History: The Shequel #1 March 1, 2020

Lil’ Debbie Sampson, an indentured child servant who taped down her boobs, shoved her hair under a hat and joined the Revolutionary War to fight the British. A brilliant woman who took advantage of a stupid time to pursue her dreams of being the first American female soldier. She’s the subject this episode, hosted by Erin Gibson and Cool Teen, Ciara. We end the episode with words from female veterans about the importance of the Deborah Sampson Act.
