President Zelensky admitted this week that Ukraine’s counteroffensive has been “difficult” and Fareed talks with Alina Polyakova, the President and CEO of the Center for European Policy Analysis, about why it hasn't yielded the results many expected. Then, the recent coup in Niger: Fareed speaks with the senior director of the Atlantic Council's Africa Center, Rama Yade, about what this will mean for a region already plagued by unrest. Fareed then asks Jason Furman, the former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, a question on many people's minds: how did the US avoid a recession? Plus, theoretical physicist Michio Kaku tells Fareed why he believes the next big technological revolution is not artificial intelligence, but quantum computing.

Guests: Alina Polyakova (@apolyakova), Rama Yade (@ramayade), Jason Furman (@jasonfurman), Michio Kaku (@michiokaku), Bruce Feiler (@BruceFeiler).
