E83: Patrick Reevell on American Gaylen Grandstaff's ‘Two-Year Moscow Prison Odyssey’
Play • 29 min
Today’s guest is Patrick Reevell, the Moscow bureau reporter for ABC News who co-authored the June 26 report about American Gaylen Grandstaff’s “two-year odyssey” in a Moscow remand prison. Patrick was kind enough to come on the podcast and explain how this report came together. He and Kevin talked about how he discovered the story, what this banned “gamma-butyrolactone” substance really is, and how ABC journalists decided to cover Grandstaff’s trial.(Pictured in podcast episode featured image: Gaylen Grandstaff.)Read the ABC News article here:https://abcnews.go.com/International/inside-american-gaylen-grandstaffs-year-odyssey-russian-prison/story?id=63769708Follow Patrick on Twitter here:https://twitter.com/ReevellpSupport this very podcast here:www.patreon.com/kevinrothrockMusic and audio:Ну погоди, episode 14, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncHd3sxpEbo&t=7sОлег Анофриев, Бременские музыканты, “Говорят, мы бяки-буки,” www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-3wC7gkMDQHenrik Lundkvist, “Kalinka on a Balalaika,” www.youtube.com/watch?v=hH5znHQ9QRYGaylen Grandstaff - ESL Teacher at British Academic Centre, December 18, 2014, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7xyMdOxaAI
