Corruption concerns in Ukraine prompt government shakeup; breaking down the stigma around men in nursing; and Paul Salopek on reasons for optimism, and walking around the world
A corruption scandal in Ukraine has forced several key government officials to resign or be dismissed, amid allegations of profiteering off the war. Matt Galloway talks to Politico Europe reporter Veronika Melkozerova; and Tymofiy Mylovanov, former Ukrainian minister of economic development and now president of the Kyiv School of Economics.
Then, a recent shift at a hospital in St John's was unusual in one particular ward: all the nurses were men. We discuss why male nurses are still in the minority with Brandon Smith and Ryan Spear, who were on that shift; and Peter Kellett, a registered nurse and an assistant professor in nursing at the University of Lethbridge.
And we continue our Reasons for Optimism series with Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Paul Salopek, who is travelling through China on foot. The National Geographic fellow has spent ten years walking the 35,000-kilometre route of ancestral human migration, from Africa to the southern tip of South America.
