Introducing: Ephemeral

Ephemeral, a documentary podcast by Alex Williams, consists of stories that may be unfamiliar, but the themes are universal; it's a window into our own fragile, material existence that begs the question, “How will I be remembered?” This clip from the "Switchboard" episode covers WWI, women’s suffrage, and one of the most important inventions of the 20th century: the telephone. Interview with historian Elizabeth Cobbs, author of "The Hello Girls: America’s First Women Soldiers." The entire first season of Ephemeral is available now, and learn more at www.ephemeral.show
