This week’s episode of the Aaron Rupar Show features Tim Mak, founder and author of The Counteroffensive, discussing what it’s like to do independent human interest journalism from a warzone. We talk about the Ukrainian counteroffensive and what we know about its early progress, how Kyiv residents handle near-nightly missile strikes, the challenges involved in traveling around Ukraine to report these days, what Ukrainians are thinking and saying about US politics, and much more (including, briefly, Ukrainian McDonald’s).
Tim does vital work humanizing the war in Ukraine and The Counteroffensive is my favorite Substack publication right now, so you should subscribe to get his reporting directly in your inbox. Listen to our conversation above, or watch the footage below via my YouTube page. (And if you’d like to read the Q&A I did with Tim for the newsletter last month, click here.)
New episodes of the show drop each Thursday morning. Next week's will feature Simon Rosenberg, author of another favorite Substack of mine, Hopium Chronicles.
Please share the show with your friends to spread the word. And to support this work, consider upgrading to a paid subscription to Public Notice if you haven’t already.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a new newsletter. Until then, I hope you enjoy my pod with Tim.
