Russian Alaska 1: Into Siberia

Greetings, Comrades! Obviously, I wasn’t going to tackle all of Russian Alaska in one episode. Because the subject is so huge, that it involves ALL of Russian Empire’s colonial policy. So, for this reason, have one of the darkest ep’s on the show, about how and why I’m not gonna use any Soviet sources in these series. And I also try to give voices to the unheard people’s of the Russian empire. Enjoy! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Russian Alaska 1: Into Siberia

May Madness Minisode

Greetings, Comrades! In this minisode, I explain what sort of bizzarre weird reaction happened JUST after I posted my Kadyrov ep. That is, how we're all evil now, and why I, too, apparently have issues with cops. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Ramzan Kadyrov has Covid!

Greetings, Comrades! This episode is another topical one, but that’s because I had intended to do my Latvian episode, but Delfi, the hosting site cancelled all indie podcasts there. Oh well. Anyhow, this is news, because I was nervous and also a Russian National-Bolshevik, which is basically a Pro-Putin, Pro-Stalin Neo-Nazi who’s funded by Russia, working for Sputnik.tv as a blogger has now gone to Latvian cops and wrote that I’m about to murder him and that he’s deadly afraid of me, because I wrote on his last super provocative hatred bullshit that people like him should be shot, while tipsy. Boo. We’re scary now. Let’s see how this works out, but just in case, I’m letting you know. Enjoy! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Boats 2. Kind of.

Greetings, Comrades! The author’s family, turns out, wasn’t happy about our show. They forbade me to use their matherials…so I brought another KGB spy story for you this time. And man…I HATE people’s personal memoires. Interviews are way easier to process into a script. But…at any rate, enjoy! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Glorious Incompetence

EGreetings, Comrades! This episode has everything. Protests, rioting, conspiracy theories, warmongering, hatred of america, absolute mad lads from Russian GosDuma…everything. At this point, Russia has 3 out of 4 apocalypse riders, and Death doesn’t seem to be that far away. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Spy Boat 1: We don't even get to the boat

Greetings, Comrades! Some episodes make me feel bad – but for various reasons. Some have awful subject matters, some…like this one, was created from a source so awful and incoherent – even though the subject matter is really interesting – that making a coherent narrative was just a massive pain in the backside. Oh, and we don’t even get to the boat itself. Because seriously, if I’d try to mix that one in as well, you’d probably get very confused at the end. But the groundwork needs to be set, and this is what we do here. Enjoy! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Covid 19 is a tool for democracy

Greetings, Comrades! We’re fully awake from our infection. And might even read the comments on our website and respond to them, which I haven’t in a while. But anyways, this is all about how Putin’s regime is acting like a fish out of water, and don’t know what to do with this situation. This virus…just might be their downfall. Enjoy!
