#166 - Ukraine is a wake-up call

25 mins | Mar 15, 2022

Today's episode from 15th March 2022. "Ukraine is a wake-up call", so says one of the most prominent minds in the British military. General Sir Nick Carter stepped down as the head of the UK armed forces, but he has been sounding the alarm about Russia for months before the invasion. We hear what he has to say about the war, employing Cold War tactics and the media. Then later, we dig deep into the roots of our issues to discover why we get distracted. For The Financial Times, Helen Warrell sits down with the recently retired head of the UK’s armed forces. Amongst other burning topics posed to the longest-serving military chief since Lord Mountbatten, they discuss army culture, Afghanistan and how the west can reach out to Russians and counter Vladimir Putin. Resolving almost any problem requires us to get to the bottom of what is causing it and distracting habits are no exception. In this instalment of Nir and Far, Nir Eyal provides us with ways to define the root causes for our distraction that can sometimes lie deep within us. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
