On this episode, we meet the wonderful Dr. Evgenia Wilkins, a native of St. Petersburg who now teaches Russian language, Soviet culture, and environmental studies here in the heart of Texas. She talks about her upcoming Maymester program in Siberia in which students of all disciplines will get to explore the beauty of Lake Baikal through hands-on environmental studies (no knowledge of Russian necessary).
