Spacebridge #2 - Foreign Policy According to Freud

Source URL


The first two-way satellite links between the US and USSR are strange, disorganized, and sometimes a little magical. Battling language and technological barriers, Soviet and American musicians, computing pioneers, scientists, and even kids find a way to stage a series of exchanges across the skies -- at first awkward, but growing more meaningful as Cold War paranoia ratchets ever higher.

Spacebridge is a production of Showcase from PRX's Radiotopia with additional funding from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Our Russian content partner is the history site Arzamas.Academy.
