    Wondry Presents Guru: The Dark Side of Enlightenment

    When we face challenges in life, we seek answers from people we believe can help us. When tragedy strikes an exclusive retreat with a self-help superstar, many people are left to wonder: how far is too far? James Arthur Ray was an Oprah-endorsed self-help teacher who achieved fame, fortune, and influence. But friends and family members of his followers questioned his unorthodox methods, and tried to stop him. From Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John,” “Dr. Death,” and “The Shrink Next Door,” comes a story about the dark side of enlightenment. Hosted by journalist Matt Stroud.

    Lenin and Trotsky - Stalin’s Revenge | 6

    Lenin and Trotsky - Stalin’s Revenge | 6

    It’s 1920 and in Russia, public opposition to Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky’s communist government is spreading. Oppression, censorship and – above all – famine is stirring up discontent. Even those who once stood ready to fight to bring the communists to power now want them gone. 

    But even as the duo face down the latest threats to their rule, their alliance is starting to fray. Lenin and the rest of the party are growing frustrated with Trotsky’s unwillingness to tow the party line. And that’s going to give Joseph Stalin the chance he needs to prise the two men apart and clear the path for his own rise to power.

    Lenin and Trotsky - War Is Peace | 5

    Lenin and Trotsky - War Is Peace | 5

    It’s 1918 and Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky’s new socialist government is under threat. Generals loyal to the tsar are plotting, forming armies to overthrow the Bolsheviks. The shadow of famine is falling across the nation as food shortages grow. Rival socialist groups are still active and opposed to Lenin and Trotsky’s regime. And to the west the Russian army manning the World War I battlefront is disintegrating fast. The world’s first Marxist regime is fragile, and it’s up to Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky to see off the threats to its existence.

    But now that they’ve taken power, Lenin and Trotsky’s old differences are starting to resurface just when they need to be more united than ever.

Good stuff!

Not a Lakers fan, nor a Kobe or Shaw fan, but this series was so well told, that I’m looking forward to the next series. Of course, Wondery’s quality is seen in the sound design and production.

Weird re-enactments

The host’s re-enactments of Lenin and trotsky are pure silliness. I’m sure the podcast is good since there are so many positive ratings, but I was totally distracted when she started pretending she was each of them in a conversation. Ruined it for me.

More, please!

I really enjoy this show. Hoping there’s more to come.
