Greetings, Comrades! As we promised to Bob, here’s our episode on the postal service of the USSR. This was a huge subject and we had to cut some stuff out as this was already a long episode – but it’s chock full of interesting facts and stories, like a care package sent to some poor conscript in Vorkut or Khabarovsk. This episode made me realize that logistics are a nightmare and that folks who care about our mail are unsung heroes. And hey – if some of them will listen to this ep, while doing their delivieries, it’ll make me a tad bit happier. This one’s dedicated to you, postal workers! Enjoy!

Happiness is Mandatory!

  1. When all the Covid mess had started and no one really knew what to do with the mail, I had ordered something from the Russian Federation. The Covid delays began and when I looked at various statements about deliveries, Russian Post was the only one with the statement that any losses incurred was “an act of God.” I did get my package but I had begun to wonder if I would ever see it.
