There's a well-studied phenomenon that men overestimate even occasional participation by, or mention of, women, but in case you had any doubt...
The excellent Stuff You Missed in History Class is hosted by two women, and though they make a concerted effort to talk about women, women still make up much less than half of the subjects of their podcasts.

Our grand total:
92 men or groups of men
66 women or groups of women
62 events primarily or exclusively about men
4 events primarily or exclusively about women
117 Ungendered subjects

One thing you can say about smoking: You know exactly what you’re getting, especially when it comes to pipes that you […]
We can’t all go through life with just a pair of sneakers and flip-flops. Sometimes, you have to invest in a pair of high-quality dress shoes. However, you’ve probably discovered that high-end footwear almost always comes with eye-popping price tags. You’ve got to compromise on second-hand or just suck it up and take out a […]
We have a theory about those throw blankets that are barely big enough to cover your legs. The only people who seem to make them or use them are grandmothers, and the blankets are only that small because Nana got bored halfway through the sewing job. Look, we’re sure she means well. But if you […]
