Great women’s history

As a fellow podcaster and a women’s historian, I find this podcast incredibly compelling and engaging. The guests brought onto the show are superb and they tell a really powerful history.

Fantastic podcast

I have found this podcast fascinating. Even episodes where I think I’m not particularly interested in the topic of the episode, they manage to make it interesting and I find myself wanting to know more. The host does an excellent job too.
