LOVE this - extremely well done!

First of all, the focus of the podcast may be on LGBT figures, but it's definitely not just for members of the LGBTQI community. My entire family is hooked. The untold stories Frank highlights are universally fascinating! If only my teachers made history lessons this intriguing in school, I may have taken a different career path...

It was sheer happenstance that I discovered this podcast in the first place, but I'm so glad I did. It's my new addiction. Totally binge-worthy (an expression I hate for its overuse, but in this case, it's apt). The subject matter is timely, the stories are endlessly compelling, and the delivery is terrific.

I love the podcast exactly the way it is, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't wish that the episodes were a bit longer because I find myself ALWAYS wanting more. Alternatively, I'd love a bibliography or links to more resources in the show notes, so that I can satisfy my desire for more on my own.

Finally, a brief word about the host's voice: INTOXICATING. Confident but not aggressive. Relaxing but not sleep-inducing. Professional yet casual. I'd listen to him read the phonebook if he had such a podcast. If he'd do the outgoing greeting for my voicemail, I think my life would be complete.

Now get to work on that phonebook podcast, please.

Great podcast

I'd been following the Facebook Gay of the Day postings for a while when I saw it was becoming a podcast. I already knew Frank Howard was a dedicated researcher and fine writer. Was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the podcast as well.
His podcasts are very well crafted and entertains as well as informs.
His delivery is quiet, measured and delivers the story in an engrossing fashion. I look forward to each installment.

Fun and informative

I could listen to this podcast all day. In fact I have. Once I found it I listened non stop till I had heard them all. I love learning about influential queer people through history. Not only people I’ve never heard of before but also people who we all know of but society has erased their queerness. Knowing that we’ve always been here, and in prominent positions has brought joy to my life. This is one of my favorite podcasts.
