Dr. William Graham returns to EMPact Radio to discuss a recent article in the New York Times about electromagnetic pulse, which has recently been brought to the forefront of attention of the American public in the context of the presidential debates, where Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, and Mitt Romney have included EMP in their security platforms. The Times article puts Mr. Gingrich on the hot seat with some claims about EMP that require correction and clarification. Drs. Graham and Pry will focus on the facts of EMP, not on the candidates.

Dr. Graham was a member of the Rumsfeld Commission on Space and served as Science Advisor to President Reagan and Chairman of the General Advisory Committee on Arms Control and Disarmament.

Dr. Graham has also served on the Defense Science Board. He was Chairman of the SDI Advisory Committee and Deputy Administrator of NASA. Dr. Graham chaired the EMP Commission for eight years, and is widely considered to be the free world's foremost expert on electromagnetic pulse.

Rob Underhill is the director of a new multi-season TV series in development, The Carrington Event. To help promote the series, the Featurette is slated for a January premiere. The official trailer was released recently and can be viewed at http://empactradio.org/pvp/episode79-rob-underhill/. Rob joins EMPact Radio to talk about the series, what he knew about electromagnetic pulse beforehand, and what he is learning through the process of making the series.
