How Did California's Fire Season Get So Destructive?

Another start to fire season, another reminder that we are living in a new, far more destructive normal.

Former Secretary of Defense William Perry on "The New Nuclear Arms Race"

It's now been 75 years since the nuclear attacks against Hiroshima and Nagasaki ushered in the beginning of the atomic age, but the threat of nuclear devastation is still very much with us. Our guests this week warn, though, that it’s not a sudden surprise attack that we should be most worried about, but instead, a sudden surprise mistake. Former Secretary of Defense William Perry and the Ploughshares Fund's Tom Collina join us to lay out that that warning and discuss their new book, “The Button: The New Nuclear Arms Race and Presidential Power from Truman to Trump." Guests: William Perry, a former secretary of defense and a professor of international relations at Stanford University Tom Collina, the policy director for the San Francisco-based Ploughshares Fund Host:Keith Menconi See omnystudio.com/policies/listener for privacy information.

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel on Which Country Is Getting Healthcare Right

The global Covid-19 pandemic is testing the healthcare systems of countries all around world, and this test is revealing an awful lot about what is working and what isn't.

Obviously that question is much bigger than even this crisis, but physician and bioethicist Ezekiel Emanuel takes it on in his new book, "Which Country Has the World’s Best Healthcare?” He joins us to discuss the answers he's found (spoiler alert: yes, there's more than one) and how those answers could guide reform here in the US. Guest:Ezekiel Emanuel, professor of medical ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania where he co-directs the Healthcare Transformation Institute. He was also a top health policy adviser in the Obama administration. Host:Keith Menconi See omnystudio.com/policies/listener for privacy information.
