Ep. 67 - Alexey Kovalev

Hello and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this, our 67th episode, our guest is Alexey Kovalev.
Alexey Kovalev is a journalist and founder of the website The Noodle Remover, where he monitors the Russian media, teaches information literacy, and runs crowdsourced and crowdfunded investigations. He contributes to The Guardian, Wired and The Washington Post, among other outlets, mostly writing about the media in Russia, how they handle both political pressure from above and convulsions of the free market from below. Kovalev has worked everywhere from daily local newspapers to independent magazines to state news agencies. Until recently, he was the news editor at The Moscow Times, one of the few remaining independent English-language outlets in Russia.
