Dan, you consistantly make history so detailed and you give such a great perspective on what it was like during the period you are speaking of, I told a friend of that you detail battles so greatly that you can smell the gun powder on the battlefield.

I can’t say enough about Dan Carlin’s work. He does an impressive job humanizing events in history that seem almost out of touch and does it in a way that keeps you entertained the whole time.

Dan Carlin Review.

Imagine that you are about to jump into a pool with water that is considerably colder than the air. You aren’t sure how it will feel but once there it sends your senses into overload. You instantly know that you have made an irrevocable life choice. Now stay dry and turn on a Dan Carlin podcast. Hello ice cold water for your brain. There is a passion in the voice and story telling that will not let you listen passively.

Always great!

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!

Anoher great podcast... I hope!

by PVBarbara on Mar 23, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

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!

Dan provides outstanding and insightful commentary that makes you question history, philosophy and the human experience. Can’t recommend his podcasts enough.

Great for more Hardcore History

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

Dan is amazing. If you love history in anyway you will quickly fall in love with any show done by Dan. His passion bleeds through, doing a wonderful job brining history to life and has only helped grow my love for history. Thanks Dan for all of your hard work.

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 show acts as a throwback to the very early days of Hardcore History. Good opportunity to hear Dan Carlin’s views on something he’s sincerely interested in without the months of prep time on his end. Very grateful for the extra content.

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.
