This is my absolute favorite podcast! I can’t wait for each new episode to come out. Beckett and Susan do such an amazing job of painting a picture of each person they research. Not only is it interesting but funny at times as well. Looking forward to the next episode!

I am now obsessed with podcasts.

So so thankful I stumbled upon this podcast. I hadn’t previously been a consumer of podcasts and I am hooked now.
This podcast is entertaining, informative and fascinating.
I love learning about women of history and the wide variety of subjects covered. I wish that they were able to post more often as I so look forward to each episode.
Thanks for the amazing content!
