Episode 122: Frances Howard with Elizabeth Fremantle

Welcome to Episode 122! This is the last of the off-season episodes and I’d like to thank Steph Stohrer for stepping up and helping to provide you with content for the last couple of months. The new season is going to be a bit different than what you’re used to, but you’ll still be getting all the same amazing content.

On this episode, Steph chats with critically acclaimed author, Elizabeth Fremantle. Elizabeth has published four Tudor and Elizabethan set novels which many you are likely familiar with…and, as we’ll learn today she has an announcement to make (which many of you may already know) regarding one of her books! Today, Elizabeth is here to discuss the ever scandalous Frances Howard. You’ll want to stick around to hear about this wonderfully noteworthy worthy figure in history that we seldom hear about.
