I’ve listened to this podcast for years and think it’s just lovely. My only complaint is that they’re clearly running out of topics and going over obscure history, which is good, but not personally interesting to me. Another thing? I think Holly’s wheeze-laugh is....special.
I am 11.My favorites are mostly renaissance. I sew extensively on the machine when time permits. I am a Girl Scout and was very exited when I found the episode on Juliet Gordon Low. I do a fair amount of hand sewing,crochet, and mending my own clothes while listening. Please keep going!

It’s really a hit or miss from episode to episode for me, and you got to sift out the history from their politics. They are trying to hard to be ‘aware of what is going on in the world’ and so good topics get taken over
Appreciate these ladies!
Thank for continuing your work!!! I love your topics and enthusiasm. With everything happening your episodes give me something comforting to look forward to each week.
Very left wing biased
I’ll save you a listen and sum up 85% of episodes: white people are awful, we are very “woke” and liberal. It’s really hard to get past the super cringey “white guilt” persona these hosts put on. Almost every episode is some sort of PC rhetoric or apologizing for how history was. This is not a podcast about interesting historical tidbits, or even things you “missed”. They used to do some more interested topics, now it’s all very political. There is a clear bias and agenda that is being presented. No matter what they post about they’re always VERY heavy handed with their personal views and pushing a specific narrative. They hosts need to realize not everyone cares about their political agenda. The multitude of negative reviews make it clear a change needs to be made. Part of being a history podcast is the ability to share an UNBIASED view of the past. If you’re looking for that... this is NOT the podcast for you.
I’m surprised people listen to this
Listening to this was like listening to the annoying girls in high school give a presentation about something they’re pretending to be experts in but in reality have no idea what they’re talking about. They seem to just read off information from a book or Wikipedia page and offer no new insight to what they are taking about.

Hello, I am 12 years old and I started knitting the week before Christmas. When I saw this I was like ooooooooooh!!!!
They are okay
The topics are cool! Their objective descriptions are cool.
Not a happy camper!
Love the podcast, love the research as well as the way you guys president your work. I REALLY REALLY DISLIKE HAVING TO WAIST TIME DELETING OLD PODCASTS THAT I DIDN’T DOWNLOAD. I have a setting for “NEW ONLY” why do you insist on bypassing my wishes and getting on my last nerve. I really don’t want to unsubscribe, but I’m really tired of deleting stuff I don’t want to hear again! Please stop!!!!!!!!!!!!
Interesting stories. But audio delivery needs help
Not sure why two people- one with a somewhat whinny voice- are needed to read a script. I would prefer to have the text and have the phone read it to me. Sorry. Good story but needs help with the audio
Fantastic Historical Accounts & Podcasters
I’ve been listening since 2013, and I continue to learn from the historical accounts these amazing podcasters share. Love them!!!
Love the show
I am happy for your attraction to the rose. Just wait til one pops open (suddenly) to greet u one morning. It’s thrilling

High level energy; presentation flows from research done
Have come to appreciate the conversational approach to sharing info found doing solid research. I’ve listened to most sessions in library & will keep coming back — not perfect but solid & enjoyable. 👌
I’ve been listening to this podcast for years, but I hadn’t ever looks at the reviews... until now! I love this podcast and its hosts. The two ladies are fun and informative. They pick topics off the beaten path in history, which is a breath of fresh air. As a social studies and English teacher I love listening to SYMIHC because they provide such a wide range of topics. I also LOVE it when the ladies include updates and corrections (everyone makes mistakes occasionally). Overall, this podcast is a bright spot in my day, and I’m excited to hear future episodes. Keep up the great work!
I enjoyed & looked forward to listen to this podcast until their opinion overruled facts. It made me really think if the information they talk about was even close to the real story
Have only been listening for a couple of weeks- but I love this podcast! The hosts are fun to listen to and I find myself laughing along with them. The sponsored ads are long and redundant...I get frustrated and fast forward through them. But- the price you pay for free content!
I really like the new hosts (even better than the old ones)! This is a nice show that I can binge in the car or wherever with very interesting topics (I like the murder & medical science episodes). However, I can see how some comments and topics can be very sensitive to people, and tone-deaf. But, overall...a very good show.

