I have been listening to Susan and Beckett for 4 years already and they are my favourite podcast from all the ones in my list. Their personality mix is amazing, and I love learning history with them! They are fun, concise and well documented. Thankyou gals! You do a lot for our present world by...Read full review »

I’ve been listening for years, and heard about so many cool women I never would’ve known! These ladies do an excellent job of diving deep and telling a story.

I love learning about women in history and this podcast provides the best and funniest accounts of famous women in history. The depth of knowledge, research and passion by the hosts are notable and I can’t wait for more episodes. Would also love to have re-recordings or updated audio on older...Read full review »

I can only imagine how much work goes into making each episode! You make history entertaining! :)

To hear these two talk about slavery in any capacity. The upbeat tone is a real fail when it comes to tough topics. The hosts are unaware of their privilege and are often disconnected from the subjects they aim to cover, especially when they focus on non-Caucasian subjects. It’s jaw dropping at...Read full review »

Such a good show! I enjoy listening to it in the morning. It is so helpful to know all about important women in history! Keep up the great work!

How on earth you did not mention professor Martha Nell Smith and her digital project Dickinson.org, that exists since 1992 and deals with the erasures Mabel Todd did? Since part of your podcast is most likely based on Smith's research? Also how did you not recommend the film Wild nights with...Read full review »

This show is a gift to history podcasts and women all at once. The hosts’ camaraderie, their knowledge, their storytelling technique is unparalleled. Sure the audio is rough in their first few seasons as they were putting themselves on the map, but they improve that and it’s worth it. You learn...Read full review »

I was excited to find this show, but sadly it did not live up to the hype. From unprepared hosts to poor audio quality, this whole show just came across as incredibly unprofessional.

I just recently discovered The History Chicks and am currently listening from the beginning. I love the conversational, non-academic, story-telling way they share the lives of these remarkable women. I love that many of the women I have never heard of, so I am often learning something new. I...Read full review »

Once you do more than scratch the surface, these two are great and the most balanced and well researched podcast historians. Ranking with the BBC. The women they highlight, leaders,historical figures, entertainment personalities from across time and the globe are humans, not angels and not...Read full review »

The show is consistent and very well researched. I am a long-time listener and have learned so much! I also have to drive across Texas somewhat regularly so the long episodes work well for me!

Well researched ; informed - YASS!!

I have been a listener for a DECADE and this show has changed my life! The stories that Beckett and Susan tell us of women from history who have overcome all of the roadblocks placed in their way have inspired me to be brave, to reach higher, and stand up for myself. I have gone back to school,...Read full review »
Titania Red via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/09/23
The premise of this podcast is fine, but the hosts are apparently not academically-trained historians. If they were, they might stop superimposing their 21st century midwestern US opinions on everything. A true academic would consider all aspects of the historical context and use his/her...Read full review »

I barely touched the surface of this highly rated women’s history podcast when the sly comment on a woman who “had no business wearing a sleeveless dress” slapped me in the face. How two women can dare to present themselves as intellectuals on a subject so important, so long ignored as women’s...Read full review »

I listen to many historical podcasts- this is reliably my favourite as you are enfolded in the story, by women who are passionate about the subjects, without ever being egotistical.

Love these ladies and how they present women in history… with sources included!

Hi! I love this podcast so much. I love listening to any history podcast, and history is also my favorite subject in school. I’m only 12 years old but love hearing them laugh and hearing different options on different things. My favorite episodes are “The Statue Of Liberty 🗽” and “Ida Lewis.” I...Read full review »

I truly love the history chicks podcast. I’ve learned so much! Really appreciate the amount of time and energy Beckett and Susan put into researching each topic. But I since the show has two hosts, it would be great to hear from both of them, not just primarily Beckett. I’d love to hear more...Read full review »

This last Clicquot episode was so good you guys! Susan quoted Ira Glass about not making art or excellence at the outset, but thank goodness you both stuck with it. Your banter and friendship come through, thank you so much for doing all of this research! I love hearing about these amazing women...Read full review »

I think that your podcasts are so educational and funny. I normally hate history but I love your podcasts, I think that the idea is so cool. You are so fun to listen to. Once again I love your podcasts. ~I hope your are well~

Listening from the beginning again. Fantastic,again!

I started with Episode 1 a few weeks ago and have been binging it ever since. I feel like Beckett and Susan are my friends now. 😂 If you love history, you will love this podcast!!
Jrrokstate via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/28/23
This has been a fun show to listen to, but I cannot stand how every father or father figure/mother or mother figure is called PA-PA and MA-MA. It drives me nuts. Girl, these people are not your family and we don’t want to hear you speak of them in this way. Please consider stopping the...Read full review »

I accidentally stumbled onto this podcast and am SO glad! It is so interesting and I so appreciate the depth of research and commitment to verified sources/information. The hosts are delightful, authentic and have a way of making me excited to start the next episode. Thanks for this daily treat!

Joe Kennedy was a notorious antisemite and racist. The fact that Ann Lowe designed Jackie’s wedding dress was not a source of pride for him at all. Mrs. Onassis was a brave and fine person though.
Mamie's Baby via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/12/23
I found this show during the early days of the pandemic and it soon became my favorite. I love history and enjoy the way the hosts present each historical woman. I have listened to episodes multiple times when something in life makes mention of one of the subjects. I look forward for each new...Read full review »

I love Susan and Beckett. Their passion for history shines through. They do everything on their own. There’s no staff of producers, editors, and researchers. That said, it’s a beautifully produced show, throughly researched, and solidly put together. These are two brilliant women who go out of...Read full review »

Meh
I love the idea and subject of this podcast, but Beckett is incredibly self absorbed and annoying. She has to constantly make the topic about her, talks over Susan which actually is so condescending sometimes that it’s cringe. It would be nice to have a historical podcast (especially about women...Read full review »

This is my #1 comfort podcast!! I love this podcast so so much. Susan and Beckett have such a great rhythm and they cover so many amazing women! I’ve learned so much and I have the history chicks to thank!

I love the content and trying to figure out how to influence the younger generation with the stories you share. Thanks for all of your tireless reading and research.

It's always a good day when I check my phone and see a new episode of this terrific podcast. I am a lifelong consumer of random history facts, so many of the subjects are familiar to me and I always find the History Chicks to be both accurate and entertaining.Read full review »

Finding these ladies was a serendipitous experience. I have a long daily commute (37 miles one way) and was tired of trying to find radio stations and music. Once I listened to my first podcast, I was hooked. I love history and so enjoy watching shows or reading books where these women are...Read full review »

This has recently become my go-to podcast when I’m driving, cleaning, gardening, whatever! I love the deep dives on sometimes little known historical women. As a Christian, I also really appreciate the fact that Christian topics are presented with sensitivity and respect even though one of the...Read full review »

Finally- a history podcast that is easy to follow yet packed with fascinating details, covers such a wide range of centuries, and promotes women empowerment without sugarcoating the truth because let’s be honest, we’re only human. Thank you History Chicks!

Once y’all went progressive with this podcast, it went severely downhill. The virtue signaling is grating
RoseMiller98765 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/23
The chicks do such a fine job of being relatable, and so very human in their portrayals of these fabulous women in our history. I've learned so very much, and I am continually amazed at all the tiny details that are found during their exhaustive research. These chicks rock!!!Read full review »
The original jokt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/13/23
This is an ok podcast if you don’t mind listening to Beckett condescend to you and her co host on every subject. Also we always take the side of our subjects except if it’s one of the founders’ wives’ then we can barely talk about them without swallowing our vomit. Which begs the question why...Read full review »
