Strange Women. Pop culturally speaking, they truly are the spice of life. But what qualifies a performer or character as strange? And what is it about these women that provoke such strong responses in us? Joining us to discuss all this and more are two experts in the field. Twin sisters Tonya Hurley and Tracy Hurley Martin are the hosts of the Stories of Strange Women Podcast, where they’ve interviewed everyone from Elvira to Kate Pierson of the B-52s to Lydia Lunch to Parker Posey. And they are also quite accomplished Strange Women in their own rights. Tonya is the New York Times bestselling author of the Ghostgirl young adult book series and the Blessed trilogy. And Tracy was the co-founder of Brooklyn’s incredible Morbid Anatomy Museum. On this episode, we talk about the all the strange women who inspired us to become the weirdoes we are today!
