In this episode, Liz and Nicole sheepishly laugh at stupid ways to die during the Renaissance. Wrestling, harvest diapers, and bacon all factor in.

In this episode, Liz and Nicole delve into the London criminal underworld to talk about Mary Frith, aka Moll Cutpurse, unapologetic thief, burglar, fence, and crossdresser. Did we mention she's a woman? Also, Liz mis-reads the year of her death, which was ACTUALLY 1659. rudetudors.com
