The hosts blew it

Was very interested in the topics, but could not listen to the hosts.

Inspiring

I love how this show uses comedy to make it as entertaining as it is. I think it is important to give these women the recognition they deserve.

I go to an all girls school where empowering young girls is a priority yet this is the first time I have ever heard of these women. This goes to show that even in such a place where you would expect to learn about the women who made history, we benefit from listening to your podcast. Thank you❤️

Bummed

I wanted to like this so much but the two hosts just didn’t do it for me. I had to turn it off five minutes in. I know they wanted it to be fun and informative but the cackling and jokes were annoying to me.
