I listened to the podcast. It's an interview with Princeton music professor Simon Morrison about his book Bolshoi Confidential: Secrets of the Russian Ballet from the Rule of the Tsars to Today. For the most part, the interview skips along to highlight various scandals mentioned in the book. Your appreciation for the podcast interview will depend upon your familiarity with the Bolshoi and Russian histories as well as desire to hear about salacious or scandalous stories.
