MNT host Ben Green is back after spending the past year uncovering the riches of Europe’s Baltics. After several months studying Russian history and politics in St. Petersburg, Ben resettled in Helsinki before moving to a rural town in Finnish Lakeland. Along with stories from his side trips to Vilnius and Riga, Ben shares insights into Russian and Finnish civilization and tells the tale of his exodus on one of the last flights out of St. Petersburg. Along the way, Ben introduces us to some Finnish treats: leipäjuusto, joulutorttu, and sima.
