This week on SOTT Talk Radio we’re speaking with Dmitry Orlov, a Russian-American engineer and a writer on the subject of societal collapse.

Born in St. Petersburg, Orlov moved to the U.S. at the age of 12. Visiting his homeland between the late 1980s and mid-1990s, he was an eyewitness to the collapse of the U.S.S.R.

Orlov has written extensively on the stages leading up to collapse, and how different groups of people adapt to ‘the new normal’. Orlov argues that the U.S. is heading the same way, and that the U.S.S.R. had it easy compared to what’s in store for the Atlantic Empire.

Orlov is the author of two books Reinventing Collapse: The Soviet Example and American Prospects, and The Five Stages of Collapse: Survivors' Toolkit, and regularly publishes essays at his Club Orlov blog.

Join us from 2-4pm EST (11am-1pm PST, 8-10pm CET) this Sunday 18th May for a discussion on surviving the end of the world (as we know it!)
