545 - The Nuclear Episode
Play • 53 min

John talks with Joan Rohlfing (Nuclear Threat Initiative, U.S. Department of Energy) and author/reporter David E. Hoffman (Washington Post) about nuclear energy, nuclear safety and nuclear war — both the current reality and how these issues are portrayed in Hollywood.

Joan and David explain how the nuclear landscape has changed over the decades, the stories Hollywood has missed, and the importance of getting them right moving forward.
