We check in on the latest out of Ukraine as Russian attacks continued through the weekend, with the help of a political science professor. Then, we learn more about the impact volunteers have on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources from the DNR volunteer coordinator. Later, a journalist joins us to explore the biases in the way we cover the war in Ukraine.

Latest developments in Russia's war in Ukraine
Russia has attacked a nuclear energy facility in Ukraine, and the two countries have agreed to a cease-fire in certain areas to let civilians evacuate. We’ll talk about the latest developments in the war with an expert on international relations and armed conflict.
How volunteers enhance Wisconsin parks and trails
The Wisconsin State Park System launched a new online system to make the volunteering process easier. We learn about what opportunities are available and what impact volunteers make.
Implicit bias in how we talk about — and report on — the war in Ukraine
The Arab and Middle Eastern Journalists Association is among the voices who have been critical of Western media coverage of the war in Ukraine. We talk with one of the association’s board members about their view of bias in language that implies Ukrainian victims are somehow better than victims of other wars.
