Polish journalist Jacek Hugo-Bader recounts his journey through one of the remotest and baddest parts of Russia. Hugo-Bader travelled the 2,000km Kolyma highway hearing the tales of those who live in the region and being plied with vodka. The stories are of the descendants of prisoners eking out a living, of miners digging for gold and finding mass burials, of conmen and corrupt politicians, and of sportsmen who have run away to Russia’s remotest region to escape their troubles.

Hugo-Bader is a journalist for the leading Polish daily, Gazeta Wyborcz, and author of the acclaimed White Fever: A Journey to the Frozen Heart of Siberia.

Hugo-Bader talks to former presenter of BBC Radio Night Waves Susan Hitch.
