The West has shown unity and commitment to Ukraine that would not have been forecast a year ago. But how does this conflict end?

Tune into this weekly podcast that breaks down international news and foreign policy developments without it feeling like homework. Each week, Tommy Vietor and Ben Rhodes walk you through the latest developments with a variety of experts and take you behind the scenes of big decisions with the people who were there. Count on hearing stories from the White House Situation Room, funny anecdotes, and maybe a few F-bombs along the way. New episodes every Wednesday.
