With the holiday season comes nostalgia - so today's episode takes a deep dive into Sarah's childhood favorite book series, The Song of the Lioness quartet by Tamora Pierce (1983-1988). Join Sarah and guest MJ as we get into gender roles, representations of nonwestern cultures in fantasy, menstruation and birth control, and the real history of gender fluidity and women dressing as men in the Middle Ages.
