Episode 22: Dreaming of Green Peas
Welcome to Stories of Communism, the podcast where we review and discuss the firsthand testimony of those who lived through the horrors of Communism over the past century. This is Erik Seligman, your co-host, along with Manuel Castaneda, recording from the suburbs of Portland, Oregon.
Today we’re interviewing another great guest, Zilvinas Silenas. As you’ll hear in the interview, Zilvinas spent his childhood in Communist Lithuania, but eventually grew up to become president of the Foundation for Economic Education, a well-known free market supporting think tank. Let’s listen to Zilvinas talk about his experiences as a child, and how they led him to become such an ardent critic of socialist and communist systems today.
We hope you enjoyed that interview as much as we did. You can read more from Zilvinas and his colleagues at the Foundation for Economic Education’s web page, FEE.org.
