It’s a great way to study history. So today we are going to discuss the Fourteenth Amendment.

I really dig Dig History. It's great to get down into the depths of history and have my mind be taken to the lesser known pockets that the Dig folks have mined.
I especially enjoyed the Women's Reproductive Health series. I couldn't fathom family planning before hormonal birth control and the sheer numbers of usage were astonishing! It was really mind blowing to find out how far we have come and why it is important.
Aside from that particular series, the rest of the episodes are great as well. I have learned so much and I really love and appreciate the episodes with non-dominant culture themes, and touching on race and class and gender and the world and ALL THE THINGS! ....Anyhoo,yeah, they're great! Listen in and learn a lot!

Love this podcast
The hosts are professional historians and they don't take themselves too seriously. The info seems accurate and they have fun personalities. The topics are just weird enough to be interesting but also relevant to me in some way. I recommend!
