In The Moment ... Remembering The Cuban Missile Crisis
Tim McKeown

In the Moment ... October 12, 2017 Show 197 Hour 1

In October of 1962, America was perched on the edge of nuclear war. We call it the Cuban Missile Crisis. In Cuba, it's the October Crisis. Today we look back at the crisis and we ask the questions: Is it possible to get ourselves into a situation like this again? Are we there already? We’re joined by Tim McKeown, Professor of Political Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Chris is a producer for In the Moment.
