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 😅

Amazingly in-depth and entertaining history podcast

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

A must for anyone

I have listened to many of Dan’s episodes (several times over and over again). Not your normal monotone history podcast, Dan will have you transported into the story’s 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)

Thought provoking and engaging

The creators succeed in creating some truly excellent content with this podcast. It’s one of the first I’ve listened to and I’m hooked. I’ve 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.

Wonderfully engrossing

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!

Fantastic Podcast!

I love it! I listened to all the episodes available for free on Apple Podcasts, then went to Dan’s 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 - you’ll be glad you did!

Histor Major Approved!

I studied history at Indiana University. Dan is as good as any professor I encountered. And he doesn’t force me to do homework!

Dan Carlin is the best Narrator of History

by SteveB179 on Aug 11, 2018

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.

Absolutely love this podcast station!!!

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 Dan’s delivery is simply captivating. Hands down my favorite podcast!

Best History 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 man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter is explored. I need to stop writing this review because I’m too busy listening right now. :) Just subscribe and listen.

Amazing, absolutely amazing.

I listened to every episode of “Blueprints for Armageddon” and it was incredible. I can’t 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. I’ve never heard it that way, and I think it’s important to remember that each life that’s 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, I’m one of many who realized that they had always loved history, just never met the right teacher.

Best Podcast out there

Rating: ★★★★★

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.

“Bonus material” episode 3According to this guy, poison gas wasn’t 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 you’re wrong, but they’re DEAD!I listened to you ramble on insensitively for six hours and I gotta tell ya man, you’re 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.

Can't stop listening to it.

Im addicted to Dan’s podcasts. As an amature historian, I find Dan’s 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 is a beast.

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.
