One of the best podcasts I have ever heard.i want moreð
If you are a historian, or simply a history buff like myself, you will thoroughly enjoy this podcast. After I subscribed, I listened to my first âBlitzâ episode and immediately went out in search of the first 49 episodes and have been purchasing them from Mr. Carlinâs website. Superb content and delivery worthy of classroom instruction. Without a doubt the best podcast I have ever heard.
Dan does a great job: he explores historical events and then takes a 360 degree tour around the event from various perspectives. Well done!
Hope you do one on the Second World War starting from the beginning and the aftermath as wellGreat job
I love this podcast. I could listen to Dan describe paint drying for 4 hours. He can make that worth while. Spoil your ear holes and listen to everything this man says. Canât wait till the next episode
Dear Dan, I canât wait to listen to your next episode. The power of your fantastic narration is very inspirational and your words transport me to that moment you are portraying. Thank you
Hardcore History is without equal in the world of podcasts. Even at more than 20 hours for the WWI series I was left wanting more.If you have any interest in history you would be well served to give this a try.
This show is amazingly well done and told in an engaging way. I just finished Blueprint for Armageddon, and I was impressed with how a war that was not nearly as interesting in history books or on maps was brought to life by Dan Carlinâs storytelling. It is also told in an accessible way that even interested my spouse, who is not the history junkie that I am, so that we can listen together on long road trips.
Dan Carlin turns every episode of human history into a thrilling roller coaster ride. You canât get off and you want all your friends in.
Superb in so many ways. Carlin assures us he is not a "professional" historian, but the knowledge he imparts is every bit as valuable. This is not for those wanting sound bytes; Carlin escorts us on deep dives. But the long episodes flow well, and can be picked up in chunks, even permiting skipping about, depending on your listening and learning style. There is just so much here about this war that today continues to profoundly affect the planet.
If my high school professors taught history as entertaining as Dan, I'd have been a history major. I guess I'll have to settle for a latent history fan. Thanks Dan.
I really love listening to Dan. Lots of great details. I wish I'd found it sooner. Unfortunately my attention span isn't that great so I usually split the episodes into 2 or 3 parts. Keep up the good work.
Blueprint for Armageddon & the Destroyer or Worlds Blitz were excellent listens.
Possibly the best thing on the internet.
The content covered is fascinating, and well covered for possibly 15 minutes out of each hour but the other 45 minutes is constant mockery, insults and interruptions by all except one contributor. It just ruins it for me and actually makes the show unpleasant to listen to. All these folks need hug it out and learn to focus on the subject matter.
As a history major I can tell you that Iâve spent countless hours in lectures and talks about various topics in world history, Dan Carlinâs podcast is much more entertaining and doesnât make me want to fall asleep! Iâve enjoyed every episode and he is very thorough and non-biased.
Dude really just loves the sound of his own voice...really boring.
Dan Carlin does a great job of making the stories come alive and helping you imagine the events that are taking place. He makes you hungry for more history as any good history teacher should. Can not recommend this podcast highly enough.
But Dan is an awesome tour guide through some of the darkest periods in human history. Anyone who loves history would be remiss to not give it a shot.
If I had the time to read history as a profession and was sharp enough to remember the details, I still could not match the passion and depth of understanding that Dan brings to this podcast. Itâs like listening to the best possible version of a historian sitting down with you to explore the rich tapestry of history. Poking at one thread and tracing where it goes, zooming out to see how it connects to everything else, Dan gives listeners the ability to appreciate history as if it were happening in the present and allows us to stand in the shoes of our ancestors. Kudos To Dan!
No one teaches History like Dan! His research and attention to detail are only outdone by his voice. His series on WWI (blueprint for Armageddon) and his supplement the (American peril) should be standard for all high school history classes. His work on the The Khans is also a breathtaking and fantastic voyage into the past. My only complaint is that they donât drop more frequently.
Iâve listened and re-listened. Read many of the source materials. It took me a long time to give podcasts a chance and it was this show which finally introduced me... in my opinion this show is the gold standard upon which all other podcasts are measured. Dan Carlin is an amazing story teller. I wish he could produce a new show ever week!
