Jennifer Leaning, M.D., National Executive Committee Member of Physicians for Social Responsibility, describes the problem of understanding the concept of civil defense in regard to nuclear war when survival is questionable.

The recordings and excerpts were produced by Raffaelo Mazza and Bob Rufsvold, KPFK. All have intros, none have outros.
