Greetings Comrades! Our episode about 1989 in the eastern bloc is out! Within: Baltic Way, interview about the Berlin Wall, soap operas, revolutions and more. As today is the largest Latvian national celebration of the year, I can’t provide more explanations right now, I have to jump over a fire, while drinking a beer! Līgo!

Pictures for today’s episode:

These are from the Baltic Way. They might seem naive and too optimistic, but…we were like this at the time. And we’re proud of it!

And this is one of my sources, the Soviet Youth newspaper of the November 7th, 1989.

Thank you for listening, I hope you’ll enjoy the show and…await our special episode.
