What's Her Name

What's Her Name is a podcast dedicated to "reclaiming forgotten history," through the stories of "fascinating women you've never heard of (but should have)." Hosted by Katie Nelson and Olivia Meikle, each episode since the podcast's launch in 2018 has featured hilarious and thoughtful interviews with guest experts, writers, and historians. For instance, the Feb. 1, 2021 episode "The Suffragist Senator" explores the life of Martha Hughes Cannon, the Utah woman who ran for office against her own husband and was elected America's first female state senator. The fascinating episode "The Muckraker" from Sept. 28, 2020 delves into the career of journalist Ida Tarbell, who investigated the powerful monopoly of Standard Oil Company. On the page linked above, visitors will find past episodes (and links to subscribe to new episodes on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or using an RSS feed), biographies and selected work from past guests, and even links to special resources for teachers. Listeners can follow the podcast on Twitter (@whatshernamepc) and Facebook (@whatshernamepodcast).
