Svetlana! Svetlana!

Society & CultureDocumentaryHistory

In 1967, Joseph Stalin’s daughter braved her way over the Iron Curtain, secret memoir in tow, and landed in America as the Cold War’s most famous defector. At 40 years old, Svetlana had left everything behind for a new life in the West and the chance to finally share her story. What she found instead — a controversial commune in the Arizona desert built by Frank Lloyd Wright, a whirlwind marriage dictated by destiny, and a Montenegrin matriarch with dreams of immortality — was far more complicated. In Svetlana! Svetlana! neurotic playwright Dan Kitrosser unravels the weird and wild life of his greatest muse.

  • Great Storytelling!

    I was sucked into this podcast from the first episode. Dan’s storytelling style is captivating and hilarious. I love hearing his take and how Svetlana’s story impacted his own life. He’s true to himself and relatable. (Unlike some hosts who pretend they’re journalists when they’re so clearly not. Or at least not good ones.) Highly recommend!

  • A podcast about a playwright doing a podcast writing a play

    I don't usually write negative reviews about podcasts, but this one is the quintessential example of a good story combined with bad narration. I got through two episodes before deciding I'd rather read Svetlana's Wikipedia page than continue listening to Dan talking about how Dan is writing a play about Svetlana and about his personal obsession and speculation about her. He has a good time with it, and you may too, but I found his narrative style distracting from an otherwise fascinating topic.

  • Браво!

    I was skeptical coming in. I usually listen to dry historical stuff and wasn’t sure about the first peaks into Daniel’s life and creative process. He and Svetlana won me over. This podcast is a breath of fresh air. I love how he uses his life to tell her story without centering himself. I think his ability to poke fun at himself while also poking fun at Svetlana’s experiences removed much of the snark I’ve found in similarish podcasts. Bravo!
