Inescapable Horror - Get Bogged Down in Dan Carlin's Blueprint for Armageddon
Dan Carlin's podcast is well named, it is indeed hard core history for hard core history fans. I don't think Dan's style is applicable to much of history. He needs the extreme, the dramatic and the ear catching for his dramatic style to work. But when he is on a subject that suits him, he is unbeatable. The build up to the first world war is just such a subject. Needless to say it goes on for a long time, and is definitely not too short. But the length makes it immersive. And compelling. You might want to get back to the reassuring reality of the day to day, but you just can't stop listening.
Not recommended for depressives, but superb for the rest of us.
