Dan, I cannot express sufficiently my appreciation for the the outstanding attention to detail in your exhaustive research, andyour ability to articulate, the personal accounts from those involved in these events. Dan, your Hardccore History Volumes are worthy of being recorded in the National Archives, better yet, inclusion to any data about the human race that is projected into the celestial universe. Thank You for what you do, and know that my $10 per month in support is fractionally representative my appreciation of the historical erudtion I receive from these podcasts.

Spanish civil war
It would be awesome if this podcast did a story abour the spanish civil war and all the political sides that were involved plus how the anarchists were trying to biuld their utopian society. It would be fun to hear how that war is relevant to this day and how it can be reflected upon.

Cant get enough
Best podcast for history fans! Dan Carlin gives his audience the rich details, commentary, and narrative that keeps you on the edge of your seat podcast after podcast. I appreciate the fact that he also gives you quotes and sources for many of his topics that affords the listener additional material to pic up whee he leaves off and or for more information on the vast subjects and details contained in his podcasts. I cannot wait to play these to my son & daughter as they grow up to hear the history everyone should know.

Outstanding Thoughts on History
I love Dans analysis of many pivotal moments in history that you never knew of without researching yourself. The Fall of Nineveh Show for example is about an empire that was never even mentioned in my College Ancient Mesopotamia Course, but considering their influence is amazing that I never learned of the Assyrian Empire.

Im a huge fan of Dan Carlins Hardcore History podcasts. If youre new to them, I encourage you to listen to all the back episodes you can get hold of. There are so many new insights into historical perspective; a sense of what it may have been like to actually experience the events described with a passion for the subject by Dan Carlin.

Dan is a fantastic storyteller. I will sometimes drive my high school age son and his buddies to and from snowboarding - one hour each way - and my "fee" is that they have to listen to one of his Hardcore History podcasts. They always pretend to hate it, but then Ill overhear them talking about some of the events they just heard and have a discussion about it.

Thors Angels
Another four-hour program? It popped up in iTunes, and I wondered what Dan was thinking. I prefer the moderately-sized hour-long programs ... or at least I thought I did. This was great listening. The audio book format is worth the wait between episodes. Unfortunately, I devoured it, but it was fantastic! A little touch of Scythia-worship (starting to expect that), but it really did hit a departure in content from the last few episodes on Rome (loved them, but ready for something new). How about something on the Zulus or the founding of Australia or pirates or ... the Persians. Whatever Dan thinks actually. Keep em coming!
Submitted By: wittmaier
(542,621 on 1-2012)

A very engaging podcast that is well thought out and seldom has a dull moment. Considering it's just one guy at the mic reading out a script to himself, he manages to generally maintain a coherent narrative to historical discussions or a compelling line of argument to his analyses. It's the only historical podcast I listen to. My only complaint is that it doesn't come out often enough, and when it does come out, it's frequently really long. Thanks for your hard work, Dan.

Not History like I knew it from school
This is not a history lesson but storytelling on a grand scale that just happens to be historical in nature, it has lessons for all of us today. As Dan has alluded to History has destoryed fiction for me as no one would belive a fiction writer is they come up with some of the stuff from our past. Has made me thirst for more knowledge.

Fresh Approach
Dans ability to take unique perspectives across a variety of historical periods and topics is refreshing. If youre looking for a straight forward orthodox approach this isnt the place. Dan takes the time to illustrate both on the ground human experiences and the situations that led to the topic at hand. If you enjoy putting yourself in the shoes of history and taking a ride, please give yourself the gift of Dan Carlin!

Carlins Hardcore History should be required listening for any high school or college history student. Since listening to the show, history has come alive in my mind. The show has created a monster of a trivia buff in me, and Ive been bombarding my friends and family with "You wouldnt believe what Hannibal did in the second Punic War," "Did you know Apaches were absolute bad@#$*%?" and so on. Listen to the show. Become an obnoxious know-it-all, too. The show is awesome, and you wont regret it.

