A long-awaited and frequently-requested discussion with Dan Carlin, the host of the Common Sense and Hardcore History podcasts. Dan was one of the first podcasters I ever listened to on a regular basis.
Some of what we discussed:
-What happened to the media?
-Dan's transition from radio to podcasting, how did that happen?
-The process for producing Hardcore History
-Is history shaped more by philosophy/prevailing ideologies or by accidents/wildcard events?
-The dreaded Nazi questions: could happen here? Is it happening here?
-An American way to fascism?
-Civil Libertarianism vs total libertarianism (personal and economic)
-Can we expect to maintain civil liberties with stricter economic controls?
-What kinds of people are attracted to political power?
-The problems with and politics of American schooling
