This is my favorite podcast. It's hard not to binge on the whole episode in one sitting. He's captivating and hold my interest more that any other podcast. I only wish he would churn them out a little more often. Dan make history interesting.

The greatest history podcast known to man. I'm hoping that one day someone much richer than I donates enough money to Dan for him to devote his full attention to Hardcore History. His attention to detail and flair for the dramatic is always captivating. A six hour long narrative is over in what seems like 20 minutes. I am left always wanting more, more details, more antidotal side stories and dates put in context with what is happening concurrently all over the world. He is an amazing orator and should be an example to all those who wish to captivate young minds. Bravo Mr. Carlin

Awesome Storyteller

These are so addictive. Dan has a charismatic voice, a true talent for storytelling and I've been enthralled, by all that I've listened to. It's amazing how topical so much of history is to what is going on currently. I can't wait for more.

Dan has a very civilian way of exploring history through the eyes of mankind's war lords to make sense of what they saw and then bring their esoteric discussions and notable viewpoints to a relatable platform that is so fun and interesting to listen to. I love this podcast! Thanks Dan!

When does it start

by jon.link on Aug 16, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I like history, so I tried really hard. I listened to the prologue to the introduction for fifteen minutes or so. Then there was the introduction or sorts, which still barely mentions the subject matter. More than thirty minutes in and there's been barely a word about the actual subject matter. There could be good content in there, but honestly this is such a longwinded meandering ramble through the topic that I find it unbearable. This seems less a chance to hear about history and more an exercise in showing off a breadth of knowledge. Mr. Carlin is no doubt intelligent and knowledgeable, but he desperately needs an editor.

Best History Podcast

by surrenady now on Aug 15, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

There's already a ton of favorable reviews; however, this podcast can't get harped enough on how vivid and personal these episodes are. Dan takes you behind the scenes of history not just facts but the "how" and "why" aspects of events occurred in the minds of the individuals. Although he's too humble to call himself one, he's a true war historian.

I hardly ever write reviews, but Dan Carlin's Hardcore History deserves one. As a history buff, his series have taught me so many things I didn't know and his shows keep you hooked in, which is a remarkable feat when most are over three hours long! Most importantly though, at least in his series "Blueprint for Armageddon", which focuses on the First World War, he really focuses on the human cost of the conflict, how the average soldier felt, and really the unadulterated savagery of the entire conflict.His podcasts are truly an experience for people "new" to history and for those of us that have studied for it for years. I highly recommend his podcasts, you won't be disappointed.

As my title says, this is simply the best podcast of any genre that I've ever heard. I listen to it at work, and actually get mad when the work day ends. Sometimes we are lucky, and trust me, history buffs are lucky to have this. Just sensational. Thanks Dan. Please don't ever quit.

As someone regularly has some windshield time, I can't get enough of these. My only worry is when I run out of content. I've listen to all the free episodes twice and I just went into the archive and bought two more series. I should have just bought them all because I know I will want them all soon enough. I though I was a bit of a history nerd and my love of these podcast as completely confirmed it. Dan, you are fantastic. Keep up the good work sir.

Incredible Podcast

by DeadB4Red on Aug 11, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Dan Carlin puts in a ton of work for these podcasts and it clearly shows with the quality and sourcing of his shows. The new podcasts are well worth the wait. I also value his decision not to exclusively focus on well known parts or events in history and he find stories that are interesting that I would likely have never learned on my own.

by ChasPDeremer on Aug 10, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

They don't come out frequently, but they are worth the wait. While not a historian, Dan has a unique take on history. His research is thorough. His podcasts inform and entertain. My favorite is the Blueprint for Armagedon series—28 hours on WWI, but it never feels tedious. Every minute was fascinating. Of course, I'd love to get new ones more frequently, but it that meant sacrificing quality, never mind. I'll take them when he can get them out.

Easiest podcast I know of to listen to for hours. I zone out at work and dive into the narration. I get more out of this show than any other history genre including my college history classes. ps- I am technologically ignorant of itunes (i use google play) but i spent 30 minutes figuring it out because this show deserves to be positively reviewed.

Dan Carlin is an inspired story teller. He has a unique way to get into complex and difficult subjects and make them fascinating, while offering possibly the best review of sources and a unique insight. I just wished I had had classes like these in college. I hope he continues to do this it is an amazing resource. If you have any interest in history just listen to one episode on any topic, you will be hooked!
