(Short Cuts) Ukraine’s Night Train to the Front Lines




About this episode

As we cross the one-year anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, former Canadaland producer Sarah Lawrynuik returns to Short Cuts to talk with Jonathan about why she became a freelance war correspondent, taking night trains to the front lines.

They also look at China’s reported interference in Canada’s elections & why our institutions tend to throw up their hands the moment they encounter even slightly sophisticated malfeasance.

Host: Jonathan Goldsbie
