Monday, Doug sits down with author Richard Rhodes, one of the foremost historians on the nuclear age. Rhodes is in town for a reading of his play "Reykjavik." It's about the 1986 summit between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, when Russia and the US began the process of reducing their nuclear arsenals. Rhodes says he was dazzled at the richness of the debate that went on between the two men and writing a play was a chance to reveal what happened behind closed doors. We'll talk about that meeting and its legacy today.
