“I love this podcast,” said the no-talking-podcasts-EVER person.

I am known among my friends as “the one who hates talking podcasts” - it’s been A Thing for long enough that when I told them that they had to listen to Lady Science, they were all joking that I’d been swapped with an alien. I honestly hate listening to talk shows/podcasts - but this podcast broke through that barrier. Even after going weeks without listening, I had to come back because I couldn’t stop thinking about the conversations. I definitely recommend this show.

Eye Opening Colonial History of Archaeology and Museums

Had to check out this podcast for a Humanities of the Middle East course. Informed, eye-opening, concise. Thank you for making this podcast! I’ll definitely be listening to more episodes from now on!

Amazing!

Such great content. The conversations are so engaging and the interviews are so interesting. Love the historical episodes. I’ve listened to the conversation with Ingrid Okert three or four times.
