Excellent but undoubtedly right of centre (traditionally)This is a wonderful podcast in so many contextual ways. Despite the credible work of Carlin, there are occasions where reactive (perhaps overtly imperialist) motives/ventures are explained away as ’well-meaning’ mistakes by the establishment (Vietnam has a hint of this). If you are from a social science background, the conflation of marxism with historically practised communism may have you rolling your eyes. As with all of us, Carlin’s world view/experiences often shapes his conclusions..Score: 3/5

Dan Carlin - accessing purchased archive materialI am fascinated and engrossed with this magnificent show. It is of course worthy of all the plaudits received BUT I have purchased around 55 archive episodes and I find it clumsy and frustrating to access them within ‘My account’. The principal annoyance is that the download seems to revert to the beginning each time it is accesed, necessitating a blind scroll until a start point is reached. I must have heard the words ‘December 1941’ five hundred times.... Fantastic delivery, forensic, balanced treatment but surely DC can do better with the access to paid-for content?

However, the topics he chooses are always interesting, varied, and he makes a deep dive into the topic.

The best way of telling historyDan really puts the human element, the emotion and detail into the events he goes through. You won’t find this level of detail on history other than in the books he looks into for references. Dan puts a tremendous amount of thought and effort behind his shows and he touches on the human extremes as much as he can, which is probably the most interesting part of being human. He doesn’t use a typical approach to telling history, which is what I think is fantastic, he is balanced in his argument and gives credit to people where credit is due. As an Aussie, it was wonderful hearing Dan mention us in blue print for Armageddon, personally it meant a lot as often we don’t get a gig in the big historic events (which is fair enough because we’ve got a tiny population). Cheers Dan, keep it up! Loving your shows!.Score: 5/5

Truly clever, insightful and enthrallingWonderfully researched and conveyed with enthusiasm and passion, this is history as it should be heard. Totally captivating. Not only does Dan spend long enough on each episode to really look in depth at his topic but also relates history in a way that is so human we can’t help but see the parallels with our modern society and what was faced by humans in years gone by. There is an honesty to Dan’s work that makes it simply a joy to listen to without feeling you are being preached to or being manipulated into believing one interpretation of history or another..Score: 5/5

Dan Carlin is an incredible tour guide through historyThough, I don’t know why he would take off ‘Blueprint For Armageddon’ - his six part series on WWI. I hope it comes back, especially during the days of Covid-19. I would love to listen to it again.Score: 5/5

It will draw you in…Don’t worry about the length of each ep or series. Dan’s conversational style, like a long yarn around a fire with old friends gradually immerses you in to the epic stories of great human events that have framed human civilisation. It is not dry narration of events, instead it try’s to bring a sense of the thoughts and experiences of individuals, great and small, who were there at the time. He clearly researches across the entire canon of available material and credits it all. Incredibly, he manages to divert into the minutiae of individuals stories and surrounding context without losing the thread of the larger picture and the timeline he is navigating to inform us. You never end up wondering “where are we” or “how does this matter?” The strings of thought come together and we are clear where we are in the unfolding saga. This is truely the art of story telling. It’s sort of like Jazz music but with words. I do long drives across my Australian landscape. They are on highways that are relatively boring and endless. Listening to Dan’s work soaks up the hours and I learn a great deal about events but also the context and personalities involved . In the end it is enormously satisfying. A real pleasure. Drive in… it will capture your imagination. Seriously recommended. M.Score: 5/5

Dan Carlin's Hardcore History Podcast Episodes

Show 67 - Supernova in the East VI

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.

Show 66 - Supernova in the East V

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.

Show 65 - Supernova in the East IV

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.

Show 64 - Supernova in the East III

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.

Show 63 - Supernova in the East II

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...

Show 62 - Supernova in the East I

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.

Show 61 - (Blitz) Painfotainment

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.

Show 60 - The Celtic Holocaust

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.

Show 59 - (Blitz) The Destroyer of Worlds

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.
