In her case, it looked like this: arrive in a new town, set up a darkroom, canvas the populace, ingratiate yourself, SNAP SNAP SNAP, develop, print, deliver, catch the train as it's pulling out of the station...

Frances Glessner Lee

Frances Glessner Lee was the mother of modern forensic medicine; as an heiress and socialite, she might have been expected by her peers to live a staid, placid life. Her immersion into the gory and sometimes alarming world of post-mortem medical work led to remarkable scientific advancement in the field. Working on the famous "Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death" - realistic miniature dioramas of crime scenes for training purposes - made her a household name, but her diligence in outreach and research made her irreplaceable.

We've combined our previous coverage of Empress Sisi of Austria because she's getting a lot of screen time these days and we found ourselves in need of a refresher, so we thought you might be, too. Both the Netflix series, The Empress, and a theatrical release, Corsage, cover different time periods in the life of this young noblewoman who was plucked from obscurity and shoved onto the world stage. She found the limelight a difficult place in which to live, but her beauty and her genuine concern for the common people earned her the status of a reluctant icon.

A Conversation With Carol Wallace

Life. It's funny, you know? Like the time both of us were sick for so long that we couldn't record Catherine the Great Part 2 for this week's show but, instead, have this conversation between Beckett and Carol Wallace? Funny in a "well, that's a little different" way. In 2010 one of us- Beckett- wanted to hear a podcast like her favorite book of all time, To Marry an English Lord, by Gail MacColl and Carol Wallace, but couldn't find one. So we made one. In 2014 we had drinks with Carol Wallace. In 2015 this conversation was recorded and lived in a computer until now.
