These two crack me up. Nathan's laugh is infectious and delightful. Katie is witty and quick. Their research is deep, their interpretations are poignant, and their interaction is priceless. Keep up the good work. I love the podcast.

Episode Date
Hypatia of Alexandria
47:41

Hypatia of Alexandria wears many hats. Philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician. And for a woman in the 4th and 5th century... well that's a big deal. Hypatia helped shaped the minds of an entire generation of leaders, but not everyone was a fan. Join us here as we discuss her life.

Anne of Cleves, part 1
1:00:58

Ever since she hit the stage with all her sass in Six the Musical, Anne of Cleves has been a person of interest to so many of you. And we can't blame you. While she may be Henry VIII least known wife, that doesn't make her any less fascinating. In this episode we'll dive into her earlier years, family dynamic, a few surprising tid-bits and try to answer that age old question... Was Anne of Cleves ugly (spoiler alert: no)?

Empress Myeongseong
1:28:22

We are so excited to venture to the East to dive into Korean politics and just the bananas royal family that Empress Myeongseong married into. Queen Min really won our hearts over with her love of books, learning, and tried to move her people into the forward-thinking future. The downside? She had a father-in-law from hell!

Aretha Franklin
1:20:27

Welcome back to season 5! We are SO excited to show some respect to the one and only Queen of Soul... Aretha Franklin!


With the new Jennifer Hudson movie out about her life, we thought this would be the perfect time to talk about the good times, the bad times, and the really good music that made the life of this absolute queen. Sadly for you, we cannot afford the rights to any of her music, so (I'm sorry), there's a lot of off-key singing in this one #wesaidweweresorry


We paired our lady of soul with a Soul Kiss cocktail that we think you're going to love.

Emma of Normandy part 1
1:04:15

Emma of Normandy wasn't interested in being just the king's wife. She wanted a seat at the table, but it seems like her husband, king Ethelred (the unready) had other ideas. See how our girl went from the new girl in town to a full-blown powerhouse queen in part 1 of our season 4 finale.

Catherine the Great, pt 4
1:10:49

We've now come to the end of the story, and wow what a story it was. Empress Catherine II of Russia (aka The Great) wasn't perfect. She's complicated, contradictory but endlessly fascinating and we can't wait to tell you the rest of her story. Despite what she did there is no doubt that Catherine the Great Empress of Russia is one of the most influential women in history. Cheers!

Hortense Mancini part 1

Hortense Mancini's life was a wild ride. Born into one of the richest families, her life saw lots of ups and downs. Money can't buy happiness, especially when it comes to an unhappy marriage. No amount of money in the world could have saved this pairing, but we'll get into that more later. Some call her family the Kardashians of the 17th century. We're not sure what to call her besides fabulous. Today we're drinking a strawberry mimosa and getting to know Hortense Mancini!
