Joseph Rotblat, Pugwash & Nuclear War

A scientist with the Manhattan Project racing to develop the first nuclear bomb, Joseph Rotblat quit in protest, believing nuclear weapons were no longer needed to win World War II.

He became a catalyst for non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and peace movements around the world, founding the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs and eventually winning the Nobel Peace Prize. This first of a 5-episode podcast follows the discussions and debates inspired by screenings of The Strangest Dream, a film about Rotblat’s life and work dedicated to world peace.
