Katie and Sarah did a short episode on Zenobia way back in 2010, but we wanted to take a closer look at her rule of Palmyra and her relationship with Rome. So, while some of this may sound somewhat familiar to long-time listeners, we're taking a deeper look at this first-century ruler. During her lifetime, she expanded the borders of Palmyra and minted her own money - but eventually, the tide turned against her.

Our listener mail is about our Haunted Mansion podcast (part one and part two) from Jessie and Jeff.

For more knowledge: Were ancient Egyptians the first feminists?
