Episode 21 - Differently Abled Heroes

Welcome to the Unsung Sluts Podcast - Episode 21, a look at two amazing differently-abled women. In this episode, Stacie tells us about the life and activism of Haben Girma, a woman born deaf-blind who has committed her life and career to making the world a better place for people with disabilities and Tabitha tells us about the adventures of Annette Kellerman, whose childhood illnesses and disabilities led to stardom.

Episode 20 - W.T.A.F.?

Sometimes in our research, we come across stories that have us saying, "What The Actual F*ck?!" Episode 20 features two such stories. Tabitha tells us about "Queen of the Universe," Mandukhai Sechen Khatun, and Stacie shares the extremely WTF? story of Lady Grange.

 Mandukhai Sechen Khatun (c. 1449 – 1510)
