But....we need more content
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!
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.
I never knew I loved history until I started listening to Dan. His show blows me away.
Trually an engrossing expierence. What you wish your history class could be! Amazing storytelling!
Dan's gift for storytelling and enthusiasm is infectious! This is an excellent podcast.
Just started listening this week. Totally obsessed with the Blueprent for Armageddon series. Currently on Episode 3 of 6. Cannot wait to listen to the other subjects
This podcast is one of the best of all time. Obviously I just wish there was more. Net Neutrality.
I wish the history classes I have taken in school were so captivating! Excellent work and always excited for Dan's next episode to come out.
Thereâs only like 7 episodes total... did they get deleted?
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!
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 !
What else is the to say? Awesome podcast
Phenomenal podcast!! Just wish I could buy his other podcasts through iTunes.
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!
Great podcast with incredible amount of context on historical events.
Dan Carlin is, in my humble opinion, the greatest historical communicator who has ever lived.
Dan is a wizard, makes history more than entertaining.
The amount of research and care put into every episode is mind blowing. Dan is brilliant and tells an accurate narrative of history, elevating the lives and humanity of the people involved.
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.
Just got done listening to the first episode and Iâm hooked. Makes it easy to understand and learn. Plus makes it exciting.
Not a second to miss.
To me.....dude just goes on a long winded ramble without really a point, but maybe it's just over my lil pea brain
Dan Carlin uses his podcast to teach the world about all things historical. As he says, he does not have a âhistorical reputationâ 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.
Dan Carlin is the best! The editing is amazing, it truly sounds like he just sits down and talks for 5 hours with no mistakes.
Thatâs my review.
Literally brings history to life. I donât think many people have been exposed to history like this. Incredibly insightful and totally addicting.
Amazing! Dan Carlin is the man. Well put, riveting, and thought provoking.
Thrilling stories and solid research behind it. Dan is a fantastic storyteller and great at creating a comprehensive narrative for seemingly complex events.
Truly....stop reading this and go download all the episodes
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
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 podcasts ever. Maybe even the absolute best - I canât think of a better 1. Itâs clear Dan Carlin has to put in a huge amount of work to make each episode so each one is very special.
You look and tel yourself thereâs no way that someone can pay attention for 6 hours. Well that assumption is wrong. It was my assumption and now Iâm 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.
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!
I donât 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 Bible is without error and contains the words of life. Each word of the Holy scripture is inspired by God Himself.
I purchased an old episode âProphets of Doomâ How do I find it?
Found this podcast listening to Joe Rogan. These are simply Brilliant podcasts. What a treat. The work and research it must take to do one of these must be....... A LOT!!!
The best history podcast ever!
One of the most compelling media experiences available, podcast or otherwise. Dan doesn't put out many episodes but each will be with you for a long time.
Just wish it posted more frequently! More like an audiobook than a podcast.
I wish your podcast was around when I was younger...you have a talent for making such DENSE material accessible. Your project is an inspiration to me as a way of âhumanizingâ history.
Iâm 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 donât know how you do it, Dan, but I hope you never stop! Itâs 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!
The most intense, introspective and detailed history reports from Dan Carlin the god!
Simply put, these podcasts are the best! I love Danâs passion for his subject matter. I admit, I wish he would produce podcasts more often. Like most of us, Iâve listened to each podcast more than once and learn something new each and every time. Iâm able now to afford to pay for the pleasure of Danâs other offerings. Iâll keep on listening. Keep up the wonderful work. Oh, my teenage kids also love Danâs podcasts.
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. Danâs presentation brings it alive. If you love history, you have to get this podcast!
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 youâve listened to them, youâll be all the wiser. Not only can you amaze people at parties, youâll also have a better understanding of why history is important and its effect on the present and future.
