The Highwaywoman Special (Reprise)

The Lesbian Historic Motif Podcast - Episode 136 with Heather Rose Jones

This is a reprise of my first “fifth week special” episode, when I have to come up with something outside my 4-topic rotation. Today we have a multi-media look at female highwaymen in history, song, and story, including five lesbian highwaywoman romances.

In this episode we talk about:

  • The historic era of the highwaymen
  • Ballads featuring female highwaymen (you get to hear me sing!)
  • Women in history who went “on the pad” as they say, or who were rumored to have done so
  • The most popular formula for lesbian highwaywoman novels
  • Five lesbian highwaywoman romances, plus one bonus highway robbery incident

The various persons and works discussed or presented in this podcast (in order of appearance) are as follows. Some historic references may apply to more than one person.

Novels with Highwaywoman Romances
