This week's episode is 'Killer Queens'. Liam explores the life of Queen Lakshmibai, the Rani of Jhansi, who joined the rebellion against the British East India Company in the mid 19th century. Zofia meanwhile looks at a different type of Queen, William Dorsey Swann, who led a fascinating life as a black, gay man during the 19th century and who was possibly the first identifiable 'drag queen'!
Tangents include: colonialism sucks, Shieldmaidens and Drag Race.
