372 - From Comedian to President?

April 05, 2019


This week’s ENW podcast focuses on a developing story from Eastern Europe, where Ukraine is voting to choose a new president. This seems run-of-the-mill, no? If one looked around the world, then most months of the year would find one country holding an election of some sort. So why is Ukraine different? Well that is because the man leading the votes is a 41-year-old professional comedian. And what is more interesting is that he is famous in Ukraine for starring in a popular comedic TV show where is plays the president! Will he actually win?
