S2E3: Language or The Kiss | Agatha and Archie Christie & Nora Ephron and Carl Bernstein

Join us for an exploration of the failed romances that shaped - but certainly didn't break - two pioneering women writers. First, Alicia brings us an enduring mystery from the life of the mother of the genre, Agatha Christie. On Friday, December 3, 1926, the 36-year-old author disappeared without a trace, only be found 11 days later safe and sound in a hotel in Harrogate. What happened during this period has been a point of speculation for nearly a century, and Alicia thinks she's got all the tea for this one.

Then, Stacie brings us closer to current events with the unfortunate tale of the celebrated marriage of writers Nora Ephron and Carl Bernstein. When they wed in 1976, they were considered a power couple. Bernstein had recently been half of the dynamic duo who took down a president, and Ephron was a columnist for Esquire magazine who was reinventing the form for women. They were the life of party in DC and New York, until Bernstein fell for the wife of a foreign ambassador. From this catastrophe, Ephron rebuilt herself and her career, and found lasting greatness.
