s5 e11 — CAMILLE COSBY and KHUTULUN: Just put him in a headlock‪!‬ Notorious Women

    • Comedy

This week, Lavetta covers the fascinating life of producer and philanthropist, Camille Cosby; and Miriam covers the little known exploits of warrior and total badass, Khutulun.
-----
In this episode, Lavetta introduces philanthropist Camille Cosby (American, born 1944), also known as the wife of comedian Bill Cosby. The hosts discuss her origin of an upper-class upbringing with expectations to marry well. Cosby dropped out of college to marry a struggling comedian, and then supported his career and managed their finances. His wandering eye resulted in a child, and Cosby moved the family to Massachusetts to shield them from his toxic behavior. She returned to school and earned a doctorate, and played a crucial role in helping him pivot to clean, family-friendly comedy, including the creation and success of The Cosby Show, which portrayed a middle-class black family and challenged stereotypes. Despite the allegations of his infidelity and sexual assault, Cosby remained loyal and defended her husband publicly. Next, Miriam introduces warrior princess and wrestler Khutulun (Mongolian, 1260–1306), daughter of Kaidu, the most powerful ruler of Central Asia, and niece of Kublai Khan, first Mongol ruler of China. The hosts discuss her strategic role in Mongol military campaigns and her male relatives' efforts to prevent her from succeeding her father.
