She's the sex worker who made it work. This week, we're looking at Madame Fahmy, born Marguerite Alibert, and her tragic youth, tumultuous relationships, and a murder that would rock the British royal family.
Plus, we question whether bigamy is a gateway drug, invent a new (and delicious-sounding) food, and discuss what serial killers and 1900s British lawyers have in common.
