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
