Episode 7

The final days of the Romanov Dynasty is the culmination of centuries of political, social, and civil upheaval. This is a story that has spawned books, movies, cartoons, conspiracy theories, and of course, podcasts. Exactly 100 years after the massacre, interest in what happened that fateful night has not waned, and has even, perhaps, intensified. A story of poverty, resistance, assassinations, mysticism, and so much more - this is a tale that has, and will continue to be, told for generations.

*EDIT/Correction: At one point in the podcast I refer to nine lives being lost. The actual number was eleven.
