Q and A Number 3
Once upon a time in the dark ages of podcasting, two friends set out on a quest to bring the stories of historical women to your ears. In this episode, we have some speculative history, a few predictions about the future, and a peek behind the curtain in this, our tenth year! Thanks for listening!
Empress Sisi of Austria Part 2
In part 2 of our coverage, Empress Sisi helps to change the political climate in Hungary, experiences great personal tragedy, comes a little bit loose at the seams... and gained headlines with an ending that shook the world.
Empress Sisi of Austria Part 1
Sisi was a shy young noblewoman who was plucked from obscurity and shoved onto the world stage, with very little warning, where she found the limelight a difficult place in which to live, but her beauty and genuine concern for the common people earned her the status of a reluctant icon.
Marie Curie, Double Episode Revisit
If Amazon Prime's movie Radioactive has you curious about Marie's REAL story, we joined our two episodes of her, broke them into chapters, and created this one mega-Marie deep dive into her life.
I love it!
I have listened to this podcast since I discovered it a couple of years ago. I have learned so much! They do such a good jobb telling the story, they are funny, analytical and critical. I appreaciate how careful they are with the sources and all the resources they made available for us to learn more. They have covered most of my idols which has been an absolute delight and I have discovered a lot of new ones! The sound is not perfect all the time, but I think is quite cozy, so I don’t mind!
Adore this pod!!! Never knew I could love history. Just a little sad I can’t hear the voice of one of the narrators very well in the episode of Beatriz potter :<anyway: lots of love and creds to u guys
This podcast is one of favourites! Informative, interesting and funny, as well as a feminist approach to herstory. Love it!
