On this episode journalist Spencer Ackerman joins us to discuss the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the myriad geopolitical issues that both led to this and resulted in its wake, what it’s like to cover a warzone on the ground, the sympathetic coverage for Ukrainian refugees that has not traditionally been afforded to Middle Eastern refugees and more.

Spencer’s book ‘Reign of Terror: How the 9/11 Era Destabilized America And Produced Trump’ is a fantastic book and available here.
