Challenges lie ahead for efforts to restart dialogue between the world's nuclear powers, stop the production of new nuclear weapons, and re-think the US nuclear posture review. 

This week on Press the Button, we present an exclusive look at the future of US nuclear policy, taken from a special briefing Ploughshares Fund hosted at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on October 23. 

"We are at a very dangerous point right now. We are in an arms race ... nobody is talking about the danger of that and how to control it," said Congressman Adam Smith (D-WA), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.

About Press the Button: in addition to "The Interview" in which Joe Cirincione sits down with prominent thinkers, legislators, activists, and grantees working on nuclear weapons issues for a short, illuminating conversation, episodes have two other segments: "Early Warning" — a round-up of the most pressing nuclear news in 7 minutes, roughly the same amount of time the US president has to authorize a nuclear weapons launch in the event of an incoming attack on the United States; and "In the Silo" — a monthly, close-up look at key nuclear issues and events around the world, utilizing field recordings, media clips, interviews, and extensive narration.
