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.

Nothing compares!

The absolutely best podcast I have ever listened to. Every show is about as amazing as it gets and basically an audiobook in and of itself. You can listen to every show several times, as I have done, and still find it fascinating. Dan’s grandiose combination of giving multiple viewpoints on everything, fantastically deep research on the topic and sheer force of voice make it unique.
I have never written a review for nor recommended a podcast to anyone - except this one.
Keep it going Dan!!!