Prepare to be enlightened
If Dan Carlin and his show, Hardcore History, could be described in one word (which it can?t) the word would be ?enlightening.? The reason I would choose this word is because Mr. Carlin selects topics and subjects throughout history that narrow one?s thought process. One reason why some people don?t like history is because it?s just too broad. Classroom history tends to be organized in a ?He/She went here on this date and did this.? It sucks all of the emotion and ideology out of the subject. Mr. Carlin?s topics tend to personalize history, and paint a vivid emotional and personalized picture of what a given event was actually like through the eyes of the participants and witnesses. One of Mr. Carlin?s best and most popular recordings (at least in this reviewer?s humble opinion) is a series titled ?Ghosts of the Ostfront.? The series chronicles the many battles and hardships faced by both the Germans and the Soviets on the Eastern front of WWII. Most Americans tend to forget that the troops our country bravely sacrificed to rid the world of Nazis in Europe are miniscule in comparison to the sacrifice of the Soviet Union. A listener could not possibly listen to this series without a feeling of acumen and sympathy. To say that this series is eye opening is quite the understatement. By listening to Mr. Carlin?s ?Ghosts of the Ostfront? series one gets a concise process for how that battlefront progressed. One of the best characteristics of Hardcore History is that it doesn?t require any previous education. Having a solid foundation on which to build is helpful, but not necessary to learn from, enjoy, or be entertained by the show. Mr. Carlin actually refers to himself as a ?fan? of history as opposed to an educator or expert. This idea is prevalent throughout the series because of Mr. Carlin?s conversational as opposed to lecture style. He tends to pose questions instead of answering them. Some could find this style frustrating, but so much of history is speculation, so avoiding definitive answers is often the best approach. He regularly encourages his listeners to seek further information of any given subject through a variety of mediums (books, films, lectures, etc.). It?s not uncommon for one to add myriad books and publications to his or her ?to read? lists after a given episode of Hardcore History. To give an appropriate analogy: With Hardcore History, Dan Carlin leads his listeners to the edge of the cliff. Once there, the listener decides whether or not to jump.

"Be There" History
A bit voyeuristic at times, often wallowing in the tragedy, sorrow and gore of epic historical events. However, when Mr Carlin hits his stride, the results can be transporting. This is "be there" history. Some episodes work better than others, and recently the producers have dispensed with the distracting sound effects of earlier podcasts: this is a change for the better, and probably streamlines the production process, which can often run into gaps of several weeks between releases. The recent series on the Russian Front of WWII was particularly gripping. Mr Carlin was very effective in portraying the scale of the grim struggle in the East and contrasting it against the more traditional war occuring in the West. Highly recommended.

Historical Fiction
An acquaintance of mine suggested I listen to "Ghosts of the Ostfront". I was very disappointed. Historians are supposed to be detached and objective, yet from the very beginning Carlin depicts this as a "bad guy versus bad guy story" and inserts his political views by blaming the growth as government as for why Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union were such brutal dictatorships. When it comes to the facts, he draws heavily on memoirs and personal accounts, which anyone with common sense knows is going to be biased. He uses quotations we now know to be without source (such as Stalin's "the death of one person is a tragedy; the deaths of millions is a statistic"). He also advances the popular misconception that Soviet forces shot their own fleeing soldiers regularly, omitting the fact that this order was rarely implemented and was eventually dropped altogether. I imagine Carlin's podcast is popular not because it is accurate but rather because, like Hollywood films, he plays fast and loose in order to spice things up and make them more dramatic and to conform with what most people already believe about events. While his intention of focusing on rarely discussed aspects of history is commendable, it might be better if people were left ignorant than misinformed. I would suggest anyone checking out this podcast to do their own research and to trust neutral, unbiased sources.

Outstanding!!!!! Learned about the US involvement in WWII and little about the relationships between Germany & Russia. Also little about how brutal Stalin was and the high death rate. Thanks so much - this is the closest I can get to time travel. -Jim Dodd Maryland

The Best of the Best
Of all the history podcasts available, Dan Carlins Hardcore History is several notches above everyone else. Actually, this show is several notches above just about every history book, television program or movie I have ever seen. Carlins unique perspective as "not a historian, only a student" enables him to bring history alive in a way seldom seen in the history of, well, history. Every show is riveting: fascinating, well-researched and exciting to listen to. Bravo to Dan and Ben for a job well done, time and again.

History w/ Context & Perspective
Dan Carlins Hardcore History breathes life into the ghosts of our past. All too often we are so absorbed in our modern day outlook that we have no real context, for our history. Mr. Carlin offers a glimpse of those days gone by with a fervor that well represents the passion, fear, & melodrama that we humans live each day.

