LOS ANGELES—What with all the recent media attention to the "Women On 20s" campaign, which sought to replace Andrew Jackson's image on the twenty-dollar bill with a woman, and succeeded in just a matter of weeks—well, sort of: a famous woman from history will join Alexander Hamilton on the ten dollar bill—there's been a renewed interest in historical women, and who better to tell their stories with a sexy adult feminist twist than popular adult performers Ela Darling and Sovereign Syre?

Boss Bitches of History is a new series from Wisecrack, the producers of the funny, popular series Thug Notes, 8-Bit Philosophy and Earthling Cinema. The new comedic series is dedicated to celebrating emboldened women throughout the ages who bucked the system and boldly faced the sexist hegemony of their time. The show is created, written and hosted by Sovereign Syre and Ela Darling, two entertainers whom showrunner Jared Bauer says "defy contemporary standards of American intellectualism and feminism."

Of course they do. Darling, a self-described "nerdfighter," avid reader and partner in VRTube.xxx, the latest entrant in the growing adult VR market, has both a bachelor’s degree in forensic psychology and a master’s degree in library science focusing in youth literature and services, while Syre studied sociology in college, hosts the Observations with Sovereign Syre podcast on JulilandRadio.com, and has written extensively for such outlets as xoJane, Huffington Post, GQ Italy and others.

"As soon as I saw Thug Notes, met Jared and we started developing a show, I knew this was going to be an awesome collaboration," said Syre. "I’ve always wanted to do something with history, and the show is the perfect outlet. Working with Wisecrack is awesome. These guys get it."

"I’m super stoked about the launch of Boss Bitches of History," Darling added. "And more than anything I’m excited to get to collaborate with Sov, who I’ve known for years. Working with the guys at Wisecrack has been awesome from the start. They’re super smart, and above all, crazy enough to pursue a project like this."

Wisecrack is a Los Angeles-based media collective run by comedians, academics, filmmakers and artists which explores great topics in ways that make them fun, engaging and delightful. They combine clever, provocative, unconventional storytelling with academic precision and compelling insights, with the intention of promoting critical thinking to the YouTube generation.

The show will launch with two episodes. The first will explore Cleopatra, the last great pharaoh to rule Egypt, and the second will focus on Marie-Josèph dite Angélique, the rebellious Portuguese slave who burned down half of Montreal in revenge for her mistreatment. New episodes of Boss Bitches of History will air bi-monthly and will be found here.
