Greetings, everyone. As President Trump and “Little Rocket Man” square off, nuclear weapons again return to the headlines. This week’s Rostrum features Jonathan Granoff, president of the Global Security institute. He’s one of the world’s leading experts on disarmament. We talked about why North Korea is less of a threat than we think, the big risks in the India/Pakistan conflict, the U.S. nuclear arsenal, and how to save the world from total annihilation.
