06/04/13 - Tuesday's Topical Currents is with nuclear historian Ward Wilson, author of FIVE MYTHS ABOUT NUCLEAR WEAPONS. Millions of American baby-boomers grew up haunted by the possibility of nuclear annihilation. After negotiations in the 1980s, both US and Soviet nuclear stockpiles were reduced. Wilson says the idea that that nuclear weapons have created a deterrence to war and contributed to negotiations is misleading. That’s Topical Currents at 1pm on WLRN-HD1 rebroadcast at 7pm on WLRN-HD2 and audio on-demand after the live program.
