What if the heroes and sheroes of history had Spotify?
Now you no longer have to wonder. Camille and Emmy curate playlists that historical figures would’ve listened to…now just press shuffle.
Who’s Behind Historic Shuffle?
Emmy is a journalism master’s student at New York University who likes bagels and strolling around Prospect Park listening to “Radiolab.” She went to James Madison University with Camille, but now she lives in Brooklyn without Camille.
Camille is a raiser of funds for a museum (and roof on the dance floor). She probably has coffee in hand. One time she and Emmy were in New Orleans for spring break and they beat Bourbon Street. They’ve been best of pals since.
What is Historic Shuffle?
Each week, Camille and Emmy will compile a list of songs for a historical figure based on what they think he or she would have likely enjoyed hearing. Thanks to their history degrees from James Madison University, they know how to dive deep into the crevices of the human mind, analyzing if Alexander the Great would have rather heard “Can’t Be Tamed” by Miley Cyrus or “Nonstop” by Drake.
