About Us

Sistory is (women's) history told by two women. As self-proclaimed history lovers, we want to share with the world all the stupid, ridiculous, unbelievable and unnecessarily complex things history has to offer. We believe in challenging stereotypes and empowering women, so the blonde is only the dumb one a third of the time. Sistory is your favorite history class without the stress, but with a healthy sense of irreverence.

Latest Episodes

Freddie Oversteegen: The Woman They Did Nazi Coming

This Sistory episode features a war hero referred to as a "real-life Black Widow," despite the fact that the Marvel character debuted almost twenty-five years after this teenager began taking Nazi soldiers out (in both senses of the word). We may never know just how many soldiers Freddie Oversteegen killed in her time with the Dutch resistance movement in World War Two, but we do know one thing: she is a badass.

King Kristina of Sweden Part 2: Murder vs. Incest, YOU Decide!

King Kristina of Sweden Part 1: It's NOT a Boy!

In this episode of Sistory, we begin to explore the life and times of King Kristina of Sweden, perhaps best known for contradicting every expectation imposed upon her from her literal birth, A queer (and possibly trans!) icon, Kristina talked loudly, swore notably, and became known as a great thinker of her time before her twenty-fifth birthday, all while driving her advisors up the wall. If that sounds boring, there's also discussions of the true nature of sleepovers, borderline necrophilia, and church graverobbing! (There's less overlap than one might expect.)

Madame de Pompadour: Head Selective Slut

What do superheroes, wombs, fortune tellers, and the specific meaning of the word affair have to do with Madame de Pompadour, head mistress to Louis VX? Not a lot, and yet we manage to bring all of them up in the pilot episode of Sistory.
