I'll have to re-listen to the first five episodes. If I'm not back in a week, call search and rescue.

His casts are good history generally but it is kind of a slog at times.

I don't understand exactly why he refuses to break the episodes down into smaller pieces - if nothing else to save my sanity from lengthy downloads if I don't have a good connection.

I liked one of the episodes where he and Mike Duncan discussed Roman history as a contrast in their styles.  Mike did low key actual history while Dan was more, well, theatrical.

His ~24hrs on WWI is amazing.

I love 'Hardcore History', and with a nice road trip coming up, I'll be catching up.

Now do a new 'Common Sense' episode, Dan.

It's very excellent.

I have my issues with some of his interpretations, but in general he tells interesting stories.

I think Dan Carlin is still suffering cognitive dissonance between believing his libertarian ideas were great, and realizing that Trumpism is the end of that journey.

My first Hardcore History was Wrath of the Khans, and it got me hooked.  I'm fine with his interpretations because I think he makes it clear when he's theorizing or using an event to make a point about his views on human nature.

It's on my device at this moment.  It's like Death Throes of the Republic IV all over again.

My father was bandaged up with a head wound, doing PT on Guam to prepare for the mainland invasion of Japan when they were interrupted by an NCO who told them the first atomic bomb had obliterated a Japanese city.

That sums up that war and those men.

I don't remember the titles offhand, but the one about the Celtic holocaust and the one with the jingoism, Spanish-American War, and especially the Philippine occupation really held my attention during a roadtrip a while back.

The audiobook for Doris Kearns-Goodwin's Team of Rivals, on the other hand... and I'm really interested in the material.  Just the listening-while-driving thing put me at risk of not doing either very well.

If anyone has any audiobooks they'd recommend that tells a good narrative around a historical event that gets in to the kind of human-level detail that I like about HH, I've got a few Audible credits I lazily built up burning a hole in my pocket.


/the Khans were my first, too

History on Fire used to be good, probably still is but he went behind a paywall that wasn't even fully international.

It's expanding, might be in your area.

Malcom Gladwell's new audio book The Bomber Mafia is very good.

Yeah, this was one of the best podcast series i've ever listened too.
I didn't know much about WW1 before that series, but I was captivated and just started reading and learning more and more.  Soooo good.
