This is the history podcast I’ve always come back to after trying others. Very interesting and fun to listen to and hosted by a history professor

D.B himself is an amazing story teller that is thorough enough to not hold back on the dark gritty side of history. My only issue is the topic choices have really fallen off. I’ve been a listener for years in both platforms and I used to be excited for new episodes. Bring back the war, conquests...Read full review »

This is a great pod full of great stories and info. I’m really glad it’s back from behind the paywall. And no, Daniele doesn’t have an accent, you do.

This is a Podcast done with class and I’m transported through time when I listen. I appreciate Daniele Bolellis voice and teaching style. Makes me want to learn more. Thank you!

Well done and informative! This is what HardCore History would be if Dan Carlin had a sense of humor! I can’t wait for each new episode.

I especially like the Roman/Germanic tribes stories. The stories of plains Indians have become a new favorite. Daniel does have a strong Italian accent but it is not hard to understand. He is an engaging story teller that brings you into the world as it was.

Love the story telling.

Subscribed to the podcast a while back but just finally listened to one. Started with “Give me back my legions”. My favorite time period in history. I’ve always loved history told as a story rather than reading a boring book, and Dan is an excellent story teller. Love this podcast and love the...Read full review »

Bruce Lee episode perhaps the best of all the episodes in my opinion very thorough and enjoyable episode overall. Just a plain old person like all of us who within a very short time frame that is like transformed 360° in this episode is a Journey through that time. bravo

A moral subjectivist who never misses a chance to wag his finger at Christian Europeans but glosses over the brutality of peoples like the Plains Indians and Aztecs.
NoleFan_89 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/27/22
Great storytelling, can hear the effort that is put into each episode. Fantastic job
r3mainCalm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/25/22
Been following this show since the beginning. Love the detail he gets into with each topic. Hate to unfollow it but now there are anywhere between 10 and 30 minutes of ads per episode. My time is valuable and I don’t have time to scroll through five minutes, pause and see if I missed any actual...Read full review »

Like History? With Great research? A sense of humor ? Yes to all the above for History on Fire. 100% recommend if you enjoy getting a deep dive into something that I promise you can use to have conversations about the subject later.

Daniele is a true master at his craft and does a fantastic job of making history come alive. Highly recommend this show to learn the lessons from history and use them to improve our present, and future.

Great History podcast, love learning about all the things that were never taught in my history class. Great job Daniele, can’t wait til the next episode 🙌🤌
Harland910 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/20/22
Whatever. Also, the Beast of Gevaudan episode is unlistenable. The low end is off and making my speaker shake. Luminary seems awesome. Lol
beeze20 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/19/22
Great show and so happy to see no more paywall, have a lot of catching up to do now!
Ninja pimp 55 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/18/22
With his flawless and captivating Italian accent Daniele is sharp, funny and a great storyteller. Besides the great Dan Carlin and the profound Daryl Cooper, they form what I call a History Trinity of this genre of podcasting. Well worth your time. Relax, sit back and indulge yourself!

I consider this to be one of the very best history podcasts out there. Bravo!
TildaJean via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/22
It could have been an awesome podcast, and it started out really freaking good. But Daniele cares more about money. I was a regular donor until he went to to a paid only platform that just so happened to steal from just about everyone when it started and that platform attempted to blackmail a...Read full review »

I have been listening to HOF for years and he’s on of the best history podcast on any platform!
SanAntoDawg1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/22
Subscribe to this epic podcast if you love learning about history in a way that is far from dry!!! Nobody does it quite like Daniele Bolelli (:
radiodrumhead via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/22
A really good podcast with a great host! If you’re into you’re history shows then Daniele Bolelli is up there with Dan Carlin/Hardcore History. I missed the show while it moved over to luminary. Great to have you back Mr Bolelli!
Gegzzy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/24/22
One of the best history shows out there. He has such a great, conversational, tone and is really great at telling stories. Glued to the podcast the entire time.
Fish Fan 09 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/22
You should offer something less than a $5 option. I know $5 is not much to give but when trying to spread amongst many podcast,it takes from others.
Kurt in Detroit via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/20/22
I appreciate the amount of time and effort put in to share history in a way that makes it come alive.

Glad to see your not behind the paywall. Now I can afford to listen :) Love you podcast

Happy it is back
M.Mako via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/18/22
Daniele’s passion for history and storytelling is obvious. History is made accessible and entertaining for everyone. Never miss an episode because he can make topics I haven’t been interested in previously something I want to hear more about
Schniby via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/15/22
History with an edge. The guy is a master at his craft and his kindness and sense of humor radiate in every show. The series on the war for the black hills does it to me every time
InsultingRetard via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/18/22
Superb is the word I would use to describe this podcast. Daniele is a man’s man who tells the story with a necessary and respectful degree of chivalry, while still getting the real life picture thoroughly painted. I would highly recommend this podcast. Pour yourself a glass of whatever you like...Read full review »

When you pair an endearing Italian accent, great storytelling, and the thoroughness of a college professor, you get History on Fire. This is the perfect show to listen to while waiting for your next season of The Forgotten Wars Podcast or the Revolutions Podcast. The Bruce Lee episodes are a...Read full review »

Been a fan of HOF for some years now. Got hooked with the free podcast than made the jump to subscriber. DB, you are in the league of historical champions! I’m hoping it’s something on my end but the listening will be going good than all of a sudden freeze. Have to open up the app. Press pause...Read full review »

Honestly, I loved how Daniele explained and explored topics. I found this podcast through Our Fake History, and started listening to it last summer, I was slowly making my way through his catalog, until I tried listening to an episode and all episodes now require a subscription to luminary. 10/10...Read full review »

I love this guy. Interesting delivery, dry sly humor that makes you chuckle, lots of interesting side bar tidbits. I listen to several history podcasts and none are better. Maybe one is as good. His Italian accent is fun, but occasionally a word or two is hard to understand. No matter. If a...Read full review »

One of the most detailed and in-depth biographies I’ve ever listened to.

Grouty11 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/21/21
Not at all worth paying to hear 15 mins of ads. There are much better free history podcasts

Great to hear your podcast again..!
afanofthegoodstuff1234 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/20/21
Needs subscription, bummer
Njgdtvjuff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/07/21
Daniele is very well prepared, has a wonderful sense of humor and a unique perspective. Unfortunately I am retired and on a fixed income so I won’t be able to continue to listen now that it requires a subscription. I will really miss this.
xxzyxxz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/21
Podcast is great. I like ecstasy of gold. Half these people probably don’t even know what I am talking about. I found this guy listening to dan Carlin. I found him to be on the same intellectual level as dan about history. I could listen to them go back and forth for hours. I think I might even...Read full review »
