President Theodore Roosevelt had many challenges during his career… corruption in the New York police force, the creation of the Panama Canal , the Spanish American war, protecting the Grand Canyon and other national monuments, and groundbreaking anti-trust legislation But the greatest challenge he faced was a volcano in a blue dress, his eldest daughter - flouter of convention, spicy of demeanor, and perhaps the world’s first media superstar…who admirers across the world came to call America’s “Princess Alice.” Join us on our Field Trip to Austria in June of '24!

Frances Glessner Lee

Frances Glessner Lee

2023-11-1401:46:22

Frances Glessner Lee was the mother of modern forensic medicine; as an heiress and socialite, she might have been expected by her peers to live a staid, placid life. Her immersion into the gory and sometimes alarming world of post-mortem medical work led to remarkable scientific advancement in the field. Working on the famous "Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death" - realistic miniature dioramas of crime scenes for training purposes - made her a household name, but her diligence in outreach and research made her irreplaceable.

London Tour Travelogue 2023

The History Chicks met fifty listeners in London for the trip of a lifetime! From the coziness of Jane Austen's house to the grandeur of Westminster Abbey, we left no stone unturned in this magical city. We wanted you to hear from the chicks and roosters that accompanied us on our journey... and so we invited them to help make this episode. You'll hear tales of art, theater, adventure, and (of course) history - but perhaps the greatest experiences for the 50 people on this journey were the lifelong friendships we made along the way.

While we're on a Field Trip, we turned the show over to the Roosters this week with a Veuve Clicquot adjacent subject: The History of Absinthe with The Gilded Gentleman, Carl Raymond. Keep an ear out for cameos from Bowery Boy Greg Young, and Chris Graham Beckett's husband. Carl talks with Don Spiro, creator of New York's Green Fairy Society to tell the truth, and bust the myths, surrounding this historic beverage.

Lillian Gilbreth should be remembered for any of her life accomplishments: psychologist, industrial engineer, author, inventor, and pioneer in the field of industrial psychology. From her collection of degrees to her equal partnership marriage to her work with Presidents and to the trailblazing example she set for us modern mothers...she should be remembered for a lot more than simply, "the mother on Cheaper by the Dozen". Let's do something about that. We selected this episode to replay today for a very important reason. Hear that reason when you hit PLAY.

what a wonderful and informative podcast! I enjoyed the movies and book as a kid in the 70's and had no idea of the talent and strengths Ms. Gailbreth had. I look forward to exploring your pintrest page. Thanks so much for a fun diversion!

I think you ladies do a great job of thoroughly researching your subjects. I do food forest design and installation in Puna, Big Island, HI, and often go for your podcasts while I'm working because they're always at least an hour and a half with minimal commercial breaks- meaning I don't have to stop what I'm doing to fast forward through them. I'm mad impressed how you ladies crank these out with full time jobs!
