Gentleman Jack Historical Nightcap - Anniana - A Saga of Sapphic Ennui Part IV

Season 1, Ep. 7.68

Welcome back friends! We're so glad to see you've made it this far. In this 4th #HistoricalNightcap installment of the Anniana saga, we cover the two very tumultuous years of 1820-1821. As Anne's eyes wander, Mariana intensifies her pleas for fidelity, and poor Isabella never can say goodbye to Miss Lister or her kisses. We also cover the arrival of the infamous "complaint" and when Anne and Mariana decide to take the sacrament together. Join us with a drink of your choosing for this next chapter of the epic grubble melodrama, that is Anne Lister's life.

Like last time, we've included a detailed chapter list below with time stamps and dates for each entry referenced, and as always, we love to hear from you. Feel free to reach out and follow us on all the things for daily talk of grubbling @gentlemancrack @gentlemanjackcrack
