Our second full part on the topic of Putin's Russia, we cover more of that fun-loving gaggle of nationalist extremist conspiracy theorists who run that place these days, and with the help of our intrepid guide, Professor Yablokov, we learn how they do that conspiracy and repression voodoo that they do...so well. Also, we explore a series of interlocking theories that post-Soviet nationalists dreamed up about US plans to destroy the USSR during the Cold War. They're ridiculous. Not more ridiculous than the actual CIA plots to make Castro's beard fall out or whatever, but still--ridiculous. See you soon.
