A little break from the news
Thank you, Darryl! Always so fun chatting together
Thank you ! I need a break from the weekly apocalypse, but I’m still gonna keep begging for more episodes on Friedrich, Nietzsche, and Dostoyevsky /Blood meridian type themes like in the underground spirit episode . I have listened to that episode about five times.
He's my fav after Dan Carlin. Although Dan's latest stuff is weak af. Glad Daniele is back from under that weird paywall. I missed his History on Fire eps.
Oh hell yeah! Just in time for my daily hour and a half commute home.
but but but.....Israel.....
Thank you for this......enjoyed it. More! (my feed has WAY too much politics.....)
I handed Daniele to some Italian friends. "He sounds just like you!"
Darryl and Daniele, two of my favorite historian podcasters. You both have opened my mind and helped to shape my geopolitical prospective: Darryl with "Fear & Loathing ..." and Daniele's series on the history of North and South America.
Thanks for the heads up. I knew he had a patron but I either missed it or forgot that he had a substack. That situation is rectified now!
I'm forever grateful for you showing me me Daniele man. he's opened my eyes to way more of world history than I ever thought I would care to know. can't wait to listen to this at work tomorrow 🙌
Two of my favorite podcasters have something to say?
I'm all in!
Darryl, why is it that conservatives favor the free market, the most destructive thing for traditional norms that they ostensibly value, but on the other hand liberals (using these terms broadly and in the American sense of course) dislike the free market but like the fact that it destroys traditional social norms?
The bonds between people are cemented with blood above all. Dissolving that, which money does so easily, what is left? The compensation of bowling leagues? Even immigrants come here with dreams of sticking together until son gets a $250K/yr junior associate job at a law firm 2000 miles away and hey, of course he should move. Suddenly blood doesn't matter. Money, and concern for money dissolves the mortar of life.
Man thank you so much for posting this, I benefit so much from hearing your musings with Daniele. You guys are the best!!!
I see what you did there, right at the end, leaving off on the scapegoat.
It all comes back to that, doesnt it....
Hard not to like the Italian stallion. As my wife says, "I could listen to him read the phone book, if phone books still existed."
Also a very interesting show on Netflix is a documentary on blue zones. Pretty sure it is called living to 100. That was realeased this summer. You actually live not to far from one. Loma Linda ca.
I love this conversation. My father is an anthropologist, he just got back from Tanzania where he was studying some very well preserved footprints from early humans. They are so well preserved, because of a nearby volcanic explosion shortly after they walked by. Right nearby they found another set of footprints from a different species of upright walking being. It makes you wonder, did they wave as they passed by? Were these species enemies and trying to kill each other off? Did they live together? Obviously one species went on to thrive (the "Lucy" species) and the other died off. It raises so many interesting questions. Good conversation from some of my favorite podcasters.
