Twice on Sunday: Ukrainian POV, Accidental Presidents, Spanish Languange US Media, China/Taiwan Is Not Russia/Ukraine, & more

1h 40m | Feb 12, 2023

On this Heard Tell Twice On Sunday:

We are turning to Zachary Yost, who has been writing about the threat of China taking military action against Taiwan, why Russia's Ukraine isn't a good comparision but the lessons that can be applied from it, and the difference between military, economic, and political deterents.

Writer & commentator Tania Rak on the war in her native Ukraine, escaping Mariupol, refugee crisis, Poland's assistance, how tech and social media have changed the propaganda war, and how her generation of Ukrainians now view freedom while fighting Putin's war of aggression in their country.

Sarah Stook returns to talk through her latest Elections Daily piece on accidental presidents; the vice president's that had to take over the presidency due to death or assassination, the varied ways they were sworn in (sometimes more than once) and how the office of VP has evolved over the years both through design and out of necessity.

Daniel Chang Contreras returns to Heard Tell to talk about how the political talk about "Spanish language outreach" is really recieved, how to do it right & what so many get wrong, how Spanish language news media coverage can be completely different than English speaking even when owned by same parent companies, and why understanding cultural differences is key to making political inroads in any language.
