Customer Reviews

Quick, Informative, & Entertaining

Most of the time, listening to a podcast is an hour long commitment, but I love these shorter episodes! They are fun to listen to and have information I don't already know (and I know a lot of random crap). Overall a great quality podcast, easy to fit in your lineup!

10 minutes or less...perfect

Emily and The Story Behind will make you smarter, allow to appreciate the history of everyday things, and even help you relive your childhood. The podcast is so relatable and her voice I could listen to all day. Please give this podcast a shot because all you need is a few minutes. What a well packaged little snippet.

Education worthy!!

This show is so much fun and it's packed with tons of interesting information. I really enjoyed listening to it. I give it 5/5 and recommend. Subscribed!
