I like Dan Carlin a lot.  Common Sense kicks ass.

Excellent show. Carlin ought to just dump his other show and concentrate on the history podcast, which is one of the best on the net.

I like his other show.  I see no reason to "dump it."

I like it less than Hardcore History. A simple production possibilities curve indicates an excellent reason for him to do so.  :twisted:

Hardcore History is the highlight of my 60 day cycle.  Common Sense is worth listening to.

His podcast on Churchill sounds like a fucking sermon. (To be fair, I haven't finished it yet.)

EDIT: I stopped at the point where he was talking about Churchill "turning from a ugly duck to a swan, and started to shine." There is a great Mises quote about historians injecting subjective valuations into historical narrative, but I can't find it ATM. This guy's got a major hard-on for Churchill...

Yeah, I avoid his recent history podcasts.

None that update regularly, but mises.org has probably over 100 hours of lectures dealing with history, mostly from a libertarian revisionist standpoint.

There are lots of mainstream history audiobooks and lectures, obviously.  TTC's J. Rufus Fears lecture called "History of Freedom" was pretty good.  (I can't seem to find a good torrent link anymore though, you might have to pick one of those huge "all TTC lectures, part X" torrents and uncheck the ones you don't want.)

I like the way Carlin talks, hence why I listen even though it takes half a year for a new one to come out.  I complain, but i don't contribute so take my word as far as that will go.

Personally, "Scars of the great war" was one of my favorite history shows. These punic ones are damn good too.

Yeah, you can find lots of dull, boring lectures, with speakers droning on about people and dates. What sets Carlin apart is his ability to bring the subject alive and to place you into the times and events.
