    Ep155. Private War & The Only Woman on the Declaration of Independence

    When we get knocked down, we get back up again, rising from the smush like fruit flies! This week, the ladies are covering two war-time journalists separated by hundreds of years but have a surprising amount in common. First, Kelley tells the story of Marie Colvin, a war journalist who looked like she stepped out of a Bond film, but instead of taking out enemy spies, she sought to cover the tragedy and chaos of war- no matter the cost. Then, Emily covers Mary Katharine Goddard, a Revolutionary-era printer, book shop proprietor, journalist, and patriot who put her name on the Declaration of Independence. Is it a dragon or Washington?? Doesn't matter because we're wining about herstory!

Addicting and fun!

I binged this podcast in about three months and adored every second of it. So many podcasts are just a topic but you really get to know Kelley and Emily so the show feels so full. The worst part is I’m caught up and now have to wait for episodes. Listening to them is like going home!

So sad to be all caught up

I found you ladies about 3 months ago. I have been with you through all the craziness of the past two years. Thank you for allowing me to come into your lives weekly, or daily for me. I have never been so sad to be caught up. Now I have to find something else to listen to on my commute and while in the shower. Thank you for being so awesome!!!

New listener

I just recently found this podcast while scrolling for something history related to listen to and all I can say is I am obsessed!!! They do an amazing job of giving the women they talk about the spotlight they deserve. Plus the ladies are just hilarious and unfiltered which is refreshing! I look forward to each episode I listen to. Side note, are they accepting friend applications for friends because I so want to apply!
