We interview experts and weave vivid, nuanced biographies of women you’ve never heard of (but should have). Fascinating and funny, thought-provoking and thoughtful. New episodes biweekly Wednesdays.
When Alice Roosevelt’s father became President of the United States, her family became the center of attention for the whole country (and the world) – and that was just the way Alice liked it. Whether smoking on the White House roof or wearing her pet snake Emily Spinach as a necklace to Congressional Balls, Alice scandalized her parents and delighted the nation – but that was just the beginning.
Olivia interviews Shelley Fraser Mickle, author of the new book White House Wild Child.
Music for this episode provided by Amanda Setlik Wilson, Aaron Kenny, The New Hot 5, Peak Duo, Victor Dance Orchestra, Esther Abrami, The Melody Weavers and the US Marine Corps Band.
