Deviant Women Podcast
About This Show
We are Alicia and Lauren, the hosts of Deviant Women. Every fortnight we will discuss a different ‘deviant’ woman from history, fiction, mythology and the contemporary world: those who aren’t afraid to break the rules, to subvert the system, to explore, to seek and to challenge the status quo. We’re psyched you want to join us as we indulge ourselves in our passion.

#16 Lizzie O'Dea
In the humid tropics of 1920s Townsville, Lizzy O’Dea became infamous in the local tabloids for shooting her rival. As the press continued to sensationalise her adventures, notoriety for her petty theft and sexual exploits grew. Join us as we chat with author Ariella Van Luyn, whose novel Treading Air follows Lizzy from bookie’s daughter in Brisbane to working girl at the Causeway Hotel, about researching the life of one of history’s hidden women, and why such stories continue to be relevant to us today.
You can find out more about how to get your hands on a copy of Treading Air at ariellavanluyn.com.
