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.
Dan Carlin really does tel history as it should be.
I listen everyday. Excellent stuff.
I've been listening for 6 years now & couldn't remember if I've ever left a review so I'd like to say I've never been disappointed by Dan & BenðThank you
One of my favorite podcasts! His storytelling is brilliant! Love his subjects! If you love history, please give it a listen!
Dan Carlin knows how to capture his audience and keep them on the edge of their seats for hours at a time!
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
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.
Very interesting I've listen to each episode over and over.
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!
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.
I thought this was a podcast about hardcore very disappointing
This is required listening in its entirety. If you disagree, please discontinue discourse and refer to the prior sentence.
Arguably the best podcast around. An absolute gem.
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.
Dan produces the best history podcast in the history of the medium.
D.C. Has given me days worth of entertainment and education. The least I can do is 5 stars.
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.
LOVE THIS PODCAST!!!
I love how in depth Dan gets on every topic he covers. I can also hear in his voice how passionate he is about history and these topics specifically, and it keeps things from getting dry. I highly recommend this podcast to any history lover out there.
Dan Carlin has a true talent for drawing ones imagination into the past. He makes it easy to see into the lives of our ancestors and immerse you into the past. Can't recommend this more.
I mean.... there's no way to add to what everyone who has ever hear Carlson has already said. He's the Cato of our time. Settle in. He's gonna paint the picture so you can begin to see the world. See humanity. Settle in.
Not only the best history podcast but the best podcast period!
HH has its genius way of telling history so that it captures and illuminates the goods and the evils of the human experience. Amazing podcast with every episode of the highest, professional quality.
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.
Takes time, but always worth the wait.
How in the world do I get the earlier episodes?!! I just came across Dan and need everything pre episode 50
Absolute best history podcast out there.
Keep up the good work Dan, don't change anything. I would wait years for the next one if I had to; because I know you value quality.
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.
This was the first podcast I ever listened to, frankly it's the only one I will listen to until either I'm dead or Dan is dead
Mr. Carlin is a stupendous, riveting storyteller. His research is meticulous, casts are very well organized. Spellbinding!
if you have any interest in history then look no further!!! riveting amazing stuff
6 hour Celt and Roman episode just dropped in my quo. Thank you Dan and company. I was hooked awhile ago and went back and paid my fair share with older episodes. Delightful- learn and apply... Can't wait to get the T-shirt (when they get less ugly!). :)
A bit too dramatic but this is hands down the best history pod out there. Thanks Dan!
Truly a masterpiece. All the way back to episode 1.
Hands down, no competition.
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 seriesâ28 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.
I feel like I've found a giant box full of diamonds. Thank you so much!!
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.
I only wish it came out more often.
Unfortunately infrequesnt, but always extremely interesting, extremely educational, and extremely well-produced.I can't imagine how much work Dan has to put into these, but it doesn't go unappreciated.
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!
The best podcast ever brilliant explanations of history.
Dan, please produce more episodes. Would love to hear your analysis of WWII and circumstances that led to it.
