circa 1959

When Queen Elizabeth II passed away on September 8, 2022, her reign was in its 71st year. That alone makes her a woman we would love to cover! Alas, we don’t spotlight subjects who are still with us, and, even then, we like to give them a respectful mourning period after they pass away. This allows time for her legacy to become established–that’s when we like to dive into her life.

However, we were able to discuss the early life of Queen Elizabeth II in our coverage of Netflix’s series, The Crown, Season 2 on our sister podcast, The Recappery. We’re playing one of those episodes today, Season 2, Episode 1: Misadventure.

You can find the rest of that season’s episodes at this link or wherever you get your podcasts:

The Recappery is currently on hiatus, but you can find all the episodes that we have produced wherever you get podcasts because things never go away on the internet, do they?

We do have two episodes on the remarkable life of Queen Elizabeth I, which you can find HERE, PART ONE and HERE, PART TWO (and that took 411 years after her death, which puts our QEII deadline for some time in 2433.)
