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.

    The Atlantic Slave Trade mixes centuries of human bondage with violence, economics, commerce, geo-political competition, liberty, morality, injustice, revolution, tragedy and bloody reckonings. That sounds like a lot, yet this show merely scratches the surface of this enormous subject.

4.9 Stars from a few thousand ratings speak for themselves

Can’t complain about anything serious

Even at 5.0 stars this podcast is underrated.

See all these people claiming hardcore history to be the best podcast in existence? Theyre all right. HH is insanely, uniquely, ridiculously, perhaps even illegally, good. There are no words. Are you not into history? Listen to one episode and you will be. Are you already into history? This podcast gives you everything you mightve accused other secondary sources for not providing you with. If youre on the fence about this podcast get off the fence and listen to it. All the hype is real. Podcast apps should add a sixth star to the rating system reserved exclusively for HH.
