The Anastasia Myth Christmas Special

Sentimental Garbage

21-12-2023 • 1 hr 38 mins

It's been the Roman Empire for all tween girls for over 100 years, so for this year we investigate: what is it about the Anastasia myth that we just can't let go of? Caroline and Ella attempt to examine the real story versus the many false ones that grew around it, touching on Anna Anderson, the Romanovs, the emergence of new media in 1918 vs now, the 1956 movie starring Ingrid Bergman and the 1997 Don Bluth cartoon.



This is not a history podcast and we don't use a script so please bear in mind that we play fast and loose with dates and places. If you want a more thorough and historically accurate enquiry into this story, we recommend:
