Description

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.

great podcast but the Maxim gun isn't even close to a Gatling gun. it's the one thing that stands out and bothers me about this podcast.

The majority of the time spent listening to this I've been perched on the edge of my seat, chewing my fingernails down to bloody nubs. Abundantly entertaining historical narrative, chock full of information. Easily one of my favorite podcasts.

there used to be this excellent show called "Hardcore History". It would come out once every three months or so and I would sqweel with delight. then it would only come out every six months still I welcomed it like the friend that you only see at weddings. these days I have to wait for an election for a new episode. this is, as the kids say, "not fetch".

of course, if anyone ever took rome, the Romans themselves would have been genocides. Since the Romans had their civilization come so close to total annihilation early in their history, they became so militarized. That's why the Roman republic always fought total war.
