I have two sources of political news. People I generally share an opinion with, and have proven to be quite insightful.
Dan Carlin is one of them. John Stewart is the other.
I think Dan’s primary love being history (he also has a history podcast) gives him an interesting long-view perspective. That’s what makes it fun for me, at least. He doesn’t pick sides with parties - in fact hates them both equally, and endorses the “anybody else” cause.
Anyway, I was just curious if anybody else here partakes of Dan’s show. And if you don’t you might enjoy it. It’s at www.dancarlin.com as is the history show.
(ps - if you liked the Rome HBO show, Dan did about 11 hours worth of podcast content on the same moment of Roman history, plus the few hundred years that led up to it. He does a great job of putting you in the “man on the street” point of view of the times.)