Unparalleled intellectual stimulation
I have been a history buff my entire life and grew up watching the History Channel and reading history books. But Dan offers a very unique insight into the past that conventional sources do not. I come away with a fresh perspective at subjects that I thought I knew inside and out. He intersperses the telling of historical events with clever commentary and comparison in a way that really humanizes struggles and leaves me pondering for days afterward how I would have acted were I in the same era. Friends who arent usually into history love listening to the show because its very educational, entertaining and gripping, without requiring any background knowledge on the subject to follow along. My only complaint would be that they dont come out often enough!

What guy would not love history had it not revealed the tumultuous risk, gore, glory, megalomania, ineptitude, talent, bravery, cowardice, artifice and honor that makes up every show of Hardcore History. Prior to this, I had the the date of the Stamp Act memorized and could say things like "No taxation without representation" since fifth grade....a phrase that meant a lot to me then. The effort put in to presenting each topic shows in every podcast. Well worth your time.

Reignited my interest in History
I commute 45 mins each way and am avidly listening to Dan Carlins "Hardcore History" every day. Im currently finishing the 4 part series on Ghosts of the Ostfront about the Russian:German theater of WWII and am completely caught up in it. Dan Carlins facts, enthusiasm and delivery makes History fascinating. Ive also listened to some of his Blitzes and theyre equally as good. Highest recommendation for a Podcast!

Just finished listening to the final episode of Ghosts of the Ostfront. Just incredible. This has to be largest and saddest story of the 20th Century and maybe any century. Anyone interested in protecting and defending the thin veneer of civilization some of us are lucky enough to be born into should listen to this series, and maybe a few times. It boggles the mind what horror a couple of evil charismatic leaders unleashed on this world.

Incredible period
I am so hooked on the Ghosts of the Eastern front series, although all episodes of Hardcore History are incredible. Dan Carlin, please continue to bring the historical importance of this part of the Great War. My family is Polish and as a child I was always reminded of the great hardships that this war brought to mankind . My grandfather was in the Polish cavalry at the Polish front when the Germans invaded. After the defeat his regiment was disbanded. He returned a broken man. I was told that for the most part the German military and the Officer core were very proffesional and did not agree with the high command. I can go on and on. Dan, you have given me the vivid realization of what my parents were trying to make me understand. Thank you! Bernard

I have yet to find a more enganging & digestible podcast than Dan Carlins Hardcore History. Its leagues ahead of anyone else & the quality of research is impeccable. Ive happily paid for many episodes and await each new one impatiently. Each episode is well planned yet spontaneous and it has none of the self-important, slow-talking, bored pace of some podcasts (the readers of which often seem think they are the most profound, original broadcasters who are owed an audience). Dan is a speaker of real quality. His opinions have depth and dimension. Hes in the same league as BBC Radio 4. Whens the next episode?

Carlin is awesome. His passionate love of historical knowledge is only matched by his eagerness to share it. Rather than go the route of endless lists of names and dates, he is most interested in what it must have been like to be there at that moment. He hammers home the human element of historical events and reminds us at all times that those people back then were reall people, like us. It really puts things in perspective and makes history stand out as real life.

Statuatory warning
Dan Carlin is addictive. Beware. I can never wait for his next show to come out. His shows take time to come out. Speed is a cost of quality, like Dan says. I end up listening to the same shows again and again until the next one. And I'm not even a history fan.

can't believe this war stuff is so fascinating--I'm more an art history type. But it gives me insight into the art too.

Greatest History Teacher in the Universe!
Dan Carlin will make you care about history. He will put you on the battlefield, carry you through the temples, and transport you to periods in time that are all but forgotten. This is, hands down, my favorite Podcast. But more importantly, it has become the one example in ANY medium that I now anxiously look forward to every month. I can watch any tv show or movie pretty much anytime. I read books often but never anticipate something before its release. However, Dan Carlins podcast is the one form of entertainment and enlightenment that I devour as soon and as fast as possible and then eagerly await the next installment.

Bringing it to Life
Nobody brings history to life like Dan Carlin. First, he did the Scythians warriors - and made the listener imagine what it must have been like facing the Huns or Mongols. Second, he does the Punic Wars, and in this podcast, you imagine what it must have been to be a Roman Soldier about to be massacred at Cannae. And just when you think he cant top those, he does the battle of Stalingrad. Ive watched documentaries, read books and so on but there is nobody who puts you there like Dan Carlin. Hes essential listening for one who wants to truly imagine what it must have been like.

