Aaron SteinThe Motorcycle Diaries: Japan’s Nuclear Program

Has the focus on the unlikely possibility of a nuclear-armed Japan distracted from more important policy challenges that threaten the shared interests of the United States and Japan in arms control, disarmament, and nonproliferation? Should policymakers take Japanese “nut-jobs” seriously? How has the domino theory of proliferation hindered more serious discussions about nuclear issues in allied states? And finally, how do Aaron and Jeffrey manage to live “glamorous jet-setting life-styles” while working as wonks (and thereby receiving “wonk style” salaries)?

Tune in to find out.

Jeffrey and Aaron discussed a number of articles during the podcast:

Jeffrey Lewis, “If Japan Wanted to Build a Nuclear Bomb it Would be Awesome at it,” Foreign Policy, June 26, 2014.
