Mike Duncan was another podcast where he talked about how he expected to still do at least the Mexican Revolution, Russian Revolution, Cuban Revolution, and perhaps Iranian
Russian one will take him a year
He's been making the rounds on other podcasts to promote his book that comes out next week.
Im getting kind of bored w the current 1840s revolution. Looking forward to the next one
He hasn't done a Common Sense in forever. I'm guessing he's just thrown his hands up and is like "fuck everything right now."
at the start of this thing he basically said as much
New Hardcore History just dropped
Part 1 in a series on the Pacific theater during WWII
I have a 4 1/2 hour drive Tuesday afternoon. Absolute perfection.
I took a class in college on the pacific theater that I loved.
New Addendum episode was just released.
Oh man... It's about the USS Indianapolis.
Revolutions or hardcore history? I don’t see a new HH in my podcasts.
I played it from his twitter link
Ah. It’s a different podcast you have to subscribe to apparently.
Same. I played it straight off of his tweet.
Good lord that would be terrifying.
I hope he keeps doing these things. Seems like he could put out one of these "worst places in the world" episodes once a month.
New addendum out. On Vietnam.
Where do I find this?
iTunes - Hardcore history Addendum
His twitter account
how long between pacific episodes?
Jesus how terrified would you be if after killing someone, you actually enjoyed it? I don't think that's something you can ever really know until it's happened.
I think that also brings up a discussion about religion and morality, since there are soldiers who do enjoy killing but know that they shouldn't. Does that sort of moral conundrum happen in mongol or saxon or other pre-monotheistic societies?
Did you see the Ken Burns Doc? Seemed to be a recurring theme with the soldiers there, enjoying killing and getting good at it. He did such a great job getting the interviewees to talk honestly. Like the one dude that admitting trading food for a fuck.
4 hours. Goodness.
May need to give part 1 a relisten
Think I’m going to do the same. Been so long I don’t remember a lot of it.
It’s definitely worth a relisten—the material in Part 1 was a lot denser than some of the recent topics (King of Kings, Celtic Holocaust). I replayed it around Xmas when Dan teased Part 2 as a possible Xmas gift, and I think I’m going to give it one more go before I dive into Part 2.
Yeah it was great from what I remember. Gonna start part one and then go straight into part 2 starting tomorrow
Didn't care for part 1, still excited about part 2 because....Dan.
The lady has a late shift tonight and all my exercise and yard stuff is done. As soon as she steps one foot out the door I’m migrating to the couch on our back patio with a cooler full of beer and my portable speaker.
In what wonderful place do you live to be able to do that?
Have a 6 hour drive tomorrow. Fully torqued.
Hoo boy the last hour and a half was incredible. As good as Dan has ever done. Part 3 is so primed to be a masterpiece.
Duncan said he's doing the Russian Revolution next.
By far the best class I took in college dealt with the revolution and the following years building the Soviet government
I totally forgot about this. Got a long drive Wednesday. Me and Dan going road tripping.
Part 2 was good but I don't think it's even close to his best stuff. I'm a bit nervous he's peaked. Having said that he's still my favorite podcast by far.
Think he may get close to the number of episodes for the French Revolution depending on where he stops.
Is he starting an mma revolution?
Damn, you beat my edit. Too many Sunday beers and I can't keep track of what thread I'm in smh
I'm working my way through the French Revolution episodes of Duncan's podcast. I started listening to Revolutions after about 50 episodes of History of Rome. I can definitely tell he's gotten more comfortable/confident
Yeah. History of Rome he was super dry. He still is but there’s a bit more personality coming out now.
For those that may have missed it (or haven’t gotten to the episode ) He moves to Paris to do research for his next book about Layafette. Should be amazing.
Storm before the Storm was good but basically just a retelling of info in the podcast. I think Lafayette will be really good.
The occasional injection of personality helps a lot, since he's just reading from a transcript.
