Strong Water: The Life and Execution of Bathsheba Spooner

Bathsheba Spooner’s claim to fame is being the first woman in the colonies to be hung by an American government, rather than the British Crown. That’s a helluva way to get famous.

This week’s doodle by me! Patreon Sponsors at the “Right Some Good” level of $7 a month also get to clap their eyes on a doodle of a rather unfortunate courtroom incident with a sheep, as part of our mini-episode on Puritan Crime and Punishment. You can support us here.

Listen to the full episode here. 

Or hey – subscribe! You’ll get every episode as I churn them out.


We have a variety of rewards for Patreon sponsors, and for sponsors at the Right Some Good level (just $7 a month!) we offer access to exclusive mini episodes!
