Podcaster Rob Carson knows conservatives ignore pop culture at their own peril.

Why does broadcaster Rob Carson share his epic guacamole recipe with his listeners?

For Carson, it’s not all about conservative politics.

Sure, the voice behind “The Rob Carson Show” is reliably right of center. He just realizes there’s more to life than Red State rumblings. Listen to Carson’s podcast and you might hear a song parody, a phony commercial or a killer drink tip.

Too many conservatives keep pop culture at arm’s length. It’s too coarse, too increasingly progressive.

Not Carson.

He marinates in it, and it shows via his podcast and radio appearances. That doesn’t even include his array of cooking and culture videos. Just Google “Guac’ of Ages” and get ready to take notes.

The HiT ‘cast checked in with Carson about the state of modern broadcasting, the challenges of being a conservative cutup in the Age of Trump and his time writing bits for “The Rush Limbaugh Show.”

Carson recommends folks catch up with all things HGTV, especially “Fixer Upper” with Chip and Joanna Gaines. FX’s “The Americans” is another recent Carson favorite.
