The More than True podcast returns with a vintage story about spies, Russians, shoes, USA electoral politics, and raisins.
It's an audio rendition of the story More Than One Day in the Life of Igor Igoravitch, from the collection Hard Fought Illusions of Choice. Enjoy. It is strong. Like Stalin.

An excerpt from Tragic Stories Disguised as Jokes.
I have a joke about Gennady Zyuganov, Head of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, but odds are you will never hear it. Even though Gennady Zyuganov is a funny name. To western ears. And this has nothing to do with the podcast. Sort of.
Two pieces, one about Barack Obama telling jokes, one about George W. Bush having a one track mind.
I don't ordinarily do topical material. The danger being that people will forget t...
R.D. Laing at play via Wikipedia
If you are feeling off, perhaps you need a good talking to; which is why I have devoted the second half of the podcast to the Scottish psychiatrist R.D. Laing. I discovered him in college on the alternative reading list for psychology. He was an existentialist psychiatrist.

Also, a song is sung.
