Alex Wellerstein is a historian of science at the Stevens Institute of Technology and the creator of NUKEMAP, an interactive map that calculates the effects of the detonation of a nuclear bomb. He joins Joe Cirincione for a special interview on the history of nuclear weapons, deterrence theory, and why we never really left the ‘first’ nuclear age. Ploughshares Fund Programs Director Michelle Dover hosts Early Warning with our policy director Tom Collina and special guest Caroline Dorminey, policy director at Women’s Action for New Directions (WAND). They discuss Iran’s seizure of a British oil tanker, nuclear weapons spending within the context of upcoming negotiations on the US government budget and debt ceiling, and the recent passing of Yukiya Amano, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
