As part of Women’s History Month, The Atlas Obscura Podcast is bringing you classic episodes from the archive, including this story of the women who stepped up to produce thousands of guitars during World War II, only to be written out of history.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
