These podcasts have fueled my already intense fire for history and been the source for continued valuable conversation with the friends of mine that are in a close albeit small circle. Thank you Mr. Carlin
Listen to 1 episode and you will understand the greatness that is Dan Carlin.Unbiased, great story teller. Gets you into the minds of the people of the times. I was listening at work to the WW1 series and got so lost in the episode I was throwing fertilizer halfway in the wrong persons lawn ð
This is my favorite podcaster, and I listen to a lot of them.
The only catch to this show is it's length, but it's very much worth it. I found it intimidating when I first checked it out, these episodes have kept me entertained by fascinating history for hours on end. I love his presentation and story-telling ability. Phenomenal, really highly recommend it for any fans of history
I have listened to many of Danâs episodes (several times over and over again). Not your normal monotone history podcast, Dan will have you transported into the storyâs he narrates. Also extremely thought provoking that will have you questioning everything you thought about history and humanity. (I would highly consider purchasing some or all of his episodes on his website, worth every penny)
The creators succeed in creating some truly excellent content with this podcast. Itâs one of the first Iâve listened to and Iâm hooked. Iâve always loved history and Dan brings a balanced and inquisitive approach to events that I find resonates with the curious and intrinsically rewarding nature of studying the history of us all.
Love this podcast! The episodes are a commitment, but thoroughly worth it. My jaw drops over and over at the human element that Dan Carlin seeds through each story, which makes each episode engaging, horrifying, and incredible to hear. Well done!
I love it! I listened to all the episodes available for free on Apple Podcasts, then went to Danâs website and paid to download the first 49 episodes!I listen to this podcast while commuting, on road trips, when doing household chores, just for fun, etc. Dan does a fantastic job of not only telling the history and giving you tons of context and describing how events relate to other events, he also does it in a way that is fascinating! Once I start an episode I hate to stop and always look forward to when I can pick it back up again and keep listening.So worth the time investment, and even dollar investment if you purchase the old episodes from his website! Give it a listen - youâll be glad you did!
I studied history at Indiana University. Dan is as good as any professor I encountered. And he doesnât force me to do homework!
If you study history, this is mandatory for you. I have listened to all of Dan's Hardcore History podcasts - Fascinating. It is great for the commute or for the treadmill. The narrative of WW I including the assassination of Prince Ferdinand was all history that was new to me. The impact of the informaiton in that series is exceeded by the Ost Front series which gives a full understanding of the German war on Russia.Now with the Supernova in the East, Dan brings the background on when the war in the Pacific really started. This includes a narrative on why Japanese society differed from all the other participants in WWII thus explaining the fanaticism that characterized the Japanese soldiers, sailors and airmen.Dan Carlin = Insight.
Danâs best ever IMO is the Genghis Khan series he does!! It is absolutely AMAZING!!
This is the most engaging podcast ever. I find myself at the end of a three hour+ podcast just as engaged as I was at the start. Not only is the content great but Danâs delivery is simply captivating. Hands down my favorite podcast!
If you love history, this podcast is definitely for you. I really like the way the world wars are analyzed in the first episode. I especially liked how the idea of one manâs terrorist is another manâs freedom fighter is explored. I need to stop writing this review because Iâm too busy listening right now. :) Just subscribe and listen.
I especally like the way Dan tries to make the listener realate the people and times he's talking about
I listened to every episode of âBlueprints for Armageddonâ and it was incredible. I canât imagine all the research he had to do to produce that! I loved the way Dan approached the topic with a relatively unbiased point of view. Iâve never heard it that way, and I think itâs important to remember that each life thatâs lost is a tragedy, not just the ones on your side of the conflict. I had no idea there was so much that happened during WWI and I loved learning every bit of it.
Thanks to Dan Carlin, Iâm one of many who realized that they had always loved history, just never met the right teacher.
Perfect mix of story telling and historical events/eras. I've learned more from this podcast than any other one out there. My only complaint is that it is so good that other podcasts don't seem as interesting anymore. I've never paid for a podcast before this one. In this case I went and spent $60 on the entire collection at the website.
Mind boggling good - listen and enjoy
I have never been so intrigued and into a podcast. There is some serious knowledge to be gained and so informative as to why things have happened, very thought provoking
Dan and his Hardcore History accompany me on my long flights...and I love it!! I am always anxious to hear the next episode! I want more! Thanks to Dan for his interesting commentary on things long ago.
This podcast is so interesting. History brought to life. Very military focused. The stories are compelling and the scholarship rigorous. Have a listen.
I listened to your Byzantine series many years ago and it was awesome. I want my kids to listen to it. How can I get ahold of those?
Great podcast - thanks!
Timeless, well-delivered information. Each one is amazingly detailed.
âBonus materialâ episode 3According to this guy, poison gas wasnât used during World War II? Hey buddy, maybe not on soldiers, but I can think of about six million plus people who would love to tell you youâre wrong, but theyâre DEAD!I listened to you ramble on insensitively for six hours and I gotta tell ya man, youâre boring! Bye!
About 30% of the Japan episode was tedious, apologetic, and painful to listen to, like everything corrupted by PC snowflake sensitivities. Too bad because 70% was super interesting.
I love history and Dan does a great job createing a pleasant listening and entertaining podcast. At first I was not excited about the 3-4 hours podcast, but Dan keeps you hooked so time goes by fast.
Im addicted to Danâs podcasts. As an amature historian, I find Danâs podcast a very accurate and comprensive historic accounts of what happened in history. Well done Dan, you are by far the best historic podcaster out there. The depth and logic in your presentation is superb. Thank you for making the podcasts.
Dan does a superb job of researching and using multiple accounts and sources to allow a deeper understanding. The fact that he can keep the layers from blurring together and help you understand how one event influences later events is amazing. He is an epic storyteller and causes your mind to want to study further. Thank you, Dan!!
Dan Carlin knows how to chew on a subject. The attention to detail and his insights make, a what almost 20 hour podcast series about the Khans or World War I, fly by and leave you wanting more when its over. Great job Dan. Keep it up.
