What sets Carlin apart is his ability to bring the subject alive and to place you into the times and events.

It's like your favorite history teacher w/o the tuition or the time sensitive attendance. 

Punic Wars 1&2 have been great cliff hangers.  I know what happened but still, I want to hear him say it.

Dan's a level-headed guy (if not "libertarianish"--his word) with a flair for entertainment.

 I think he's actually a libertarian who's scared of pissing off liberal and conservative listeners. . . I don't blame him he's got a certain (and very broad) demographic he has to deal with.

I tried to corner him with that claim after first listening to a few shows but he wouldn't bite.

It's in Cantonese.  The title roughly translates as "Why Guangdong Should Secede And Specialize in Underage Sex Tourism - With Your Host, Anonymous Russian American Jew Boy".  :lol:

I prefer Common Sense to Free Domain Radio. I can't keep up with Molyneux.

Don't worry there's nothing to keep up on - he's a culty nutjob.

Dan Carlin's Hardcore history ROCKS! He's getting a lot better at it too. He discusses all the source material and he presents it in a way that makes it come out and grab you as if you were there!

If you're getting a cookie-cutter site with a few non-working "test" links, that means the mod_rewrite on that site thinks otherwise...  Just a little security measure to keep the CCP snoops away;)

Anywhoo, back to Hardcore History...  which I'm sure will have an exciting new episode...  someday...  in 2009 probably...

After 40 days and 40 nights of suspense, comes...

  • Oct 30, 2008 - "Show 23 - Punic Nightmares III - In one of the great displays of resiliency in all history, the Romans refuse to buckle under murderous Carthaginian pressure. Instead they recover, defeat and destroy Carthage, and conquer most of the Mediterranean.


(Yes, kudos to LCPLIC3 for beating me to it.)

I think Carlin deserves an award for podcast show for the Punic production. It was amazing. His description of Roman generals weeping even as they burned Carthage to the ground was - well, it was the complete package. It was all around awesome. He really does deserve to be recognized for those 3 episodes.

Carlin would have made a great high school history teacher. Most of them just kill any interest in the subject by drilling students on dry dates and lists of politicians. Carlin puts you right there.

I had a similar professor in college. Mrs. Stein, who must have been 65 or so. She taught history from a human angle, and made you feel like she must have been there. Maybe she had been.

One story of hers stuck with me. Her father, a professor at the University of Chicago, had worked on the Manhattan Project. After much pleading, he was granted a few days off to visit home, but was sternly instructed NOT to visit his old campus. They didn't want him discussing the project with any of his old colleagues. Well, he was walking one day at home and happened to pass by the campus. He thought about going inside, but then a man stepped out from around a wall and said, "Uh, uh, Professor. No visiting the school, remember?"