Dan's take on historical events is in depth and well researched. His telling makes every topic inetersting, even yhings I didn't think were before I listened. Best history podcast available currently.
The amount of time and effort that goes into creating one of these episodes is mind boggling. Thanks for all the hard work, I love the content.!
Yes. Long, but yes.
Celtic Holocaust was recommended. Iâve recommended to several others. It is a classic commentary. Brilliant presentation. Lucid and accessible when so much is covered. And very balanced. Carlin is very credible.
So much work goes into this and Dan is a compelling voice. I always get pumped when this pops up in my feed!
I live history because the stories are often time better than fiction. As far as historical story tellers go, there is no one better.
Really? 18k 5 star ratings and Iâm the second review? I would just like to say that this is the first time Iâve ever been on a world stage, and itâs terrifying. Hi Mom.
Should be heard by every human being ! Brought me back to my youth in Lake Placid New York upon viewing the Hellstom Chronicles. Very powerful Dan
Dan Carlin breaks up history into digestible pieces that ultimately allow the listener to determine what really happened.History is not just what the text books tell us... only the best estimation written by the victors.
Best history podcast ever! So epic youâll want more and more!
Excellent - fills all the time with commentary and deep detail. Well researched, good opinions separated from the dryness of academia. Highly recommend!
Spectacular content. Dan Carlin has a voice thatâs tailor suited to narration, and presents some fascinating ideas regarding history I assumed myself to be pretty well versed in. Love it!!!!
Hardcore History is more than a podcast. I wait for new episodes more than any author, tv show or musician. It is a piece of art that will stand the test of time. In my humble opinion
The World War 1 podcast is one of the most entertaining things I have ever heard/viewed. You don't need to love history to find it super entertaining. Dan's podcast is one of the only that has made be consider paying money for a podcast. Even the Persian series on Xerces was great, I would have thought it would be boring but not a chance, great entertainment.
If it's important history, it's deserving of one or many 4-hour podcasts. This is the best way to get the level of detail needed to understand the events covered and the context in which they fell. Dan Carlin and Mike Duncan made history lovers of me.
My only complaint is I wish there were more!
Far better than any of my history professors in college. I canât get enough of hardcore history. I even started listening to Common Sense just to hear Danâs side, and I hate politics!!!Keep up the excellent work Dan
The only other podcast that is almost as good is common sense, also by dan Carlin. Each episode is a gem that can be played uncountably, with value each time.
Not for the delicate of heart. Delivered with panache!
This was introduced to me by a friend of mine, I am in high school and it helps fill in those gaps that I failed to understand in history class. This is truly thought-provoking and really makes me think hard about history.
This is simply put the best Podcast around, the stories and knowledge are amazing!
Carlin is a remarkable history teacher. Anybody wanting to understand the world today needs to learn about how we got here. Carlin brings the relevancy of the past into sharp focus.
If history, in its most cracker-dry format is your favorite subject, Hardcore History is a deliciously prepared, butter drenched filet mignon, served up on a 500 degree platter of perfect storytelling. I only wish I could give Hardcore History one more star; a bonus star. One a scale of 1-10, this podcast by Dan Carlin goes to 11 and beyond. I have listened over and over and will continue do so. Simply brilliant. Dan Carlin, if youâre looking for a researcher for future projects, Iâm your girl!
Carlin has a way of telling the story of some of our most significant historical events in a way that makes it feel like itâs unfolding before us. His series on WW1 is absolutely superb.
Really have enjoyed the few podcasts I have listened to because of how encompassing and thought provoking they are. Mr. Carlin offers a refreshing storyline, covering the topic from all sides. If I have a criticism, it lies with how fast he talks at times, especially when quoting participants and authors. I just finished Blueprint for Armageddon lI. There were times in that podcast where he spoke so fast it was hard to comprehend what he was saying.
HH is by far the greatest thing on the Internet
This guy is the best saw him on rogans podcast and haven't turned back plan to buy his mongol series tonight if you have the time to finish these like i do you'll love it
