This is one of my earliest Halloween-inspired bonus episodes, finessed and remastered, to get you warmed up for our Tudor-era Halloween special next week. It will take us from the ancient world into the Tudor and Victorian eras and beyond, exploring that age-old link between women and poison. It's a perfect companion to the spooky season! And it'll teach us some bizarre and fascinating things about the Tudor monarchs' paranoia about poison.
For show notes, suggested reading, a list of my sources and more, go to my website. To explore the treasure trove of bonus materials, including more episodes about women and poison, check out The Exploress Patreon.
