Ridiculous. You spend five minutes revealing almost nothing and always say "It's a bit fuzzy" basically saying you really don't know shit except rumor. Five minutes even on Wikipedia would be far more beneficial

The name of the podcast is literally "stuff you missed in history class", and considering history class doesn't cover the female (or black or Native American ect...) experience, it should be no surprise that the topics are centered around those things. As they should be.

The announcer gal who asks us to send in our comments at the end of every episode either has allergies, a deviated septum, and/or needs to blow her nose. She is annoyingly nasal. Candace has the voice characteristics of an uppity rich snob and comes across as conceited. Podcasts are all about voice so why not have someone who sounds like they can breathe through their nose, and is down to earth with whom more can relate?

Deanna Nace Oh yes. I like their content, but it’s so hard to listen to the nasal voice
