Can you hear me, mother?
While we might get our (fake) news and entertainment from YouTube nowadays, in the 1920's that was radio. It's hard to imagine how hugely influential this new mass medium was. This episode shows how this was quickly incorporated in propaganda machineries all over the world. New strategies emerged and those who addapted succeeded.


Cheers,
Joram

I love that the USSR first broadcasts to the world. THEN their own population like a side note.