Nothings Quiet on the Eastern Front
Dan keeps apologizing to his listeners via the website for the length of the Ostfront series of HH episodes, but for those of us who enjoy WWII history -- and I imagine many who dont care that much -- this has been a fascinating look at an amazingly deadly part of World War II which most westerners ignore despite wreaking a death toll greater than many wars combined. As always it is more than just an array of facts, and actually a deep look at the events and experience of this theatre of the war.

The problem is that I am re-listening to older Hardcore podcasts because well I like them so much. Ghosts of the Ostfront has to be one of the most compelling stories I've heard you speak about and your descriptions paint many visions as I can see what is happening in my head often. I know there is only so much you can do and I look forward to more upcoming episodes. I am also a"fan" of history and your show leaves me wanting to know more and I do as a hobby.

Dan is passionate. He loves to talk and he love talking about issues (current or historical alike). He grabs the bull by the horn and does not recoil from being controversial. His History Shows are not as frequent as I would like but they are very thoroughly researched and always presented from a very personal perspective. His passion for the truth and compassion with the victims of cruelty and abuse and criticism of the winner as well as the loser makes him the unique voice I always listen to as soon as I download.

Simply a Paramount telling of an event so vast to be compassed in any one setting. and not only opens the door to vast amount of discussions in regards on collective punishments, the nationalistic view of a country under siege, and the very nature of mans inhumanity to man... an oxymoron proven throughout the history of man kind itself...

He seems to know when detail is important and when to gloss over things. His podcasts are recyclable for multiple listenings. Help support this show, so he can produce more. I will be.

The solid B I received in my introduction to western civilization class last semester was only possible because I listen to your show. I really had no interest in World history till I got an I pod for Christmas in 07, after getting turned onto your program. I was hooked. I was my professors favorite student because I could talk on his level. I was giving a B because in the words of my Cambridge educated professor I was the only one in the class he could have a interesting conversation with. Thanks Dan, when I get my student loans paid off to the feds, I will get my belated tuition into to you. Thanks for helping my see the how the past affects my everyday life.

One of the best aspects is Dan Carlins humanity and the way he can bring history alive so you almost believe that you were actually seeing the events unfold.

This is my favorite podcast, by far. Even though I may not always agree with Dan, I find that he makes me think, and gets my curiosity going about many aspects of history. He helps me to see different perspectives about events in history. His show is great for the history buff - it always gives a background on the issues and events he is highlighting, but at the same time he doesnt talk down to his listeners. His shows are always well-planned, well-produced, and fascinating. Highly recommended!

History alive
Once again I watched a TV documentary of Hannibal,and his fight with Rome. I had never had an ounce of interest in either until one day bored to death at my job I downloaded one of Dans history podcasts. Since then I was fascinated with everything to do with Hannibal,and Carthage. After listening to Dan I find it dissapointing to watch a TV documentary or movie,regarding either.Not because there are slight varyations,but because of the complete lack of enthusiasm on the part of the television broadcasts. I have such vivid pictures imbedded in my mind of the battles as described by Dan that the TV show seem weak and leave you feeling empty ,and that they didnt finish the job. This goes for all Dans history podcasts ,I just loved them all . If your reading this and havnt listen to Dans history lessons you dont know what your missing. Dans other site is just as captivating but me being a Canadian aye,I find it to political ,or maybe I should say Americanized ( of coarse ,what else would it be?) Anyway we dont have any Dans up here and if you folks dont like his veiws on politics please chase him out of the country ,chase him north! Neil

Brilliant Discourse
I ran across Hardcore history in iTunes when I got tired of listening to "Car Talk". I downloaded one Hardcore History podcast. listened to it and got the rest. I just ordered the first 9 directly from Dan Carlin website. 2 of my colleagues at work heard me talk about the wonderful history lesson and the Dans insights. They are doing the same. If only history were taught like this in college. I would have rushed to the store to buy books to fill in the gaps. I didnt do it then but Im doing it now. An understanding of several thousand years of human history puts the current world into better focus. Thanks Dan,

Exceptionally awesome and elucidating
I used to like listening to talk radio shows, mainly because they were the closest thing I could find to someone presenting an argument, however weak the attempt was. Dans presentations are amazing. His arguments are very well formed, and typically the only way you can find fault with them is to disagree with his initial premise. I look forward to every one of his shows.

