The Berlin Wall just fell. The Soviet Union is on the verge of collapse. And the soundtrack to the revolution is one of the best selling songs of all time, the metal ballad “Wind of Change,” by the Scorpions. Decades later, New Yorker journalist Patrick Radden Keefe heard a rumor: the song wasn’t written by the Scorpions. It was written by the CIA. Wind of Change is his journey to find the truth."https://crooked.com/podcast-series/wind-of-change/And last, but definitely not least, Vic's 2nd choice is:Adam Buxton with George the Poet https://adam-buxton.co.uk/podcasts/ep125-george-poet-london-podcast-festival-2019Adam talks with British poet, rapper and podcaster George Mpanga, aka George The Poet.
