The Exploress Podcast

Mar 20, 2020

It’s 47 or 46 BCE, and we’ve stepped into a private chamber, where a woman is pulling down her saffron-colored veil. Today she’s getting married, but she’s no blushing virgin.

She’s also one of the scariest and least appreciated badasses that ancient Rome is ever going to see. Grab some good walking sandals, your sharpest hairpins, and a flint, because we’re about to light this place all the way up. Let’s go traveling.
