Kate’s Selective Memory features the inimitable Wu Zetian, the one and only female Emperor of China. Hey, try not to be related to her because she is ruthless as hell and WILL kill her family members if necessary. Jen talks about the Great Molasses Flood of 1919 in Boston, which sounds like the slowest and most terrifying way to go. Your hosts then go on a bit of a tangent discussing which Hollywood actors should be in a movie about this insane incident.
For their oshituaries, Kate goes over the ridiculous death of Pythagorus. Jen lists the bizarre ways that kids died during the Tudor era. Apparently people were just leaving knives friggin everywhere.
