EDITOR'S NOTE: Episode recorded during the 2019 ASEEES Conference in San Francisco, California.
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER'S NOTE: A special thanks to the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies for the financial support necessary to take the SlavX team to San Francisco for the multi-day convention. In just a few days, four hosts completed an amazing 18 interviews with unique guests from all over the world. Most of these will be made available on the podcast. Thank you also to the conference directors and staff at ASEEES for being so accommodating and helping SlavX staff find rooms to use as recording spaces. Additional thanks to Professor Craig Campbell at UT for inspiring our supervising producer with the idea to attend the conference and to SlavX team members Katya and Samantha for taking the trouble to apply for travel funds during the busiest time of the semester for grad students. Their initiative is nothing short of amazing to me, and hopefully everybody appreciates their efforts as much as I do. We hope you all enjoy these exclusive interviews!!
