Season 1 Ep. 7 From Russia with Ksenia Anske

Ksenia was born and raised in Moscow, Russian is her native language, so why does she write books in English? This week we talk to Ksenia Anske, accomplished dark fantasy writer, about Russian history and culture. We learn how to speak in a proper Russian accent plus we learn some hilariously strange ways to cuss at someone in Russian. You’re gonna wet your pants when you hear this episode!

Special thanks to Ksenia Anske! Follow her everywhere:
