Good evening, listeners! We have a great show for you today as host Richard Aldous speaks with John Fonte about the case for Britain leaving the EU, before turning to Marius Laurinavicius to discuss the problem of Putin’s propaganda.

First, Hudson Institute senior fellow John Fonte argues that democratic self governance is the number one issue at stake in the upcoming Brexit vote. Tune in for a spirited discussion on the pros and cons of this divisive issue before Britain votes on Thursday.

Then, Marius Laurinavicius, a Lithuanian journalist currently in the U.S. as a Baltic American Freedom Foundation Security Research Scholar, discusses a new film by the popular Russian director Andrei Nekrasov, formerly a harsh critic of Vladimir Putin, that seeks to discredit American businessman Bill Browder and his murdered lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, looking at what this about-face says about the state of Russian propaganda.
