The podcast is a true companion piece

I've been a fan of Frank Turner's for over a decade now. Whenever he announces a new project, I always get excited. When I found out there will be a podcast that goes in depth about each woman and their life for whom a song was written about, I thought this was a brilliant idea. I make it a priority to listen to each episode before I listen to the song. It truly enrichens the whole experience and makes you appreciate what Frank is doing all the more. I truly can't recommend this podcast enough.

A meaningful podcast

Frank is an extraordinary songwriter when he uses his own life experiences and has drawn upon that foundation to write about important women and their places in a forgotten history. His take on these women is meaningful and the exploration he takes in this podcast to further his knowledge is memorable. Thank you Frank for this work and restoring these women to their rightful places in history.

Amazing

Please tell me how one person can be both so incredibly smart and so incredibly talented?!? To the sweet young girl behind me at Folk at the Oak that told me about this podcast, I can’t thank you enough. I hope all your dreams come true.
