David Perry on Word By Word – April 12, 2020

In the midst of the pandemic, you may not be aware that the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists re-set their so-called ‘Doomsday Clock’ to 100 seconds before midnight—the closest the clock has ever been to catastrophic nuclear annihilation. That recalibration is the focus of one of the episodes of Nuclear educator David Perry’s soon to launch podcast At The Brink.”

Word By Word host Gil Mansergh welcomes David Perry to the show for an engaging chatt about what is involved in being the education director for the Former US Secretary of defense’s  William J. Perry Project and coordinating the development of a brand new podcast series.

Perry, the son of former US Secretary of Defense, William Perry, is the Education Director of the William J. Perry Project and former professor of Pharmacology and Physiology at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. His current project is the creation and evolution of a podcast entitled At the Brink. “It’s a show about the risk of nuclear disaster- how close we’ve come and how close we still are today.”
