Museum Open House - Atomic Alert!: Confronting "The Bomb" in the New Atomic Age

Jay talks with Michael Scheibach, PhD. Michael is an educator, author, speaker, and noted authority on the early atomic age and the Cold Way. Recently, he served as the curator of the fascinating exhibition entitled Atomic Alert!: Confronting "The Bomb" in the New Atomic Age, which is currently on display at the Museum of Russian Icons until August 8th. During the program, we'll be finding out why and how Atomic Alert! came about, we'll go on a behind the scenes tout of the exhibition, and in the process, come to better understand and appreciate the political, social, and historical context of this 20th Century time period.
