Marjory Stoneman Douglas was a writer, activist, and accidental conservationist. She was already heading toward middle age, having worked as a journalist and for the Navy and the Red Cross, by the time she discovered the Florida Everglades. Once it became clear to her that Florida was on the verge of destroying the unique and incredible ecosystem that only existed in the Sunshine State, she spent the rest of her long life writing about and working toward utter preservation of the Florida Everglades. She lived to see the Everglades become completely protected thanks in large part to her work, and advocated for them until her death at 108. Good witch? We think so!

Episode 61, witches! Today, @hannahfergesen and @msdeannaelise want you to know all about Queen Liliʻuokalani of Hawai’i. She was the first queen to rule Hawai’i alone - she also happened to be Hawaii's last monarch before the US stole the country from the Native Hawaiians in a violent and illegal coup, and annexed it as a territory and later state of the US. She was a songwriter and a pacifist — and though she did not have much time on the throne, she was and continues to be beloved by her people, who were always her first and main concern. • • #goodwitches #badbitches #gwbb #podcast #womenwhopodcast #feminist #feminism #history #herstory #ushistory #hawaii #hawaiian #kingdomofhawaii #asianamericanheritagemonth #asianpacificamericanheritagemonth #wcw #witchywednesday Episode 59, witches! Today, @hannahfergesen and @msdeannaelise discuss the incredible and often frustrating life & career of Hollywood’s first bonafide Chinese American star: the mesmerizing Anna May Wong! A 3rd generation American born and raised in Los Angeles, she was ready to perform at an early age — and even got her first job in an Alla Nazimova (of episode 18!) film. Sadly, she was consistently pigeonholed into playing stereotypical roles that lacked full dimension, and would often be passed over for Asian leads when the male lead was whitewashed (the Hays Code wouldn’t allow it SIGH). She travelled the globe in search of roles that satisfied her, and was adored in both Europe and China (though initially China found her to be “too American”!). This trailblazer was the first Asian American actress to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (the second was JUST given to Lucy Liu this month!). We absolutely adore her — hear more about her, wherever you get your podcasts! • • #goodwitches #badbitches #gwbb #podcast #womenwhopodcast #feminist #feminism #history #herstory #hollywood #oldhollywood #actor #actress #chineseamerican #annamaywong #asian #asianamerican #asianpacificamericanheritagemonth #wcw #witchywednesday #goldenageofhollywood Hey #gwbbpodcast Patrons!
