Prison culture 101


In this episode, I tried to make a basic overview of the post-Soviet prison culture, and how Putin relates to it and why you can’t really be an expert of Russia if you don’t understand it. It ended up being very long, chaotic and…well, I hope, entertaining. Cat decided to go utterly crazy today, and trying to compress a subject as deep and complex as this into a single episode also wasn’t optimal. But hey, this isn’t a news episode, this is just an in-between extra, so I don’t really feel that bad about it.

Also, links to my previous, more in-depth prison culture episodes.
Part 1 –

On apple podcasts, because the link on my homepage does not work, probably because of the cyberattacks the page experienced in 2020. Will try to get a homepage link working soon as well.

Part 2 –
Because again, I’m not sure if the homepage will work. I hadn’t realized how old these episodes actually were.

News coming out tomorrow. Happiness is mandatory!

  1. I DO NOT want to log into Spotify, Acast OR Apple Podcasts just to download the two linked episodes. Is there a way I can get them WITHOUT being forced to do that? Also, is there any way that you or your web management team can fix the bad links here on The Eastern Border? Finally, WHY IN GOD’S NAME ARE THESE NOT ON YOUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL OR ANYWHERE ELSE?! This is driving me INSANE! Please help with this! 🙁

    • Yeah, that figures. I guess three years isn’t quite long enough, given what you go through constantly. Glad to see you back after the passing of your dad. Again, my condolences extend to you and yours for your losses. It’s never easy dealing with the passing of loved ones.
