But....we need more content


by Defile Pope 196 on Dec 12, 2017

After every episode, and often periodically within each episode, your mind is blown. Expanded and required to the point that you sit with your jaw dropped in horror, awe, and amazement. In countless occasions, I was that weird guy on the train with wide eyes and open mouth glaring at nothing because I was in shock. I highly recommend The Destroyer Of Worlds and the Blueprints For Armageddon series with much respect to the Hitler vs Alexander snippet. Thank you, Dan for enlightening me in a part of my life where I do not have the time to read my precious books!

Literally the best thing I’ve found in the last 2 years

Dan has given me hours of entertainment with the two podcasts he does and the bonus interviews and everything else he has online. I would recommend the series on the fall of Rome, the Mongols, and the Eastern front of WWII.

Excellent deep dives

Very interesting! I love how in-depth each topic is covered. Would love for the episodes to be a little more broken up, but this is a great podcast for passing the time at work!

Well researched and diverse point of views

Hardcore history is perfect for a long road trip or a flight. As a non-historian, I am impressed by the varied array of sources Dan cites and the number of good questions he asks. Makes history intellectually interesting and entertaining at the same time which is very hard. Please keep going Dan !

Highly recommend

The *only* criticism I have of the Hardcore History podcasts is this: they're so good that I don't want to listen to anyone else! Mr. Carlin truly makes the past come alive. 5 hour episodes seem too short. I am eagerly awaiting more content! I've recommended to everyone I know. Thanks for all your work, guys!

Started listening after I heard him on the JRE podcast. Amazing coverage of historical events. I would love to hear about Wars I have fought in like Iraq and Afghanistan. The battles we have had in both wars, Battle of Buritz and fierce fighting in the Pesh river valley and Khost providence battles. Until then I will relive them in my memories, dreams/nightmares.

Great listen!

History made fun and interesting for ALL!

by Natbug Anne on Nov 26, 2017

Dan Carlin uses his podcast to teach the world about all things historical. As he says, he does not have a “historical reputation” to protect so he allows himself to speculate and wonder, as most of us do, about all things ancient and historical. I love how Mr. Carlin carefully compares these historical events to modern day happenings. He reminds us that history does in fact repeat itself. His podcast brings exactly that to light, intentional or not! When he paints these ancient pictures with his masterful articulation, he shows all of us just how ancient folks got themselves into certain predicaments and, in turn, reminds us of the bigger picture! His words remind us what a few misguided choices can change over a period of say, 500 years. Thank you Mr. Carlin for your beautiful words, knowledge and unique thoughts. Sincerely, A new, grateful history loving fan.

Absolutely Brilliant

by FourOneFivetoFiveOneOh on Nov 21, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I love this podcast. Dan Carlin has a way of speaking about history in a way that takes the listener through epic tales across human civilization. The subjects he speak about often make the historical figures he speaks of portrayed as movie characters leaving the listener to decide if they are heroes or antiheroes, whether that moment in history made us better or worse off. While he often claims to not be a historian, he knows about 99.99% more than the rest of us

Great Historical Review of Last 100 Years

by Sean The Pod-God on Nov 19, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Dan Carlin tells the story of the last centuries most important events in a narrative that is linear and easy to digest but also gives you all the details, facts, and easter eggs history buffs crave. Recommed for anyone who wants to learn a thing or two or thousand about the 20th century

1 of the best

by hh941 on Nov 19, 2017

1 of the best podcasts ever. Maybe even the absolute best - I can’t think of a better 1. It’s clear Dan Carlin has to put in a huge amount of work to make each episode so each one is very special.

Listen to this.

You look and tel yourself there’s no way that someone can pay attention for 6 hours. Well that assumption is wrong. It was my assumption and now I’m a lot more informed on the Celtic Holocaust of Caesar. Just try it while doing benign task that allow you give slight attention. Much love for Dan Carlin.

Hardcore history

Idk how anybody can tolerate, let alone enjoy, six hours of arrogant, pompous, droning on & on constant repitiveness of dead horse beatings! Blah blah blah!

Greatest podcast hands down

I don’t think there would be any argument about it. This is the best history podcast out there. My introduction to podcasts and my introduction to a newfound love of history.

This was well recommended. I love the perspective. Looking at the factors at play. This account considers the relevant events st the time both political and technological. Then it ties things forward so when could see the cause and effect. Looking forward to more episodes.

The Hard Work and Scholarship Really Shows

by sugarpear on Nov 14, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I’m absolutely obsessed! Though I would love to get more episodes more frequently, as a history major and subsequent grad school dropout, I know all too well exactly how much work goes into putting together presentations of this magnitude, I don’t know how you do it, Dan, but I hope you never stop! It’s always a huge treat when I get the notification that a new Hardcore history episode has dropped. In the meantime, I placate my thirst with the more frequent Common Sense. Thank you so much, you and Ben, for all the hard work and extraordinary content!

Simply put, these podcasts are the best! I love Dan’s passion for his subject matter. I admit, I wish he would produce podcasts more often. Like most of us, I’ve listened to each podcast more than once and learn something new each and every time. I’m able now to afford to pay for the pleasure of Dan’s other offerings. I’ll keep on listening. Keep up the wonderful work. Oh, my teenage kids also love Dan’s podcasts.

Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History

by Barnrat1117 on Nov 14, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast is not only tremendously informative, it is story telling at its finest. Dan Carlin clearly loves the subject matter and he can bring history to life seemingly effortlessly. Blueprint for Armageddon was absolutely brilliant. I was on the edge of my seat listening! Destroyer of Worlds is especially timely today. Even though I was alive during the Cuban missile crisis, I was just a kid and never really knew how frightening it was. Dan’s presentation brings it alive. If you love history, you have to get this podcast!

Better than college level history

by Mark Griswold on Nov 13, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

While Dan is not a historian, he definitely does a great job of playing one on TV. Weighing in at several hours a piece, these are not shows for the faint of heart but once you’ve listened to them, you’ll be all the wiser. Not only can you amaze people at parties, you’ll also have a better understanding of why history is important and its effect on the present and future.
