US-Russia tensions: ‘Most Americans are tired of war!’ & ‘Biden isn’t doing enough to save US democracy!’ (E1005)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Dr. Jason Nichols, senior lecturer in African-American studies at University of Maryland and host of ‘Vince and Jason Save the Nation’. He discusses rising tensions between the US, its NATO allies and Russia over Ukraine, the comparison of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Adolf Hitler on US news outlets, why Biden will likely keep the US out of any conflict, voting rights and democracy being under attack in the US with inaction from President Joe Biden, and much more! Finally, we speak to Matthew Hodson, executive director of aidsmap. He discusses his friendship with the late David Stuart, the pioneer of the term ‘chemsex’, widely lauded for his work at 56 Dean Street and the Club Drug Clinic. He also talks about the uphill climb to develop a HIV vaccine, the changing prevalence of HIV in LGBTQ community and the heterosexual community, and much more.
