A Conversation with Mikhail Gorbachev, 2005

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

In a Studio 2 interview from 2005, Steve Paikin talks to Mikhail Gorbachev about his country and the post-Cold War era he helped usher in. The former, and last, leader of the Soviet Union celebrated his 90th birthday this past March. While reflecting on this archival interview in 2012, Paikin wrote that Gorbachev was the "single most important person" he'd ever interviewed. Then, Hamilton-Niagara Ontario Hub journalist Justin Chandler finds a connection between Hamilton and the history of Canadian comic books.
