Grace O’Malley — Irish Pirate Queen & Scourge of the English Empire [Chloe Skye]

Grace O’Malley — Irish Pirate Queen & Scourge of the English Empire [Chloe Skye]

September 16, 2020

This week, Chloe researched the 16th Century Irish pirate queen, Grace O'Malley!

 

Grace was infamous in Ireland and England alike. Her enemies feared her. Her followers respected her. And for over 40 years, she raided and pillaged English settlements in protest of the creeping Imperialism in her home country. A day after the birth of her son, she got out of bed to quell an attempt by corsairs to take over her ship.

Check out the full episode to hear these stories and more, including a final confrontation with Queen Elizabeth that literally went down in the history books.

Broadly Speaking #3: “Disney’s Mulan” Reactions & Review

Broadly Speaking #3: “Disney’s Mulan” Reactions & Review

September 9, 2020

A Broad is a woman who lives by her own rules. Broads You Should Know is the podcast about the Broads who helped shape our world! "Broadly Speaking" is a BONUS episode of Broads You Should Know where the hosts (Sam, Sara, & Chloe) answer fan mail, talk about their lives, and discuss Broad-related content they've been consuming lately.

 

This week, we're reviewing Disney's Mulan, released last week on Disney+ for $30 (+ subscription costs). Since we did an episode about the REAL Mulan back in March to coincide with the film's original release date (back in those pre-COVID days), we figured we should watch the movie and give our thoughts, including how good a job they did at adhering to the truth vs the original cartoon.

Lucy Parsons — Anarchist Leader of the Labor Party and Advocate for Workers’ Rights [Sara Gorsky]

Lucy Parsons — Anarchist Leader of the Labor Party and Advocate for Workers’ Rights [Sara Gorsky]

September 2, 2020

This week, Sara researched Lucy Parsons, and enlightens all us Broads as to the history of the Labor Party & Anarchist Movement in the early 20th Century United States!

 

Lucy Parsons fought her entire life for workers' rights. She was possibly born a slave, but claims not to be Black at all. Still, she is considered by many to be one of the most important figures in the Labor Movement throughout 20th Century America. She was considered by the FBI and various government agencies to be "more dangerous than 100 rioters" due to her skill as an orator to unite people behind a common goal.

She and her husband Albert Parsons were both a part of the Haymarket Riot, for which Albert was hanged, despite later evidence revealing him to be innocent.

Check out the full episode to learn more about what Lucy Parsons accomplished during her life, and why she is a Broad You Should Know!

Yoko Ono — Avant-Garde Artist & Activist for Peace Who Definitively Did Not Break Up the Beatles [Sam Eggers]

Yoko Ono — Avant-Garde Artist & Activist for Peace Who Definitively Did Not Break Up the Beatles [Sam Eggers]

August 26, 2020

This week, Sam researched Yoko Ono, and finally answers the question of whether she broke up the Beatles (spoilers: she didn't!).

 

Yoko Ono's life was rarely easy. She was in Tokyo during the bombing of Japan in WWII, and her family was forced to beg for food. She later lost a daughter and husband to a Christian Japanese Cult. John Lennon was killed in front of her. And on top of all of that, she was vilified in the press. Despite everything, she's managed to continue creating artwork and contributing to charitable causes, usually pushing for global peacekeeping efforts. She's performed her unique brand of avant-garde around the globe, including at Carnegie Hall, doing shows in both English and Japanese.

Check out the full episode to learn more about why Yoko Ono is a Broad You Should Know!

Annie Edson Taylor — Went Over Niagara Falls in a Barrel [Sam Eggers]

Annie Edson Taylor — Went Over Niagara Falls in a Barrel [Sam Eggers]

July 22, 2020

This week, Sam tells us a tale as old as time... or at least as old as the 63-year-old woman who survived a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel!

 

The schoolteacher recognized that daredevil feats were all the rage, and her work as a schoolteacher at Charm School wasn't quick paying the bills. She hatched a scheme to deliberately go over the Falls in a barrel—one that she designed herself—on her 63rd Birthday.

 

Was she successful in getting rich quick? Was there any fallout (ha) from her decision? Check out the episode to hear the full tale of Annie Edson Taylor!
