Move over, Drunk History, there's a new inebriated storytelling show in town. It's called High Herstory, and features hilarious women telling and re-enacting the stories of unsung women while stoned.
Despite the internet clamoring for a high version of Drunk History for years, creator Derek Waters thought it couldn't be done. But High Herstory creators Annette Mia-Flores (New Amsterdam), Jenny Joslin (Money Monster), and Kendall Watkins have been proving him wrong since 2017, when they first dropped a web series featuring the stories of birth control philanthropist Katharine Dexter McCormick, sexually-liberated author Mary MacLane, and feminist publisher Valerie Solanas. The show's hosts tell stomach-stitching stories in laid-back, almost ASMR tones that throw viewers into uncontrollable laughter.
“It is a direct response to Drunk History — a more male focused show that celebrates alcohol,” Joslin told Weedmaps News. “Why can't we get the perspective of funny women using this magical plant (which, like ladies, has also been misrepresented and suppressed) to interpret history from a female point of view?” The response from both viewers and press was enormous. “We felt like women were telling us, 'Please make this, I have a story to tell! I want to watch this right now!'”
