The Atlantic Slave Trade mixes centuries of human bondage with violence, economics, commerce, geo-political competition, liberty, morality, injustice, revolution, tragedy and bloody reckonings. That sounds like a lot, yet this show merely scratches the surface of this enormous subject.
When do spirit, tenacity, resilience and bravery cross into madness? When cities are incinerated? When suicide attacks become the norm? When atomic weapons are used? Japan's leaders test the limits of national endurance in the war's last year.
Can suicidal bravery and fanatical determination make up for material, industrial and numerical insufficiency? As the Asia-Pacific conflict turns against the Japanese these questions are put to the test. The results are nightmarish.
Coral Sea, Midway and Guadalcanal are three of the most famous battles of the Second World War. Together they will shift the momentum in the Pacific theater and usher in the era of modern naval and amphibious warfare.
Japan's rising sun goes supernova and engulfs a huge area of Asia and the Pacific. A war without mercy begins to develop infusing the whole conflict with a savage vibe.
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…

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.

I normally love these. but 10 minutes into this one and Dan is pushing the "Christopher Columbus was a bad man" leftist narrative. I know he leans left, but he's normally much better at reading middle. I'm out for this one.

My boyfriend just listened to this episode. His commentary has ruined my viewing experience of the new season of Bridgerton.

ah yes the only slave trade that ever happened in the history of mankind. but let's not give credits to the culture that finally ended slavery in their own countries as well as in most of the rest of the world (where it did not exist, of course...)

Great episode, too bad the reactionaries and racists will have heart attacks about anyone pointing out the facts of how BRUTAL SLAVERY WAS.

I mean, did you make a point anywhere, Dan? Anywhere at all? This is undergrad level history here: regurgitation, regurgitation, regurgitation. every american has heard all of this a thousand times a week for the last 25 years. bring something new to the conversation like an actual analysis of why Haiti is such a shithole. why the DR is such a shithole? even though both of these failed states are, literally, physically located in paradise.

Ever since discovering HH, a new episode has felt like a new epic movie release that is actually worth the hype.

Just finished it, and I loved it. I know we only get two episodes a year, but that is worth the wait.
