How Did We Not Know That

World History Podcast
Available wherever you get your podcasts

Hello friends (Jac here), as you can tell HDWNKT has since come to an unofficial end. We are both very sad about this, but wanted to make the announcement that I have since started a new podcast. Please check it out if you are interested and thank you for all of the support.


Hosts Jac and Nat are fresh out of college and studying for the Foreign Service Officer Test. Unfortunately, they have quickly realized how little they know about world history. Join them each week as they sit down and have a conversation about influential moments in history and ask, “How did we not know that?”.
