Moves By Russia And Saudi Arabia Heighten Global Nuclear Anxiety, Conditions In Venezuela Are Rapidly Deteriorating, And Global Activism: Naperville’s Brett Weiss Offers Opportunity For Children In Dago, Kenya
On today's show:
- Saudi Arabia and Russia are increasing global anxiety over nuclear proliferation. We talk about the implications of the Russian and Saudi nuclear moves with Joseph Cirincione, president of the Ploughshares Fund, a non-proliferation NGO.
- Despite Venezuela being one of the Western hemisphere’s most oil-rich countries, most Venezuelans can’t afford basic commodities like food. We discuss the ongoing crisis with David Smilde, senior fellow at the Washington Office on Latin America, and Verónica Zubillaga, associate professor of Behavioral Sciences and Technologies at Simón Bolívar University in Caracas.
- For our weekly Global Activism segment, Brett Weiss explains his efforts to establish a scholarship fund to help deserving children in Dago, Kenya get through high school.
