Starting off Pride month with an Ace historical figure! There is so little ace/aroace representation out there from history to even now, I wanted to ensure we start Pride right, sharing the sometimes batty life of Sir Isaac Newton. If you only know him as the man who discovered gravity, oh there is so much more and it is brilliant!

What's this? A good news story from history??? Officially referred to as the 1925 Nome Serum Run, the Great Race of Mercy was an Alaskan dogsled relay that quite literally saved an entire village of children suffering from diphtheria. Yes, yes, we know about Balto, but this story is so much wilder than the cartoon entails, I assure you. Also... Justice for Togo!!!

There's nothing typical about the King's favourite, George Villiers, the 1st Duke of Buckingham. A man so charming that a dukedom was created just for him, and so hated that the country celebrated his demise.

So after it stated that Mother Teresa is a racist with a white savior complex for helping these people. You then say she's just not helping them enough by giving them all her money. You just said she's a racist with a white saber complex for helping. Make it make sense.

So if you're from a country that is a bit more advanced and well off, and you wish to go to a country that is impoverished to help, because you care about people, that makes you a racist with a white savior complex, and if you don't choose to help, then you're a racist and heartless. So white people are just damned if they do and damned if they don't. That is a crock of shit.

first, thank you Katie, for being a phenomenal educator! I'd never heard of the Magdalene Laundries before today, and I truly appreciate the time and work you put into your research and production. But is anyone else getting ads inviting them to apply to work with "US Customs and Border Control?" I think the audience of this particular podcast are probably some of the last people Customs and Border Control would want to hire... so bizarre. BUT THANK YOU KATIE!

Love the pod. I do wish the volume randomness could be addressed. You're loud then soft then loud. It's very jarring.
