Podcast Q&A

Which episode should someone start with?

Each episode is a stand-alone, so it's fine to listen in any order. The most popular episodes are The Wampanoag & the Thanksgiving Myth, Yellowstone National Park, and Agatha Christie.

Which have been your favourite episodes so far?

That would be like naming my favorite kid!

Which episode are you most proud of?

I really enjoy putting together short series of episodes on related topics, and I'm trying to be sure to really push myself on covering stories in US history that get too little attention. In May 2022 I did a series of episodes on Asian American and Pacific Islander History that I'm really proud of. States are only just starting to acknowledge the importance of covering this history in the classrooms, and my guests stressed just how little this history is discussed.

What is your favourite other podcast that isn't yours?

My very favorite podcast is Lovett or Leave It; it gives me a much-needed laugh break each week.

How did you come up with the name for your podcast?

I briefly called it in the Unnamed History Podcast, which I still find amusing. :) I decided on Unsung History because I wanted to indicate that these aren't the history stories you've heard your whole life. I focus on less-commonly told stories. But I thought hidden or untold wasn't quite right either; I'm not *discovering* the stories, just helping to get them to a wider audience. So Unsung History it is.

Tell us a bit about yourself

By day I'm a university administrator, which is a never-dull job. I spend a lot of my non-work time podcasting (reading history books, recording interviews, writing intro narratives, booking guests, posting on social media, etc), but I have several other hobbies too. I have been knitting for over a decade and LOVE it. I also run (when I'm not injured), read & watch mystery stories, and go to theater, symphony, & museums in Chicago with my husband & kids.

This is a great podcast. I thought I knew a lot of history, but I'm learning about things that I had no idea about.
