What is this?
First off: This isn’t History 101 and there is no test.
Secondly, our goal is to introduce you to female characters in history, factual or fictional via our podcast and shownotes. An introduction, an overview and a little push to explore and learn more on your own.A
Tuck away a couple of facts to throw out at dinner parties! Dazzle your kids when they are learning history in school! Dive headfirst into the subcultures that exist for just about anyone! Redecorate a room in homage! Plan a vacation around a women that existed long before you but, for some reason, you relate to. How you use the resources that we provide is entirely up to you.
Why should I listen to a couple of chicks talk about women in history?
You want the facts. Simple enough. You want to know how the women are remembered, how their legacies live on and how you can learn more. We can do that! You want a show that is interesting to adults, but appropriate if kids are in the room and listening. Gotcha. And you like to get your information in a unique, smart, and conversational style. Done, done and done.
We are just like you. And you.(And even you-yeah, you- the one Googling our names. That’s BECKETT GRAHAM and SUSAN VOLLENWEIDER) We think that women, females, dames…chicks in history is a perfect topic to sit down and chat about. We don’t claim to know it all, but really? All of it would take more time than any of us have right now. And it would be kinda boring.
In 2011 we sat down in front of a mic at a big dinner table in Beckett’s house (which we lovingly refer to as The House of Wood) and started talking. We’re still sitting at that very table and still talking.
We like to talk. A lot.
