Fun, Funny, and Knowledgable!

This podcast is always a delight to listen to. Ally and his guests have thoughtful, interesting opinions on the films they cover, and I always learn something unexpected about Russian culture and/or history. This podcast has also introduced me to a number of films that I might not have been aware of or thought to watch - but that turned out to be fantastic! Looking forward to many more episodes.

Поехали!

This show is truly a gem — it consistently hits that difficult balance between warmth and intellectual engagement. Before the film discussion, Ally briefly interviews the guest, and this usually goes in interesting, unexpected directions, like a review of a more recent film or a discussion of expat life in St. Petersburg. I really appreciate the extensive Soviet coverage, and I hope this show has a very long life, indeed. Keep it up!

I Love This Podcast!

This is an engaging and insightful podcast about Russian and Soviet films or films with a connection to Russia. It's a pleasure to listen to Ally and his guests talk about the films, and often Ally provides additional context due to his background as someone who has lived in Russia. Because of this podcast, my list of films to watch has grown exponentially, but I look forward to watching more Russian films!
