You know we had to do it to ya eventually. This week Aria Salan and Mickey Flykick discuss the Romanov's; Russia's longest ruling dynasty spanning from the 1600's to the 1920's. We look at the beginning of the empire that ended with one of the most important revolutions in history.
This week we explored the first of the Romanovs including a 16 year old boy who didn't want to be Tsar, The Quietist Tsar, a scholar named Feodore III who was disabled as a baby then crushed in a horse riding accident and we get into the traumatic and boaty childhood of Peter the Great.
This week Aria Salan and Mickey Flykick are joined by comedian Jacob Lingard to learn about the rich people who shy from the spotlight. Authors, Musicians and others are all discussed as well as the reasons why and how these people reportedly lived. It's pretty yucky, comrades.

From Ancient Egyptian beginning, fox testivles in the middle age to the eventual murder of Bar Soap at the hands of those god damned Millenlials. But like any good Murder story there's a twist in the tale.
