yeah, discover most things on reddit these days

 

finished the series on the Khans back when I was still making long distance journeys, but been slacking ever since - your post reminded me of what I've been missing!

 

need to catchup/get started on quite a few podcasts - radiolab, serial, invisibilia and HH, to name a few

Well you and Zizouz like it, so you're probably right.

I imagine he's in the same category as Joe Rogan and other such cult heroes for MMA fans and white dudes. (aka faggots).

an Carlin...hoo boy. Okay. I'm really of two minds about him. When reading this, remember one thing first and foremost.

  • Dan Carlin is NOT a historian. He's an entertainer who uses history as a medium (Very effectively, too!). His podcasts are great because he's so enthusiastic about his subject matter - and he's really good with delivery too, for that matter. However, remember what he says - he's not a historian, he's a fan of history.

Great, now we got that cleared up! Let's move on to ups and downs :D

Upsides!

  • He's REALLY good at what he does. I listen to his podcasts as well, and they're very well done, informative, and they get the listener hooked.

  • He's got a good voice for it.

  • He makes the argument for history being far more interesting than dry lectures in high school/college/uni.

  • He DOES research his stuff before he does his podcast.

Downsides

  • He uses the "fan of history" bit almost as an excuse or cover for many of his theories ("Remember, I'm not a historian. I'm just a fan of history. But this is how this happened and this is what it seems like....").

  • While he does his research, not everything he says is spot on (Looking at YOU, oversimplification of the Roman Republic).

  • People start using him as a source - while he's good, he's essentially pop history (similar to LindyBeige on Youtube)

 

The downsides prove I was correct in my thoughts, and show precisely why I don't listen.

 

I'll stick to the likes of academically rigorous historians, thanks.

For someone who's already decided not to listen, you sure care a lot.

 

Like I said - don't listen to it.

Prove what exactly?

I posted that on the forum openly, no need to lie on here.

Yet you're forever seeking acceptance, definitely missed that manly pat on the head as a child.

Yeah you've said that before and it fell flat on its face then, as it will now.

 

You're telling a guy who knows he's a c*nt that he's a c*nt...DUH?

 

I'm also the same type of c*nt that would have you with your tail between your legs IRL if you ever talked the same kind of smack to me on the streets. I'm also insanely intelligent and good looking.

 

I AM JUST ONE OF THEM CUNTS THAT PEOPLE HATE BUT CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT

An intelligent person would know they're intelligent and not need to prove it on a forum with a bunch of faceless people.

For that reason I don't think you're a c*nt.

Just a sad individual.

But you and your cosigner buddies (who are lurking) do this all of the time...so what does that make all of you?

 

I'm no sadder than any of the other cunts on this godforsaken forum.

 

Except you're all a bunch of jobless (or dead end job) losers

Point to me where I've done this?

You're the only one on here that couldn't back their own claims.

Yet everyone else is a 'jobless bum'.

Like I said, you're a sad individual.
