Such a great podcast! Anyone that wants the intel about the unfolding story of Russia…this is the one. Putin the would be Stalin and his henchmen - Lavrov and all the other apparatchiks…a must listen!

Really easy listening and informative that’s occasionally dotted with very dry humour. Mark really knows his stuff about all elements of Russian politics and it shows. It’s particularly worthwhile when the host takes small asides in Russian culture - popular Lord of the Rings fan fiction, for...Read full review »

Indispensable and compulsive commentary - unmissable

One of the top 3 podcasts for satisfying the craving for information about Russia and its relationship to Ukraine

very informative

I came across this podcast when looking for information on the Ukraine war, and I am so glad I found it. The level of insight and analysis on the inner workings within Russia is truly amazing. A must listen podcast.

Great content. But please put the audio through a program to remove all the mouth noises or mouth clicks. You deserve it
Zack Jordan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/23
Along with the SRB podcast, this is one of the two indispensable shows to follow if you’re interested in learning more about Russia and all the former states of the Soviet Union. Years ahead of his time in contrast to the splurge of hastily self-appointed Russia experts that have proliferated...Read full review »

I am voracious in my appetite in all things Ukraine War. Your Podcast has offered such insight in these darks times. You educate you listeners, not only about the war, but international goings on that may affect said war. You do well to not scare us (fear mongering is bad !) and you even draw out...Read full review »

Entertaining, clever, philosophical. Not just about Russia, but the interconnection of broader issues that we all are currently facing now but more importantly the downstream possibilities and consequences of what’s happening. Thanks Mark! Brilliant.

Listen to each episode. Always interesting. Very good
Hooves via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/20/22
Mark Galeotti is very well informed and absolutely in command of his material. Each podcast is historically well-grounded and also bang up to the minute. Galeotti must have excellent sources. Very much worth a listen/subscribe. His delivery is crisp and witty. One of my favourite podcasts.

Outstanding podcast that gets into the nuanced details of Russian history, politics and current political dynamics in a fresh, relatable and easily understood way for lay people like myself. Keep up the outstanding work!!

Interesting information, presenter sounds very knowledgeable on the subject. But the sound is VERY QUIET. Which makes it annoying to listen to. They need to put a limiter on the audio before exporting it. I listen to it on an external speaker that goes very loud but can sometimes barely hear...Read full review »

Absolutely worth listening! And a new addition to my podcast feed!

Great info and good narrator , very interesting esp during Ukraine war Defo worth a listen , wish there was more tbh
Alfreska via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/13/22
Best analysis of Russia from a non Russian I’ve seen, has a lot of deep knowledge that an goes a beyond and shatters some popular cultural conceptions about Russia.
Vercingetorix IV via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/02/22
I appreciated all your insight views on this spectrum.

Thanks so much for your interesting insights!!!

Can’t get enough of this guy. I’m waiting patiently on this post VE Day parade analysis!
connmattwhite via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/22
Social media is full of people who became “experts” on Russia last month, it’s refreshing to hear from someone who knows the subject inside out.
Aidal882 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 04/26/22
Really terrific to round out perspective of events in Ukraine. If you want a richer and deeper understanding of the Russian perspectives swirling around the Ukrainian invasion, this moves the news to 30,000 ft discussion pulling in history/economy/internal structures/tensions etc. Listening...Read full review »

Doesn’t know anything about our government. Calls Biden GOP.

Thank you for your insightful podcast.
mmonikaaa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/22
Fantastic podcast - I look forward to each new episode. I have been fascinated with Russia for a very long time.The podcast is always interesting, enlightening and thoughtful- there is such value in having understanding and insight so that you can see things from another perspective.
Suzhka via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/21/21
The author of this podcast calls Great Patriotic War a "myth." Really? He might be a Nazi as well, saying things like that. There should be NO place for anti-Semitic content like this on this platform!Read full review »

Mr Galeotti’s knowledge and dry delivery always makes this well worth a listen
Rich Willimas via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/22/21
My favourite podcast - always interesting and funny, even on the driest of topics. Mark Galeotti is a terrific storyteller and, beyond his expertise on Russia, shows a keen understanding of human nature. The podcasts always feel too short!
Terp in Tokyo via Apple Podcasts · Japan · 08/01/21
Very informative but please remember that the name of President Biden’s party is the Democratic Party, not the GOP preferred “Democrat” Party. Thanks in advance for your accuracy.
AlFromConnecticut via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/21
This is a great way to learn about modern Russia; an unbias, analytical show with a great host.
Initialsbc via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/31/21
A great way to keep up to date with Russian politics. Always an engaging listen.
HistoryObserver via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/11/21
It’s difficult here in the United States to know what actually goes on within the Russian power structure. Mark Galeotti offers a first rate perspective for those of us I’ll served by our own media and politicians, and, sadly, by those on the left who, though rightly skeptical, are as ill...Read full review »

I’ve followed Prof Galeotti now for almost a decade. He is in my opinion THE Russia expert and I always rely on his experience and analysis on the topic. I highly encourage any Russia watcher or Foreign Policy fan to subscribe and listen.
Big Homie Herald via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/08/20
Mark is one of the most astute analysts on Russia.

Do it
AverageJewishListener via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/20
It’s great to see Galeotti’s observations move into the pod sphere! I’m a total fanboy. He’s my first stop on all things Putinesque. It’s a difficult and complex subject that he makes eminently accessible. I can not recommend him enough. If you want to understand contemporary Russia then Mark...Read full review »