Why Hardcore History is so good
Ive listened to a number of history podcasts. Many of these make the mistake of not realising that there is a difference between a piece of writing and a podcast. Dan Carlin doesnt make this mistake. His podcast genuinely makes history come alive.

Absolutely brilliant
Dan Carlins approach is to history is brilliant. Too often history presented in a boring, matter of fact way; or else is is told in a way that is too broad to be relatable. Dan presents the facts; however, he also brings an exciting, very human element to all the stories. The listener really gains, inasmuch as is possible, some understanding of what it was like to be a Roman soldier, or a peasant during the plague. I highly recommend this podcast, even for those who have been bored by history in the past.

Dan makes history come alive; take it from a history professor. He delves into the human side of history. We can read that in 116 B.C. Carthage was sacked. Dan takes it a step further and looks at what exactly that entails and the human dramas that played out.

History for All of Us
I was permanently bored of history classes in school. If I had a teacher with the enthusiasm and panache of Dan Carlin I would have been a history fan at 9 instead of at 40. Dan Carlin brings history to life in a way I never believed possible without multimillion dollar special effects. Dan uses my own imagination in a way the movies never can.

Greatest history ever.
I heard Dans Punic wars ,all three of them .Wait a minute ,I listened to every history podcast of his. I never enjoyed myself more .I was running a caterpillar tractor at work and with my MP3 player it was great.I listened to each one several times ,some (like the 1st and 2nd punic wars )probably 10 times or more .Then like an addict having tated the delights ,I went searching for more ,Thats what really screwed things up , I found some history podcast site ,another one about the spy museum. I gotta say they were disgusting ,after listening to Dans enthuseism and detailed podcasts I wondered if these other guys had ever heard of his shows .These guys talk monotone ,unbeleivable ,and they dont go in any detail .When I listened to a few I found it irritating ,frusterating and ,just boring as can be .. The sad part is that Dan doesnt have a new one every day.Dans history lessons are so extremley interesting and,packed with his comments regarding how he looks at the situation being discussed.You just cant stop listening .Id have my little ear things pluged in and the forman would really upset me if he came to talk about what do do next or some other mundane thing ,here I was in the middle of Hannibal crossing the Alps ,and this dunderhead wants to talk about buldozing some hillside .I finally learned that if I shut the MP3 player off ,it would start where It left off,so it wasnt so bad as at first ..Mind you I didnt mind listening over from the start again ,but when your caught up in Dans stories and someone interfears you fell like cutting the guys head off with one of those little Roman swords.. I didnt have a sword luckilly for my boss. Neil

Dan Carlin does so well to capture the essence of historical events. He touches on points that are not usually mentioned, and gives fantastic illustration of why or how some of the biggest moments in history came about. He manages to place his listeners on a Roman battlefield, or in a city being sacked by a conquering army, or at a negotiation between two great empires that will decide the fate of civilization.

Well worth the listen!
The amount of work and care that go into this podcast are very evident. It is very entertaining and informative. You dont mentally wander off with this guy. You will be spellbound until the end as I am. I only wish the episodes come out every couple of days instead of months. I love learning about history and the back stories of people and events, others come close, but they are just not Dan Carlin. I bought the CD (the early shows) and loved it. I also enjoy Dans "Common Sense" program. I never really was interested in politics before but he has me becomming a bit of a political animal. Keep it up Dan (and Ben, if you exist).

Greatly varied topics that are sure to please any history fan. In fact, Dan is much more interesting than the History Channel on cable or any history show Ive ever seen.; his insight is razor-sharp and the presentation is quite dramatic. Unlike other history sources, he isnt afraid to talk about something other than simply WW2 over and over again. Thank God he doesnt try to cater to idiots by talking about space aliens.

My favorite Podcast
HH can be incredibly moving and reflective on times past and now...and is about the human condition as much as anything. As a result of Dans presentation, history is revealed in a different light, often riveting (the Punic Wars was sensational). Without an appreciation of the past, we are doomed to make the same world issues or our personal lives...learn from the experiences of the past, save yourself a lot of grief and become un-doomed with DC and the HH podcast

THE history podcast
History is one of the few podcast genres where the quality of offerings is generally high and where there are many standout offerings (shows like 12 Byzantine Rulers and the History of Rome). But this show stands astride the world of history podcasts like a colossus. As Dan says, this is a history show for history buffs, more of a commentary than a chronology. But you dont need a background in the subject of a particular podcast to enjoy it. Dans passion is infectious and will cause you to do your own research. One of my friends read 1000 pages of Roman history after listening to the first two Punic Wars episodes. Dont be surprised if it happens to you.

