She’s In Russia With Smith Freeman and Olivia Capozzalo


Since late 2013, the US and Russia have been engaged in a state of tension and information warfare, sometimes referred to as Cold War II. The recent US-based intrigue and investigation into the relationship between Putin, Trump and hacking has increased tensions to a fever pitch, most notably in the politics and media of the American Left. Cold War II represents and encourages some of humanity’s very worst tendencies – towards xenophobia, ignorance, falsity.

On this podcast two best friends — one in St. Petersburg and the other in Brooklyn — call each other and talk about US-Russian politics and/or culture in an attempt to push back against the caricature and sensationalism that dominate the current discussion in mainstream Politics and Media.
