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.

Best storytelling under the sun

I have listens to almost every episode multiple times. The storytelling from sources and the painting of the bigger picture are snowbell balanced that it is really a joy to listen too. I have yet to find an episode wich left me bored. Many thanks to Dan and his amazing team.

As good as promised and better

I procrastinated way too long on this. For some reason the idea to listen to 5 hour podcasts about long forgotten things put me off. Oh boy was I wrong... Exciting, addictive and with the benefit of getting away with no regrets and a far better understanding of the world and possibly even one self.
