On today’s show, we welcome back Matt Bodner, a journalist in Moscow who reports primarily on national defense and the space industry. His latest article for Defense News combines these two themes, as it’s about the mysterious explosion reported on Russia’s northern frontier on August 8. In the article, Matt reviews the leading theories about what blew up, and he floated some bold suggestions that Russia’s so-called “Skyfall” nuclear-powered missile could be an entirely fake project designed to deter the United States.Read the article here:https://www.defensenews.com/global/europe/2019/08/13/an-explosion-a-spike-in-radiation-evacuation-preparations-what-exactly-happened-in-russia/Follow Matt on Twitter here:https://twitter.com/mattb0401Support this very podcast here:www.patreon.com/kevinrothrockMusic and audio:Ну погоди, episode 14, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncHd3sxpEbo&t=7sОлег Анофриев, Бременские музыканты, “Говорят, мы бяки-буки,” www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-3wC7gkMDQSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/kevinrothrock)
