Podcast: One Year After The Protests

"Swindlers And Thieves, Return The Elections" -- An opposition rally in Moscow on December 10, 2011.
It has been a year since Russia's season of dissent kicked off in earnest following the disputed State Duma elections on December 4, 2011.

The new edition of "The Power Vertical Podcast" takes a look back at the past year and ahead to what we may expect in 2013, with co-hosts Mark Galeotti of New York University and Sean Guillory of the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Russian and Eastern European Studies.
