If you’re like me, you are still excited to learn about women’s history even when you’re not in school. If you are stuck on a long car ride or flight, it’s always helpful to have a few podcasts loaded onto your cell phone or tablet.*
These podcasts don’t necessarily have a common theme other than “women’s history,” but I think that you might find something of interest to you here.
