The History Chicks

Women in history are often overlooked and ignored, which is something Beckett Graham and Susan Vollenweider aim to address through their podcast The History Chicks. The podcast has been around since 2011 with new episodes generally published twice per month. The most recent episode features Babe Didrikson Zaharias, who is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished female athletes of all time. Featured historical women include well-known women (such as Frida Kahlo, Queen Nzinga, and Harriet Tubman, to name a few) and some you may not have heard of (such as Mary Anning or Wallis Simpson), with each figure accompanied by a biography and plenty of pictures on The History Chicks website. Occasional episodes have featured fictional female characters, eras, and groups of women (Mrs. Claus, 1950s Housewives, and the Romanovs, for example), which explore the historical narrative and folklore surrounding those women. In addition to The History Chicks, Graham and Vollenweider produce a second podcast called The Recappery, during which they recap and discuss shows and movies prominently featuring historic women. Currently, The Recappery has explored the shows "Anne with an E," "Little Women," "The Crown" season two, and the movie "Marie Antoinette." The History Chicks also has a very active Pinterest board, which gets updated with new material with every new episode. Most episodes are around one and a half to two hours; The History Chicks can be streamed directly from their website or listeners can opt to listen via their favorite podcast app.
