Diamond in the rough
Wiz Kids for 3!
I was sad that I had already finished the main Hardcore History page, and I was delighted to find this page for extra content. I particularly loved the Hart interview, wish it was longer, que sera, sera
Looking back on WWI is so powerfully surreal to me. Most of those people had no idea what they were getting into. It would be sad if we had remembered our lesson, if we ever learned it in the first place. But we didn’t, making it terrifying and doubly tragic. It’s like tomorrow is already happening and there’s nothing we can do about it. It’s not just that so many people died. It’s that so many people were impelled to kill. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. I grieve for our descendants.
Nicolas Cage as Alexander the Great?!?!? Can’t see that specifically.... lol but thank you so much for the hours of educational entertainment that is 2nd to none. This along with the original is the best!
Mr Carlin the master story teller,
Mahalo Mr Carlin, the way you add so much to your podcast, the insight and the drama is so appreciated. Have you ever thought of doing pre western contact Hawaii? Appreciate you work. Aloha ke Akua (go with God)
The best Historical Podcast to date! A MUST listen!
Always thought provoking
Whether or not I agree with what is being said, I find myself thinking about why. Knowledge is not simply for regurgitation. Dan’s opinions make me question my own. I thoroughly enjoy his speaking style, and many of the topics.

That show was extremely interesting to me, especially the part about how the youth will adapt. I love this show but you were right that during this time I have began to question myself and reality even more. Can’t wait to hear more stay safe everyone.
How do we win
We win by coming through with our Constitution still totally intact. With all ours rights and all our freedoms still there. We act like this is the only time in our history bad things have happened. And we question if we have done the right things Or do we divide even more and each side blames the other. This has already started with the left wing media blaming the President for not acting fast enough. And the right accusing the Democratic Governors trying to subvert the constitution and banning our 1st and 2nd amendment rights. But I truly think we will be back to normal. Americans have short memory’s

I disagree with the “too biased” comment. Believing and articulating the view that the west had the better moral case is not inappropriate to my mind. I’d give 5 start but I thought the end was rushed and one more episode needed to properly cover the unraveling of the Warsaw Pact countries

