Episode #13: Immigrant Deprogramming with Anna/Аня (teaser)
In this ep Evgenia and I interview Anna/Аня, a fellow member of California’s Soviet immigrant community. We talk about why her parents left Leningrad and Baku, what it was like to grow up immersed in schizoid Soviet immigrant culture, and why she ultimately turned against Zionism and much of the politics of that world.
