Entertaining way to learn!

History Chicks is entertaining, well researched, and just all around fun to listen to. I have two degrees in history but never once took a class about women in history. As I listen to each episode, I'm shocked by what I never learned. There's so much to know, understand, and appreciate.

Great Historical Narratots!

I could listen for hours. I actually rewound it to make sure my minds eye had characters in their right family relationship. Major problem is that the story cut off!
