I love this series though dan can we talk man to teen? You NEED to release the other 49 episodes I have stopped checking due to inactivity and nothing to listen to. So have a good day my urm, friend-thegamer90901
Iâve listened to the mongol episodes at least 6 times now.
This podcast is part of the holy trinity of history podcasts joining History of Rome and Revolutions.
Love the variety of topics, hope Dan keeps it going for a long time. But itâs sometimes hard to find the time to listen to an entire episode
I'm going to buy the previous shows... some of the best stuff I've heard. It makes me wish I had a long commute again
As a history buff itâs great to get to learn more while working!
Hands down the best history pod cast!
I want more
I love history, but not how most teach it. Dan enthrals you with how he tells his stories and the facts he focuses on. He's very detailed and somehow leaves you wanting for more even after a 4-Hour podcast. Dan's the best!
Dan Carlin is magnificent! The research and time put into this podcast is tremendous. Thank you D.C.!
Hardcore History is THE history podcast, and will ruin most other history podcasts for you once you've entered the world of Dan Carlin. Stunning depth to the information, given to you by a host who knows exactly how to make it interesting and fully engrossing. Worth multiple re-listens. Dan is the premier single-host show podcaster in my opinion. If he had been my high school history teacher, I would have become a historian.
It's a solid show but Carlin clearly refuses to veer off the mainstream overly indoctrinated acccounts of historic events...and he certainly has a leftist (albeit not overt) slant to his personal politics which is slips in throughout each of his shows. If you are looking for a good foundation on many historical subjects that have essentially been fundamental in shaping the current world we live in....then I highly suggest listening to this show. However I cannot encourage you enough to do your own research and bascially just do the math. There are MANY components to WWI and WW2 that Carlin omits completely (as do most mainstream historians) simply because they are politically taboo to shine a light on.
Dan Carlin makes history fun. Such a great story teller. I'm always intrigued. And I like the way he differentiates fact and speculation and gives several points of view.
Complex and insightful. This is the thinkerâs podcast.
Dan does such a great job with the subject matter!
Very interesting and engaging. Fantastic description and reads on history. I love the way he geeks out on the minutia.
This guy has a perfect voice. Easy to listen to. Then heâs massively interesting. He takes history and brings it to life.
Dan is by far the best podcaster of all time. I canât get enough of either of his 2 podcasts. Absolutely Brilliant in my opinion! I highly recommend everyone to listen to both of Dan Carlinâs podcasts!!!
I've been listening to these podcasts from time to time and I am not sure if you have already, but I'm gonna firing away nonetheless... Miyamoto Musashi and the time of samurai's in Japan with all the wars, clan clashes, cultural art, and strictness of that time would be great to hear Dan talk about.Even still, this is a great podcast ðð¼
Awesome just awesome stuff. Thank you for entertaining and teaching.
Researched, debate and analyzed history podcast around. Period.
Dan Carlin is the master, his shows are detailed and his narrations are legendary--this is the way we get people interested in history!
Itâs been nearly a year I discovered Dan Carlinâs Hardcore History podcasts and Iâve been hooked since. Whenever I want do some aerobic exercises or read I let one of the episodes of Hardcore History play at background. Itâs gripping and entertaining. Iâve bought a couple of the podcasts and have listened to nearly all the free ones, and I repeat them as often as I can. I always look forward to the next.
Fascinating overview of topics in history.
This is so informative and entertaining that a review can't do it justice. I wish you could buy the older episodes on iTunes.
As a person who majored in history, Dan is simply being humble when he claims he is not a historian. I feel an honorary degree is in order if nothing else. Pure quality
Once I started listening, I couldn't stop. The best history class you never got to take.
I would take the long way home - like doubling the distance - to keep listening. If youâre a history lover, listen.
great podcast and his voice is lovely. however, he says âby the wayâ approximately once every thirty seconds and it detracts from the experience.
I am a huge fan of this Podcast. It has only gotten better since itâs original conception. Dan has a way of bringing events to life and posing interesting questions to provide context and intellectual stimulation. I am constantly going back and replaying old episodes and enjoying them even more the second time. He crams so much good info in each episodes that it is easy to miss some good bits. Keep um coming Dan!
This is the most fascinating story telling I love his voices. My coworkers say the World War 2 episode was amazing but I can't find it. It would be cool if you did an episode I could share with my immigrant friends to help them understand American history at its basics if that's possible in one episode? I know you love context. This podcast is up there with This American Life and This Week in Science for me. Definitely a fav
History comes alive in this podcast.
I love this podcast!
Learned more from Dan than I did in school. Great podcast.
Incredibly researched and just amazingly narrated. Dan Carlin is just magical! He keeps you wrapped up in the story and you have that anticipation of whatâs coming next because the way he narrates the whole thing. He is awesome!
Dan has made me a huge fan over the past four years or so. He is the best! Unfortunately he always leaves us waiting for his next show soooo long! No one else can touch Dan's story telling though.
Hands down the best history podcast and probably education you can get.
In the course of Episode 1 of Kings of Kings, Dan Carlin describes himself as not a historian. Fooled me. He's obviuosly read a ton on history and retells the story in a facinating way. Best of all, he takes hours to do so, and all of them are highly listenable. I listened to the first episode twice, then went running to the British Museum website to read the text of the Cyrus Cylinder. Really loving this podcast!
This is the best history podcast I've found. Dan Carlin's research for each episode is outstanding and he has a great voice for it. Not the usual monotone voice a lot of history podcast hosts seem to have. He grabs your attention and keeps it throughout the entire episode. If you're a lover of history then check this podcast out. You won't be disappointed!
There is no better pod cast!!!!!
It's just too long between episodes. I would be very happy with 4-5 shows a year
Nobody can bring history to life like Carlin. They should make these mandatory for high school. A huge thanks for making his show, must take a lot, and motivating history/ bringing it to life like this is invaluable.
Best history podcast there is
Without a doubt, this is my favorite podcast. Well written, well researched, and worth supporting. If you like history, it's a gem.
Engaging and detailed, in a good way.
Well-researched and wonderfully-presented; my only complaint is that they don't release weekly
I've been listening to this podcast since I was in middle school, I am now in college and Carlin has been a constant companion into my college years.
Dan's voice is a great delivery system for one of the deepest podcasts ive listened to. His shows cover a subject in detail and with a cadence and feel of a well written story not a classroom lecture.
Dan Carlin may just be my favorite person in the world. Ever. His gift for communication is impossibly amazing, especially when dealing with a complicated topic. Nothing he has ever said is boring. His passion for history and his ability to make even the smallest historical issue relevant is completely mind blowing. Mr. Carlin, I appreciate how much time you and Ben put into each episode and don't mind a bit how long we have to wait between episodes. The quality of each episode speaks for itself -- it has always been worth the wait. I'm a listener that's not going anywhere and look forward to many more episodes!
