Summary
After two and a half years as NPR's Moscow bureau chief, David Greene journeys thousands of kilometres by rail from Moscow to the Pacific port of Vladivostok to find out how Russians' lives have changed in the post-Soviet years. He meets a group of singing babushkas from Buranovo, a teenager hawking 'space rocks' from a meteor shower in Chelyabinsk, and activists battling for environmental regulation in the pollution-choked town of Baikalsk
Summary
The co-host of NPR's "Morning Edition" describes his travels along the Trans-Siberian Railroad, from Moscow to Vladivostok, describing the people he met, from singing babushkas to entrepreneurial teens to political activists, and discusses the challenges faced by 21st-century Russia
