Yesterday I binged on a new NPR Podcast – Rough Translation – and was completely blown away by the episode “Ukraine vs. Fake News”.
Maybe I just had my head in the sand (I definitely had my head in the sand), but the cunning, the manipulation, the sheer dark genius of Putin is freaking me out. I wanted to go to bed with Dostoyevsky for a week. Books, not corpse.
It was troubling, of course… but I was also excited by the game. He certainly makes the rest of us look like bumbling buffoons.
In Putin’s Russia, the story writes YOU !!
