    Wonder Woman Part 2

    Wonder Woman Part 2

    After her creator died, Wonder Woman strayed quite a bit from where she began. She had her wings clipped by the censors in the 1950s, and lost her powers entirely in the 1960s. It took Gloria Steinem, Ms. Magazine, and the 1970s to bring Wonder Woman back to her feminist roots.

FAVORITE PODCAST

I started listening to this podcast about 1 1/2 years ago & I am so thankful I have. I’ve recommended it to everyone I know! I’m not usually a podcast or audiobook person, so take my word for it when I say that this one is worth your time.

I’d love to recommend Lee Miller as a subject. I just read The Paris Orphan, a novel inspired by her work and it was magnificent!!

My favorite history podcast!

This show does an amazing job of delivering a depth of historical information about a great variety of women throughout time while keeping me engaged the entire time! I listen to it while running, driving, or during mindless busy work. Thank you!

The history of people by my favorite duo

These 2 women consistently change my life by bringing me the most beautiful rendition of the history of people. I think I already wrote a 5 star review but every story I listen to immerses me once again into an incredible woman’s life in a different time and place in a way that makes me, for an hour, lose my myself and walk through the life and times of a hero. By the end I’m in awe every time.

Thank you for teaching me the history of our world through these women’s eyes and the eyes of the world around them. I find myself telling my family, my friends, my patients, my colleagues.

You are both incredible women too for doing this podcast for us and upholding a lot of tremendously important history that would be forgotten to many of us. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your service and I absolutely love listening to you.
