Girls, Glitter and Gangsters in Putin's Russia

Hosted by

Peter Pomerantsev worked for ten years as a television producer in modern Russia, as he puts it, “pushing [his] way into people’s lives, trying to get as close to things as possible. Now he’s written a book with a title that summarizes his conclusions. Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible” is subtitled “The Surreal Heart of the New Russia.” Pomerantsev, who now lives in London, opens our eyes to a surreal world of gangsters, prostitutes, impoverished grandmothers and new millionaires.
