What Kind Of Nomad Are You?

Firstly too much advice for nomads kills the vibe. Learn more In What-Kind-Of-Nomad-Are-You-Bob Davis Podcast 1036 it’s time to talk about the independent spirit of being a nomad.

Advice Spewing Nomads

Secondly we may as well talk about the sudden proliferation of advice spewing nomad ‘gurus’.

Disclaimer

Most importantly there is a disclaimer.

Above all recently I slowed my travel roll.

Community

And I’ve met many people in the so called nomad community.

So when I point out something I think kills the independent spirit I am not talking about specific people.

Tribal Chiefs

However It’s becoming obvious there are nomad ‘gurus’ out there becoming chiefs of traveling bands of wanderers.

What Kind Of Nomad Am I?

Therefore I ask myself what kind of nomad am I?

Freedom

Certainly I began this mission to get away from people telling me what to do and how to live.

Self Discovery

Even more this is a mission of self discovery.

No Advice Please

For example I am the kind of nomad that doesn’t want advice even if it hurts me!

Learning Through Experience

In the same vein I want to make mistakes because I learn through experience.

Do What We’re Told Now?

Moreover what kind of nomads are we if we buy what we’re told to buy.

Go where we’re told to go.

Live the way someone else tells us to?

Why Did You Hit The Road

To sum up isn’t this the reason many of us hit the road? To be free?

YouTube

Finally I hear so many people talking about what so and so said on YouTube.

Shh. Listen!

I wonder whether we’re still hearing that voice within.

A Long Line Of Explorers

That is to say we join a long line of explorers and travelers who started with nothing and learned everything along the way.

Self Discovery

Including learning to discover themselves.

Mistakes and Learning

To sum up making mistakes is part of learning.

Why Do You Wander?

Moreover most people wander for various heartfelt reasons.

Be Prepared

It might not be all about what kind of batteries you have or whether you use a down blanket or not.

Be prepared.

But be prepared to be wrong, to make mistakes and discover yourself.

Seems like our current political system has produced the worst candidates in history.

No Joy On Election Night?

Above all we don’t even know if there will be a result on election night!

Talk Talk Talk

But everyone keeps talking about it.

As a result So-Over-Political-Talk-Bob Davis Podcast 956 talks about what happens one kind of content saturates a medium.

Turn On…Tune Out

People start tuning it out.

And turning it off.

What’s The Point? Clicks And Views!

Finally I have to ask. What’s the point? Who’s minds will be changed?

Frustrating, Exhausting and Boring!

In conclusion I like this podcast because of the obvious level of my frustration.

Magpies

I think much of our frustration and angst as a nation is due to all these magpies squawking on the power lines.

Time To Take Action

Most importantly I am certainly going to take some steps in the near future to further evolve the content of my podcasts. More about that in the future.

Radio Stories and Shout Outs

Meanwhile join me on a walk and talk. I’ll tell some radio stories and a few shout outs. In addition I’ll do my best to bring some clarity to this insanity.

Back to the graphic novel.

Media Is The Big Trigger Word

These days the word media triggers all kinds of responses. We think we’re living in a new age. IIn fact the medium may have changed but the message is the same. Learn more in New-Media-Same-Message-Bob Davis Podcast 929.

TV Shows and You Tube

First of all I’ve been watching a lot of clips from old TV shows on You Tube.

Miss The Old Days?

Second, saw a meme on social media the other day. Seems like we miss the old days, when there were only a few trusted sources when it came to news.

Have Things Really Changed That Much?

Certainly there is a nostalgia for the old ways and the old days for older Americans. However it begs the question, have things really changed?

New Media Same Message

In New-Media-Same-Message-Bob Davis Podcast 929, some easy talk about those old days plus some observations about the current time frame.

Media Outlets and Choices

For example back in the day most people might have been able to get two local newspapers, three or four local TV stations and a few local radio stations. Commentary was available on the editorial pages and a few news magazines.

Big Audiences Back In The Day

Even more audiences were larger for those few sources. There were no smart phones, computers or Internet.

Digital Age Changed Everything Right?

Due to the advent of cable, internet, computers and smart phones we now live in what we call the ‘digital age’.

The Message Was Always To Conform

During the so called old days media served an important purpose. Among other things, it was a tool to encourage people to conform.

New Platforms Different Mission

Finally the truth is we have the same number of major platforms we had back in the day. The difference is these platforms provide an opportunity for millions to be heard and seen.

We’re Still Pushed To Conform

However today’s supposedly complex media in the same vein as the old, pushes people to conform.

Tribes, Villages, Birds of A Feather

We speak to our tribe and not everyone. Our instinct to conform is reinforced by social media and other platforms.

The Message Is Manipulation and Control And We’re Still Buying It

In short no matter how sophisticated apparently we’re still ripe for manipulation and control.
