This podcast is part of the holy trinity of history podcasts joining History of Rome and Revolutions.

I love history, but not how most teach it. Dan enthrals you with how he tells his stories and the facts he focuses on. He's very detailed and somehow leaves you wanting for more even after a 4-Hour podcast. Dan's the best!

Dan Carlin is magnificent! The research and time put into this podcast is tremendous. Thank you D.C.!

The Best Podcast for History, Period

by SpencerPaschal on Oct 11, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Hardcore History is THE history podcast, and will ruin most other history podcasts for you once you've entered the world of Dan Carlin. Stunning depth to the information, given to you by a host who knows exactly how to make it interesting and fully engrossing. Worth multiple re-listens. Dan is the premier single-host show podcaster in my opinion. If he had been my high school history teacher, I would have become a historian.

Good show

by Nature Of Threat on Oct 11, 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆

It's a solid show but Carlin clearly refuses to veer off the mainstream overly indoctrinated acccounts of historic events...and he certainly has a leftist (albeit not overt) slant to his personal politics which is slips in throughout each of his shows. If you are looking for a good foundation on many historical subjects that have essentially been fundamental in shaping the current world we live in....then I highly suggest listening to this show. However I cannot encourage you enough to do your own research and bascially just do the math. There are MANY components to WWI and WW2 that Carlin omits completely (as do most mainstream historians) simply because they are politically taboo to shine a light on.

Well told stories

Dan Carlin makes history fun. Such a great story teller. I'm always intrigued. And I like the way he differentiates fact and speculation and gives several points of view.

Dan is by far the best podcaster of all time. I can’t get enough of either of his 2 podcasts. Absolutely Brilliant in my opinion! I highly recommend everyone to listen to both of Dan Carlin’s podcasts!!!

I've been listening to these podcasts from time to time and I am not sure if you have already, but I'm gonna firing away nonetheless... Miyamoto Musashi and the time of samurai's in Japan with all the wars, clan clashes, cultural art, and strictness of that time would be great to hear Dan talk about.Even still, this is a great podcast 👍🏼

It’s been nearly a year I discovered Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History podcasts and I’ve been hooked since. Whenever I want do some aerobic exercises or read I let one of the episodes of Hardcore History play at background. It’s gripping and entertaining. I’ve bought a couple of the podcasts and have listened to nearly all the free ones, and I repeat them as often as I can. I always look forward to the next.

It's great

As a person who majored in history, Dan is simply being humble when he claims he is not a historian. I feel an honorary degree is in order if nothing else. Pure quality

great podcast and his voice is lovely. however, he says “by the way” approximately once every thirty seconds and it detracts from the experience.

Simply The Best History Podcast

I am a huge fan of this Podcast. It has only gotten better since it’s original conception. Dan has a way of bringing events to life and posing interesting questions to provide context and intellectual stimulation. I am constantly going back and replaying old episodes and enjoying them even more the second time. He crams so much good info in each episodes that it is easy to miss some good bits. Keep um coming Dan!

This is the most fascinating story telling I love his voices. My coworkers say the World War 2 episode was amazing but I can't find it. It would be cool if you did an episode I could share with my immigrant friends to help them understand American history at its basics if that's possible in one episode? I know you love context. This podcast is up there with This American Life and This Week in Science for me. Definitely a fav

Dan has made me a huge fan over the past four years or so. He is the best! Unfortunately he always leaves us waiting for his next show soooo long! No one else can touch Dan's story telling though.

Fantastic Longform Poscast

In the course of Episode 1 of Kings of Kings, Dan Carlin describes himself as not a historian. Fooled me. He's obviuosly read a ton on history and retells the story in a facinating way. Best of all, he takes hours to do so, and all of them are highly listenable. I listened to the first episode twice, then went running to the British Museum website to read the text of the Cyrus Cylinder. Really loving this podcast!

A great podcast for history buffs

This is the best history podcast I've found. Dan Carlin's research for each episode is outstanding and he has a great voice for it. Not the usual monotone voice a lot of history podcast hosts seem to have. He grabs your attention and keeps it throughout the entire episode. If you're a lover of history then check this podcast out. You won't be disappointed!

Nobody can bring history to life like Carlin. They should make these mandatory for high school. A huge thanks for making his show, must take a lot, and motivating history/ bringing it to life like this is invaluable.

Dan's voice is a great delivery system for one of the deepest podcasts ive listened to. His shows cover a subject in detail and with a cadence and feel of a well written story not a classroom lecture.

Dan Carlin may just be my favorite person in the world. Ever. His gift for communication is impossibly amazing, especially when dealing with a complicated topic. Nothing he has ever said is boring. His passion for history and his ability to make even the smallest historical issue relevant is completely mind blowing. Mr. Carlin, I appreciate how much time you and Ben put into each episode and don't mind a bit how long we have to wait between episodes. The quality of each episode speaks for itself -- it has always been worth the wait. I'm a listener that's not going anywhere and look forward to many more episodes!
