Show Idea

I love the podcast. I recently saw the series, “Turn”. Can you please do a show on Margaret “Peggy” Shipman Arnold. I find her very interesting and I’d like to know more about her.

Such Important Work!

It is powerful to have these two ladies bring us a side of history that has been sadly overlooked. My husband is a huge history buff and I have grown to love using podcasts as a way to “catch up” and add to the conversation. Finding this gem has added so much depth to our discussions and understanding of the way our global society has developed. I tell all my knowledge thirsty friend to check it out!! Thank you so much for all your hard work ladies! What an inspiration ❤️

These Ladies Keep Me Company Driving and Make Me Laugh

This podcast is so wonderful. I listen while driving to and from my office, and I am so enthralled that I hardly feel the pain of my commute. They have a great camaraderie with one another, and it feels like you are listening to a couple of your sisters whom you adore. Because they are so interesting, I remember so many facts large and small and am able to bring them up in conversations with friends. I find this podcast extremely rewarding!
