This program started on 17 September 2007 with daily broadcasts (from Monday to Thursday from 16:00 to 17:00, and on Fridays from 16:00 to 18:00). The creators and broadcasters were the Bulgarian journalists Kin Stoyanov (son of the well-known Bulgarian satiric dissident writer Radoy Ralin) and Emil Yanev. In 2008, the program won the Bulgarian National Radio’s Sirak Skitnik annual prize.
The broadcasts were devoted to different cultural subjects, with an emphasis on the state socialist period. By inviting scholars, writers, and artists, Kin Stoyanov and Emil Yanev managed to deepen the critical debate on the totalitarian regime. Within the series, which attracted wide public interest, Bulgarians who opposed state socialism both within Bulgaria and in exile were presented. Through conversations Kin Stoyanov and Emil Yanev had with Boyko Kiryakov, several broadcasts in the 2012–2014 period were devoted to the life and work of Hristo Ognyanov and the Bulgarian political emigration.
