The Threat to America — from Our Own Nuclear Weapons

Hosted by

America's nuclear arsenal has been subject to a terrifying number of accidents, miscalculations and inexplicable blunders, without a devastating catastrophe — so far. We talk with investigative reporter Eric Schlosser about how close we've come, how little the public's been told, and whether we're safer now than we used to be. Also, the Washington stalemate and how it happened, and the latest hot-button issues heading to the US Supreme Court in its new term.
