The goal of the History Chicks is to merely to introduce you to female characters in history, factual or fictional. An introduction, an overview and a little push to explore and learn more on your own.
Their Show notes will give you an short look at the life of the person that they are discussing- basic facts and links to other sources to learn more. (And maybe a few teasers about topics covered in the podcast.) The podcast episodes go into greater detail as we chat about the challenges, failures and successes, times, and things that they find interesting about the life of our subject.
