The are few 20th century figures as perplexing as Josef Stalin. Historians widely agree that Stalin was responsible for the deaths of some 20 million human beings. Despite that his legacy has remained the topic of serious debate. This is because the history of his regime was actively distorted by both Stalin himself and his many enemies. Stalin tried to make himself myth. His enemies tried to show that he was monster. Who was he really? Tune in and find out how pools of urine, webbed toes, and unpaid library fines all play a role in the story.

Right off the bat off Our Fake History's absolutely brilliant Blavatsky series, I couldn't wait to dig into some of communist history! Most of the stuff I heard about Stalin's early life was new information, so I really enjoyed this episode. I even watched the film The Death of Stalin that the host recommends in the early minutes of this episode, and loved it! Really put the series in context too.
