Like podcasts?! Nerd out on some history with me and get inspired!

At the End of the Tunnel Light Watkins does a fantastic job interviewing people who inspire with their own journeys! I particularly enjoyed listening to Ava DuVernay's. 

The History Chicks These ladies really know what they are doing - so well researched and fun to listen to! Learn about women in history and wonder why you didn't learn this in school. 

You Must Remember This Pretty fabulous storytelling podcast about the secrets and/or forgotten stories of Hollywood's first century. Addictive, fun, so me!

Stuff You Missed in History Class Truly wonderful podcast well presented by two women, both of whom tirelessly research and listen to their fans' suggestions. You can hear about how the French women stuck it to the Germans during the invasion using their clothes, to all about Hercules Mulligan of the American Revolutionary War (only briefly mentioned in the ever-present and popular Hamilton musical). 

Dressed it's about the history of fashion but oh so much more! Fashion reflects the times my friends! Very fascinating stuff!

Dear Sugar Radio If you are like me and a fan of Cheryl Strayed (Tiny Beautiful Things) you will love how she teams up with Steve Almond, the original Dear Sugar of the Dear Sugar advice column. Together they give the most insightful advice. Definitely worth a listen. 

Want to learn dance as an adult? My favorite form of exercise! I have been doing ballet with a few teachers and recently started tap!

For great gifts or to just treat yourself I highly recommend checking out !! Not only does it have really comfortable t-shirts and sweatshirts with designs of beloved books from yesteryear, but they donate a book to charity every time an item is purchased. Additionally, they do have actual hardback copies of certain classics which when given with their matching t-shirt, make a pretty memorable present!

(and no, I don't get any kickback from them for this, WISH I did!)
