    Typhoid Mary Mallon

    Typhoid Mary Mallon

    There are quite a few parallels between Mary's Mallon's story during a series of typhoid outbreaks and our present day pandemic, and so there are things we can learn from it (not the least of which is wash your dang hands!) But was Mary a villain? Or simply a victim of circumstances?

    Annie Turnbo Malone and Madam CJ Walker

History chicks

Omg now that I’m walking 500 miles a day I’m soooo happy to have found these podcasts! I’m a total girly history buff and these episodes are great! Thank you for the entertainment!!

Shutupsoccerpasta ,

some issues - but good

one of the hosts is christian and the other is not! i don’t think the non religious host is very respectful to the christian host. (im not religious myself btw)

also one woman has a GREAT mic and the other is bad quality.

also if you’re revisiting a person for an episode - maybe you could add a little to it? otherwise it’s not a revisit just a reupload.

please feature more women of color! :)

otherwise - i enjoy the podcast from time to time. one of my fav history podcasts because the hosts and ALWAYS enthusiastic

Hhhhhhhhffffffddddd ,

Women’s history highlighted well

Amazing and informative! Subtle girl power fun!
