What is scarier than the end of the world? For your spooky October listening we have an episode about what nearly became a real nuclear apocalypse, the Cuban Missile Crisis. It even took place around this time of year!
Join Becca and Rebecca as they discuss possibly the scariest moment of the 1960s, when the world nearly came to the brink of the abyss and made it through.
