Act One

It’s Probably Nothing 

Elena Kostyuchenko tells the story of how she was probably poisoned after reporting on Russian’s invasion of Ukraine, and how she kept not believing it was happening. Bela Shayevich translated this story from Russian and reads it for us. (21 minutes)

We adapted this from an article in n+1 magazine. Elena’s book is I Love Russia: Reporting from a Lost Country.
