Boats 2. Kind of.

Greetings, Comrades!

The author’s family, turns out, wasn’t happy about our show. They forbade me to use their matherials…so I brought another KGB spy story for you this time. And man…I HATE people’s personal memoires. Interviews are way easier to process into a script. But…at any rate, enjoy!

  1. I recognized the name Victor Suvarov and remember reading a book of his about the Soviet army in the 80’s or early 90’s.

  2. I could not finish “Spy and Traitor.” It both showed the elevations of human behaviour and the depravities and just outright evil (knowing right but doing the opposite anyway). Even those not totally implicated were choices borne out of a no-win situation, with people’s lives being squeezed like some commodity. The stories of the KGB informants from Svetlana Alexeivitch’s books are terrifying. When you say “having to come out from under this system” this resonates!

    This was better than your having to decipher the meandering reminisces of the boat story any day! Ha ha, no way the estate/license owners listen to your show! WTF?
