Listen to The History Chicks podcast to get through Droughtlander

We tend to hear about all the great men in history, but what about the influential women? The History Chicks is a must to learn more about the wonderful women throughout history, and it’s perfect for Droughtlander.

The History Chicks is both a podcast and a blog. The podcast offers a discussions, while the blog goes into the details of the women, offering more reading so you can learn more. Either way, it’s something you need to check out while waiting for a new season of Outlander.

What is The History Chicks about?

The podcast focuses on women in history. You’ve heard of some of them, such as Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth I, and Jane Austen. Then there are others who you may not know as well as you probably should, like Ida B. Wells, Mary Pickford, and Queen Nzinga.

This is a podcast that looks at women from around the world. There are queens, Native American princesses, and the regular women who simply stood up for something they believed in. The podcast looks at women who have helped change the shape of the world, bring in new legislation, and give us something to fight for.

And it’s not just about the real women. The podcast also looks at some fiction, including Anne with an E if you watched the Netflix series.

There’s always something to learn, even if you think you know everything about a historical person.

Why listen as an Outlander fan

There’s no doubt that Outlander features strong women. And I don’t mean physically strong. When I say “strong women,” I mean strong-willed. They stand up for something they believe in and aren’t afraid to fight for those they love.

We’ve seen many women do it on the show and in the books. Claire will always fight for Jamie and tried to help change events in history. Meanwhile, Brianna looks out for Jemmy and those she cares about, and Marsali will do whatever it takes to protect those she loves, including her Ma. We have these women who are influential in fiction.

Now it’s time to learn more about the influential women in real history. Some of them are even mentioned on the show or the things they did in the past have had a knock-on effect in the present timeline of Outlander. There are others to look out for as we move ahead in the story, into the American Revolutionary War.

There are 162 episodes of The History Chicks and more are continually added. It’s time to make this your next podcast.
