SOLD OUT: Masha Gessen in conversation

Journalist in exile, persecuted in Moscow as one of the few openly queer public figures, Masha had to flee Russia or lose their children. Staff writer for The New Yorker and author of 12 books, including the National Book Award-winning The Future is History: How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia, Masha Gessen joins Dylan Moran for a wide-ranging discussion, which could go anywhere from Donbas to Dostoyevsky, why autocrats fear LGBT rights and what the West gets wrong about Putin.
