In this episode, Dead Ladies Show co-founder Florian Duijsens takes us on a wild ride through the life of JOSEPHINE BAKER. Perhaps best known for the scandalous dances of her early career as an entertainer, US-born JOSEPHINE BAKER was also a spy, activist, and mother to a ‘rainbow tribe’ of international children. She was also the first black person anywhere to star in a major motion picture in 1927; that same year she was Europe’s highest-earning entertainer.
