Greetings, Comrades! We’re busy, recording episodes about Soviet everyday life, however this time, we bring you Michael from the amazing The Red Line podcast to discuss the peculiarities of post-soviet politics. It’s complicated, messy and leaves you slightly depressed with more questions than answers. Just the way we enjoy it here. We dragged out Michael and threatened him with KGB so that he’d get a bit of relaxed conversation, instead of the very technical expertise he usually does on his show, and I think it ended up really well.
Oh, and a quote from him that I promised to put in the show notes:
“First law of journalism: The more bullet holes in your hotel, the better and cheaper the food!” /Michael
