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??
