From and

Former weapons inspector Hans Blix on the loose nuclear material that the just-ratified 'New START' can't address, and how best to avoid (or instigate!) uncomfortable conversations about politics when going home for Christmas. Also, teen birth rates in the U.S. drop for the second year, bringing the number to an all-time low; Jane Smiley on John Atanasoff, "The Man Who Invented the Computer"; country singer Robbie Fulks on Christmas season for atheists; an analyst warns of potential financial danger as cash-strapped cities edge towards defaulting on municipal bonds; and "Remixing the Holidays" continues with jazz man Carlos Lando.

Majora Carter guest hosts with John Hockenberry.