Second only to Rogan
Brilliant. Dan Carlin is absolutely terrific.
This podcast is great. I am pretty sure he is a conservative not liberal. He has said that. Also trump is one of the most unqualified people to be in the presidency. He has made a mockery of our country. Do you not notice all the stupid things that man has said? Anyway dan is very good at keeping you interested in the subject. Don’t let the few bad reviews deter you from listening to the podcast. He means what he says and says what he means. A lot of research seems to be done by him in each subject. I listen to his other podcasts and they are just as good. I really get mad about the false negative reviews. They are unjust and unfounded. I assume by people with nothing better to do. Dan keep it up! I stand behind you brother.
Immersive Story Telling At It’s Best
This man and his gift for bringing history to life is nothing short of God sent. There is nothing I look forward to more than Dan Carlin’s next release.
So informative and unbiased
Love Carlin! He informs but without an agenda or point/theory to prove, the guy just loves history and can spin a great podcast of historical tales that most the time I would never have researched on my own. So thank you Dan for making me like periods of history I did not know I was interested in at all.
Love love love
This is the BEST podcast! I love it! Dan Carlin even makes ancient history seem alive and interesting. The only thing I DON’T like is how quickly I blast through every new episode🙂 I wish Mr. Carlin could make new episodes as fast as I can listen to them!
It would be a good podcast if he could keep his liberal crap out of it.
Good for a short story
Great history podcast as usual for this host. I try to stay as neutral as I can when it comes to politics, but his perspective on it is interesting. If you don’t know history you may be doomed to repeat it.
Smart historical perspective
In typical fashion Trump bootlickers are brigading Dan's brilliant podcast with low ratings. Dan is non-partisan, however if you are seeking republican propaganda, this may not be the podcast for you.
Weak arguments abound
Your guest is a nervous nelly. Trump is not a violent man. Exactly when has the President been casual about the use of force. He sounds like Chairman Schiff, something ought to be done because he might break the law. Nonsense.
Less trump hating more history.
It’s getting more difficult to listen bipartisanly when this is directed at our current president. No one was worried when other presidents had that power. Ur silly silly men. This is and should be advertised as fiction.
Too much typical left politics
I used to like listening to Dan's Addendum but it's no longer hardcore history and it's too much Dan's view of things and not history. I've also noticed that Dan's has a mild case of TDS. It's just not interesting to me.
WRT to 1917 I was amazed that Dan liked the movie. I thought it sucked, really sucked. Dan says he likes the look of the film and I guess some people just like dumb blonds. Those dumb blonds can sure look good but once they open their mouths and tell their story...
Great small fix while waiting for a Hardcore History!
Love this format. Dan provides fascinating insights and information for fellow fans of history. The addendum format also gives a great small fix to satiate my Hardcore History addiction between those wonderfully large episodes. Hope Dan keeps this format, assuming it works for his life/needs.
Dan makes ancient history interesting
Sad to be leaving
I love history. Only Dan make you anxious for his next lesson. I haven’t heard anyone else who makes these topics interesting and want to listen for the next issue. I only wish we didn’t have to wait so long between his podcasts.
This is great!
This is one of the best history podcasts ever. Very
Now history lover
As a sociologist (not professional), I LOVE this podcast. If only I had had a history teacher or professor like this!
Nothing to add that hasn’t already been said. Simply fantastic.
Simply The Best
It’s a treat when we get a new episode. Thank you very much
Keeps getting better
Everything is going to hell but these journalists are able to make it clear and wryly funny!
Dan’s the man
I love dans work and his passion for history bleeds through the microphone. This latest offer on Alexander’s mother is just another example of why he is Dan the great of podcasts!
Just what I like
It was certainly worth waiting for, an excellent episode.
and a little more Ben
We hardly ever get an episode. I totally forget about this bc there are so many other great podcasts that are consistent, not a guessing game as to if an episode will ever come agIn...
Bring it back plzzzzzzzzzzzz
Really well done
I believe that this is one of the best and most well though out podcasts out there. Really well done and he has my trust!
Dan Carlin is Awesome
Seriously, a top-notch history geek and orator with a knack for storytelling.
Dan Carlin!!! 🔥🔥🔥
We love u Dan Carlin, don’t stop doing what u do best!
Dan is the best
There is no one as humble, smart, potent, passionate, or well rounded than dan. I will be a lifelong fan.

One Unadorned Voice = Suspense
Someone said in a review that Carlin is the best that’s ever done it. I think that’s accurate. He really takes you along in his thinking and somehow makes a show without any music or effects (which is key) completely suspenseful. I hope he never messes with the formula. I’d listen to him recount the history of peanut butter or paper clips.
Best Podcast I’ve Found
Dan will often tell you he’s not an historian. He has to, because his knowledge and insight into history, and the energy with which he tells it, would surely lead you to believe he is. Discussing in depth topics ranging from amazing Germany to Assyrian kings, he makes history come alive in a way you only wish your college professors could have. The wait between episodes is long, but that just gives you time to listen to Blueprint for Armageddon for the fifth time (and still discover new info).
The best there is
Dan Carlin frequently says he is not a historian, but each episode of this series undercuts his case. Maybe he would agree that he is a master storyteller: the lecturer as artist; colorizing the black and whites characters of history.
If you like history, you like digging deep, and you really dig informative, intelligent, and entertaining talks, you're going to love this podcast. Seriously. This is the best there is.
Dan Carlin Delivers
He captures that childlike obsession in his recordings and it’s downright infectious.
I have been following Hardcore History for about four years now and I cannot get enough. Each show is worth more than a single listening, richer than cheesecake Dan’s episodes are the mental meal I’ve craved and continue to with a wanton desire
Extremely entertaining and enlightening!
Seriously a knock out program. Guy deserves his own tv show.
The only problem with this show is there isn’t enough. 26/5 stars.
Best to ever do it
Nothing Beats Dan Carlin. Period.
The best historic storytelling of all time.
A great podcast
Highly recommended for anyone who loves and appreciates history. This is one of the few podcasts I subscribe to.
Dang good stuff
A- grade performance
Numerous hours listening
