Kate does a great job
JennTripper via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/24
This is a great podcast for all you history pervs (or history perv-curious). It comes out every week. The conversations are always great. The host, Kate Lister—whom I believe I read somewhere has a PhD—had all the bona fides and her guests know their stuff. Her vibe is very informal and ready to...Read full review »

I have been listening for a year and am hooked. Great topics, wonderful guests, and lively conversation. I can always count on learning something new and enjoying Kate’s wit.
Radnor91 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/24
Both thoroughly enjoyable and informative, every topic is brilliant and easily explored for us non-academics. this is a podcast for the girlies (and others) who loved history growing up but would skip over the war section and go straight to the history of makeup, fashion, scandals, and...Read full review »

I’m loving these episodes and I’m so excited that I have 200+ episodes to binge! Really love the host’s pacing and loving the historical perspectives and interesting guests.

Learn something that might be scandalous, and will certainly be amazing. I always want to talk about the things they talk about on Betwixt the Sheets.

Great podcast exploring all corners of the human condition. And Stuart Beckwith is a power producer

Best history podcast among many winners. Highlights “herstory” with creativity and panache.
Kimcork via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/22/24
A pod I always look forward to. Fun but historically informative too. Love it.
Derek Blackadder via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/18/24
I love this show so much! Kate is a fantastic host, and the topics are fascinating. Listen now!
MariNimue via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/15/24
This is officially my favorite podcast. I’m desperately awaiting every new episode. It’s insightful and dynamic and challenges me to think differently about long believed historical ideas.
charlottejlk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/14/24
Kate Lister is a fab host! This pod normalizes female and queer sexuality throughout history in the best, most entertaining way. Kate has great hosts, especially Emma Southon talking about all things Roman and Eleanor Janega anything Medieval. It’s a great mix of historical profiles and history...Read full review »

Kate is amazing, absolutely hilarious yet educational and professional, her socials are a good giggle too. Have listened since the start and highly recommend the show. If I could give it 10 stars I would x
Emmi jay via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/11/24
This is by far one of my favorite podcasts. Kate is hilarious, unapologetic, irreverent and really informative - all at the same time. All the topics are interesting, thought provoking and well-researched. Highly recommended for history buffs and badass wenches alike. Love love love.
Leechi1111 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/09/24
This is a wonderful podcast! Dr. Kate Lister infuses every episode with her infectious enthusiasm, smashes many pre-conceived notions about sex and is role in history, and presents a vast array of guests who share their own passion and knowledge (special shout-out to Dr. Eleanor Janega. She is...Read full review »

Great show with a nice change of focus on topics compared with other history podcasts.

More than you think
The other Yank via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/08/24
Whether it’s the host, the guests, the subject matter or the overall vibe, this podcast is simply fantastic. It manages to thread the needle between lightly fun and educational, with plenty of sauciness thrown in for good measure.
JHR-514 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/08/24
Absolutely love this podcast. Informative, entertaining, funny! I’m obsessed with Kate Lister! Thanks for the great show!
Lanney220 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/07/24
Great podcast to do chores to! It is both informative and entertaining. You don’t have to be a history buff to listen to this. If you’re interested in society and culture give this a listen
swbery via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/24
Really enjoy this adult version of historical events. This is the stuff they don’t teach you in schools people! And it’s great, thought-provoking, and interesting. You don’t have to be a history nerd to thoroughly enjoy this podcast. Thanks Kate!
jcranmer756 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/01/24
loyally off base. Nothing to do with race. It’s about behavior.A Karen can be any gender or color. Expert? I think not
dwigl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/13/24
Topics and guests are interesting, but the host tries too hard to match the sexy subject matter. She is a well qualified scholar, and I would prefer she toned it down a bit, but we all have our preferences.
Stinkerdoodlepants via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/04/24
Looks like I found you just in time! A local kid from UVic in Victoria BC Canada talking about the sex lives of Neanderthals. How cool is that? Looking forward to going through the archives and then listening to future episodes!
Boundary Bay Flier via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/03/24
This podcast is the best! doctor Kate Lister is so much fun and so brilliant. The guests are always excellent! I’ve never listened to a bad episode and usually I’m so fascinated I want the next episode immediately! HIGHLY recommended if you like “adulty podcasts about adulty things”!
JulesK17 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/03/24
I’m a big history fan, but have found that some podcasts are far too academic and can become a bit hard to stay engaged with. I stumbled upon this podcast last year and really enjoyed it. I love Kate’s enthusiasm for the topics and she’s had some fantastic guests on. Unlike other podcasts there’s...Read full review »

I must give up on this otherwise interesting podcast, too much unsubstantiated and unproven claims about gender, queer, trans etc. The straw that just broke my back: there were trans people during the Egyptian period (because trans people have always existed), yet they were never mentioned in...Read full review »

The History Hit crews really keep me going on my commutes everyday. This is especially true of Kate Lister, who never ever lets me get sleepy while traveling. I learn and I laugh and I look forward to every episode. Thanks Kate and all of the HH hosts! From Marianne in Arkansas.
MainArk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/24
Kate Lister is the teacher we wish we had in history class! She’s fun and insightful, and makes history as fun as it should be. I am absolutely in love with this podcast!
jtcjunior via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/24
The host and many of the guests have such a sharp/aggressive way of speaking I find it hard to listen. It’s possible to skip down the list and find something worth listening to.
Maxtopia via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/28/24
History as you’ve never heard it before. Kate approaches each topic with enthusiasm and humour - it’s made areas I’d have never chosen to read fascinating and engaging. I’ve roared with laughter at some of the stuff in these podcasts. Absolutely brilliant!!!!
sChudders via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/23/24
Kate is like a best mate that teaches you history. She equal parts smart and funny, and I look forward to her podcast every week!
PJ_Blue_ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/24
Absolutely love this podcast so fun!!! Kate is the best, her intellect and wit makes this show so great!!
Mary Ann Pack via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/05/24
I just love this podcast. Kate, the host, is a joy to listen to - she’s curious and knowledgeable, has such a great voice, and feels like an old friend. The team does an excellent job sourcing topics and guests - I’ve learned a lot! You’ll be delighted, entertained, sometimes shocked, and never...Read full review »

Love this podcast. I’m working my way through the back catalogue and there is never a bad episode- it’s my go to. Love Kate’s style of interviewing and I always learn something new!
Danielle McM via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/11/23
Honestly love this podcast so much !! I live for Kate’s funny one liners I reckon a brunch with Kate would be so amazing and the stories !!!!
Bethlulu21 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/06/23
Always a hoot and a joy to listen to! Perfect variety of topics. Thank you, Kate!

Absolutely love listening to this podcast. The topics are always fascinating and informative.

Can you please do something about the sound quality!!!?! Sounds like this in recording in the bathroom on your phone.
Akela263 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/22/23
I love Dr. Kate Lister and this podcast so much. She’s giving a voice to a lesser known part of history, with a side of sass. Love it all. Thank you!
EKG222# via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/22/23
Kate is hilarious and fun and this might be my wife and my favourite podcast ever. Her book is amazing and laugh out loud funny. Plus so much more.
Crackie Poo via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/19/23
I cannot get enough of this podcast! I LOVE IT!
StarkTargaryen430 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/16/23
Love that this show is bringing some taboo topics out of the shadows. Kate makes me laugh and I love her energy. Can’t wait to listen to all of the JFK episodes.
Joe2215 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/11/23
Both the host and the guests are well qualified and informed in the topics they discuss, but keep the discussion well, well away from being "dry and academic". It will make you look at many things in a new light. The only thing I wish is that the episodes were a longer, so they had time...Read full review »
