Friends, this week's Newsmaker Show covers so many scintillating topics that frankly my mind was blown. Your comparatively smaller minds might simply be vaporized! Nonetheless, I advise you to assume the risk and listen in.
In terms of current events, Brian and I cover the transition from Elizabeth II to Charles III, the persistence of inflation and its political consequences, Russia's reversal of fortune (?) in Ukraine, the DOJ's expanding dragnet focused on Trumpers of all stripes, NASDAQ's fondness for quotas, the insurrection (if I may call it that) at the New York Times, and more!
When we turn to This Day in History, Brian and I tackle the Soviet moon landing in 1959, Napoleon's conquest of Moscow (talk about an anti-climax!), and one of the bloodiest and most costly phases of the war in the Pacific in World War II.
Hot damn, what a show!
