FABULOUS IDEA

Get women who have made their own mark to talk about the women who made an impression on them:love it and applaud Rebecca for continuing with this project. I've learned a bit about a lot of women I knew very little about. Downstarred (is that a word?) it because I sometimes have a hard time adjusting to the guests audio.

So-so

The storytelling is very factual like a history lecture and I’m sorry but the theme song is suuuuper cheesy. I appreciated the information, though.

Poor quality

The audio quality of the show is so poor that the content is unlistenable. Content sounds great, wish I could hear the presenter.
