Leila tries to impersonate Joseph Stalin, and winds up doing a pretty good German vampire. Tristan warns Leila to never, ever watch the nuclear war docudrama, "Threads". We also discuss all the times we were almost vaporized without realizing it. Fun!
Episode 12, in which Leila discovers:
- That it's really German vampires who pronounce "the" as "zee", and not, as she had hoped, Joseph Stalin
- That hackneyed jokes about Soviet paranoia are a half decent way of understanding the Great Purge
And in which Tristan is forced to admit:
- That it's a lot easier to scoff at the failed Soviet science of Lysenkoism than it is to know one single thing about Gregor Mendel. He's the one who made plants have sex on...charts?
