This is a great listen. Emily does a beautiful job producing the podcast. If you are a fan of Stuff You Missed in History Class, this is just as good. I only wish episodes were more often....
One episode in and I'm already hooked. Wonderfully paced & produced; great content about obscure but delightful bit of history.
Enlightening and Clever!
I love this podcast! Emily Gadek picks the most obscure historical quirks to explore, and so far she has always kept it interesting and clever. She's like a girl Ira Glass! Do yourself a favor and download it right now so you have interesting things to talk about at your next party.
