Wiczipedia Podcast

I’m happy to share The Wiczipedia Podcast, a deep dive into the issues of Eastern Europe meant to accompany the fun you’re already getting in the form of my weekly newsletter.

This podcast is dormant as other projects have taken priority, but you can find the back episodes here!

 

 

Episode 1: Trump, Eastern Europe, and Immigrants

This month I’m joined by journalists Ilya Lozovsky and Lili Bayer, and we’re discussing the impact of the Trump administration’s Muslim ban on us as American immigrants and the things about Trump that worry us as people who have studied post-communist autocracies.

Episode 2: What’s up with Poland? 

Nina is joined by journalist Christian Davies, who has been living in Poland during the past 18 months of political crisis that have embroiled the country. He explains what’s been going on and why it matters for the larger democratic order.

Read more about Poland in Christian’s long read for The Guardian, “The Conspiracy Theorists Who Have Taken Over Poland” – https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/feb/16/conspiracy-theorists-who-have-taken-over-poland

…and follow him on Twitter @crsdavies.

Episode 3: Much Ado About Disinformation



Nina is joined by Ivana Smolenova of the Prague Security Studies Institute and Margo Gontar of StopFake to discuss the topic of the day/hour/year: Russian disinformation and its affect on our societies.