My favorite Podcast
I absolutely love this podcast with tons of useless information. I love when Holly and Tracy laugh... they are tapped and the laugh is contagious. Best hosts and best dorks. Do NOT change hosts ever... seriously... they make the show the best... btw the only podcast I listen to
LOVE THIS SHOW
A fresh perspective on history with an appreciation for things that are usually overlooked in favor of historical things related to the industrial war complex. Love the podcast on the Haunted Mansion! Thanks!!!!

Facts over feelings
Laughter is contagious
I have loved your show for years! This is the first podcast that I listen to and I started from the beginning of Stuff You Missed in History and am now on June of 2020. My walks and commute are when I enjoy your show. In response to the bit about your radio voices I have to say that your laughs are what drew me into listening. They are so contagious! On the serious side of your podcasts I have to say that you have opened my conservative mind in so many ways. It makes me not judge so quickly and to make sure I am viewing a situation from all standpoints. Thank for your enlightening shows as history has always been interesting to me but not as eye opening as when listening to your podcast! Hope you come back to Portland for a live show.

Use to love this podcast until they started sharing their opinions as facts.
long time listener
It has become difficult over time to listen to. for instance there (Lost Cause podcast) they on a civil war subject. Talk about never in American history has a president ever disputed a election? Just in recent history in 2000 Al Gore who lost disputed it for 36 days (with no evidence). Then in 2016 Hillary Clintion to this day thinks she won (say the Russian's did it) with over 3 years to prove it was fake. President Trump has evidence to point to, but is block by judges on discovery. They will only look at the voting machines in 1 county over marijuana, evidently more important then the presidency.
Fantastic pushback to traditional view of history
For everyone big mad that acknowledging that women/non-white people/the working class existed in history...I'm sorry. Even as someone who is getting an advanced degree in history, I often learn about a new historical figure or event. Also, comparing Trump to the post-1865 confederacy was chef's kiss!
Was good, then that happened....
I started listening a few months ago and started with the first episode (all the way from 2008). I am now in 2012 and are loving the podcast. But one day I decided to listen to one of the episodes from this year. Terrible idea. Though I love this podcast and all about History. Holly and Tracey are just not the best host. Not trying to be rude when I say this but, they are annoying and just need to be stopped. Please I am begging you to get new host. This is coming from someone who only listen to one episode. I now go from listening to 5 episodes or more a day to just 2, out of fear that Holly and Tracey will just start becoming the host. I hope I phrased this right. It used to be an amazing podcast. I hope you take my comment and everyone else who agrees and decided to make a change. Thank you 😊
I’ve loved the info but just got too liberal. I never listened because of your opinions. I listened for the facts. Makes me not trust the info anymore. Disappointing...
Amazing Show and Eye Opening
Great job showing the complete and udder hypocrisy of the legacy media. Hopefully 2021 will be their demise.
Informative and enjoyable
Throughout this pandemic season, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed listening to these lovely people share stories of people, places, and things (all the nouns!) in a wonderful distraction.
Stuff You Missed I’m History Class
When I discovered this I was overjoyed! I love both hosts and the informative yet casual and fun methods of presentation. Thnx loads for this show. Brenda K
Ignore the sexists
This is a wonderfully fun and informative podcast.
Viva la quetlaxochitl 🌺 (12/2 Poinsett podcast)
2020 has brought quite a resurgence of Aztec pride with Mexicans reappropriating their quetlaxochitl flower, ripping it firmly out of Poinsett’s mitts. This one belongs with the Columbus conversation. It really is a great year for us to get to setting history straight. Chapters and chapters of it. PS: love your podcast!
All around great podcast
I love listening to this podcast. One of the few podcast I listen to that I actually learn something.
Why did iheart add all of these extra episodes!?
