Russia Insider's editors/serfs sat down for an e-talk ("podcast") about the most memorable stories of the week. 

We briefly discussed Louise Mensch and her recent decision to not take her meds—again, but this important topic magically morphed into an in-depth talk about language policy in Russia's Republic of Bashkortostan (we kid you not).

Next: Megyn Kelly's potato performance in St. Petersburg; your editors agree with Gilbert Doctorow: NBC's "exclusive" with Putin was shameful and even dangerous. (Read Gilbert Doctorow's take here.)

Finally, we talk about our exclusive report about Linda Ives' 30-year battle to bring her son's killers to justice. We are preparing several follow-up stories, so stay tuned.

P.S. — there's no cheesy "professional" intro, but also no obnoxious sponsor messages or advertisements. So a win-win!
