For intermediate and advanced learners
Every episode is dedicated to one or a few Russian expressions that you are very likely to hear among your Russian friends, watching Russian movies, or simply in the street. Many of these expressions are strictly colloquial.

What our listeners say
I love this podcast. I've been studying Russian for a few years and this is perfect for my level. I love how the author includes the text of her lesson. I wish there were more podcasts like this one. Don't stop making these please!
My favorite Russian podcast
Really enjoy these podcasts! Not only do I learn slang and everyday expressions (harder than technical computer documents : ), but I can also listen to the beautiful pronounciation in the audio and compare it to mine - using this technique I finally mastered soft R - as in время, стрелять, and so on.
Thank you, and please keep making them!:)
just what I was looking for
I've studied Russian for several years and spent some time living in Moscow-- this really helps me understand and internalize contemporary Russian. they're worth listening to several times!
Useful Podcast Wonderfully Structured
This is an excellent podcast for going beyond the textbook--A great way to enhance your language learning and understanding of a little Russian culture through their idioms. The author also includes really helpful description notes so you can follow along and have a translation handy if need be. It's helped me enormously, thank you!!
Thank you for your hard work on this podcast, I sincerely hope you will continue! The themes are relevant, timely, and always interesting. The pace and level of vocabulary is very beneficial for my language development. This is by far my favorite Russian podcast. I’m ready for more episodes! Thanks.
Thank you so much for creating this podcast, and for putting the Russian with emphasis in the show notes along with the English translation. My family emigrated to the US form the Soviet Union when I was a baby, so I grew up speaking Russian at home, but my vocabulary is super limited, and I’m missing out on idiomatic expressions, slang, swearing, and shades of meaning (to say nothing of grammar). I learn a TON from your incredibly well-made podcast. Thank you! If you taught a Russian course, I would take it.
