If you haven't already subscribed and become a regular listener to the My History Can Beat Up Your Politics podcast, do it NOW. I mean, stop reading this and subscribe immediately. Still reading? I say again, subscribe NOW!
Now that your back from subscribing and then listening to his latest cast, I can't say enough positives about Bruce Carlson's research, powerful reasoning, and very balanced analysis. To be candid his speaking rhythm can be stilted and/or there could be done editing to clean up some overly pregnant pauses now and again, but the content more than makes up for it. Using context, facts, and history truly is one of the greatest tools we have to overcome hyperbole and get to the root of issues in the most honest way possible. Bruce does this in every podcast. If you are an American and engaged even in the slightest way in civic discourse, on Facebook or anywhere else, you will come to treasure this periodic dose of history.
