The Terry Project Podcast #11: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

12:57pm - 1:57am

This week’s episode discusses anxiety around nuclear technology, including both weaponry and nuclear energy. We really upped our game here. We start with the little-known story of Vasili Arkhipov, who might have saved the world. Then, we speak to two nuclear scientists about nuclear energy. Next, we discuss nuclear technology and culture — from Strangelove to comic books. Finally, former US assistant secretary of defense, Lawrence Korb, calls in from the NATO summit in Chicago to discuss the Iranian nuclear program.
