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.

Deep themes run through this show, with allegations of Japanese war crimes and atrocities in China at the start leading to eerily familiar, almost modern questions over how the world should respond. And then Dec 7, 1941 arrives...
The Asia-Pacific War of 1937-1945 has deep roots. It also involves a Japanese society that's been called one of the most distinctive on Earth. If there were a Japanese version of Captain America, this would be his origin story.
Pain is at the root of most drama and entertainment. When does it get too real? This very disturbing and graphic show looks into some case studies and asks some deep questions. WARNING Very intense subject matter.

Julius Caesar is our travel guide as he takes us through his murderous subjugation of the native Celtic tribal peoples of ancient Gaul. It sounds vaguely like other, recent European colonial conquests...until the natives nearly win.
What happens if human beings can't handle the power of their own weaponry? This show  examines the dangerous early years of the Nuclear Age and humankind's efforts to avoid self-destruction at the hands of its own creation.

If this were a movie, the events and cameos would be too numerous and star-studded to mention. It includes Xerxes, Spartans, Immortals, Alexander the Great, scythed chariots, and several of the greatest battles in history.

From Biblical-era coup conspiracies to the horrific aftermath of ancient combat this second installment of the series on the Kings of Achaemenid Persia goes where only Dan can take it. For better or worse…
Show 56 - Kings of Kings

Show 56 - Kings of Kings

Often relegated to the role of slavish cannon fodder for Sparta's spears, the Achaemenid Persian empire had a glorious heritage. Under a single king they created the greatest empire the world had ever seen.
The Americans are coming, but will the war be over by the time they get there? Germany throws everything into a last series of stupendous attacks in the West while hoping to avoid getting burned by a fire in the East they helped fan.
Politics, diplomacy, revolution and mutiny take center stage at the start of this episode, but mud, blood, shells and tragedy drown all by the end.

i dont understand or missed something....when the germans had france in full retreat and paris was basically empty and there for the taking...why did they turn aside? what was the goal there instead of taking the prize immediately? I didnt notice any real elaboration or else i was inside my own thoughts at the time.

Brandon Bryan well maybe when they put in place the puppet government(Vichy France) they thought that flank was secure. Just a guess.

So good. I know you don't read these comments, but thank you Dan - you've awoken my love of history. I already bought the Thors Angels and Meandering Through The Cold War episodes, next I'm going for the Roman Empire series. So excited. In terms of our current civilization lacking a Herodotus type figure - have to admit that Dan is unintentionally picking up that mantel in a way. Anyway, King of Kings - It's incredible to think of the massive impact Cyrus The Great had on Western civilization and the Middle East as a whole. No Judaism, no Christianity, no Islam. The world wouldn't be recognizable. 🤯

I am a true millennial. Born in June of '88. I have no problem admitting older generations were tougher. The further back you go the closer you live to death. The closer you live to death the more bad ass, tough as God damn nails you become.

Ive seen people describe the host of this show as a GOAT. Is this an acronym, and if so what does it mean?
