Since I last wrote about my favorite podcasts, there have been a few more podcasts that I added to my listening repertoire. Without further ado:
“Fashion history is about more than pretty clothes.” – Dressed Podcast
This podcast is phenomenal. It’s all about the history of fashion. You may think it’s frivolous, but it’s not frivolous. It’s well-researched, fun and interesting. The hosts are experts, well-spoken and well-educated. They know their stuff. Episodes are posted every Tuesday.
This one isn’t new to me, but I neglected to mention it during my previous blog post. The episodes focus on the most interesting aspects of history. Episodes are posted three times per week. Subjects range from Léonard Autié (Marie Antoinette’s hair dresser) to Alan Turing (the codebreaker) and everything imaginable in-between. Highly recommended.
This Day in History Class
This new podcast is a spin-off from Stuff You Missed in History Class (and shares the same website linked above). The daily episodes are usually about five minutes long. If you love history and “on this day” type tidbits, then I recommend this podcast.
I admit this podcast by The Daily Mirror, on everything British royals, is purely frivolous. I found it around the time of the recent royal wedding. It’s fun and sometimes silly but not mean-spirited.
Please share your favorite podcasts too.
