Meet Tamara Samsonova, the Real-Life Baby Yaga
Show Notes

One of the scariest books that I ever read was a children’s book named “Bony-Legs” by Joanna Cole.  I remember that I couldn’t sleep for a couple of days because I was afraid that the witch Baba Yaga would come after me.  It scared me because she would eat children and then use their bones to make the fence surrounding her home that stands on chicken legs. Even now, I shudder thinking about Baba Yaga.  It was fitting that was the name given to the best assassin in movies.  “John Wick.” What’s even scarier than John Wick or the witch in Bony-Legs is knowing that “Baba Yaga” is the name given to a real person. Meet Tamara Samsonova, the Real-Life Baby Yaga.
