Meet Nicolai Lilin – the last of a small and tight-knit community of what he terms ‘honest criminals’. Orinigally from Siberia, but deported to Transnistria – an uncreognised and self-proclaimed republic – by Stalin, the ‘Urkas’ are an insular fraternity: distrustful of outsiders and violently opposed to any authority.
A huge bestseller in Nicolai’s current home country, Italy, Siberian Education is an extraordinary snapshot of a world that no longer exists – part Siberian hunter-gatherer, part Mafia, and wholly unique.
Nicolai’s story is truly extraordinary, and we’re honored to present it.
We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
