Today, we are highlighting one of my favorites of the amazing HowStuffWorks podcasts, Stuff You Missed in History Class. As I began driving to work about a year ago, I quickly tired of listening to the same handful of songs on the radio, thus inspiring my newfound love: podcasts.
While I may be slightly biased, one of my favorites is Stuff You Missed in History Class. I have always been a bit of a history nerd, so when Holly and Tracy take us through some of the cool, random, fascinating hidden gems of history, I am immediately intrigued. In true form, their iTunes store description best sums up the eccentric (and fun!) trip through history: “What is the story of Encephalitis Lethargica, a strange epidemic that sweet the world in the 1920s? How did Sophie Blanchard become the first female career balloonist?”
I highly recommend checking out Stuff You Missed in History Class, free at the iTunes store. The podcast is up for a Podcast Award in the Cultural/Arts category, so if you like it as much as I do, you can head over to the official website to vote for Stuff You Missed in History Class!
