Just like the name suggests Carlin approaches historical narratives in a way that is incredibly foreign to most history teachers.
But it’s just the type of podcast the majority of history lovers can’t wait to get a hold of.
Carlin approaches major topics through world history. He also likes to analyze the most dramatic events in history.
Carlin is bound to tell you things regarding these events that were left out of your high school history lesson.
New episodes come out every four to seven months. Hardcore history boasts millions of downloads per episode and has received multiple awards and nominations.
