Greetings, Comrades! Due to editing issues, we lagged behind with this episode, but here it is. A semi-serious interview with Jonathan Waterlow PhD, author of the newly-published book “It’s only a joke, comrade!” – a book about Soviet political jokes during Stalin’s era in the 30’s. Semi-serious, because we talked about the cultural impact of jokes and…well, Stalin himself, this episode consists of the largest quantity of jokes of all of our episodes. I also managed to look like a worried amateur at times, but as I do that now and then, it should be ok. We also have a contest in the end.
Anyhow, here’s the book cover, and go follow Jon everywhere, listen to his philosophy podcast and get the book! Oh, and enjoy the episode!
