Craig talks with author Elizabeth Lev about her biography of Countess Caterina Riario Sforza de Medici entitled "The Tigress of Forli". She was a controversial figure: celebrated and admired, but also reviled and feared. The New York Times recently highlighted the book in their article, "Real Housewife of the Renaissance", and today Craig will discuss the salacious life and times of the countess with the author.
