Stuff You Missed in History Class's Most Interesting Ladies
If you've been around the blog before you probably know that I am a fan of podcasts (though it's a recent develop). One of my favorite's is Stuff You Missed in History Class, which talks about, well, stuff if you learned in history class you might have actually stayed awake for.
This is an especially pertinent podcast to single out for All Lady July because the two hosts (both female) have gotten a lot of flack for talking about women "too much". (This isn't true, there's even a graph to prove it, but like proof of something has ever actually calmed someone down on the internet). So as a shout out to Holly and Tracy here are some of my favorite women-centric podcast episodes.
The Night Witches
All female Soviet flying regiment during WWII. If that doesn't intrigue you, literally nothing that I say will. But many earned the accolade "Heroes of the Soviet Union" and the tales of their harrowing flights made me grip my steering wheel a little tighter as I listen during my commute. Eeek! Also, that's just the most badass name.
