get ready to hear new stories.

so, now the old recordings are posted, not all but those which are closely related to my upcoming stories as i continue telling the story of my life. it will be a good idea to listen to the old recordings, all of them, to understand the following stories better. there’s already around three hours of new recordings about my travels across entire soviet russia, mostly in the time frame between 1989 and 1997, with some travels even earlier, in my country which was then part of soviet russia.

before i will publish the recent recordings, some more editing is to be done yet, for a better listening experience. i tested different recording options and i didn’t care too much about telling my story smoothly on one go. now i must pay for it with extra editing work to cut out bad sound and long pauses, with some repeatings as i struggled to find the correct words to express myself better. thus, as long as i’m messing around with different editing apps for the best result and the most comfortable editing work, you can listen to my older recordings about my time in soviet russian army and about my business life after the army, during the collapse of the soviet union when there was plenty of criminal activity around to deal with, in all levels of the society..

the podcast..

the video channel..

my books, all free to download and permitted to share..

meanwhile i also keep thinking on some issues in different sciences, and try to put some relations of physical phenomena into written form, to publish as articles. right now my main focus is to understand gravity. today morning i already wrote an article about it, but decided not to publish it yet. each time after publishing an article on the blog immediately there show up grammatical errors, as i realize how others may understand me differently not living inside my mind. i must read my writings over tens of times, correcting the wording, for there to be little chance to understand me wrong. if you have recently received emails (as a subscriber) with my science articles, then it will be a good idea to revisit the articles now on the blog — i have rewritten some of the articles, correcting the syntax and adding clarifying comments, to make my point absolutely clear. all the effort is directed to minimize the possibility for misunderstandings.

beginning with podcasts.. on

first i’m posting the sound files extracted from the stories which i told on camera. i may be testing several podcast platforms, but as i’m already familiar with then i will first be uploading my stories there. about a year ago i had a few stories up there, but deleted them since i was not sure if i wanted to continue. times were very busy as well. as a year has passed, then the app may have some technical changes now, thus i’m calling it a testing time again, before i will post any recent sound recordings on the podcast.

my account on castbox..

the new podcast..

i’m not sure if i can create an exclusive name for the castbox account and/or the podcast, but i will look into it later. so far you can already enjoy the stories in sound only.. you can download the stories to listen offline, to speed up and to slow down playback as you like, use internal volume booster of the app and so on.. whatever is more convenient to you..

intro to my stories..

the russian army, my story (part 1 of 2).

the russian army, my story (part 2 of 2).

probably you will be asked to download the app, as i have noticed, trying to play the stories in browser. a year ago it was not required. if you don’t want to install the app then there’s a way around it: go to the site in a browser and search for “youthextension” (one word), then go to my podcast without installing the app (cancel if asked) and listen to my podcast there. if you use the direct links to the stories or the podcast or the YE account which i provided above, then most likely you will be directed to install the app first.

anyway, it is an excellent app — you can add widget on the screen and to listen to the podcasts like on music apps. maybe even lock-screen playback option is still available.. will see, i need time to figure it all out, because some other things need to be taken care as well now.
