The Story of Gertrude

Polymath. Pope Approved Female Composer. Star of Flipping Convents with Hildy. If you haven’t guessed, we’re talking about the one and only Hildegard von Bingen, the original Badass Woman. And you thought we were done with that series. Fooled you!  We could talk about all this woman’s accomplishments, but you should listen to the episode. Let me just say that this woman had a MINOR PLANET named after her. So you know she’s amazing.
