    Migrant crisis in Baltics

    Migrant crisis in Baltics

    Greetings, Comrades!
    This episode turned out weird. I mean…EXTRA weird. What was meant to be about just how Belarus is using poor souls as their political weapon turned into somehting else when the migrants just…dissappeared. Not even kidding.
    Also, yeah, there will be only 3 eps this month, due to how insanely difficult it was to make this one and Kristaps’s birthday is on the 28th. So if you can, please do click that PayPal button. Thank You!

    Greetings, Comrades!

    Peter the Painter 2

    Greetings, Comrades! Part 2 of the Peter the Painter is here. Sorry about the weird way how I speak, I’ve understood that I should NEVER rely on translations made by other people, because this…this was so weird that it got me a massive headache and confusion. Sydney Street Siege, Churchill and ever evasive Peter in this one! Enjoy!

    Peter the Painter 1

    Greetings, Comrades! This time, we take a look at a thing that I’ve wanted to make an ep for a long while. Latvian bomb throwing anarchists that came into being right after 1905. And Peter the Painter is the most famous of them all, literally being the reason why British cops walk everywhere armed. Involved with a firefight with Churchill himself, it’s an amazing story. Part 2 coming soon! Enjoy!

My new favorite podcast

I love this history podcast because it gives the perspective of real people in the Soviet Union. Very interesting. I’m looking forward to catching up on the last six years worth of episodes!

The host of this limited-hangout frequently relies on propaganda for sources

According to this electronics repairman, the ClA/FBl/l$rael are benevolent, and omnipotent-Russia is behind every tragic event and conspiracy of the last century... He is either duplicitous or a massively ignorant Pavlovian infant oblivious to his propaganda addiction.

I’ve been a fan but…..

I’ve listened to your most of your shows and have found them interesting and have supported your show financially. Recently i watched a show detailing the pogroms that Lativia instigated in world war 2. Maybe its time to shine a light on your own country’s not so pretty past and THEN continue detailing Russia’s bad acts. I certainly am no Russia fan but think its hard for the pot to call the lettle black without at least owning up a bit. I think this would enhance your shows credibility.
