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.

Very compelling storytelling

Like a fine wine this podcast needs its time to release its produce but every episode is a finely built up, thoroughly researched and most compelling promenade through history’s most extreme conflicts and wars. Not only for the provision of astounding and surprising facts - as many historians could give you - but especially for the unique human experiences and on-the-ground-view of these extreme chapters of human history.
