    What’s your sign, babe? How many times have you been asked that? How many times has someone blamed their behavior on the planetary alignment or the stars? It’s all astrology’s fault. But there is so much more to astrology than just the ~signs~. Today we go into the long history of astrology and how we got from charting the stars to seances in the white house. It’s the Dark History of Psychics and Astrology

    Women. We really get the short end of the stick don’t we. And it’s nothing new. In fact there are women all throughout history who could tell all kinds of tales of when the odds were stacked against them. Or when history completely ignored them. Or when society made them out to be the villain. Or, when nobody believed them. Well kitty cats, today we’re going to talk exactly about those kinds of stories.  We’ll be focusing on just four women: Cleopatra, Catherine the Great, Jackie Mitchell, and Yoko Ono. We’ll talk about these women's true stories, and not the way history has retold them.

Spoiler alert: it’s MONEY… and making women feel awful. Buckle in, and get ready for the dark history of Diet Culture.

Too many ads

As much as I love Bailey from her Murder series on YouTube, this series is driving me nuts with Audible. I'm already paying for the platform, then to be hit with ad after ad after ad, it's very annoying. If I'm driving or working, I can't easily grab my phone to fast-forward every few minutes. I know podcasters need to earn money, but I'm already paying way too much money for the app to start and get ads, too. Please do an ad free or fewer ad version with the Audible version. No ads is why I upgrade to paid format.

Bailey tells the best stories!

I am so excited and this is literally the first podcast I am listening to. Bailey's Murder and Mystery series is the best and I know Dark History is going to be just as addictive!

....Meh

Why do I include 2 ads per chapter if I do a monthly payment for the app?, is not like some free internet podcast channel.
Yes, the jokes and "funny" voices are so forced that completely made me to lost interest in the actual story ....I dunno, too much of a YouTuber marketing in general. Watch the X files are even more interesting even if it's an old TV show .

Story was ok sounded like another Erin Brocovich

Love hearing Bailey tell the story and enjoyed it so much. The only down side was that it was hard to distinguish story from ads, maybe a little music in between? I listen while enjoying the devils lettuce lol

Sadly we all have suffered from companies like this. Even if we shut them down, we still have it in our blood etc

Dark Disappointment

I read the other reviews for this podcast and was very excited about listening to Dark History. I'm just an ordinary 70 yr old woman who enjoys crime podcasts and also enjoys history, neither of which do you get here...or maybe you do, but its so obfuscated by Bailey trying to be a story-teller, which she is not, that she totally misses the point! Bailey needs some education in history before she tries to set the stage for these historical moments. I'm not sure what kind of standards these other reviewer are using, maybe they have lower expectations than I do, but, in my opinion Dark History is NOT worth your time!

this story needs to be heard

Bailey is the best. even for a grim story it's still important to listen and learn about the real history. She's captivating. I highly recommend.

Love, Love!

I thoroughly enjoy listening to these stories. I watch, read, or listen to almost anything about true crimes. I also use Baileys podcasts and YouTube videos in my homeschooling for my older children. She makes it much more interesting to listen to! We just love it!!

Bailey got balls.. in a good way!

I, like many others adore Bailey.. I thought this episode was great. Thank you for bringing the truth to light, not just history but even stuff that is current today. You're right though, you need to watch your back with those Nestle cowboys! Bailey sure has balls to expose them to a large audience who follow her.. it just makes me respect her even more!

Child brides

I understand what you're going for with this episode but just keep in mind there were childbrides in there. they were not just normal people living their lives.

Way too many adverts

I really like this girl, but 3 or 4 adverts per episode each around 2 minutes long makes it hard to listen too.

Must listen!

For those who already love Bailey Sarian and for those who don't this podcast is a great easy listen (despite the dark content). Bailey is naturally funny and quirky but presents serious crimes/scandals that have and do go on. The content is well researched with incredible depth and I didnt expect anything less from her.

Just love Bailey Sarian!

It’s her storytelling ability, I started watching her YouTube channel a year or two ago and when she started a podcast I was thrilled! Dark History is shocking, intriguing and entertaining. It’s also not altogether surprising we weren’t taught these topics in school!
