    Archive Ep | Egyptian Tattoo History

    Archive Ep | Egyptian Tattoo History

    Taking another trip in the way back when machine to bring you another archived episode! This time we're taking a look at one of my absolute favorite episodes, Egyptian Tattoo History. Not only were my flabbers absolutely gassted when researching and recording this episode but I can honestly say this is one of the most fun recording sessions I've ever had! We get upset at some archeologists, but we get happy again because other archeologists are amazing, and we learn a LOT!

    I hope you enjoyed this look into the weird, wonderful, mysterious, and a little bit rage-inducing history of Egyptian tattoos!

    Druids: Fact and Fantacy

    Druids: Fact and Fantacy

    If you're a fantasy lover like me, the mere mention of druids might conjure up images of wise, bearded wizards, powerful witches, and nature-bound warriors straight out of "Lord of the Rings" or "Game of Thrones." But who were the real druids, and how much of what we "know" is merely Roman propaganda or modern fantasy? Buckle up my delicious little doughnut, as we embark on a journey to unravel the truth behind these mysterious figures of ancient Europe.

Great Show, Always Learn Something

I first found TK from her reels on Facebook. When I learned about her podcast, I immediately subscribed. Every single episode has been both informative and entertaining (though some bring out the spicy version of me just like the topics can bring out spicy TK as well). Definitely looking forward to more seasons and wanted to tell you TK that you’re amazing and I wish we we neighbors because you seem like someone who I’d get along with really well in real life! Stay hydrated, get some rest as you prepare for the next season, and keep doing what you’re doing!

The Friendly Podcast Guide ,

History with personality

I love that I leave each episode feeling like I’m friends with Tk. Not only does she give us well researched information, she also gives it to us in a way that makes me interested in learning about it!

For the love of History!

This is digestible, enjoyable historical nuggets. Presented in a sunshiny way. I 1st came across TK on her infotainment skits, found my way to the podcast and now I’m burning through them.

The thought and research that goes into each episode is not lost on me, can’t wait til next season.

KEEP UP THE FANTASTIC WORK TK! 💚
