Howdy, folks! On today’s episode of The Russia Guy, Kevin interviews Andrew Roth, The Guardian’s new Moscow bureau chief, and a reporter who’s written previously for The Washington Post and The New York Times.In this interview, you’ll learn how Andrew Roth got into the business of reporting on Russia. I asked him about his upbringing, his education, and especially about his early days as a journalist in Russia. We also talked about the lifestyle and quality of living foreign correspondents enjoy in Moscow today, and about the news agenda as it exists in Russia and in the West. What was it like to report from Moscow in the immediate aftermath of the RussiaGate scandal? What’s it like now, with spies getting poisoned, shopping malls burning down, and Putin grabbing a fourth presidential term? Here are the three stories Andrew mentions at the end of this interview:In Bleak Ukraine City, a Duo’s Odd Experiments Win a Niche Onlinehttps://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/18/world/europe/in-bleak-ukraine-city-a-duos-odd-experiments-win-a-niche-online.html From Russia, ‘Tourists’ Stir the Protestshttps://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/04/world/europe/russias-hand-can-be-seen-in-the-protests.html Ukraine Used Cluster Bombs, Evidence Indicateshttps://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/21/world/ukraine-used-cluster-bombs-report-charges.html If you enjoyed this episode and like listening to The Russia Guy, please consider pledging a little money on Patreon to help yours truly pay for sound recording, editing, and hosting:https://www.patreon.com/kevinrothrock
