America's best history teacher doesn't work in a school - and he's joining us today on the All American Legacy Podcast! Dan Carlin, host of the most popular history podcast in the country: Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, is a man of deep intellect, passionate opinion, and a remarkable grasp of global history.  He's engaging, inquisitive, sharp and never boring.   We suspected he would make for a riveting interview about the history of the All American Division and we were right.

Dan's also the host of Commons Sense with Dan Carlin and is an iconic voice in American politics and history.  Over the last ten years, Dan has built a podcasting empire out of his ability to breathe life into the events that shaped the modern world.

Dan doesn't present history so much as he does history.  He focuses not on what happened but on why it happened and how it was experienced.  His storytelling style allows the listener to feel epochal events. Dan called into the All American studio on Fort Bragg to talk about World War I, World War II, the Cold War, and much more.  His intensity and unorthodox way of presenting events were immediately clear.

Dan and host Lt. Col. Joe Buccino, unit historian for the 82nd Airborne Division, spoke about a wide-range of topics ranging from the events surrounding the 82nd's rebirth as an airborne division, how World War I led to the Cold War, and the nature of history itself.  

This show is produced by the 82nd Airborne Division Public Affairs Office and hosted by Master Sgt. Dan Bailey, Lt. Col. Joe Buccino, and Staff Sgt. Will Reinier.
