Her Half of History


10.8 Amalia Küssner, Portrait Painter (by Kathleen Langone from People Hidden in History)

Today I welcome guest podcaster, Kathleen Langone from the People Hidden in History podcast. Kathleen talks about one of her own distant relations: Amalia Küssner, who painted the portraits of the wealthy and famous during the Gilded Age and traveled across three continents to do it.

You can see Kathleen’s show at peoplehiddeninhistory.com or follow her on Twitter (@phihpod) or Instagram or LinkedIn.

I have personally appeared on her show twice: once to talk about Elizabeth Freeman, the 18th century slave who sued for her freedom and won, and once to talk about the experience of women in history podcasting.

Visit the website (herhalfofhistory.com) for sources, transcripts, and pictures.

Support the show on my Patreon page for bonus episodes, polls, and a general feeling of self-satisfaction.

Follow me on Twitter as @her_half. Or on Facebook or Instagram as Her Half of History.
