Tatiana Klimova on turning her podcast into a successful paid community
June 8, 2023
My guest for this episode is Tatiana Klimova, founder of Russian Podcast and the Russian Dacha Community. She describes how she grew this project from a hobby into a full-time job.
She emphasizes the importance of being clear about who your community is for. By filtering out people who aren’t a good fit, she ensures that her members are enjoyable to work with.
She also feels it’s crucial to be open to criticism and listen to the needs of your audience. This has allowed her content to evolve over time based on feedback from her members.

About Tatiana Klimova
I’ve been teaching Russian since 2005. In 2008 I started recording dialogues that helped people to learn Russian through conversational phrases. This hobby then became my full-time job, taking form of Russian Podcast page and Russian Dacha Club. My website now contains more than 200 free dialogues, plus videos and podcasts every five days for Russian Dacha members.
I’m a passionate learner (currently studying Japanese). I like exploring new places, reading fiction as well as non fiction, playing backgammon, meeting my listeners. I am also a feminist and an active supporter of LGBT rights.
