42. QUEEN: Nellie Bly
Sometimes, we just want to talk about badass women. Today’s episode covers one of those, and introduces a new category of stories—the QUEENS. Nellie Bly was a journalist, businesswoman, author, and charity worker. She introduced a new kind of investigative journalism, working undercover to expose the plights of people who were often ignored. We freaking love her. If you’re looking for a story that shows just how amazing a woman can be (especially a turn-of-the-century woman), this is it. We hope you’re as crazy about her as we are.
