Completely and totally hooked.

I love this podcast. It is very American (I’m English), which means I have often not heard of many of the Ladies they cover (but are probably household names across the pond). But I really value the introduction I’m getting into the lives of these truly amazing women.
Then there are the ones I learnt about in school, only it turns out we were only given the bare bones beautified versions of history ..hello Florence Nightingale the epidemiologist.
I think one of my favourite things is these very entertaining podcasters quote their sources, so you can verify for yourself (I’m a scientist who also loves history), though I love the banter between the ladies too.
Oh and Beckett referenced Terry Pratchett, which finally pushed me over the edge to review despite only being partway through the back catalogue.
I’ve also sent favourite episodes to friends and family.
Thank you Susan & Beckett!

So glad I found this podcast!

Recently stumbled across this podcast and I’m so glad I did. I’ve already binged an obscene amount of past episodes. The subjects are so well researched - even with women I thought I knew a lot about, I still learned something new! A must listen!

Absolutely adore this podcast. Presented in such a conversational way. A joy to listen too. I have learnt so much from listening to this and love discovering new women I haven’t heard of. A must listen!
