More often than not the City Voice Podcast discusses issues that are thought of as local. Urban planning, how we interact with local officials, mobility issues…
Well in the last couple of days North Korean Missiles just got local for most of America.
My guest is Joe Cirincione.
I decided to call Joe after seeing him on the Rachel Maddow show. The segment was kicked off with the news of Hawaii restarting it’s attack siren program for the first time since the U.S. was in the in the Cold War with the Soviets.
It was this kind of local action that really made it real for me. The City Voice Podcast started this discussion last August when I interviewed the Editor of The Pacific Daily News in Guam. At the time the concern was for a U.S. territory in the middle of the Pacific and for our friends in Japan.
That concern remains but now it’s here too.
