About a Boy: The Story of Vladimir Putin

Audacy Studios | Puck
Society & CultureHistory

The West's obsession with Vladimir Putin's KGB past often misses the biographical detail that can be captured by a single word: dvor. The word means courtyard in Russian, but to a Russian speaker, it is evocative of a whole universe. It was the space where Putin, like so many Soviet kids of his generation, grew up and learned an unforgiving, often brutal social code. Puck journalist Julia Ioffe introduces Westerners to that universe and explains why it’s critical to understanding the Russian president and what he might do next in the war against Ukraine.

  • Great storytelling, but long wait between episodes

    This is probably my favorite new podcast this year. Amazing if you like history and intrigued about Russia. Only complaint is that new episodes only drop every 7-10 days or so, so once I got into it I have to wait a while before the next chapter.

  • Love it, but

    I really want to love this show. But why is it only half episodes? I’ve listened to two, but both cut off mid sentence.
