Episode 12 – Zelda Fitzgerald: More than Gatsby’s Daisy

Content Warning: This episode of Great Woman Theory contains mentions of suicide, electroshock therapy, and domestic abuse.

In this episode of Great Woman Theory, our hosts discuss the outrageous and stereotype-shattering life of Zelda Fitzgerald, writer, dancer, and socialite. She may have been the inspiration for F Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel The Great Gatsby, but Zelda was far more than a muse. From the highs of being a New York celebrity, to the lows of her confinement to a psychiatric hospital, Zelda’s life was famously turbulent, and 100% her own. Come dive into a tale of drunken antics, plagiarism, and glorious rage against the patriarchy.
