About

About the host

Emily Prokop is a puzzle editor by day, which suits her well, since she has always loved trivia, fun facts and useless knowledge. In 2015, she and her friend James decided to use their penchant for collecting trivia by hosting the Classy Little Podcast. When that show ended a year later, the trivia started building up in her brain again, not to mention countless time spent falling down Wikipedia rabbit holes. With that, plus a lot of coaxing from Nick from the Epic Film Guys podcast, she got behind the mic again and The Story Behind was born.

 

About the show

The Story Behind is the simplification of segments from Emily's previous podcast. Each episode is 8-15 minutes exploring the origins and evolution of an item, person or idea you may know today. The stories are told as accurately as possible, sourced from books and articles about that particular topic. There's a story behind everything, and once you learn that story, you just may appreciate your world a bit more.