I used to be a huge fan of this podcast and listened to every episode. But now they have all these extra behind the scenes and mini episodes clogging up my feed so I decided to unfollow it. I wish these extras were just compiled into one episode - there’s no need for a behind the scenes. Please don’t do this to SYSK!!
Gone down hill
We get it you “ladies” are liberal or you are are being paid to pose as liberals. Make it about history, not just the history you want attention for talking about. Pathetic
Could you guys do something on skiing?
Fresh and Fun History!!
Holly and Tracy, I love you ladies! Have been listening for a few years now and finally getting around to a review😅...anyways, I couldn’t imagine hosts more suited to presenting this content. You always make it light and intriguing no matter what the subject matter. Thanks for keeping us enlightened!!
Love to podcasts but not for people with misophonia
I love podcasts with interesting and educational purposes. This is a well presented podcast but if you suffer from Misophonia and have triggers with swallowing then Traceys voice is almost impossible to listen to. I have been trying to make it through the episodes but i just can’t do it anymore. I guess I’m just going to have to go back to the archives with the previous hosts to enjoy this podcast. Sorry guys it’s not your fault but it’s beyond frustrating.
I want to like it
I really want to like this podcast. I’ve listened to it for so long before iheart ruined so many. I like the topics and can stand the hosts. But why do a 30 minute show and then either do a part 2 or a behind the scenes mini? Just let the frickin’ show in the entirety and all of the information be available instead of so compartmentalized. It makes me sad because this was one of my favorites.
SYMHC Classics:Coubertin and the Modern Olympics
This podcast episode is one of your best. I plan to get a professional printout of the final quote by Coubertin of the principal goal of the Olympics, frame it, and place beside a horseshoe that belonged to my parents-in-law. The horse shoe will be nailed onto a board covered with Astro turf modeled after the official “Good Luck Touch Board” nailed above the tunnel entrance to the football field at Memorial Stadium on the campus of the University of Nebraska, home of the Huskers. Traditionally, as each NU player runs under the good luck horseshoe on his way to the football field sidelines. Most players jump up and touch the horseshoe for good luck. When I get a model of this good luck “charm” constructed, I plan to give it and a framed copy of the Olympic motto to each of my two children. My hope is they will place these items above some doorway in each of their homes where they and my grandchildren will touch it daily for good luck and inspiration from their grandparents. When I get these models completed, I will text you a photo of them probably around Christmas of 2021. Mimi Ernst 3360 Kummer Dr. Columbus, NE 68601 (Cell) 402-910-8418
A SYMHC & Sportsfan
One of the best
I love this podcast, and it’s hosts. Great information, presented with empathy and insight.
Fantastic! Three parter...he warrants it! Congrats on your choice of subject. 👍🏽👍🏽
Great podcast, ad overload
The podcast is great, multiple interesting episodes every week, but the amount of ads in every episode makes it almost unenjoyable. It honestly seems like 20% advertisements. I keep coming back for the content but get frustrated and end up leaving for other podcasts due to this
An Informative Treat
I always enjoy listening to this show because I learn something every time. Even the episodes that I look at and think, “yeah, don’t really care”, I always end up learning something interesting.
I love this❤️
I love learning about history and they make it so much Better I look forward to their new episodes and this is definitely one of my favorite podcasts I love how they’re so detailed about every little part in history 💝
I love this podcast that I just found I have listened for days
Always a pleasure
I have been listening for years, and while I do always listen with enthusiasm, I never fail to learn something I did not know. Love the hosts, their presentation is like listening to very smart friends who don’t lord their knowledge over you.
The Best History Podcast
There are lots of good history podcasts, but this one is the best. It is well-researched, covers all kinds of topics, and has warm and wonderful hosts with Tracy and Holly.
I love this podcast
I love history, so this podcast helps me understand what happened without having to research it. I would love an episode on the Holocaust!
