Hard to Believe #019 – Emmy Nominee Liza Richardson 

Long admired in the television and movie world, Liza Richardson developed a loyal fan following when she served as the music supervisor for The Leftovers, and this year she was nominated for an Emmy for her work on Watchmen. Joey Lewandowski – whose favorite show of all time is The Leftovers – joins John for the first time since our debut episode to talk to Liza about her work, her life, and how she helped make The Leftovers what Joey calls “the best show about religion that’s not about religion” ever.

#2.7 – Grigori Rasputin and Anastasia Romanov – Part Two of "Disinformation" Hard to Believe – A Podcast About Belief

At the dawn of the 20th century, Russia was in the midst of a political wildfire, and the Tsarist regime was under threat like never before. Enter Tsar Nicholas II, Russia's last monarch, and a man uniquely and catastrophically unfit for the job. Compounding his problems, he and his wife struggled to produce a son to serve as heir. When they finally did, they soon discovered he was a hemophiliac, his life and health constantly under threat. The inevitable demise of the family and the ruling regime would be remembered less for the complicated real-life history that led to it and more for the conspiracy theories, rumors, and active disinformation campaigns centered around two individuals – the family's resident holy man, Grigori Rasputin, and the youngest Romanov daughter, Anastasia. John once again welcomes Mike Manzi and Jess Collins to discuss these two stories, and how the diverse cast of pretenders claiming to be the Romanov children – most notably the notorious Anna Anderson – may well have had their roots in the Soviet Union's first successful exercise in politically useful disinformation.
