DIG: A History Podcast

DIG: A History Podcast- collaborative history podcast created by four women historians. We’re exploring topics from the ancient to the modern world, from all over the globe, from environmental to gender to political history, and everything in between. We tell these stories because it’s important to know what happened, but we always delve deeper, to talk about why it happened, and what it all means. We are teachers, students, and scholars, and we have a passion for making history accessible.
