Heraean Games - Leah’s 1 Cool Olympic Thing

Leah wraps up Olympic month by taking us back in time to 776 B.C. to the time of the Heraean Game (AKA Girl Olympics) where running with a boob out what a challenge! Leah also brings up loopholes so the ladies play with the oil-drenched guys and then talks about how all the nakedness was ruined and the party was cancelled for 1500 years. She gets us up to speed on when women could join the Olympics whether they knew they were competing or not. Totally NSFW but funny episode.
