Sorry, thats what I meant.
Is he good enough to listen to for four hours? You say he has a good presentation style.
He more recent podcasts are free although he asks for a $1 an episode donation. He is doing a series on the war in the Pacific starting with the Japanese attack on China. Listen to one of those and see if you like his style.
Heck, ya!! It's the only podcast I have ever listened to. I don't need any others.
I spent over a month on my 1-1/2 three times a week listening to his "Blueprint for Armageddon" podcasts this Spring. About 20 hours total. I think it's his best. Also loved the Fall of the Roman Republic. We did that one hers ago on our road rips to or out of state property. Got my youngest hooked on history.
I was just starting his podcasts on Genghis Khan when went to working from home. Hope to get back in the classroom soon so I can pick that one up again.
All his stuff is brilliant. Cfan is referring to Supernova in the East. The great length of his work is like savoring a ten course banquet. All of his stuff is good. Hard to pick out but Id say my favorites are Death Throes of the Republic, which is about Rome, and King of Kings, which is about the ancient Persian empire. Most of his stuff is free
He is good enough to listen to for hours. He is a bit morbid, but his delivery is empathetic and engaging. He does focus on the big personalities of history but also provide some good insight into the lives of ordinary people who were their contemporaries. I suggest you listen to some of the free content before you buy. For a single episode topic I’d suggest his “The Celtic Holocaust”. It is free.
A bit of a warning though. Carlin is mostly a moderate libertarian and is sympathetic to upheavals that deliver liberty to individuals at the expense of centralized power. Unfortunately, he cannot see that element in our President, even though he grudgingly admits the President is just the kind of person he would prescribe to re-launch the enlightenment movement. My guess is that he sees too much Caesar or Napoleon in Mr. Trump. Thus he comes off as a Never Trumper.
