"Very interesting discussions on a very important topic."

"Very in-the-weeds discussion about nuclear weapons and military rockets - a topic that rarely sees public detail. The hosts speak plainly about the legal, political, technical and cultural details involved in understanding the daily news around the world's most destructive capabilities. I'm not sure where else I'd ever be able to get this kind of detail in terms I can understand."
