About The Show

Written and narrated by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tim Weiner and created by the Peabody-nominated studio C13Originals, Whirlwind: America, Russia & Ukraine examines the ongoing war in Ukraine -- the worst war in Europe since WWII -- in interviews with decorated, high-ranking CIA veterans who have led the American intelligence war with Russia for decades. These experts explain how Putin laid the groundwork for attacking Ukraine using deception and disinformation, how Russian disinformation has been amplified by American media figures and politicians, and how American political warfare can undermine Putin and the Kremlin.
