Episode 5: The "Woman" Paleontologist

Mary Anning is a 19th century paleontologist responsible for the discovery of Dino-Age creatures such as ichthyosaurs, pleisosaurs, and pterosaurs. She hung out with and provided invaluable fossil specimens to classic White Dude Scientists like Georges Cuvier & Richard Owen, but despite her discoveries, Mary Anning didn't get sh*t. Meaghan Emery-Wetherell and Amy Atwater consider themselves her revenge - by running the super funny, super NSFW blog Mary Anning's Revenge.
