Senator Richard Lugar podcast interview

This week Austin and Eric discussed Dr. Strangelove, perhaps the movie everybody thinks about when they think of nuclear war. While Stanley Kubrick used the fear of nuclear consequences for dark comedy, it still made the guys think about the reality of the nuclear weapons in the real world. What exactly is our relationship between the US and Russia when it comes to these weapons?

So we sat down with one of the world’s leading experts on the topic. Richard Lugar is a six-term US Senator who has spent almost all of his career working on nuclear disarmament. In this interview, Austin talked with Senator Lugar and heard about the incredible stories about how he got involved in this important issue, what his trips were like to Russia and what we should be worried about looking forward. It’s truly a fantastic way to go beyond the movie.
