Episode 56 - Banner O'Brien by Linda Lael Miller

Banner O'Brien is the worst possible lady doctor in 19th century Washington State, which I guess also makes her the best lady doctor around (but no, she is not good at this doctoring thing.)  Adam Corbin is the biggest assholes in 19th century Washington State and he does have plenty of competition.  They yell.  They slap.  They do it, a lot.  They keep truly amazing secrets from each other.  It's a ride! This book has some pretty serious content warnings - a pretty awful abusive relationship in the past, lots of slapping, disciplinary spanking, racist language and portrayals of racist attitudes towards indigenous and Asian people (the book doesn't condone it but does use some ill-considered words.)  Family gaslighting!  Secret leprosy!  (Yes I did say secret leprosy, keep up.)  It's got a lot going on, but it's one of those "turned up to 11" books where none of this seems particularly realistic.

Good news - we're doing transcripts!

We here at Bodice Tipplers want everybody to be able to enjoy our podcast!  To that end, we've started working on episode transcripts.  You can view the first one here, for Shadow of the Lynx.  They'll be Google Docs linked on each episode page as they become available.

Unfortunately, because we do long podcasts in a conversational format, transcripts are really time consuming to produce.  We'd love to put up one for each episode on the day it releases, but it's just not possible to do that and keep up a reasonable production schedule.  So what we'll do instead is try to put up a transcript of the first few minutes as a teaser when we go live with an episode and then when we can finally get a full transcript up, we'll let you know on social media that you can go back to the episode page and find the whole thing.

This is new for us, so if you have feedback please let us know how we can do better - you can e-mail us at bodicetipplers@gmail.com or interact with us on Facebook or Twitter.
