    Khabarovsk and Russian Sauna

    Greetings, Comrades! This is our take on the protests in Khabarovsk – and of course, their new governor, which is a candidate for “weirdest bills introduced in a parliament ever” award. It’s crazy. Also, don’t forget that we just published a new historical episode too – so, check it out, your feed should contain both!

    The Day Russia Wasn't

    The Day Russia Wasn't

    Greetings, comrades!
    So, that voting thing passed. I want to go back to Siberial colonisation. But I asked online, on socilal media, do you really NEED an episode on the utter amd complete nonsense that just happened…and the answer was “No, but we need You to tell us about it”. And I am telling you about the ultimate farce in election rigging that has ever happened. And continuation on the super antisemitic orthodox priest that took over a monastery. Because why not. Retrurning to reasonable episodes next week, I guess,

Interesting topic

To be honest I wasn’t sure what I would think of this but I was hooked in the first minute. Maybe it’s the funny accent or maybe all the interesting topics from the other side of the curtain. The host cares about the content and that come right though when he delivers the message. It’s a quality show that I think anyone can relate to.

Coolest podcast out there

I love how this podcast is from the Latvian perspective. I love the stories, anecdotes, Soviet propaganda quotes, and all the jokes about daily life and government ludicrousness. Keep up the good work.

Real Eastern Border

I love the Eastern Border podcast listening to a mix of Soviet history and the history of Latvia and the current corruption in Russia. Kristaps is dryly funny and so knowledgeable on his many topics of interest!!
