Does anyone know “What’s the Matter with Kansas?” We do, now that we have seen that very episode of The Americans! It’s Season 5 Episode 4 and it aired March 28, 2017! This episode was written by Gwyneth Horder-Payton and directed by Peter Ackerman.
This is Episode 80 and contains our history, tech of yesteryear, and feedback segments. Please check out Episode 79 to get the news and our episode breakdown and analysis.
Literary history with some geography awaits us, starting with the book What’s the Matter with Kansas? Then listener Robert sends along the book Pastor Tim gave Paige to read, Capital: The Communist Manifesto and Other Writings (Modern Library No. 202), which contains excerpts from Capital: Critique of Political Economy, and The Communist Manifesto; the book itself comes from the folks at Modern Library. Next we join Misha in Ljubljana, at that time part of The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, which is where in our tech segment we find how to make some delicious Kvass just like Alexei! We need it to deal with the tremendous amount of feedback you have provided us!
