One of Mark’s favorite podcast hosts is Dan Carlin who does a show called Hardcore History.

Mark pumps him for some historical perspective on what’s happening today.

Is the USA a Fading Empire?  How Close Are We to War? How will this moment in time be seen in the view of history?

Dan is a clear mind with a keen historical vision.

We start with THE FAST 15: Michael Shure who is, oddly perhaps, a fan of how United Airlines handled their PR mess after they threw a passenger off one of their flights.

The two also talk Instagram, High Tech Casino Gaming and Famous Amos cookies.
