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.

Excellent

Dan has a gift. As you listen to his voice, his words transform you to another time. No longer will a boring history lesson send you into a coma. Dan’s episodes (especially on WW1) are like page-turner that you can’t put down. You listen to each episode numerous times. Each time you learn something new. 10/10. The best history podcast ever.

Truly moving, brilliantly structured.

I am a massive fan of all things historical, and in all fairness I believed that I’d heard it all, but Dan has created a magnum opus in terms of detail, feeling and description in all aspects that he has covered.

All should listen, all should learn.

Excellent work Dan.
