Robert Amsterdam, Founder and Partner at Amsterdam and Partners joins us to discuss the first of three International issues for today: Ukraine, and specifically the slow evolution of Ukrainian President Zelensky towards operating as a dictator. The latest (in a growing list) of concerns is his violent efforts to shut down the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and replace it with a Ukrainian Government Approved alternative.

The Hon John Ruddick MLC has recently returned from attending the inauguration of President Javier Milei in Argentina! We continue our coverage of this remarkable moment in history, the first Libertarian head of state anywhere in the world in 2 generations. Up for debate is the likely success, or failure, of the reforms that President Milei is seeking to implement, and whether he can maintain the popular support of the Argentine people during the inevitable disruption which will follow.

The Aussie Wire are thrilled to announce a new addition to the team! North American Correspondent Julie Hartman! Julie joins us this episode to help us wrap our heads around some of the craziness that seems to have infected the USA in recent years. This time it’s a story close to Julie’s heart, as a recent Harvard graduate she has been following closely the saga of Claudine Gay, the now former President of Harvard, as her short-lived tenure was destroyed by a combination of factors, as the ‘revolution begins to eat its own’.
