Dan Carlin's Hardcore History

Dan Carlin

In "Hardcore History" journalist and broadcaster Dan Carlin takes his "Martian", unorthodox way of thinking and applies it to the past. Was Alexander the Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilization ever fall like civilizations from past eras? This isn't academic history (and Carlin isn't a historian) but the podcast's unique blend of high drama, masterful narration and Twilight Zone-style twists has entertained millions of listeners.

    Actually, best podcast. The reason I listen to podcasts at all - to fill the time between Hardcore History episodes.

  • Best work

    This is where Dan shines. This is where he seems to do his best work although I don’t think he is any kind of super-historian but at a basic level he works at his better analysis and isn’t bad to listen to. Nobody should ever consider only one source on history but Dan is not the worst place to start study of specific issues and this is where his “amateur” status disables him the least because he seems to do his best to do the work of that discipline (historiograghic research). more
