"Broadcasting live from the Victory Theater in downtown Irkutsk, it's The at Home Field Guide, brought to you by Soviet Free Radio Order. Today your hosts buck the chaos and mounting panic to bring you an American story of first love and first heartbreak, along with the musical stylings of Alexei ‘Tumbleweed’ Petrovya. Tune in, take heart--and be careful out there, friends."

In an alternate global history, the cold war was decided not by détente, not by nuclear holocaust, but by massive robot invasion. Among the survivors, a team of Russian radio hosts, warmed to a lost culture of 1950s Americana, broadcast a story of brothers’ love drawn straight from the American heartland. Samuel and Alasdair: A Personal History of the Robot War combines 1950s radio drama, vintage country music, and Soviet science for a look back in time and forward to what's next.