Dan Is The Man
Hardcore History is one of the best shows ever, worth hearing again and again, after all the future may be uncertain, but history is forever! Honestly a show to bring the past alive in ways that engage you with the experience of it, not a bunch of facts and figures, and it also encourages one assess their own times, places and experiences...A+

Dan Carlin, a sell professed non-historian, takes a look at areas of world history that interest him. He takes his interest and transfers it to the listener providing a, often irreverent, view of history. His lack of "historian" credentials is a benefit to the listener because Mr. Carlin often looks at history from an unconventional direction, take a look at his podcast on drugs/booze and Hitler, Alexander, etc...

The Best?
This is quite possibly the best podcast around. It's entertaining, factually sound, and doesn't really date. Some podcasts are available waaaay past their use-by date. Hardcore History actually stands up to repeated listenings and like all good history discussions really takes you to the time and place of the events ie talking about Hannibal and his elephants Dan asks you to think about fighting an elephant. Now you know what fear is right? To use a baseball analogy (even though i'm a kiwi so cricket is the real sport!) Dan hits it out of the park nearly every time!!!! 9.9/10

Hardcore History Podcast
Oct 14 2008 Wow Dan! I could not believe what I was hearing. Last Thursday: Just before leaving home (Houston) for an extended work program on a small vessel in the Atlantic, I decide to down load Dan Carlin?s Hardcore History podcast. I?m not much for history, but what the heck; I?ve got a bit of room left on my IPOD so I might as well fill it up. I don?t have time to listen (I?ve got a plane to catch) so I?ll just wait until I get on board the vessel and give it a shot. Last Night: So, here I am, 50 miles off the coast of Nigeria; in my cabin; in my bunk and I can not sleep. I should be sleeping; the sea swells are causing a nice slow vessel roll and I can see the mid night sky through my cabin window; a very peaceful and calm setting indeed. But, I can not sleep. I?ve got to find something to put me out so I grab my IPOD thinking that this History podcast thingy should do the trick. The Punic Wars; that should be a real sleeper! I get relaxed in bed and start up the podcast. WOW, right off the bat, I can not believe what I?m hearing. I have never heard history presented so dramatically and in such terms that I can understand. For the next 2 hours I listen to Punic Nightmares I & II. I?m blown away. Presentation, format and show content: I have never heard anything as mind bowing from a podcast. The back ground sounds really add to the texture of the subject. As the vessel continues its slow roll and I gaze up at the starry night, I?m total carried away back in time as I listen to the Punic Wars. Dan Carlin you?ve got another vote, another donation and another purchase. Thanks, John Guild

If only Dan Carlin would have been my history teacher in high school, I may have been inspired to pursue a more fulfilling major in college. His excitement for whatever he is discussing makes this podcast educational AND thoroughly entertaining, something that even in todays fast-paced, high-budget, cable-TV History Channel age is missing. His current episodes on the Punic Wars are the most engaging yet, and is guaranteed to produce an intellectual orgasm.

Finally, someone has figured out how to keep history exciting and relevent , i hate seminar type monologes with no type of drift toward anything exciting but people this podcast is the meat and potatoes of podcasts, interesting "tid-bits" of info on everything from vikings to nazi-occultists now that ladies and gentleman will keep me listening! keep up the solid work Dan and Co.

This show is great, spectacular, mind blowing, and inspires me to pick up a book. HOWEVER, I am starving in more ways than one. The past few shows have been aimed at getting the listeners more, even had a blitz show.... yet the shows are as slow as ever. People LISTEN, if you like it TELL others (especially your rich friends wholl pay a starbucks price to hear it) so Dan can hire a staff or something to get there shows out more often.

Seriously people, if you like to hear a good story, and like learning about history in terms you can relate to, check out this podcast. Dans episode on "the what ifs of 1066" was absolutely enthralling! A great podcast to listen to while working out, or while lying in bed at night!

I was never interested in history growing up, but... all of that has changed. Dans way of telling history is so compelling and intriguing that it is like a great book. Once I start listening to him I dont want to stop.... and then he also has inspired me to do more reading on the subjects on my own. The only negative.... DO MORE and DO THEM MORE OFTEN!!!

