Episode notes

Interview with Nick Meyer, director of THE DAY AFTER.

Getting fired from the movie, censorship, sponsors fleeing, being pushed to depression and to thoughts of suicide - he tells us about the struggle to make the film.

And what was the reaction in the Pentagon and from Ronald Reagan? Did the White House make any demands?

He also talks about the insults thrown at him after broadcast.

My thanks to Nick Meyer for speaking to me via Zoom.
