NOTE TO POWER VERTICAL LISTENERS
It is with very deep and profound sadness that I announce that the July 31, 2020 episode of The Power Vertical Podcast was the last one I will produce for some time. I founded The Power Vertical franchise at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty in 2008 with the strong support of RFE/RL’s senior management and editorial staff. At its peak of production in 2017 it comprised a written blog, a daily video blog, a weekly podcast, and daily email newsletter. For the past 28 months it was hosted at CEPA, where it comprised a twice-weekly video blog and weekly podcast. It is my sincere hope that I will find a new home for the Power Vertical franchise in the nearest future – but until that time production will be on hold. This is a product I believe in, enjoy producing, and truly hope has added to the public debate on Russian and post-Soviet affairs. Updates will be posted here, on The Power Vertical Facebook fan page, and on the @PowerVertical Twitter feed.
