About This Episode

This week: continued setbacks for Russia in Ukraine within territory Putin claims to have annexed, along with an update on global attitudes on the conflict. We’ll also turn to the UK in the aftermath of the Truss government’s disastrous mini-budget proposal, and what it could portend for the rest of her premiership. Finally, we’ll round out with a discussion on the US and China’s protracted efforts to secure global supply chains for critical microchip components.
