Hold onto your hats, it's yet another of Savannah's 'famous collection of women'. Inspired by Americans total and complete disregard for the fact that Thanksgiving celebrates colonialism, Savannah brings us a few Indian women who tried to stick it to the British occupation. Spoiler alert: it doesn't end well for them. Also, a discussion on the plur…
 
This episode has all of your favorites: spies, queer women of color, and the groundbreaking 1992 Whitney Houston classic, The Bodyguard. Jessica knew Savannah would instantly love Elvira de la Fuenta Chaudoir, a "cocktail grubbing party girl who cared for nothing beyond booze, betting, and batting for both teams". So, actually, just Savannah in a p…
 
It's summer hours over at the pod but we're bringing you a great one. Savannah takes us through the life of Huda Shaarawi, a woman who helped usher feminism into Egypt by casting off her veil and using her privilege to get things done.

Because history is written by men and men don't like when women do things they can't, today we bring you an episode with little information but lots of fun. It seems Chinese women were kicking butt and taking names on the sea, and doing it better than most. Jessica runs through a list of female Chinese pirates while Savannah dreams of all the movie…
 
2018 held such promise...until we went through half an episode without recording it.

Her courage and tenacity paved the way for many others in government today. Her authorial skills perhaps in…
 
It's Spooky Awareness month over at SNWP, so we're bringing you a spook filled episode complete with fortune tellers, curses, murder, and soap making. Listen as Jessica tells the tale of the Soap Maker of Correggio - Leonarda Cianciulli, a woman who went a little crazy and murdered three women to keep her son alive. That logic tracks. With our resi…
 
New quill, who dis? This episode we finish talking about Catherine the Great and her many accomplishments during her rule. From building up Russia's culture and territory to her predisposition for younger men, Catherine's reign is defined by her decisive victories and divisive rumors (yeah, we talk about the horse one). If you take anything away fr…
 
Hey. Listen. Research on women is hard. Being a lawyer in the 1870s apparently wasn't. Savannah speaks briefly on Arabella Mansfield, the first woman in the United States ever admitted to the bar. Jessica tries to make jokes and can't align herself with the right historical period. Oh, and if you're interested in investing in Such Nasty Cow Spit, s…

This may come as a surprise to some, but female doctors have existed for a pretty long time. Could we find a lot of information on the earliest ones? No! Did we do an episode anyway? Yes! Join us as Savannah takes Jessica through six biographies of lady doctors who saved lives even though lots of men tried to stop them. Because...idk only men shoul…
 
Kidnappings, court trials, melodrama, healings, tent revivals!

Do you know about math? Do you know how to math? Does anyone know math stuff? We sure don’t. Jessica talks about Sonya Kovalevsky, the first woman to receive a doctorate degree in math stuff and do other math related things that amount to pure nonsense. She definitely was difficult to work with and she probably had an affair with her friend’s siste…
