Nefertiti (with Gina Berry)

Friend of the podcast Gina Berry joins us to talk about one of her favourite women from history: Nefertiti! In this incredibly long conversation, we get into exactly how long ago Nefertiti lived (VERY LONG AGO), how unusual her husband Akhenaten’s reign was (VERY), and how messed up everything still is vis-a-vis her famous sculpture and where it’s located.
