Description

Meduza’s first English-language podcast, The Naked Pravda highlights how our top reporting intersects with the wider research and expertise that exists about Russia. The broader context of Meduza’s in-depth, original journalism isn’t always clear, which is where this show comes in. Here you’ll hear from the world’s community of Russia experts, activists, and reporters about the issues at the heart of Meduza’s stories.

The head of HSE PR doesn't speak English. And every student entering has to pass a toefl like exam. Facepalm!

While this was a valuable episode, the best thing Meduza could do for women is to forbid inappropriate behaviour in their own company. Their editor-in-chief harassed his employee's wife, got fired under public pressure but was quietly brought back to his position in less than a year. While this incident is obviously less horrific than the cases described in this episode, this certainly gives men the sense of impunity that causes domestic violence and shows Meduza's hypocricy.
