Informative and funny

Being Russian and moving to the USA at a young age, I am familiar with the things they discuss but still learn some new things! I also love getting the Americans reactions on things 😆

Great podcast

A couple Americans talking to a Russian about her experiences growing up over there. Really interesting and amusing. There’s some crazy stories, like cooking rotten potatoes in a tire fire. It’s a great casual listen, even if you’re not that interested in Russia. Check it out!

Interesting and authentic, a must listen for anyone who wants to gain a nuanced perspective of the real Russia.
