Ancient History Fangirl: Locusta the Poisoner

Hey, y'all! We are on summer break, so we asked our dear friends at Ancient History Fangirl to hook us up with a great episode for your listening pleasure. And they did not disappoint.

Ancient Rome was full of rich, ambitious social climbers in a cutthroat political environment—people who had enemies to get rid of, and deep pockets to pay for the service.

Poison assassins were in high demand—and one of the most notorious was a woman named Locusta the Poisoner. Learn her story--and get a crash course on poison and poisonings in the ancient world.
