History is full of stories we think we know. They are old and dark, but time has robbed us of perspective and clarity. They've become obscured and misunderstood. Which is why this series exists: to dig deep and shed light on some of history’s darkest moments. To help us better understand where we’ve come from. To make it Unobscured. Each season pairs narrative storytelling from Aaron Mahnke, creator of the hit podcast Lore, with prominent historian interviews. Season Four: Grigori Rasputin

Ann Braude interviews

Listening to Ann Braude is absolutely enlightening. It’s like getting an entire college course through Podcasts. The depth and breath of her knowledge in her field is astounding and I enjoyed every minute of listening to her. Ann ought to have her own podcast. Her voice is very agreeable-she has such a mellow tone of voice that really relaxed me while educating me about the Spiritualist movement in America.
