Excellent rendering of Russian History

Being a professional historian born in former Soviet Union, I highly recommend this well researched and thought provoking podcast.

Loving it so far!

Got pointed here by Mike Duncan - I’m only about 10 episodes in. I studied Russian history and language and college and this has been a great refresher. Perfect podcast for any history lover or Russophile. I wish I could have had this pod to study with! Only critique is that the logo is in faux-Cyrillic...if you can read Cyrillic or speak a Slavic language it’s horrible to look at. It’s obvious you’ve done your research and know what you’re talking about but it kills your credibility at first glance.

If you love history podcasts subscribe to this

I’d like to start by saying thanks for doing this, I’ve been looking for a great Russian podcast and burned through all the episodes in two long drives. To listeners, most likely this isn’t the first podcast you've listened to, but if your a fan of Mike Duncan (Revolutions, which actually pointed me towards this podcast) or Dan Carlin, this is a great podcast that goes into an equally wonderful amount of detail. I will note due to this being the creator’s first series (which is awesome) the first few episodes are rough around the edges but by ep 8-9 (each ep is roughly 10 minutes) he really hits his stride. Thank you for the podcast and I can’t recommend it enough!
