Saint Drogo: Patron Saint of ugly people (and other odd saints)

you get a saint, you get a saint, YOU GET A SAITN!! EVERYBODY GETS A SAINT!!! No, seriously there's, enough catholic saints to go around and there are some who patron some pretty odd things. My personal favorite is St. Drogo, the patron of coffee and ugly people. Find out why he's connected to those two things, and much much more in this week's episode!

About the Podcast

For the Love of History
women's history, world history, and weird history
I'm TK, your guide to the past as we uncover the people, events, and little-known-facts hidden in the shadows of your old history textbooks. From empress baddies to activist profiles, turkey gods and the history of the toothbrush, tattoos, Pompeii peepees, and everything in between, you can find it all here. There is no telling how far we'll dig or how many "historical facts" we'll reexamine. No event too small and no topic too big, because this is For The Love of History.

We'll hey there friend!
My name is Tehya, I'm an amateur historian and avid google scholar. I love history and learning new things. I also LOVE talking and telling stories. My friends say I'm pretty hilarious, and I trust their opinions implicitly. I'm quite cheerful and always laugh the loudest in any room, much to the dismay of those around me sometimes. (sorry lol)
When work is slow, sometimes I sit on the interwebs and look up random historical events. And one day I decided to put all my loves, interests, and talents in a blender and I came out with a history podcast!
So why not give it a listen. I promise you'll love my stories!

Please feel free to email me or send me a message on my Instagram with any questions or inquiries!! I always love hearing from people!

Well, that's about it! Have a super great day! =)
