220. Adrian Bonenberger. An American Veteran in the Ukrainian Army. Why Is He Willing to Die for Ukraine? The Looming Spring Offensive. Tucker Carlson is Out. Don Lemon is Too. Biden is In. Trump is Up. Stupid Senators Smoke Vets Cannabis Bill. NFL Draft.


It’s on. This April, it’s on. All of it. The storms continue to pour. And the biggest storm of all still looms and gathers, as the world watches and braces for it. 

The spring offensive in Ukraine. It’s coming. 

We’ve all seen it gathering, we’ve all heard the reports, we’ll all watched the pieces come into place…and any day now….or maybe months from now…it will hit. Maybe more like a tectonic earthquake on a faultline than like a storm….it is coming. We just don’t know when. But it will be big. The biggest conventional war engagement we’ve seen since WW2.

And as we have for the last year, this show will keep a focus on Ukraine. Because in the midst of all the other storms happening this month, the war in Ukraine is the big one. And as we have for the last year, we’re not just gonna track it from a TV screen or from afar. We’re gonna take you inside of it. 

In our uniquely independent and experienced and authentic way. As only this show can. And with a returning champion. A brave and inspiring guest who joined us almost exactly one year ago this week. But one year ago, he was in Connecticut, trying to get people out of the storm in Ukraine. Working with his wife to get his wife’s parents out of the storm—out of Ukraine. 

And now, one year later, like helpers do, he’s running into the storm. And after getting others out, he’s gone back in. And he’s preparing and training many more to go even further in—into the biggest military engagement of our generation–maybe in two generations. 

He’s a father, he’s a former Army Ranger, he’s a professor, he’s a patriot, he’s an American—and a global citizen with a deep allegiance to all that is good and right. He’s a helper. And he’s a fighter. And as the storm of the century looms and gathers, he’s right in the middle of it. And he talked to us exclusively—in the calm, before the storm that will take countless lives and forever shape history. 

He’s a true American, Ukrainian, and global hero. He’s Adrian Bonenberger (@AdrianBonenber1). Coming to us exclusively from an undisclosed location inside Ukraine.
