This Special Edition episode tells the story of the closest we've ever come to nuclear war and how one hero saved the day in 1983. Had Stanislav Petrov not listened to his gut, today would have been very different.
We are fascinated by the life-changing "brink of midnight" moments in the lives of our guests, luminaries across the worlds of sport, entertainment, business, tech, philanthropy, and beyond. We also believe these moments happen in our collective human history and our shorter format Special Edition episodes chronicle stories that have shaped our shared experience in profound ways.
We hope you enjoy these bite-sized stories that you may not have heard. We can impact our own lives more than anyone, but sometimes our decisions change the course of the world.
