Knallbra om tsarer og diktatorer

Denne podcasten konsentrerer seg om den sammenhengende rekken av sorg og elendighet som har vært statsledere i Russland. Man minnes Hans Wilhelm Steinfelds ord: "Russland har vært usedvanlig uheldig med sine ledere". Jeg har bare kommet til Peter den Store, men det er masse goodies her om Ivan den Grusomme, Stalin og andre sjarmtroll, fortalt på engasjerende måte. Veldig bra for dem som er nysgjerrige på hvorfor Russland er blitt som det er blitt.
