Stuff You Missed in History Class

Stuff You Missed in History Class is a delightful podcast by Tracy V. Wilson and Holly Frey that explores the kinds of historical tidbits that one can break out at cocktail parties. Wilson and Frey, who are both part of the How Stuff Works podcast team, have a knack for exploring all historical subjects - including the obscure, the serious, the moving, and the scatological - in engaging, thirty- to forty-minute episodes. Recent episodes have discussed the life and career of Renaissance woman and Aviatrix Lillian Bland; the Victorian "manure crisis," the consequence of over reliance on horses for transportation; and the erroneous conviction of eighteenth century astronomers' that a planet laid between Mars and Jupiter. On this website, listeners can browse through dozens of past episodes using subject tags that include "Colonialism," "LGBTQ History," and "Jimmy Carter." Interested listeners can also subscribe on itunes.
