Boss Bitches of History promo

Porn stars teaching feminist history is everything the Internet has been missing.

Boss Bitches of History, the newest educational, entertaining, and slightly NSFW show from Wisecrack, is ready to teach the world just how important female contribution is to society, and it’s doing so in the most boss way possible.

The show’s two hosts, Sovereign Syre and Ela Darling, are both adult performers and writers with a passion for history. Darling holds a master’s degree in library science from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and is a virtual reality entrepreneur in the adult space. Syre has an master’s of fine arts in creative writing and a background in sociology.

The series kicks off with two videos: one focused on Marie-Josèphe dite Angélique, a slave who set half of Montreal on fire to protest her owner selling her to an island plantation in the 1700s, and one that showcases a more widely known “boss bitch,” Cleopatra. The clips feature Darling and Syre explaining the historical context interspersed with modern references to keep even the most history-averse on the edge of his or her seat.

“As soon as I saw Thug Notes, met Jared [Bauer] and we started developing a show, I knew this was going to be an awesome collaboration,” Syre said via press release. “I’ve always wanted to do something with history, and the show is the perfect outlet.”

The show joins Wisecrack’s slate of educational and entertaining series like Thug Notes and Earthling Cinema. New episodes will air bimonthly.
