Ralph greets Princeton classmate and nuclear non-proliferation expert, Ambassador Thomas Graham, a former senior U.S. diplomat, who was involved in the negotiation of every single international arms control and non-proliferation agreement from 1970 to 1997. Also, the original Nader’s Raider, Robert Fellmeth rejoins us to talk about the campaign to protect children on Facebook.


Thomas Graham is a former senior U.S. diplomat, who was involved in the negotiation of every single international arms control and non-proliferation agreement from 1970 to 1997. This includes SALT Treaties, the START Treaties, the Anti-ballistic missile (ABM) Treaty and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. He was president Bill Clinton‘s special representative for Arms Control, Non-Proliferation, and Disarmament. Throughout his career, Ambassador Graham has worked with six U.S. Presidents, including Presidents Richard Nixon Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton.  His book is entitled The Alternate Route: Nuclear Weapons Free Zones.

“It’s a country (North Korea) that’s probably never going to give up its nuclear weapons short of the world giving up its nuclear weapons.”

Robert Fellmeth is a Professor of Public Interest Law at the University of San Diego School of Law and executive director of the Center for Public Interest Law. His areas of expertise include child advocacy/children’s rights, consumer law, family law and professional responsibility. He recently contributed an op-ed to the Washington DC newspaper, The Hill, entitled “Millions of Strangers Can See Facebook Posts By and About Your Kids.” 

“The problem is a term and condition in the Facebook agreement, which of course nobody ever reads. It applies to teen subscribers, who theoretically cannot have contracts held against them. But theoretically, by subscribing… they have consented to the capture of anything in a post, whether it be a photograph, a comment or whatever, and it’s re-transmission to anybody by Facebook for any purpose whatsoever.”
