Everybody ready for a break from our fraught political moment? Pour yourself a drink, sit back and let Dan Savage and historian Gareth Russell take you back to a simpler age where women got beheaded for having premarital sex. That’s right! It’s Henry the VIII, baby! Gareth Russell’s book Young and Damned and Fair: The Life of Catherine Howard, Fifth Wife of King Henry VIII got Dan Savage’s monarchist juices a flowin’ and their conversation is a bit of a deep dive into royal history. And don’t worry, there’s sex! Mr. Russell was adept at analyzing the erotic fear behind cuckolding as well what our brains do during masturbation. Enjoy.
