Dan Carlin's Hardcore History

By 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.

Awesome, just awesome!

I never thought that I would enjoy listening to history stuff as mush as when listening Hardcore History. Still trying to find other history podcasts that can come close to this one! Thanks! :)

A brilliant, brilliant (hi)story teller

Dan Carlin relates key moments in history from exiting, interesting, relevant and surprising angles. Highly addictive and thought provoking.

Very interesting and well done.

I should very much like to buy them all, start with the free and get hooked.
I listen to Hardcore History while painting Warhammer, walking or whenever I can.
