Host Boris Dralyuk is joined by his fellow soviet-emigre Sasha Razor, and Soviet Scholar David MacFadyen, to conjure the spirit of the Holiday Season in the Workers' Paradise.  Sasha, David, and Boris relate how the beloved Soviet-era traditions remain alive across the vast territories of the USSR; and also among Southern California's huge immigrant communities from the former Communist Empire. Also, Boris and Sasha recommend Peter Pomerantsev's excellent book on Putin's Russia, "Nothing is True and Everything is Possible: The Surreal Heart of the New Russia."
