Ep 161 – Stones of Justice

Our villains mini-arc continues with a duplicitous dame. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we dig into Viven Fay (aka Cessair of Diplos, aka the Cailleach, aka many other names). With many many many tangents to celebrate the greatness of Beatrix Lehmann as Professor Amelia Rumford.

Ep 160 – The Villainess of Venice

It’s time for another year-of-women mini-arc, y’all! Join Deb, Erika, and Lynne as we begin to focus on villains. Our first foray into the territory of lady baddies starts in Venice in 1580: Rosanna Calvierri in “The Vampires of Venice”.

Ep 155 – Dark Waters of Mars

The first mini-arc of our Year of Women focuses on competent women, and Adelaide Brooke totally fits the bill! Join Deb, Katrina, and Lynne as they talk about Adelaide, her personality, her mission, her decisions, and much more. They also discover a possible tag-line for this year of podcasting: “It’s a whole different story when you change the POV.” Boy howdy.
