This week, we get up close and personal with Henry VIII’s sister, and deep dive into a very trashy listener request! Alicia has the three marriages of Margaret Tudor: daughter of Henry VII, one-time Queen of Scotland, legitimate Catholic divorcee, and mother of Scotland’s James V. Margaret’s story scandalized Christendom, at least until her brother lost his freaking mind.
Speaking of dudes losing their minds, Stacie has the very not-funny story of Amber Heard and Johnny Depp. Their brief marriage ended in 2016 in a flurry of monstrous abuse allegations against Johnny Depp, and their continuing legal feud has only made the story uglier. Honestly, we’re a little worried about everyone in this story.
