Elizabeth Keckly
01:18:28

The Schuyler Sisters - a conversation with author Amanda Vaill
01:09:31

Since the musical Hamilton opened on Broadway, we've been getting a lot of requests to cover the Schuyler sisters, Angelica, Eliza and Peggy. (You sang that, right?) But we couldn't make it work because there wasn't enough material available to us to fill a whole show in the way we would want to...so we met someone who could:.Author Amanda Vaill.Amanda has written several award winning biographies, scripts, articles and...be still our hearts...has been contracted to write a biography on the two most famous Schuyler sisters, Angelica and Eliza. She's begun her research and graciously agreed to talk with us and dish Schuyler. We talk about the three sisters, the family that they came from, the families that they created, the rumors that surrounded them...basically who lived, who died and with Amanda's help, we get to tell their story.

In our last episode we talked about Mary's childhood, education and life as the wife of Abraham Lincoln.

Jun 11, 2016
Mary Todd Lincoln (Part 1)
01:06:40
Mary Todd Lincoln's life can't be defined by who she married and her husband's legacy--she was a lot more than simply a southern born wife of a president. Actually, she wasn't simple at all.
Jun 04, 2016
Madam CJ Walker
01:08:47

Apr 02, 2016
Beatrix Potter
01:43:50
Though she's chiefly known for her charming illustrations, Beatrix Potter was more than an artist and author; she was a scientist, conservationist, and a philanthropist who used her talent to better the world. 
Mar 27, 2016
Catherine The Great (Part 2)
01:44:21
When we last left the Grand Duchess Catherine, she was feeling alone, unloved and unnecessary. She had just given birth and the child, Paul, heir to the Russian Empire, was ripped from her arms to be raised by Empress Elizabeth. Not cool, Elizabeth, not cool at all.  
Mar 04, 2016
A Conversation With Carol Wallace
00:24:59
Life. It's funny, you know? Like the time both of us were sick for so long that we couldn't record Catherine the Great Part 2 for this week's show but, instead, have this conversation between Beckett and Carol Wallace? Funny in a "well, that's a little different" way. In 2010 one of us- Beckett- wanted to hear a podcast like her favorite book of all time, To Marry an English Lord, by Gail MacColl and Carol Wallace, but couldn't find one. So we made one. In 2014 we had drinks with Carol Wallace. In 2015 this conversation was recorded and lived in a computer until now.
Feb 05, 2016

Four Inventors
00:49:45
Lillian Gilbreth inspired us. After talking about her life and accomplishments, we thought it was high time to introduce you to four more problem-solving women whose inventions we use every day: Josephine Cochrane, Melitta Bentz, Mary Phelps Jacobs and Hedy Lamarr.
Dec 12, 2015
Lillian Moller Gilbreth
01:35:59
Lillian Gilbreth should be remembered for any of her life accomplishments: psychologist, industrial engineer, author, inventor, and pioneer in the field of industrial psychology. From her collection of degrees to her equal partnership marriage to her work with Presidents and to the trailblazing example she set for us modern mothers...she should be remembered for a lot more than simply, "the mother on Cheaper by the Dozen". Let's do something about that.
Nov 28, 2015
Mary Queen of Scots
01:34:09
Mary Queen of Scots got off to a good start: she was wearing the crown early and upgraded it at a young age (under the watchful eye of many an interested party),  but once she started making decisions for herself? Ah, that's when her life took dramatic twists and turns that ultimately took the crown off her head. Actually, those decisions got her whole head taken off, but let's start at the beginning, shall we?

Dorothy Parker (Part 2)
01:02:50

When we left Dorothy Parker in Part One she was hanging on tenuously at best. Her marriage to Eddie Parker was over, her relationship with George MacArthur was over and the fall-out somewhat stabilized and her suicide attempt was unsuccessful. How will this end?

Aug 30, 2015
Dorothy Parker (Part 1)
00:57:55

She gave us fabulous quotes like, “Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses” and “Brevity is the soul of lingerie,” but Dorothy Parker’s life wasn’t all wit and snark. Behind those flip one liners there was a very complex woman who lead a full life far beyond the banter of the Algonquin Round table.

Aug 09, 2015
Marie Antoinette Reboot (Part 2)
00:51:10

In Part One we talked about Marie Antoinette’s childhood, the speedy preparations for marriage and her early years in France. In this episode, the conclusion of our revisit, we get to the rest of her story as she travels from well-liked to queen to the (dramatic pause) guillotine. 

Jul 09, 2015
Marie Antoinette Reboot (Part 1)
00:54:38

Once upon a time there were two podcasters who began their women’s history show with an episode about Marie Antoinette. Four and a half years later they revisited her life simply because they felt there was more to say about this woman who has been long misquoted and misunderstood.

Jun 12, 2015
Lydia Pinkham
00:56:10

Women who need to be remembered often have Lemon to Lemonade lives and Lydia Pinkham is no exception. The going got tough and she turned some herbs (and a wee bit of alcohol) into not only an empire but a leaping advance in women’s health and education.

A quick status update!
00:01:53
Hello everyone! I’m sure you’ve been wondering where we’ve been… The library, yes, and assorted bookstores, but not, unfortunately, at the big table that seats 14 at The House of Wood, recording anything.

Joan of Arc
01:21:19

Joan of Arc, Jeannette, Jean, The Maid, La Pucelle, Hero, Heretic, Visionary, Lunatic…that’s a lot of names and titles for a teenage girl who is remembered for events from only a short period of her life.

Nov 21, 2014
Hattie McDaniel
00:33:59

You know that old story of the “overnight success?” A band you’ve never heard of bursts onto the scene and takes the world by storm. Often you find that they have twenty years of hard work and paying their dues before finally achieving their goal. The same is true of Hattie McDaniel.

The Women of Gone With The Wind
01:29:11

Once a season we obsess over a subject for our Fictional Episode and this time we let ourselves be carried away with Gone With The Wind.
