Tomorrow night on PBS, I sit down with famed investigative journalist Eric Schlosser about his new book Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident and the Illusion of Safety. In the book, Schlosser reflects on the history of nuclear weapons, policy and safety in the United States.

In the clip below, Schlosser speaks to the continuing threat of nuclear weapons and why it is not on the public's radar despite President Obama's call for a ban.
