. I’ll explain in Backroad-Weather-Adventure-North Carolina-Bob Davis Podcast 880.

An Interstate Is Not A Back Road

Google ‘national highway system’ today, and you’ll get articles about the Interstate system. Decidedly not two lane roads. Consequently the highways people often associate with ‘back roads’ might just be Interstates that cut through less urban areas.

No More Cruise Control Please

Certainly for me it’s all about those two lane roads. And I do fight to stay on them. The scourge of freeway driving known as ‘cruise control’ makes driving on the Interstate a pain.

The Route South and West From Richmond Virginia

Finally, join me as I roll south through Virginia on the classic and perfect US 360, to US 29, on through Western North Carolina on the way to Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Below Zero Antidote-Summer Sounds Headphone Immersion-Podcast 693

Below Zero real temperatures are blanketing the North. While it is frigid, what if you could transport yourself back in time to summer? We do just that in Below Zero Antidote-Summer Sounds Headphone Immersion-Podcast 693.

Where and When is your summer?

Where and what is summer to you? A trip along the coast of northern California? A pool party? Or a walk down a gravel and dirt road at the lake, just before a summer storm? So, due to the bitter weather conditions in the upper midwest right now, almost everyone should enjoy a trip back to the warmth.

Summer Is A State Of Mind

For some people, summer is the sound of an AM radio drifting through the air on a hot day. A summer night in the 1980’s, or 1970’s. Summer is a state of mind. Where and when is for you to say. Almost all of us have a memory from summer. Especially relevant is the fact that your summer is one click away in Below Zero Antidote-Summer Sounds Headphone Immersion-Podcast 693.

High Quality Digital Sound Put Your Headphones On

No matter where I go or what I do I collect a lot of high quality digital sound. As the mercury dipped several degrees below zero this weekend I searched through my back up hard drives for something to remind me of warmer times. I decided to put together a summer sounds podcast. Headphones are best for listening to this one. Don’t worry, there isn’t much talk.

Sounds Collected From Across The Country During Summer

When I first started podcasting I did a summer sounds podcast. Since then with new tools, and more sound, I decided it was time for a new one. Since the first summer sounds podcast, there’s been a lot of summer travel. Much as I wanted to sit in my studio and listen, I realized from coast to coast and north to south I’ve collected a lot of sound. In conclusion, it seems like it would be best to share it with podcast listeners and subscribers. Furthermore, a lot of that sound is in this podcast.

From California To The Jersey Coast

We start in Mendocino County California on a warm night in September. A packed victorian hotel bar. From there, onto the California coast, and back to the midwest. Bugs. Wind. Storms. An outdoor soccer game in the heat. Most noteworthy, thunderstorms! The Lake. Of course, in conclusion, there will be fireworks.
