BONUS: Interview with Paul McCartney’s Russian Tutor, Aliona Muchinskaya

May 31, 2022

In this special bonus episode, we return to Russia with Paul along with the incredible Aliona Muchinskaya. Aliona is a Russian-born journalist and event creator who served as Paul’s Russian tutor, translator, assistant, and “chaperone” during his time in Moscow in 2003. She tells Allison about her first meeting with Paul, his prep for the 2003 Red Square concert, and his meetings with Putin and Gorbachev. A fascinating perspective on a singular event in Paul's career!

In case you missed it, go back and listen to our last episode, "CHOBA B CCCP: When Paul Met Putin," for more context on Aliona and on Paul's Russia concerts.
