    Ep213. The Flying Housewife & The Landlord’s Game

    Ep213. The Flying Housewife & The Landlord’s Game

    It's a snowy, blustery day in Minnesota, so today's episode was recorded remotely which means frequent fur baby interruptions and drinking the cold away! First, Kelley tells the story of Fanny Blankers-Koen, a woman who had the totally unrelatable problem of  being too good at too many sports. She would pursue running and use her athleticism to reach international stardom and to tell the Nazis to go to hell! Then, Emily brings another daughter of the corn into the spotlight with Lizzie Magie! Lizzie believed in a more equitable economic system which led her to create a board game that would become the third most popular game on the planet. Swallow your shame and go back for your bottle of wine because we're wining about herstory!

    Ep212. Mother to the Boys in Blue & Wing Walker

    One year- ahem- week into the new year and the ladies are finally covering women with pictures! First, Emily shares the story of Mary Ann Bickerdyke, an American Civil War nurse who only took her orders from God and not even the Union's top generals could do a damn thing about it. Then, courtesy of Jasmine from Germany (LOVE YOU GIRL), Kelley covers Gladys Ingle, an adrenaline junkie girl, turned adrenaline junkie woman, turned airborne mechanic! Defying the laws of gravity and sanity, Gladys not only waked on planes in flight, but she did damn near everything you could imagine.  Check the obits and get yourself a good egg, because we're wining about herstory!

    Ep211. Hottie Without a Body & The First Daughter

    Ep211. Hottie Without a Body & The First Daughter

    As we cautiously move into 2024, the ladies are both covering women without birth dates, photos, or worse, photos of the entirely wrong woman! First, Kelley tells the story of inventor Alice H. Parker who filed the first patent for a natural gas heating system so that people wouldn't burn their houses down and could finally sleep naked. But why did this revolutionary patent that is the basis of all forced-air heating systems never get built?? Then, Emily covers Rosalie 'Rose' Bamberger who founded one of the first, and best known lesbian activism groups, but we know little about her personal life. Don't let old bottles forgot and catfish white supremacists for the FBI 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!!!
