About Bygone Echoes

Welcome to Bygone Echoes!

I’m Courtney, the creator of the Bygone Echoes blog and host of the podcast. I’m thrilled to have you here as we embark on a journey through the captivating world of history.

A Passion for the Past

My fascination with history has been a lifelong journey. Literally–I used to smuggle school books home as a child so I could read more about the topic I loved most. From the stories of ancient civilizations to the pivotal moments that shaped our world, history has always been a constant source of inspiration in my life. That and historical true crime. I like historical true crime.
