Intriguing 🤔

I love Krystal’s pods! She knows how to draw her guests out to get them conversing about their creativity. She asks all the right questions and is a great listener. I especially like her conversations with Claudine Hemingway. Claudine definitely knows her French history! Thank you, Krystal for sharing your creativity with us. I appreciate you!

Inspiring and Educational

Krystal is a fantastic and engaging host! She always brings on wonderful guests with inspiring stories and you can tell just how much the pair are enjoying themselves throughout. It also inspires me in my own creative endeavors.

Being a history nerd, History Avec a Hemingway always brings me so much joy! Claudine is a wonderful educator and full of such incredible knowledge. As well as covering well-known historical figures, she shines a light on people throughout history that are some of the most amazing stories I’ve heard and should’ve gotten much more recognition for their work.

I could not recommend this podcast enough, it always brings light to my day!
