Dan Carlin is the king of storytelling. His podcast, Hardcore History, dives deep into many topics across many years in the history of human existence. Most of the time his episodes cover military-based events. He even released a book recently called The End is Always Near: Apocalyptic Moments, from the Bronze Age Collapse to Nuclear Near Misses. This is 2nd half of the interview with Dan, where we take a little Hardcore History and mash it together with some gridiron knowledge nuggets, to pop out something I’m calling Hardcore Football. If you haven’t listened to the first episode (Episode 100) then I recommend you head there first.
