Good variety of guest, some famous, some are not, all are interesting people with well thought out perspectives. Cool format of weaving together personal biography with intellectual and political development. Helps provide a more holistic understanding of scholars and their work. Conversations flow well, goes in different directions but stays in a general direction, like any good history.
This is an interesting podcast: a thinking person's engagement with a changing world. I like mr. Parson's affable enthusiasm and intellectual chops. He steers the discussion in surprising & original directions. Now I want to read a paper on GI Joe as "chewable ideology."
Interesting and engaging, but please, let the guests talk and finish their thoughts.
Thank you, Dave. You do a great job! You engage intelligent and experienced people who are committed to making positive change and you've provided me with an opportunity to understand more of the dynamics of the upheaval, both during and leading up to, the 60's and 70's.
