History Of Vodka!

Are you looking for a light podcast to listen to, something that does not need too much active attention and at the same time is funny and gives you some interesting information? Then this podcast on the history of vodka is for you.

Where do you think it originated from? How is it made? And how did this alcoholic beverage earn international acclaim?

Vodka has been associated with the cultural identity of Russians but there is much debate around its origin and people are expressing strong emotions around it. Russia and Poland both continue to claim the ownership of vodka. It has affected economy, history, politics and has medical and cleaning uses.

There are regulations for what can be called vodka and these regulations are different worldwide and even triggered some funny and heated debates at the European Parliament.

In 1774, Vodka became one of the main revenues of Russia and later a mean to control its market by allowing it to a certain class only and limit access for the rest of the population.

Dmitri Mendeleev was involved in the vodka business and his story is more close to myth than reality. Enjoy this funny but very interesting podcast and I am sure you will enjoy your time.
