Dan Carlin’s “Hardcore History”

History 2 Comments

I’ve only started listening to my first episode, but I’m 3 hours in (sic) and it’s amazing. This episode–which is 5 hours long–is ostensibly on the Cuban Missile Crisis, but so far we’re just up to the Bay of Pigs. If you’re interested in politics and history I strongly recommend it. Even if you don’t like Carlin’s commentary, he reads tons of source quotes that makes it worth your time, especially if you’re like me and have huge road trips every month.

    His 6 part series on WWI, “Blueprint for Armageddon” is just incredible.

    Make sure to check out Wrath of Khans and Ghosts of the ostfront too. Ghosts of the ostfront was an eye opener, I never realized the scale and brutality of the German/ Russian part of ww2.
