In this episode we talk to two members of the Russian art collective Pussy Riot after a panel discussion they sat on at UNCA. Masha Alyokhina and Sasha Bogino were joined by producer Sasha Cheparukhin in the panel, moderated by Lori Horvitz and Emily Navarro from UNCA.
Many might remember Masha Alyokhina from a widely publicized action Pussy Riot conducted at the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow August 2012. Sasha Bogino is a journalist and editor from the group's media outlet Mediazona, and Sasha Cheparukhin is a producer and activist that has collaborated with the collective.
We have tons of audio from this event - a full recording of the panel discussion, interviews with Ashevillains before and after the panel, more interviews with Pussy Riot. Stay tuned to catch the broader story - and in the meantime, you can listen to the shorter piece here.
