Enjoying the episodes. Anna Reser's point about UFOs (and the parallels between abduction stories and women's experiences of assault) is interesting -- I raised it at an HSS panel on UFOlogy in Toronto a couple weeks ago.
Great history podcast
Great podcast that pulls back the curtain on how history is written, focusing on feminist issues.
Important and fun
Accessible episodes filled with excellent scholarly critique. Their most recent episode on “Call the Midwife” celebrated the shows brilliant portrayal of women’s experiences, while also criticizing the show for essentializing progress” in medicine. These discussions will give listeners the opportunity to engage with historical scholarship on subjects that are often eclipsed or intentionally ignored.
