For thirteen day in October 1962, the world stood on the brink of a nuclear war. This was the event humans had been dreading since the dropping of the first atomic bombs in 1945, the stuff of 1950s sci-fi movies.
How did we get that close to such a nightmare? What pulled us back from the brink? I tell the story on my podcast, which you can access by clicking on the Anchor.fm icon on this web page or by going to Anchor.fm/rebeccapricejanney. The podcast is also available across many different platforms, including Sticher, Google, and Apple Podcasts.

"October Sky" is one of my favorite movies. Have you ever seen it? Based on the book by Homer Hickam, the film tells the story of the night his world changed. On October 4, 1957 the Russians launched Sputnik, the first space satellite, and Americans were afraid, very afraid. But they were also inspired. My podcast is about that epochal event.
Please share any memories, or let me know if you've seen "October Sky."
