I've been very vocal about my podcast obsession, but I want to highlight another one of my favorite podcasts today: Stuff You Missed in History Class.
I started listening to it a couple of months ago, and I've now caught up. That's hundreds of podcasts, but y'all, it was worth it. I learned about The Boston Molasses Flood, The Stonewall Riots, Madame Lalaurie, the Radium Girls, the plot for a Nazi King, The Emu War of 1932, and the Bloody Benders. If you don't know what those are, maybe you should listen too! But really, this podcast covers all kinds of history. It isn't just American history, they talk about things from all over the world. It isn't just about a period of time, but covers everything.
I think one of my favorites is the Loving vs. Virginia episode, which covers the Supreme Court decision involving interracial marriage. This case played an important role in last year's DOMA Supreme Court decision, plus I think it is relevant given the race discussion happening now.
I also love how the podcast does little series. Sad royal childhoods, crazy royals, shipwrecks, heists...they're all covered! I love the podcasts on royalty, their lives fascinate me. And I've never been too interested in shipwrecks but goodness, they are intriguing!
So if you are looking for something to listen to on your daily commute like me, check out Stuff You Missed in History Class! I look forward to each new episode and I think you will too.
