by Lauren Butterworth and Alicia Carter
Every fortnight, Lauren and Alicia – the two women behind the mic at Deviant Women – take a different rule-breaking woman from history, literature or pop culture, and tell her story.
They do a good job of finding women, real and imagined, who you mightn’t have heard of – or, even better, someone you have heard of, without knowing the whole story. Their featured women are drawn from across countries, centuries and cultures, with our co-hosts alternating whose turn it is to play storyteller, and who’s interjecting with questions and additional details.
With a theme song that’ll get stuck in your head and return whenever you yourself do something mildly ‘deviant’, this podcast will make you laugh – but it’ll also make you smarter and bolder.
