He became a catalyst for non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and peace movements around the world, founding the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs and eventually winning the Nobel Peace Prize. This 5-episode podcast follows the discussions and debates inspired by screenings of The Strangest Dream, a film about Rotblat's life and work dedicated to world peace.
