Is he done with Supernova of the East?
duncan, not carlin
I'll likely listen to the Russian Revolution. I stopped at the South American countries. Did not interest me at all.
Ive loved these South American revolutions. Learned a lot about them, because they're not really taught in school. From what I remember the text books basically just covered Pancho VIlla as a bad guy who stirred up trouble in the American South, without any context of the Mexican Revolution. Or very little of it
That’s the same education on him that I had as well. I knew the names Pancho Villa for the Mexican Revolution and Bolivar for Venezuela/Columbia but didn’t appreciate the history there. And I would recommend listening to the South American episodes again. Gregor MacGregor and Bernardo O’Higgins are two amazing historical figures (and names) that I wouldn’t know otherwise.
Bolivar crossing the Andes is fascinating to me.
Just saw on my podcast app that Dan Carlin is a guest on History on Fire. Havent listened yet, obviously. Just a heads up for those interested, and can tolerate the heavy Italian accent of the host.
Don't know him. Do you like him as much as Carlin?
History of Rome
i like him a lot as well but its very very different, he is much more factual and dry. It does mean he goes through stuff in about 10 times the pace of carlin
Can't do Bolelli's podcast but I like those 2 together.
1/4 into it. Great topic that needs to be discussed!
Yeah - I listened to it earlier. Really good.
Finished it up on the drive to OKC. It's always incredible how much I don't about a topic I thought I had mastery of like pearl harbour/WW2. Downloaded a couple of his source books from audible.
Maybe this is why Carlin has been so slow to push content out the last year or so
Well hot damn
That is something I will be viewing
What’s this about?
ancient armies vs more modern armies
Could militaries separated by ten centuries compete on a battlefield? In this alternative history experiment two armies that successfully invaded Britain a millennium apart are matched. Which side would you bet on?
Since this is a the defacto history pod thread -
History Unplugged is always a good listen, but today he had on a 95 year old Tuskegee veteran. Great interview and really interesting
Most impressive the dude is 95 years old and still sharp.
My new job has me on the road a ton, so yeah please keep listing all the history pods
Besides the Hardcore History, Revolutions, History of Rome of the topic -
History Author Show
How it Began, History of the Modern World
Tides of History

Our Fake History
I enjoy the BBC's "In Our Time". Really dry but each episode is ~one hour and they have almost 1,000 episodes, so a ton of content.
Thanks. I'll check this out.
Does anybody else listen to Backstory? It's several history professors who look at themes and individual events from American history. I love it, and it's really well produced. https://www.backstoryradio.org/
In Our Time is excellent. There are 4 or 5 subcategories all the episodes fall under. History is one, there’s also science, philosophy, and a few others.
Our Fake History is very very good. Like a lot of podcasts, started as a hobby, but it's researched very well.
I started listening to the latest one about Blackbeard. Im going to like this pod. Thanks for the rec duc15
I’m a newer listener but the Stalin episodes got me hooked
History-ish... "Omnibus" with Ken Jennings and John Roderick is fantastic. It's more on the esoteric/trivial side of history, but it's very fun.
I like to count how many times Melvyn Interrupts his guests.
