The 9th podcast is out: you can download all my podcasts from the Saker Podcasts download page:
or you can directly go to the 9th podcast download page here:
If you wonder why I promote these download pages it is because they have one of those nifty PayPal button which, I hope, will remind you that one of the purposes of these podcast is to remind you to support my work.
The entire podcast was recorded with a small handheld digital record (the Zoom H1 shown on the picture) and I hope that the sound quality is acceptable. I tried to remove most of the car noise, and even though the recording volume is not that high, there is some clipping which I don’t know how to remove yet.
Finally, you can also listen to the podcast on Youtube (see below).
I hope that you will enjoy the podcast. Please let me know.
Cheers and hugs,
what a nice picture of Putin. I’m looking forward to listening to podcast. Maybe its about him….
I’ve searched and searched but it always comes back to the same old story….that ‘religious’ freaks are beyond help….indoctrinate the young brain, it shuts down and you have it for life….a major problem for humanity over the years.
Still there are some interesting facts and fiction about Russia to be read here so it’s remained worth a look, except that the analysis is becoming rather predictable, which if you believe my first paragraph is, ahem, rather predictable….
Just listened to the ‘on the road’ podcast. I want to let you know that I really enjoyed the format – the unrehearsed Q&A was spontaneous, wide-ranging, and informative, and it was interesting to hear you ‘thinking out loud’. I would encourage you to do another one like it.
But… be please be safe out there on the highways! :-)
I too really love the “thinking out loud” feel to it. Well put!
No one is doing “radio” like this. It’s relaxing yet informative — big time — to listen to. Instead of being shouted at, a la A. Jones and a million others, being talked to and encouraged to think. Who else turned on so many Westerners to people like N. Starikov? I never would have heard of him if not for this community. Saker’s stuff makes for simply great radio, and has helped me be a more aware and hopefully better person. What’s not to like?
I agree. The format and sound was fine, and it was like a conservation or listening to a knowledgeable neighbor or teacher just talking, person to person, and explaining instead ‘presenting’ and ‘selling’.
When I was a kid there was some radio like this — Art Linkletter, Rambling with Gambling, Jean Sheapard, Long John Nebel, who would just talk — it was real talk radio instead of a propaganda spiel.
This is a must for all those concerned with Ukraine
warning! Extreme graphics of the slides of Poles massacred in Volhynia
some slides are doubled up,but you will get the picture!
we see the true nature of Bandera filth,no sane person could perform these atrocities
Thanks for your clarification of Donbas politics : especially the discussion of personality versus institutions .
Thank you for an excellent podcast , I also enjoy the spontaneous delivery along with the various background noise. I read and and appreciate many articles on this site, but somehow hearing is received in a more immediate way than reading. God bless and be careful reading while driving.
I enjoyed the car ride along with you, and as always – appreciated your knowledge and analysis.
Q&A format is good. Sound quality overall is perfectly fine for me.
Travels with Saker. What a fun concept!
I look forward to listening to it thank you…Rt documentary on Uk tv tonight v good-on the trail of the “troika” re their shennanagens over Cyprus Greece etc….
plus Lavelle crosstalk tonight examining truth lies Syria————-note PM Cameron expounding today that Assad must go by UK military means……………..is that a declaration of war by UK? Could Rus as an ally denounce Uk and knock it for six by any means possible(not militarily )?
Such things led to WW!…………………….
Thank _you_ for a great show… the format is great, please put a link to your podcasts on the front page so newbies can find. I think your community has made a lot of people happier and less lonely! I’m surprised no one is broadcasting you on the airwaves (yet!)… Cheers!
btw… I _do_ remember what you diplomatically called “that stupid movie”, “Red Dawn.” You had to live through the 80’s to understand that (and many other hair-gelled forms of) particular stupidity. Post-podcast it looks even dumber…. where were they flying the paratroopers in from, space ships?
Podcast #9: Best one ever. It appears to me you have mastered the form. Your answers were precise and you did not seem hesitant or wander or repeat much. The questions you did not feel at ease with you quickly eliminated–wise choice–and there were a variety of questions. Hey, maybe the questions were also better from all the stubborn folk who have stuck with you. Yes, your back is covered. It was sad to hear your assessment of the American people’s predicament because although i wish it were not so, at least now I feel confirmation in what lies ahead. It ain’t going to be pretty.
Thank you for another interesting podcast, you always have something to say really worth hearing. The spoken word brings another dimension to your writings and I am fond of the Q and A format because of the diversity of topics you touch upon, although some topics of cours are begging for a sole podcast session, like for instance the European and Asian components or faces of Russian culture (what do you exactly mean by one and the other and to what degree are they complete opposites, what is the good and the bad in one, and what in the other. Who are the Russian authors who you think understood the subject best?).
Anyway, I have no technical complaints either, but one worries when you read and drive. I don’t doubt you are no stranger to multitasking (of Caesar quality), but still seems risky. Stay safe and sound! Hope you are resting necely! Abundance of gratitude on my part!
Two absurdities you gave the (possibly inadvertent) impression of endorsing: that homosexuals run the country, and that the only alternative to religious “truth” is root and branch relativism. Neither crucial to your geopolitical analysis, so best avoided.
Interesting podcast. Just came across it. I have seen references to your website in the past, but never came over the have a look. One line caught my ear.
I agree, people here in the US are just trying to wait out the government/cabal/whatever til it collapses, and hopefully no one gets hurt befor eit goes out.
I have some friends in other countries. I try to tell them the same thing. Just wait, and this whole sordid operation is clearly going to come down on its own.
I agree, it is basically almost impossible for the average person to have any big effect. They are destroying themselves slowly, but if you get in the way, you will be destroyed quickly no doubt.
