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.

Outstanding

This podcast is one of my all-time favourites. Dan’s meticulousness, attention to detail, commitment to the overarching narrative and presentation style make this a must-listen for fans of history. Long time listeners will know that Christmas comes approximately 3-4 times a year.

Hardcore history is the best stuff ever.

I think I’ve listened to every hardcore history podcast ever made, at least four to five times each. Still want to listen again. Started reading lots of history too. HEY DAN, DO A 25 PART NAPOLEON SERIES NEXT!!!!
