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 most engrossing and accessible history cast out there. His enthusiasm for the subject is infectious. The only fault is the huge gaps between episodes.

This is one of the best shows! A podcast that has taken complete advantage of its format and turned it into one of the most entertaining and informative things out there. Dan Carlin’s writing and delivery leaves you engrossed in the subject matter. After a 4 hour long episode, you’ll go straight on to the next 4 hour long episode, until you run out ... then you’ll go on the Addendum waiting with the rest of us for the next big show to hit.
