    Khabarovsk and Russian Sauna

    Greetings, Comrades! This is our take on the protests in Khabarovsk – and of course, their new governor, which is a candidate for “weirdest bills introduced in a parliament ever” award. It’s crazy. Also, don’t forget that we just published a new historical episode too – so, check it out, your feed should contain both!

    The Day Russia Wasn't

    The Day Russia Wasn't

    Greetings, comrades!
    So, that voting thing passed. I want to go back to Siberial colonisation. But I asked online, on socilal media, do you really NEED an episode on the utter amd complete nonsense that just happened…and the answer was “No, but we need You to tell us about it”. And I am telling you about the ultimate farce in election rigging that has ever happened. And continuation on the super antisemitic orthodox priest that took over a monastery. Because why not. Retrurning to reasonable episodes next week, I guess,

Calling all history/political folks!

With his podast, the Eastern Border, Kristap Andrejson brings a unique Latvian perspective to history, the USSR, and all things in between in the English language. Especially of interest is his excellent ability to bring into the discussion translated Latvian and Russian documents unknown in English circles. The views he brings from real life accounts in Latvia and elsewhere along the eastern border are valuable sources of insight. Support him if you can! And check out his other podcasts he's doing including The Lesser Bonapartes.
