Creator and host of the award-winning podcast, Hardcore History
2020 Speaker • CU Alumnus

Whether he's discussing history or current events, veteran journalist Dan Carlin brings his own unconventional approach to the subject matter. His Generation X, non-partisan, "neo-prudentist" outlook provides a fresh look at the headlines in the newspapers and the stories in the history books.

His two podcasts, "Hardcore History" and "Common Sense" are two of the leading independent podcasts in their respective genres. Both productions feature Carlins's unique, contradictory broadcast style. Passionate without being aggressive, loud but smart, and trademark fast, staccato vocal delivery that has been compared to William Shatner after too many espressos.
