    Greetings, Comrades!
    Sorry for the ep, being so late, ran into a lot of issues, like my health and my cat, literally eating my mic cable. Oh, and when I got back home, turns out, I had left my USB flash with my script, and the book about the ship in the place I stayed at. Just…winter wonderland Latvia. At any rate, thankfully there’s plenty of news in Russia to heep everyone entertained. Enjoy! For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    Word Salad

    Greetings, Comrades!
    I did what I had promised on social media, and translated the weirdest response to a journalist question that I had ever heard. I also look at a recently dead, ultra-conservative priest who had said that Stalin did the work of God, that female circumsision is a good thing and called for a physical purge of Russia’s internal enemies. Oh, and four CEO’s of Belarus’s sugar factories have been arrested in suspicion of a plot. This…this is a strange one.

    Greetings, Comrades! I managed to do a really dumb thing and fumble into a sewer hole, due to a hard-to-notice half-closed sewer lid and hurt my leg real bad. So, I’m talking about all the books that I’ve received and am reading now, with a rant about WW2 tossed in between. Some of those books you should even buy. I don’t know, I’m in pain and my head isn’t exactly working. Enjoy! For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    Greetings, Comrades!
    This time, we take a deep dive inside the constitutional changes, just proposed by president Putin – what they mean, why are they there, and what will the fall guy Medvedev do now. Enjoy! And...if you can, please support us in Patreon or donate via Paypal, we're running behind things now. But doing our best to make the best shows that we can.

    Belarus

    Greetings, Comrades! Here's our new episode for you! It's about a country sligthly to the south east of ours, that will probably cease to exist sometime next year. 
    And also some info:
    1. There's going to be a special new year's ep for Patrons later today.
    2. Audio on this one was pretty inconsistent, because I don't even know what happened with my recording setup, so we're working on it. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
