Producer Lawrence Bender on Countdown to Zero (AUDIO)

The world is going to end. We've heard it all before but in producer, Lawrence Bender's riveting new documentary, Countdown to Zero, it offers a solution that falls back in the hands of each and everyone of us. Going beyond the threat of nuclear weapons of mass destruction, Bender hopes that his film will inspire thought and awareness about a growing problem that is not unsolvable.

In my interview with Bender, the producing partner of Quentin Tarantino, he discusses this passionate new project and what he says we can do to stop the inevitable.
