(Recording Date: April 15, 2022)
In this episode:
Putin is still being Putin, so we’ll be taking a look at how the cretin screwed up the world since we last checked in on him, and how kickass Ukrainians are fighting him off.
We’ll finish it off with our blog page, Twitter feed, and podcast listener feedback.
War is never a light subject, but sometimes the world is an unpleasant place we have to take on, head on. So, take a deep cleansing breath, Kits and connect with your sense of inner peace.
We're here to help you through it.
Remember, we maintain our humour so as to not give ourselves permission to indulge in evil acts of our own.

Not everyone can do everything. But everyone can do something. Because we believe that “Democracy Is Something You Do”, this week we have two suggestions for you:
1) If you want to let a certain nation know you're not on its side, feel free to e-mail a package of sunflower seeds to:
ATTN: Ambassador Alexander Darchiev
Embassy of (you know where)
285 Charlotte St, Ottawa, ON K1N 8L5
2) As the price of food is rising, if you are able to help, please donate to your local food bank.
