Must Listen

I'm still working through this podcast and haven't caught up to the latest episodes yet, but I'm very much enjoying it so far. I work in a factory and use podcasts to engage my brain while my hands are doing their thing for eight hours a day (Ashkur Allah for muscle memory!). Normally I stick to fiction, but I love "Stuff You Missed in History Class" and decided to give this a try. I appreciate learning more about the history of the labor movement, how we've ended up where we are, and what potential avenues the future holds. I've found it very accessible; what college I did undertake left me with only the barest bones knowledge of the labor movement. The audio quality is good enough that I don't have to fidget with my volume too much-- fidgeting is a problem when your hands are covered in wax or dye! Can't wait to catch up next week, though dreading the wait between episodes haha.
