Episode 43: Grigori Rasputin

Inspiring myth, legend, and a Disney movie, Grigori Rasputin was, and is today, an anomaly. Having the eyes of lunatic, the beard of a wizard, and the attire of a peasant, Rasputin used his religious affiliation, mysticism, and above all else, his charm to befriend nearly every man and swoon the panties off nearly every woman. The latter would ultimately get him in trouble and lead to a nearly failed assassination attempt involving cyanide, stab wounds, multiple gunshots, and drowning. This week we are joined by expert Amber Black to talk about the history of Rasputin and the mysteries that surround his life.
