We did it! Next week will mark a full year of publishing The History Fangirl Podcast, and this week marks the 50th episode, so it felt like the right time to do a retrospective of the first 12 months of the show. My producer picked a handful of his favorite clips (it was too hard for me to pick!) from the past year, and so this episode looks back on some of the fun and fascinating stories my amazing guests have told.
As we wrap up this year and focus on the next one, I do want to say that I’m blessed to have had so many smart, insightful and entertaining guests on this show. I’m a travel writer by trade and a history buff by passion, and honestly the guests that have come on have done such a great job of fueling my love of both. I also want to say thanks to all of the listeners who have downloaded the show, reviewed it on your podcast app of choice, or sent me a note to say they enjoyed a particular episode. Putting this show out into the world was a big leap for me, and it’s turned out to be one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had. So thank you.
