I listened to this in one straight shot - totally entertaining and also interesting about the history and culture of Vice in its context. The host is great at bringing out the contradictions in Slava’s story without being overly dramatic. I hope she hosts more podcasts in future.
I’m glad I didn’t read the reviews until after I listened because I thought this was REALLY good. As to some of the negative comments, yes, the main character is delusional and a complete liar but that doesn’t mean Kasia believes him and even points that out on a regular basis. Yes, Vice was a complete train wreck in it’s early days and Kasia once applied there but I don’t see the bias in the story and I think it was in integral part of what happened. The story was entertaining and well presented and interviews were done very well. Overall, I enjoyed this as much as some of my favorites.
Not bad, and screw Slava
Came to this podcast from Thunder Bay, and have to say I really enjoyed this. It was well edited and narrated, entertaining, and a good story about an idiot who thankfully got 9 years.
