Marie Antoinette - The History Chicks
I have just come across this female orientated history podcast. One of the things that makes history interesting is thinking about what the lives of people in the past were really like. How for example, would you cope with having to wait to be dressed by the highest ranking woman in the room?
This was one of the many weird things that Marie Antoinette had to cope with. The History Chicks are a couple of enthusiastic history fans who are interested in the experience that she went through in her life. They share their fascination with gusto in this podcast. Its quite a ride. Personally, I found I had to split listening into two sessions. It was a bit too high energy for me to take the full hour long show in one go. But a very interesting approach and I will certainly be back for more. If you like your history on a human scale you will probably enjoy them too.
