Is anyone into Hardcore History?
« on: December 07, 2015, 04:04:47 pm »
This podcast is fvcking amazing. It's like a much more detailed college history lecture on various topics. There's something like 100 of them right now and going strong. Most cost around 2 dollars to download but theres about 10 free on the homepage for the podcast. This guy knows his shit.

I would suggest starting off with "The American Peril" which is all about the Spanish-American War and T.R, and then diving into the "Blueprint for Armageddon" series which is all about WWI. The in-depth discussion on Verdun is definitely something that is not taught in any kind of school.

Wrath of Khans series is pwn too. I think alot of people would be really interested in it.

His Genghis Khan episodes were pwn. A great listen if you have a long road trip or commute a long distance to work because they are pretty lengthy.
