This week, Max and Allison talk about two women who were not scared of raising their voices. The first, a French aristocrat living in the 17th century, became a novelist after writing one of the first in the world; The other, a suffragist and Irish nationalist, fought her entire life for her country and her pride: Madame de La Fayette and Hanna Sheehy-Skeffington.

We need this podcast!!
I loved it. Learned some, laughed some, and was even horrified a little that I hadn't heard of one of the women!!! It's hard as girls, we spend our youth reading history books filled with mostly the history of men, feeling like women barely had a supporting role - aside from what few women we DO read about - Harriet Tubman, Marie Curie, and the like.
Allison and Max are funny, well informed, and seem to care about schooling folks on some HERstory. So get yourself schooled!
Also, I've been working for years to reclaim the B word so any show that aims to do the same, I'm totally behind because I think it's silly to find it so offensive just because some men made it that way!
This website forced me to edit the B word...

Relevant and engaging!
Max and Allison are amazing story tellers and I look forward to my time with them every week! I love that they tell the stories of a broad range of women rather than solely focusing on Western heroines. This podcast makes me laugh, think, gasp, and encourages me appreciate the power of women in ways that I had not before. I would recommend this podcast to anyone who loves underdog stories and the power of determined characters.
