I wouldn’t claim any such thing. He’s gone mainstream - we all know that. But this is sounding a lot like ‘cancel culture’.Haumana wrote: ↑Fri Jun 11, 2021 1:25 amIt is just plain silly at this point to try to pretend that Dan hasn't caved to wokeness. He is chasing the dollars. Kudos for him but let's not pretend that isn't what he is doing. He faked his way into an audience that got him popular. That you think CS is so detached from his HH is kind of laughable. The dude's ideology permeates everything he produces, there is no barrier.SuburbanFarmer wrote: ↑Thu Jun 10, 2021 11:14 am
If anything I'm making Dan's case, except more honestly.
I didn’t hear a whole lot of equivocating, but yeah - he didn’t come out with “the Japanese were totally bastards for no reason”.
I think you’re injecting a whole lot of extra politics into the show. Common Sense became a train wreck, sure. I just don’t think it matters that much in the HH show.
It’s pretty damned good, even if he’s not your hero anymore.
I don’t really care about the guys politics, I just enjoy the show. Not a lot of history podcasts out there with that level of intensity and depth.
