Heard it; Loved it: Stuff You Missed In History Class

Back in October I was starting my regular commute to work and in desperate need of some entertainment for the drive. I was then advised to give Stuff You Missed In History Class a listen and proceeded to listen for seven hours that weekend on the edge of my seat. In my living room. Yes, I couldn't even wait for the drive. I was, and still am, utterly obsessed. I mean, overlooked, yet fascinating historical tidbits summed up in a brilliant way? What's not to love? 

And so, after seeing that they launched their new site today, I decided to finally get around to listing some of my favorite episodes. (I've been meaning to get a list to my friends anyway, seeing as how I dote about the show all the time, they've asked for a few "starter" episodes to see what the fuss is all about... So I figured, why not share it with you? Spread the love, if you will.)

Spoiler alert: I like royal-related topics... 

The Amelia Earhart Mystery
King Ludwig Dines Alone
Victoria and Albert

What happened to the Romanovs?


Do you have any favorite podcasts, or episodes of Stuff You Missed In History Class? I'd love some new listens!
