This program provides listeners with a focused, half-hour masterclass on the big issues, events and trends driving news and current events. The show features Janice Gross Stein, the founding director of the Munk School of Global Affairs and bestselling author, in conversation with Rudyard Griffiths, Chair and moderator of the Munk Debates.

This week’s Munk Members podcast explores two stories in the news. First, Russian troops withdraw from areas around Kiev leaving a trail of war crimes in their wake. Is this a turn point in the conflict where more intervention is required to give the people of Ukraine the capacity to defend themselves against the risk of more atrocities to come? Second, the Canadian government releases the federal budget. What does the budget say about Canada’s commitment to increase military spending over the medium term? And, what if anything does the budget do to nudge the Canadian economy out of what seems like an increasingly deep growth and productivity rut?
