Back in the mid-1990’s, journalist Lisa Dickey traveled to Russia in order to perfect her Russian language skills and ply her trade as a writer. During her stay she trekked across the country from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg, meeting people in the Russian hinterlands, chronicling their personal stories, and making friends in eleven different cities, then coming back again and again to see how their lives had changed over the course of the next 20 years. In her new book Bears in the Streets: Three Journeys Across a Changing Russia she chronicles her travels through Russia over the years and traces the ups and downs of ordinary people’s lives, in the process painting a deeply nuanced portrait of modern Russia. Lisa joins me today on the show to talk all about the book and the dramatic changes going on in Russia from technology to social norms, and how the Russians really feel about Vladimir Putin.
