Listen now
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited Washington D.C. on Thursday to meet with President Biden and Senate leaders.

Murdoch’s exit caps a controversial, decades-long career that ultimately gave rise to the far-right discourse we see today. And in headlines: House Republicans once again failed to advance legislation on federal spending as the government shutdown deadline looms, India announced it has suspended visa services for Canadians, and free COVID tests by mail are coming back.
