Ukrainian Identity, The Mind of Putin, and Peak Car

As Russia’s military presence continues to grow in Ukraine, we look at the mindset of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and we discuss the cultural identity of Ukrainians. Also, the death of a 27-year-old assistant camera operator working on a film in Georgia has Hollywood craftspeople up in arms. We also talk about the latest political wranglings in Sacramento, now that Democrats have lost their supermajority. We look at the idea of “peak car,” and we look at the pseudo-science you may run into at your local grocery store.
