Summary – The War in Ukraine: A Short Introduction
Happy bonus Thanksgiving episode! I wanted to organize my thoughts on the current war in Ukraine and, on this episode, I look at a few short articles and narrate an introductory overview that explains my current understanding of the conflict. The media, the military industrial complex, political interests, and history all shed light on the reason for US involvement in this eastern European conflict. As always, it is much more complicated than we have been led to believe. Take a listen while you are preparing yourself for the holiday festivities!