It's wonderfully insightful, cleverly put together and incredibly engaging. Dan captures the spirit of excitement and brings history alive in a way no 'real' historian can.

The best show out there
Encompassing POVs far and wide to allow us to reflect and actually forge our own opinion on specific historical facts, rather than to sheepily accept the spoon-feeding what teachers taught us (which was more often than ever lacks a variety of POVs and tends to drill in a unique & common opinion all SHOULD share) Hardcore history is the best show there is out there.
Submitted By: vsouffay
(396,973 on 6-2008)

A wonderful show
Hardcore history is probably the best history show out there for the simple reason that it is done by a History buff, not a Historian. We dont have a specific school of thinking drilled into us - but a show that tries to be as objective as possible on a specific subject - even if it sometimes goes beyond the Politically Correct = but i personally believe that that is what makes the strength of the show. It forces us to think from a different point of view, it forces us to adapt our reasoning and challenge what we would normally take for granted. an excellent show.

If so, I think you could have a really great episode about that war and how it was or was not taken into account when the United States invaded Iraq.

Best Political Commentary and Analysis Podcast out there - Hands Down.
While I may not agree with him on every issue, I find Dan Carlins stripped down, back-to-basics and "common sense" view of American politics and foreign affairs to be truly refreshing. In the sea of white-noise blared by CNN, ABC, Fox News and other "old media" outlets, Dan Carlin stands out as the only thumb thats sore for the right reasons. Seems somewhere in the middle lies the U.S. Constitution, and simply applying some of its more innovative principles greatly simplifies our countries current situation. Ive benefitted greatly from taking the time to tune in, and will definitely recommend this to anyone else out there whos sick of the endless, petty bickering between Left *and* Right. Thanks Mr. Carlin, Noel S.

the real history
i am a both a student and teacher of history. my specific area of study is historiography; that is how history should be researched and written. my influences are postmodernism and postcolonialism and so i beleive in an eclectic history that is stylistically cosmopolitan; a history that should inspire and excite; not an insipid and dull history that inspires sleep and ennui. dan carlins history is the former - bold, exciting. challenging, refreshing and stylistically a breath of frswh air. i wish i had his history in high school.

Hardcore History ROCKS!
Great podcast! Consistently interesting, insightful, illuminating, entertaining, thought provoking, and thoroughly riveting content & presentation. Dont change a thing. It doesnt get any better than this. I donated and will continue to do so. The two main reasons I think your history podcast is so much better than the others are: - CONTEXT AND INSIGHTS. Rather than focus on timelines and superficial examinations of historical "facts" as most other history presentations do, you provide context in a way that modern listener can relate to and you extract insights from events, their relationships and the motives driving the events. A unique, illuminating and hugely satisfying approach. Your approach to history provides exactly what is LACKING in most other accounts of history, whether audible or otherwise. - PACING. your pacing is perfect and allows time for the listener to digest an idea before you continue to the next, all while retaining a light, relaxed, entertaining feel. Too many podcasters speed from one detail or idea to the next---The listener has no chance to absorb and reflect on the meaning or connection with other events.

Best use of podcast ever
Dan Carlins compilation of history is like nothing else of its kind. In a highly unique, detailed, intricate, and exciting way, Carlin takes the listener on a journey through the history of man kind. Through that journey, he stops and investigates deeply into the corners and alleys of what is behind the well known history, from the rise and fall of Assyria, to the life and death of Alexander the Great, to the Norman Invasion of 1066, to the German Third Reich of World War II. The best part of it all is, he aint stopping yet.

A very well done podcast. Mr Carlins interest in history is obvious and contagious. The hardcore could be taken to mean this might be hard to listen to by anyone other then a serious history buff. I can tell you this isnt the case. Mr Carlin isnt really interested in giving a step by step lecture series on history starting at some point chosen by him and moving toward our present times. No, Mr Carlin likes to talk about important events in history that interest him, and that you will find interesting and or compelling. The presenter has a very interesting meter, and keeps the listener involved, and wanting more. And that seems to be the real point, get you involved and wanting do some fact checking/research of your own. A very interesting and enjoyable presentation!!!!

