Plausibly Live is the Official Podcast of The Dave Bowman Show. From 2007 to 2015, Dave was the host of KFIV’s “Afternoons Live” (Later “The Dave Bowman Show”) and the Central Valley’s go-to man for insightful and entertaining analysis of the day’s news and events. In 2015, Dave left radio to raise his son and helped to launch the Podcast 99 network (www.podcast99.org), which features voices and topics from all around the area, the nation, and the world, on a variety of subjects.
Re-launching his own show as a podcast, Dave continues his look at the world around him, now without the constraints of terrestrial radio, but still with his eclectic mix of history and common sense. The primary feature element of Plausibly Live is Constitution Thursday, which since 2010 has been a weekly look at the history and impact of the US Constitution.
Dave is a US Navy Submariner, a radio talk show host, father, baseball fan, avid reader and a frustrated writer. He has a passion for books, theology, submarines, coffee, tequila, 1970’s music (especially funk!) and is a ToTaL Star Trek geek.
He was born in Oklahoma, grew up in Colorado, graduated from Ogden High School (Class of ’81) in Ogden, UT, served for eleven years in the US Navy Submarine fleet, was a Naval Instructor and a Ballistic Missile Fire Control Technician. He achieved the rank of FTB1(SS) through sorcery and favoritism but would have been happy staying an FTB2(SS) for life. He was trained as a targeting specialist and Battle Stations Missile Fire Control Supervisor aboard USS Michigan SSBN-727(G) and was trained on two Fire Control Systems, the Mk 98 Mod 0 TRIDENT and the Mk 88 Mod 1 POSEIDON. Later he served as a part of the Fleet Combat Training Center Dam Neck Auxiliary Security Force, which sounds impressive but was really just bait for Seal Team 6 and any Iraqi terrorists who happened to land on the beach in Virginia.
He later attended Seminary in Atlanta, GA, and served as a pastor for five years before realizing the massive error of his ways. Next, he moved to the Central Valley of California and worked in non-Profit management until 2006 when he was hired to do sports for a local talk radio show. In September of 2007, he moved into the Show Host position and thus began the legendary Afternoons Live with Dave! Diamond.*
In the fall of 2008, after years of questioning and study, Dave completed the process of conversion to Judaism.
In 2009 Dave married Cami, and in 2010 they were blessed with their son, Benjamin, to go along with four daughters, one son-in-law and four grandchildren.
In the summer of 2017, Dave and Cami relocated “back home” to Silverdale, WA, where Dave had been stationed when they first met in 1985.
