The Other Half of History
About This Show
The historical record has mainly been written and controlled by cisgender men, leaving the stories of over half of the population underrepresented and undervalued.
The Other Half of History is a podcast that focuses on calling attention to the experiences of people that have traditionally been omitted from the historical record based on their gender identity (i.e. women, transgender and gender non-conforming individuals). Additionally, each guest on the show is 60+ years old and is nominated by a friend or family member to share their experiences on air.
