Fantastic and Informative

It brings an insight and knowledge that can't be learned in any text book!

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.

Growing up in one the Soviet satelite state Czechoslovakia in 50's and serving in the armed forces in 60's, I experienced everything this podcaster is talking about - amazingly accurate description of the life under the communist rule - I will share the Radio Yerevan joke - question from the listener - can a soviet public bathrooms cleaning woman afford to buy Volga (soviet made luxury car) Armenian radio answer - yeas she can, but what the hell she is going to do with all that water?
