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.

Awesome, just awesome!

I never thought that I would enjoy listening to history stuff as mush as when listening Hardcore History. Still trying to find other history podcasts that can come close to this one! Thanks! :)

A brilliant, brilliant (hi)story teller

Dan Carlin relates key moments in history from exiting, interesting, relevant and surprising angles. Highly addictive and thought provoking.
