First, Ukraine. Now, our heads. Crazy, wee Vladimir Putin is invading everything! Then ML, Marc and Shawn debate the Rochester Community Schools controversy while Joe says “This aggression will not stand, man!” 

THE STRAIGHT DOPE: The second biggest revelation about Putin’s invasion of Ukraine? He’s really short. Why does that matter? Good question! Listen and learn if we come up with an answer.

How might the invasion affect Joe Biden’s presidency? Would Putin have invaded if Donald Trump were still president? Should Barrack Obama take some blame? Drawing upon our expertise in geo-politics, we provide cogent commentary.

Rochester Community Schools officials and parents squared off in federal court over whether it was cool for the school to contact a parent’s employer. We discuss and debate and ML asks a question that he shouldn’t have had to ask in the first damn place!

GEEK OF THE WEEK: The guy who blames Greta and Leo for the invasion of Ukraine is more than a geek. But this is a family show, so that’s as far as we can go.

ROOM 7609: Marc spends a remarkable amount of time scouring the internet for a topical guest in our New Wave suite and comes up with Red Flag and “Russian Radio.”

FEEDBACK: We appreciate Emily and Dennis’ inquiring minds.
