    #3 Elizabeth Armistead

    We’re back! In this episode, Holly and Elesha chat about the life of Elizabeth Armistead. Originally a prostitute of unknown origins, Elizabeth climbed the ranks to become a high class courtesan with earls, dukes and princes among her patrons, before eventually becoming the devoted wife of one of the most charismatic and powerful politicians of the day, Charles Fox.

    #4 Margaret Travers Symonds

    #4 Margaret Travers Symonds

    What with the recent 100th anniversary of (some) women getting the vote for the first time, we decided to chat to historian Norena Shopland and take a look at the life of Margaret Travers Symonds, who was the first woman ever to make a speech on the floor of the House of Commons. Happily the first of many!

    #5 Introducing Hannah Snape

    #5 Introducing Hannah Snape

    We thought it was time to cosy up by a fire and listen to the tale of the Pendle Witches. Were these women victims of a patriarchal society, did they believe they actually had otherworldly powers, or did they simply use this perception of themselves to gain power over others? We would love to know your thoughts!

    Thanks to our friend/historian Hannah Snape for the idea for this episode! Follow her: https://twitter.com/HannahSnape
