Worth Listening To : John Batchelor on WABC Radio

John Batchelor, who's on the air in New York on WABC Radio (available on the net here)weeknights from 10pm to 1am, has one of the most compelling (and disturbing) talk radio shows on the air. While people like me are reading about fonts and kerning, he's discussing nuclear weapons programs in North Korea and Iran. One of his comments (to crudely paraphrase): "Don't imagine that we can live with a nuclear Iran like we did with the Soviet Union. Don't think about a nuclear Soviet Union at the UN in the 50's looking for trade, think of the young Joseph Stalin with the bomb."

A very somber and very serious program. One that will keep you awake at night.
