Podcast Chat: The Story Behind “How to Kill a Superpower”

Event Format

The Davis Center’s new podcast, “How to Kill a Superpower,” investigates how the signing of the Belavezha Accords in 1991 led to the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Alexandra Vacroux and Aruzhan Merikhanova will speak with Dr. Yelena Biberman and Zachary Troyanovsky, the creative team behind the podcast, about the role the Belavezha Accords played in the dissolution of one of the world's superpowers, why they wanted to tell the story through a podcast, and how they actually went about creating the podcast.
