Dan Carlin's Hardcore History
In "Hardcore History" journalist and broadcaster Dan Carlin takes his "Martian", unorthodox way of thinking and applies it to the past. Was Alexander the Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilization ever fall like civilizations from past eras? This isn't academic history (and Carlin isn't a historian) but the podcast's unique blend of high drama, masterful narration and Twilight Zone-style twists has entertained millions of listeners.

The Ultimate
Nothing comes close to these history masterpieces. Occasionally, especially the Supernova series gets caught up in too much war/troop movements for me. But his older stuff still holds up.

You make me think!!
Thought provoking, provocative (in a great way) and addictive.
