Obsessed

What’sHerName is a podcast you’ll want to binge! I’m a little sad now that I’m caught up simply because I can’t wait for more! Katie and Olivia are telling important stories of incredible women in such a captivating way. I’m definitely obsessed with this podcast and it’s turned me onto many great books as well! You need to listen, simple as that.
(It’s no surprise the podcast is so good, Katie is an amazing professor!)

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.
