If you see me tomorrow just know there’s a chance I might look a little tired. One of the things I’m thankful for today might prevent me from getting ay sleep tonight. I even pitched it to a group of my friends that way. The response was spot on “That sounds a lot like, ‘this tastes terrible, you’ve got to try it!'” With that mini-disclaimer in mind, feel free to listen but know you’ve been warned.
I’m a huge fan of Dan Carlin. His Hardcore History podcasts are outstanding. Never in my life would I ever have thought I would find history so enthralling. When Dan shares what he’s learned in his research it helps me see the world a little differently. There have been many lessons I’ve learned through his podcasts. Heck, I even blogged about it almost a year and a half ago: https://thankful4forty.com/2019/03/20/day-903-thankful-for-dan-carlins-hardcore-history/
Imagine my surprise this morning when one of my friends told a few of us there was a great podcast we should check out. I’m always open to hearing new thoughts so I clicked on it and it led me to one of Dan Carlin’s other works, Common Sense. I had no idea there was a mother podcast! Clear my blog queue, there’s been an addition to the front of the line.
The podcast that left me thinking nervously about the state of our nation can be found here: https://www.dancarlin.com/product/common-sense-320-steering-into-the-iceberg
As an independent I was very interested in his thoughts and I’m glad I gave it a listen. There were several points in particular that caught my attention and helped me look at the world through a slightly different lens. It also left me with some nervousness and paranoia of what we may face as a nation in the not too distant future. Rather than get into the details I’ll leave it at this. Long story short, it was incredibly well thought, well said, and very thought provoking. I’d highly recommend it (you might want to make sure you have a supply of melatonin to help you sleep through the night afterwards!)
Big kudos to my friend Todd for sharing this today! I’m thankful for having a few groups of friends who are willing to share thought provoking reads and podcasts like that. We may not always agree, but we all seem to always get a little more wise after each of those interactions. Thanks for sharing dude!
