In which I direct you elsewhere

5 Jan

I have nothing to say today. So I will direct you towards Dan Carlin, who has a lot to say.

He’s the host of Hardcore History, an outstanding history podcast I was introduced to by one of my Minnesota friends. Unlike most podcasts, his episodes only come out once every few months and are 3-4 hours long.

For beginners, I would recommend Prophets of Doom, a 4.5 hour long story of some crazed Protestant preachers who basically took over a German town around the time of the Protestant revolution. It’s super fascinating and will get you hooked enough to listen to a 15 hour series about the Mongols.