A baby History fan
I love your show. I see it as a rebellious way to combat what appears to be the intentional dumbing down society suffers at the hands of corporate media. It seems that people, like politicians, have short memories, and need to be reminded that "theres nothing new under the sun". Do your thing brother!!

Good show, not sure about extras
The core of this show, with Dan Carlin speaking about different aspects of history, is phenomonal. Its less about details (although there are many of those) and more about analyzing what it meant to live at the time, what lessons we learn for our time. Theyve just recently started having guest speakers on periodically to increase the frequency of new episodes, and the first one was so-so. Im much more excited for the regular podcasts. But overall one of the best podcasts Ive ever found. Thoroughly enjoyable, and worth the buck an episode they ask for.

Dan doesnt recount history event by event, he gives an overview and hes mostly interested in the ramifications of things in the past -- how history begat history, and how if certain often tiny things didnt happen the way they did, many things would have turned quite differently. fascinating and presented very humbly in an enthusiast, as opposed to academic style

love them all Dan, both the history and the common sense.

Do a show on "Pasha Gordon" and Kartoum, the Madi muslim revolution in the 1880s and how it died out etc. So much to talk about, so little time. Thanks Dan, will make another contribution this month.

Dark Corners Illuminated
Carlins reading of odd aspects of ancient history comes from the POV of life lessons for the living. His has a talent for illuminating the obscure and ironic which makes relearning what we thought we already knew a double pleasure. Bill

Amazingly original insight. I feel originality is the most important aspect of podcasting, at least when it comes to historical subjects, otherwise it just sounds like someone reading a Wikipedia article. Odd way of pausing, but do not let it lead you astray. One you listen for a few minutes, it actually sounds good, and you dont notice the odd pauses.

Just found this and Common Sense, and man do we need more on the history. I like the analogy of boxers vs. punchers, and it made me think -- dont we have some boxers as well? Isnt that what the special forces are all about (although we dont use them too effectively)? Didnt the Scottish Highlanders run a boxer-type hit and run campaign against the British in the early 18th C. and push nearly all the way to London, and didnt they finally fail when they fought the Brits on the flatlands at Inverness? Didnt some of the minutemen fight boxer-style? Just some thoughts -- I dont think the boxing-style of warfare is particular to the East and Middle East, just more prominent (and I think terrain plays a large part in that).

If you havent listened to any of this show yet, start with the first, and youll quickly realize that his incisive intellect is staggering when directed at the issues he chooses to highlight in this unique podcast.

Hardcore History with Dan Carlin
Id like to throw in my positive vote for Dan Carlin & his "Hardcore History" podscast. Dan brings a refreshing & direct delivery of events in the past that have not often been tied together in our Western Civilizationized historical education. He doesnt pull punches, but neither does he spin based on personal political perspective, which is rare in these days.

To tout one show in particular: I had never understood so clearly how different the pre- and post-WWI worlds were from one another, or for that matter, exactly WHY the conflict was fought as a trench war. Great work, Ben and Dan. Also, you might want to check out Dan Carlins other podcast, Common Sense. Its a political show, and if youre into that sort of thing, youll probably like it, because its done really well. Ethan

History with Pizazz
This Podcast teaches, entertains and inspires. It lays out history in a way that is incredibly approachable. It relates history to our current state of politics and culture. I imagine that even those who are typically bored to death by history would be fascinated with this podcast. Those who have even a remote interest in history will be blown away. My only complaint is the that there are not more of them more often for longer.

Historical Talk Show
At last, a talk show that does not require me to take a political stance and teaches at the same time. Why didnt someone think of this before. Many congratulations on a job well done. I suggest you provide an area for listeners to submit topics, i.e. history of Captain Cooks effect on the world, Aviation, Battle of Mid-Way, history of Australia and other areas visited so commonly these days. A good historical perspective is possibly the best way to make the most of a visit. Litte known things like, why is Brazil Portuguese and not Spanish? Dont get me started - the ideas are unlimited.

Dan gets me going--makes me want to wave my hands in the air and sing aaaaamen! He makes history a veritable epiphany-a-minute. I only wish that the episodes came more frequently. I guess I had better reach for my wallet.

I really enjoy how Mr. Carlin puts events into a larger cultural and historical perspective...taking an event, and zooming out to show you the scene that led up to it, and ramifications that followed. If my high school history teacher had this approach to history, Id have been a history major in college...and probably slinging burgers now - so maybe it was a good thing he didnt.
