This week, High Noon with Inez Stepman checks in on Russia’s war against Ukraine. It can be easy to forget, considering how many problems the United States faces at home, but the war has now been raging since February, heading into its sixth month. Stepman talks to the Wall Street Journal’s Jillian Melchior, who has done three on-the-ground reporting trips to the region since February. Stepman and Melchior spoke about how to sort out live-time digital war propaganda from fact, and how our $40 billion is being spent — or whether it’s getting to the intended target at all. We also spoke about what the war is doing to forge a stronger Ukrainian national identity and Europe’s frustrating inability to go to rehab for its addiction to Russian gas.

High Noon is an intellectual download featuring conversations that make possible a free society. The podcast features interesting thinkers from all parts of the political spectrum to discuss the most controversial subjects of the day in a way that hopes to advance our common American future.


Hosted by Inez Stepman of Independent Women’s Forum.
