Great for showers

I listen to this podcast while I shower because it’s the perfect length of time to keep me punctual. However, as an East Tennessean I was so disappointed to hear Jenny mispronounc “Vol” (correctly pronounced with a short o) as “Vole” for an entire episode (Pat Summit episode). 😅

Female contributions throughout history from all over the world

Glad I found this; love the quick-listen format (lots packed into those few minutes). Also love the monthly theme organization.

Great for winding down after a long day!

I listen to this as I am taking an afternoon nap before the kiddos get home or as I’m getting ready for bed. Super calming and a great listen!
