My favourite episode of anything, ever. Listened to it about 15 times.
I've listened to every episode of Hardcore History to date, and this one has to be my favorite. I've come back to it time and time again. I've recommended this single episode to people more than anything else. It's so well researched and presented. Dan has a such a great take on this topic. If you are going to listen to anything from this show start here. It stands alone, don't let the lengthy show scare you away it's truly amazing.
Dan seems to have an amazing ability to step outside of his culture and time, and look down from a ten thousand foot perspective on the world. He's a marvelous storyteller, and is very good at telling stories from our history in a way that shows us our commonalities. Even with ancient peoples and horrible slaughters, Dan is able to show us our history is a collection of human decisions, and challenges us to feel empathy for people from times so different from our modern age. A must listen for history buffs to get the human back into their humanities.
I love Dan Carlin. This episode gives a lot of food for thoughts. We live an ongoing experiment and it will end only if/when we fail it (and most/all of us die in the process)
Truly the world class of podcasts. Dan Carlin provides a excellent host for a podcast that's packed with quality despite its quantity.
This podcast changed my life and my way of thinking, and that's coming from a wizard.
Dan in fine form. If you're a history buff, nerd or even just a dabbler, Dan's take on history, and his delivery make every episode a worthwhile listen.
