I love, love, love, love, love Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast. It is hosted by two smart, funny and thoughtful women who spend hours researching topics before writing and presenting them. And the sheer range of topics covered is impressive. The history of air conditioning, the Georgia gold rush, the Great Moon Hoax of 1835 (!), the Battle of Ambos Nogales, Lucretia Mott, the Zoot Suit Riots, and Levi Strauss. And that’s just August!
Be careful when listening, all topics aren’t suitable for all ages. Also, the hosts tend to cover their topics in depth and that can involve death, destruction, war and/or sexual violence.
For the casual listener all the way out to the history buff, this podcast is guaranteed to please.
