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 gold standard

This is without a doubt the gold standard of podcasts. Dan is an amazing story teller and narrator. I’ve always been a history buff myself and your stories paint such vivid pictures that no other narrator has. I get all giddy when I see a new episode posted and anxiously count down the minutes of your episode as I start listening. I just don’t want them to end! Dan, if you actually read this, thank you for the best podcast I’ve ever listened to. You’ve made history come to life and put us listeners in the shoes of those whom you speak of like no book ever has.
