Coming up on Washington Week with The Atlantic:

The American government on the brink of shutdown: With the federal government about to run out of money, we explore how the country got to this point, who will be affected, and how U.S. support for Ukraine has become a divisive political issue.

Joining editor in chief of The Atlantic and moderator, Jeffrey Goldberg, to discuss this and more:

  • Anne Applebaum, Staff Writer, The Atlantic
  • Peter Baker, Chief White House Correspondent, The New York Times
  • Leigh Ann Caldwell, anchor Washington Post Live and Co-Author “The Early 202”
  • Asma Khalid, White House correspondent, NPR and co-host of The NPR Politics Podcast 

Major funding for “Washington Week” is provided by Consumer Cellular, the estate of Arnold Adams, the Yuen Foundation, Sandra and Carl DeLay-Magnuson, Rose Hirschel and Andy Shreeves, Robert and Susan Rosenbaum, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and PBS.
