Episode details

The fall is here, and the Lean Out podcast is back — renewed, refreshed, and ready to dive in on the debates of the day.

There’s no better way to kick off the season than with our brilliant guest today, who’s been ringing the alarm on pessimism about the West. He grew up in the Soviet Union under communism, and moved to the UK in his youth, forging successful careers as a translator, a comedian, a political commentator, and most recently, a podcaster. 


Konstantin Kisin is co-host of the Triggernometry podcast. His new book is An Immigrant’s Love Letter to the West.

Konstantin Kisin is my guest — for the first fall episode of Lean Out. Transcript to come tomorrow for paid subscribers.
