Greetings, Comrades!I went to Germany for this one. Europarliament elections are coming. They’re practically here even – so this time, we’re teaming up with Ciaran of Previously in Europe fame, to explain what they are, and why they are especially …
Greetings, Comrades!This episode is with Matt from Nooks and Crannies podcast, where we talk about drug policies, the way Canada differs from the US, and how you, colonials, differ from us on the motherland, and why does it all matter. It’s a very …
Greetings, Comrades. Due to popular request, here’s our review of Imperator: Rome and an introduction to Paradox grand strategy games to the rest of you. This does’t replace my standard episodes and patrons will not be charged for it, but if you’d …
Greetings, Comrades! The 26th of April was the 33rd anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster. And since the last time we did the Chernobyl episode a few years ago, new documentation - namely KGB reports about the whole thing, have been declassified. A…
Greetings, Comrades!This episode is about the Russian swearword culture – and why it matters, how it formed the society and why is it so important to us all. There’s a poem by Pushkin inside there too. But, obviously, an episode about swearwords an…
Greetings, Comrades!This one's important. Russia's Gosduma just passed a law, that would in effect allow the Russian government to isolate their internet from the rest of the planet at will, and would basically serve as an extra layer of internet c…
Greetings, Comrades!Posting this episode just a few hours before flying back home to Latvia. In this episode, me and Stephen from the glorious and highly recommended Baked and Awake podcast (http://bakedandawake.com/) discuss a peculiar released CI…
Greetings, Comrades! I’m posting this from Vancouver, Canada. How crazy is that. And I spent a while in the US, and will be spending some more and…well, it’s pretty crazy. You’ll hear about them in the episode. But yeah, had a long vacation, but wo…
Geetings, Comrades!This time, we bring you a special. A very important special, as we’re trying to offend the most dangerous man in Russia here, and are being god at it. Enjoy!Audio Player
Greetings, Comrades! This is the second part of Anete’s experiences in Cuba, this time, with a more political twist. I think you’ll find it highly enjoyable.
Greetings, Comrades!Today we bring you Anete’s accounts on how it’s like in Cuba. As you heard in the last episode, she was there for about two weeks or so, and recorded two episodes about her experiences. And I hope some nice Soviet nostalgia as w…
Greetings, Comrades!We're back from our vacation. Back with a vengeance, looking back and following up on all the news that happened last year, together with a fresh look on what's about to happen with Belarus. And none of those things are particul…
Greetings, Comrades!This one’s for a quick Christmas special. Unedited, because I wanted to make sure that you get the real emotions. That, and our editor is in Cuba, relaxing and gathering matherials. You see, I did an episode in November about ho…
Greetings, Comrades!I wanted to bring you something special this time. Something completely dfferent, but something that will allow you to look into a very special kind of mindset. It’s a motivational speech (of sorts), originally given in Russian,…
Greetings, Comrades! This is the episode when millions die. For the first time but not the last one. Also Trotsky leaves the scene here. Have fun.
Greetings, Comrades! Once again, insanity happens. So, I bring to you the completely unedited (one take and not my good mic as am not home too) result of working in the middle of the night to inform you about the details of the boat incident in the…
Greetings, Comrades!We got our hands on KGB instructional manuals, about what were their goals, how they were supposed to act and what and why did they do things that they did. But this is not a history episode. Sadly, this is a news episode, Think…
Greetings, Comrades! In this special episode, dedicated to the Latvian 100th anniversary, I’d like to tell you the adventures of the migthy (and utterly insane) Latvian terrorist Aijo Beness. It makes sense at the end. Enjoy!
Greetings, Comrades!This was supposed to be a news episode, but instead I somehow did a whole thing about the GRU instead. It just came naturally. Also, I talk really fast in this one as…well, I didn’t originally intend to make a whole ep about thi…
Greetings, Comrades!So, I shipped out to Boston, and went on and had a speech in Harvard, walked the freedom trail in full and did a lot of fun and interesting things in the USA. Also, had a short spot-on interview with Our Lord and Master, Supreme…
Greetings, Comrades!This episode is a great discusson with Sebastian Major from https://ourfakehistory.com/ podcast! He’s just done a great three part series on Stalin myths, which you all should go and listen to immediately. We talk about Uncle Jo…
Greetings, Comrades!Sadly, the events that happen in these parts unfold so quickly, that I can’t really keep up with everything that I want to do, which would be more specials and Stalin series – but not like I can skip over the news either. Becaus…
Greetings, Comrades!This episode is about a “small war”, and you’ll get to know exactly what that means. This episode isn’t fun. It’s horror and war from the first person perspective. This was hard for me to make, and I fully excpect it’ll be hard …
Greetings, Comrades!In this episode, which I just had to make, we look back at what happened to Latvian elections, and also at the utter weirdness of Russian politics lately, including something that might cause some real problems – land trade betw…
Greetings, Comrades!Latvian elections are coming- and they’re among (if not the) craziest one’s we’ve ever had. So, when else would be a better time, to finally talk our own politics. For this episode, I interviewed one of the best Latvian journali…
