S7E5: Hollaback Girl | Sarah Palin and Todd Palin & Josephine Baker

This week, we have a pair of women trailblazers, as well as two often-requested subjects. First up, Stacie has the marriage and divorce of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her now ex-husband, Todd Palin. We’re not sure why they split, but we take a second look at some of how she was treated and check in on the troubled adulthoods of some of the next generation of Palins. Then, Alicia has the incredible-but-true story of entertainment legend Josephine Baker, a woman who did every famous person cliche first, while also spending World War II as a spy coordinating activities for the French Resistance. Oh, does your favorite star not do that?
