Wind of Change

Jul 06 2020 38 mins 10.2k

It’s 1990. The Berlin Wall just fell. The Soviet Union is on the verge of collapse. And the soundtrack to the revolution is one of the best selling songs of all time, the metal ballad “Wind of Change,” by the Scorpions. Decades later, journalist Patrick Radden Keefe heard a rumor: the song wasn’t written by the Scorpions. It was written by the CIA. This is his journey to find the truth. Wind of Change is an Original Series from Pineapple Street Studios, Crooked Media and Spotify.

Never thought I'd enjoy a podcast about the CIA and the Scorpions, but it's great.

Propaganda and lies repeated lovingly by a CIA Operation Mockingbird fake news "journalist". The band leader says he wrote the song Wind of Change but the lies of CIA Criminals & are repeated by New Yorker's deep state loving Patrick Radden Keefer on "Crooked Media" owned by Barack Obama's speech writer. Fake stories for Democrats new Cold War.

Great story. Unlike xansky, I don't think an answer was needed. It was a fun listen.

Jingoistic murrican bullshit. Name dropping bro host who's in love with the CIA and American empire. Some mildly interesting interviews interrupted by said useless bro when someone threatens to say something of value.

Amaazing podcast! The Moscow Music Peace Festival is one of the biggest references from my teen years, and this was a delight to listen. Everything, from the production, the delivery...well done. Riveting!

Interesting premise with no conclusion. This podcast goes on and on, but ultimately never answers the question that is it's reason for existing. Don't waste your time.
