3CR community radio station in Melbourne started broadcasting in 1976. The Radioactive Show has been produced at the station for over 20 years and broadcast nationally through the national Community Radio Network. Dimity spoke with the Radioactive Show on 16 February to discuss recent events surrounding nuclear weapons diplomacy, disarmament and disagreement, including the USA and Russian suspension of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty, modernisation of nuclear arsenals and failures of nuclear weapon states to honour their obligations to disarm nuclear weapons. Dimity explains that there is a lot of bad news in this space right now, but also a lot of international advocacy and support for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, divestment campaigns, a global Cities Appeal gaining traction, and a growing impatience for a world free from nuclear weapons.
