Soviet Union

Airs Monday, April 10, 2017, at 1 p.m. Take a break from your pre-Passover cleaning or whatever else you're doing, for the “Sounds Jewish” Passover seder in song. Hear ceremonial Pesach music in many styles from throughout the Jewish world – Israel, India, Cuba, Brazil, America and the former Soviet Union. Sorry, but you'll have to prepare your own dinner.

Airs Sunday, September 22 at 6 p.m. It's been over 20 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Young people in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Georgia are facing unemployment, democratic pressure, and the legacy of repression, while being influenced by the West, punk music, and the Pussy Riot trials. PRX sent a reporting team from the Seattle Globalist to explore the tensions in these countries, described by The Atlantic as 'uneasily suspended' between two political eras. Join host Brooke Gladstone for Generation Putin, an in-depth look at the millennial generation in the post-Soviet states.
