This week, on the Russian History Podcast, we get into the causes of the Great Famine, analysing how Boris made a desparate situation even worse, by issuing unsound economic policies and then not challenging the noblity and clergy who were exploiting the situation.

Questions and queries can be emailed to or by following @ruhipoca on Twitter.
