Man of Steel 2 – Stalin and Special

Greetings, Comrades!

This is our next Stalin episode AND our anniversary episode. And it’s not quite awesome, as I’m suffering from a food poisoning now. But it’s pretty good still. However, there are a few things I’d like to say.Firstly, thank you for being here. Secondly…well…this is going to get explicit: People send me death threats. People want to beat me up. People used to tell me that I’ll never finish college, because I’m obviously too stupid and not “organised enough” – I’ve been dumped, because they thought I’d never achieve anything and that I’m just “dumb and base” and that I’d never be worthy of them. Well, look at where we are after two years. And if you mistake being rude sometimes for being dumb, that’s your own problem. I’ve never been a conformist, never tried to be liked by anyone just because it looks good, just because it’s the popular, nice thing to say. And now…now I’m here. And you’re here. And I thank you for that. And together, we can say surely to the Putin’s agents and the arrogant stuck-up people, and the people who think I’m weird, because I actually talk with US people – The Eastern Border shall live on. Happiness is Mandatory! I love you all!

  1. Happy belated 2nd anniversary to The Eastern Border! Sorry it too me so long to get to this episode, busy summer. I’ve enjoyed watching you grow as a podcaster, and appreciate all the hard work that goes into each episode. Especially when you dig up interesting finds from the library archives or even your Dad’s collection.

    You mention how this is a unique podcast for the region, one of the few from the Eastern Border. If possible I would like to hear some more collaboration episodes where you interview other journalists like yourself from the Baltic region (Estonia, Lithuania, Belarus, etc.) I would love to hear if those regions had similar or different experiences during this era. Or maybe even Poland which I heard was treated somewhat differently from other Eastern Border states during the Soviet era. Unfortunately I don’t have any contacts from those regions to pass on to you. But I wanted to pass on the suggestion in case it’s of interest to you.
