Fierce Females of History
Pancho Barnes: Having a good time
What do you get if you combine Jay Gatsby, Amelia Earhart, Sancho Panza, Indiana Jones, Lady Godiva and (maybe) a dash of Hugh Hefner?
Someone starting to resemble the whirlwind of a human being that was Pancho Barnes.
In this episode, we hear all about the legendary flyer who beat Earhart’s speed record, launched a pilot’s union, burnt through multiple inheritances and just generally had a good-ass time.
You’ll hear about Pancho’s terrifying start in flying, where she picked up her name and how she built what sounds like one of the coolest places ever: the Happy Bottom Riding Club.
We’re ready for take off. Strap in, babies.
