Ep 269 | The Truth About Growing Up in the Soviet Union | Guest: Gia Jandieri

Kibbe on Liberty - A podcast by Blaze Podcast Network - Wednesdays

The country of Georgia is a beautiful place of rich traditions and a unique wine-making culture, but like so many countries, its individual character and history were nearly wiped out by the enforced homogeneity of the Soviet Union. Matt Kibbe talks to Gia Jandieri, founder of the New Economic School, about what it was like for him to spend half his life under an oppressive communist regime. When everything was made illegal, Georgians had to resort to the black market to do everything from operating their businesses to educating their children, with death being the penalty for being caught.
