Hey, remember season 5 of Game of Thrones when Cersei had to do the literal walk of shame? Turns out, like a lot of Game of Thrones, it actually happened! (well, without the dragons and ice monsters). Emily tells Karamia about Jane Shore, the mistress of Edward IV who was punished for Harlotry by walking through the streets Cersei-style! Along the way, we attempt to unravel the sticky time web of War of the Roses, and ask....why did everyone have to name their kids Edward, Henry, and Richard and not something unique like Moonshine? So grab your Kirtles and Tapers and a big ol' mug of wine, and join us for ye olde fashioned Harlotry!
