10: Doña Catalina de Erauso: Part Two (with Allison Epstein)

Special guest Allison Epstein (A Tip for the Hangman) joins us to discuss Doña Catalina de Erauso. Catalina was a 17th-century Spanish woman who became known as the Lieutenant Nun because she was a) raised in a convent and b) cross-dressed for success as a man in the Spanish army. She was also c) a dirtbag, d) potentially a serial killer, and e) wildly interesting to talk about. But how will she score on the scandilicious scale??

6: Njinga of Ngola and Matamba: Part One

Njinga, aka Nzinga, aka Ana de Sousa was one of the longest-reigning and most consequential monarchs in history. She ruled over Ndongo and Matamba (near modern-day Angola) for thirty-seven years and NONE of those years was boring. She was a fashion icon, icon for women over age 40 getting shit done, an icon in Black history, an icon in African history, an icon in anti-colonialist history, and SO MUCH MORE.

6: Hürrem Sultan (aka Haseki Sultan, aka Roxelana): Part Two

This is the second part of a two-part episode about Hürrem Sultan. It will make most sense if you listen to part one first!

Hürrem Sultan, aka Haseki Sultan, aka Roxelana, was born around 1502 and was captured and sold into slavery as a young girl. She caught the attention of the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire and wound up shattering all kinds of glass ceilings for women, the enslaved, and concubines as she ascended to become his Queen.

As noted in the episode, this is a video from Bery Istantul Tips that includes Hürrem Sultan’s tomb: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQcHyHoZ9Ys&t=6s

4: Malintzin (aka Doña Marina, aka La Malinche)

Malintzin (aka Doña Marina, aka La Malinche) was born in Mexico around 1500. Twice sold into slavery, she found a way to use her multilingualism and skill at diplomacy to make her indispensable to newly-arrived Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés. In the aftermath of the Spanish conquest, Malintzin has been viewed alternately as victim, villain, seductress, folk legend, and myth. But who was the real person?
