Indispensable

I discovered this show after the 24 Feb full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Russia. Since then, I have listened to all of Kristaps previous episodes and will continue to listen for as long as the show continues.

A massive gap in my understanding of the Baltic States and the history of the USSR has been filled. Do yourself a favor.

If a podcast can be an experience this is it

How can one possibly describe listening, no, accompanying a host into a life on the edge. A life on the edge of being a witness to a society becoming post soviet and embracing western values to the extent that it improves and heals the past. A life on the edge of respecting and holding dear national and family tradition while looking forward. And a life living on the edge of war both from those watching and of those trapped by it. Thank you for inviting us in all its earthy realness to accompany you in this telling.

Incredibly informative, unfiltered and sincere.

Unbelievably sincere and real. I have grown to love this show and care deeply for the host as a friend whose voice keeps me company in the dark abyss of the void reminding me that, “Happiness is mandatory.”

Do svidaniya, tovarishchi.
