A Weekly Dose of History


Podcasts – My wife and I recently drove to Las Vegas to visit with family. From Austin, that is a long, LONG drive (According to Apple Maps, almost 1300 miles) of 19+ hours plus rest stops. If you have ever driven through West Texas, New Mexico or Arizona, you will understand when I say that there is not a lot to see along the way.

One of the things that we did to help pass the time was listen to the “Stuff You Missed in History Class” podcast. These 20-60 minute podcasts are produced by How Stuff Works and began in mid-2008. We survived the monotony of the drive by listening to more than 30 episodes.

We are both interested in history and we like the broad range of topics covered on the show. Not all are favorites, but they were enjoyable and educational. If you like history, you will most likely like this podcast.
