Dan is a pleasure to listen to. It’s great to see him putting together a short format podcast together. It’s very enjoyable and I always am looking forward to hearing his new materials.

Breathe of Fresh Air...

Came to this podcast after listening to Carlin’s Common Sense podcast “For Whom the Bell Tolls” podcast, which sounds like it might be the last for awhile. The amount of insincere certainty in the political media has made it in-consumable at best, and down right revolting at worst. I’m a long time Hardcore History listener and have been dying for additional interesting relevant content from Carlin, especially with the void that now fills the my time previously filled with political commentary. All I can say is thank you! I hope you keep the content coming, but if you don’t, you don’t. F anyone who says it’s your responsibility to create content. That fact that anyone condescends to tell you your responsibilities is really a sign of the times, use your freedom as you please Mr. Carlin. Again, thank you.

Love Dan. Not a fan of the interviews.

Hear me out. I love HH! Dan is tremendous, a gifted podcaster and epic storyteller. I’ve listened to every Hardcore History episode, some multiple times. Even at a buck a show I owe him hundreds of dollars, but I don’t like the interviews! And if not for the first episode, Germany vs Germany, which was brilliant...two stars. That’s all I could have gone. And I love his work. And it’s not that the interviews are bad, it’s just that the epic storyteller, the slow cook take your time let the history marinate Dan Carlin is missing. They seem rushed by comparison and a bit forced (sorry!) at times. At least to my mind. Though I’m sure I’ll keep listening.

Dan I really like your material, especially your audiobook, Thor’s Angels.” These interviews are really great. Might I suggest that you do an interview with a German historian to get the German perspective on the first world war, and the second. How Germany was fundamentally transform to buy both wars. I was stationed in Germany in the 1980’s along the east German border in the Fulda gap. I am especially interested in knowing how the modern Germans feel about the loss of so much territory in the east, such as East Prussia.

Great podcast!

Am thrilled to find another Dan Carlin offering and hope I will love it as much as Hardcore History. So far, I've listened to all of Episode 2 (Rome) and most of Episode 3 (4-Star Conversation). On that basis, my impression so far is mostly positive, but mixed. The topics and guests are great, and the Rome program is just about perfect. In Episode 3, however, Dan can't seem to curb his enthusiasm for the subject and ask succinct questions. Several times, he starts with a very salient question, then, before General McPeak can respond, Dan jumps in and rephrases the question; doing this twice or three times before he quiets down and let's the general answer.I'm begging you, Dan, don't go the way of Terry Gross! (i.e. become so long-winded and full of yourself.) Ask your brilliant questions based on your exhaustive research with your characteristic insight and enthusiasm, but keep them short--or at least under control.Please note: this critique comes from love!

Outstanding and insightful!

Stumbled across this after being a long time Hardcore History listener. Great complementary podcast on history topics to go along with the main HH channel. A must listen to if you like History, if you like to reflect on current politics &a issues, and if you like Hardcore History.

Greatness is guaranteed

Greatness is guaranteed with Carlin. I’ve never listened to a podcast with his voice on it that I didn’t enjoy. Even if he was a guest on somebody else’s show. He’s a genius and listening to him will make you think smarter.

I can't get enough. The interview with General McPeak was great. I guess I should be grateful that these only come out so often because the thought and display is excellent. Suppose I'll just listen to wrath of the Khans for a third time while I wait. Thanks Mr Carlin

I love the podcast along with everything else but I’m disappointed that we have to wait even longer for HH episodes and so far we went even getting at least one of these a month. I understand that Dan works extremely hard to make these podcasts perfect but I wanna Gino you should lighten up on your self we will still love your podcast if you don’t spend months making an episode we just want as many hours of your voice as we can get !! Anyway keep up the good work and this is by no means meant to be critical on the quality of the content .

Dan is my favorite podcaster. I am particulary a fan of Hard Core History. The Hardcore History Addendum is a welcome addition and a great way for us to receive additional content while he is developing his epic Hardcore History episdoes that we enjoy so much.

The shorter format is more easily consumable and never a bore. It can be difficult to find time to finish the 5 hour podcasts. It's interesting to hear Mr. Carlin's own opinion and perspective.

I’ve slowly drifted to other podcasts over the years since his podcast can be inconsistent in output. However, finding this and re-listening to his old content reassured me that this one of the greatest experiments in the new media age. As always, looking forward to his work.

If you haven't ever heard a podcast do yourself a solid and listen to Dan Carlin first. His incredibly well-researched topics are always very informative and easy to absorb. But it is his voice that will be what sets him apart from all others. It is very easy to listen to, clear, and always appropriate it seems flows from him yet is never overbearing. In this era of podcasting where everyone with a simple setup seems willing to take a shot at it; took often loud or rushed or hesitant, Dan has years of practice along with an innate talent for setting up scenes in history you wont forget.His other podcasts "common sense", and "Hardcore History" (this series' parent) are essential Dan Carlin. Enjoy, and see for yourself that you will be wanting to share these wonderful series with others.

Thank You

Love Dan’s hardcore history and common sense. Go back and relisten to some of the series and have bought series from his site as my way of supporting the show and enjoying stories I haven’t heard. I started listening about a year ago, so him deciding to basically cancel common sense hurt me inside. Keep em coming Dan. I’m a huge podcast fan and you are a Giant, if not the best podcaster in the world.
