Matryoshka 2: The Shadow Over Tallinn
 ALERT: There is strange audio tearing starting around 15 minutes in, but it only lasts for about 6 or 7 minutes. Picking up where they left off last time, GRU Division C heads to Tallinn, the capital of the Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic, to investigate an antiques dealer who may know something about what the party found in Siberia. Along the way, they meet up with a local KGB agent (played by our friend Johnny Samyavadi!) and hijinks ensue. CORRECTION: Most people in Estonia speak Estonian and not Finnish. Estonian is very close to Finnish, but it is a separate language. We regret the error. Outro music: Prelude in E minor, Gerry Mulligan Sextet

Matryoshka 1: Cold Dead Hand
GRU Division C (code-named "Matryoshka") is sent on their first assignment: investigate a nuclear missile silo in the frozen north of Siberia which has gone silent.  HEADS UP: A non-player character commits suicide in this episode around the 51 minute mark. It's quick and not lingered on but if that upsets you, please skip to 00:51:20 or just hit your "advance 30 seconds" button if listening on a podcast app. Outro music: "All This I Do For Glory" - Colin Stetson
