Great podcast if you are looking for a knowledgeable dialogue about Russia.
Interesting and informative
This podcast covers aspects of modern events and Russian culture (and recent history) in a at not found in other podcasts. It covers issues I didn't know existed as well as those that are well known, but from a new perspective.
I listen to every episode.
Sean is an incisive and unpretentious interviewer, and the topics are a great mix of history and current events. Highly recommend.
