Empowering for girls and women!

This podcast has been so motivating and powerful to listen to with my daughter. We love hearing the heroic stories of women we never knew existed. Great storytelling and fun to listen to!

Excellent podcast!

Whatshername is so well-done. High quality, thoughtful, and one of the most interesting history podcasts. Up there with Uncivil for me.

So now I’m obsessed with Emperor Wu Zhao?

This podcast is just straight up GOOD. It’s so needed and so educational but at the same time I was totally entertained and drawn in by Katie and Olivia! Their dynamic is great! Can’t recommend it enough! Try it out if you like things that are good.
