    MIR and the Last Soviet Citizen, pt.1

    Greetings Comrades!
    Sadly, this ep, and the next one, were pulled out from my in case of emergency, break glass box, and recorded on a very non-suitable equipment. You’ll hear on the show, but I hope that you’ll enjoy this story about one of the actually pretty neat and good things the Soviets did. The late space station “Mir”. Enjoy!
