#13 History Hack: Victorian Freak Shows

Alex and Alina are joined by rising history star John Woolf to talk all about his book The Wonders and the Victorian Freak Show. Equally heartbreaking as it is fun, we learn about performers through history, the lives they led, and why even if The Greatest Showman was actually a git, Hugh Jackman is still gorgeous.
