The 10 Best Podcasts for Your Holiday Roadtrip

Stuff You Missed in History Class

HowStuffWorks.com’s history podcast explores just what it promises to — historical gems you don’t remember or, more likely, never learned about. This is not the sixth-period American Revolution outline you intentionally slept through. It’s an exploration of the obscure, multi-faceted, often whimsical, finer points of history that have shaped medicine, politics, and culture in unexpected ways. One of their episodes was the inspiration behind our recent gallery of the world’s first mug shots. And that’s just a glimpse into the treasure trove dug up in this show, as well as its futuristic correlative Stuff From the Future and contemporary counterpart Stuff You Should Know.
