RK - My guest tonight is Ward Wilson. He's the author of Five Myths about Nuclear Weapons and he's a senior fellow at the British American Security Information Council. I know Ward from way back and it's great to have him on the show again. We're going to talk about his work and we'll get into it in just a moment.

the transcript of the interview picks up with the last question I asked:

RK - I'm assuming that part of that is military expenses but a lot of it is private contractors probably General Electric and - who? What are the big companies that benefit that are going to be spending money on lobbying members of Congress?

WW - Well, you can find out by going to a website called dontbankonthebomb.com. It's an international effort to get people to divest from large corporations that make their money off nuclear weapons. Most nuclear weapons are made by organizations that are government funded. But some corporations like - I can't think of one right off the top of my head. Large corporations make their money by making things specifically for use with nuclear weapons. You can find out what those things are and what those corporations are and if you feel strongly about it you can insist that your University not invest its endowment in those corporations. Or your town retirement fund - employee retirement fund not invest in those corporations. Or you personally don't invest in those corporations. If you're lucky enough to have investments. I think it's a very clear way to send a message that says, "I don't think nuclear weapons are a good kind of weapon."

RK - Alright so I got to the website and I can read a quick list of some of them. Alliance Techsystems, Babcock and Wilcox, Bechtel, Boeing, GenCorp, General Dynamics, Honeywell International, Jacobson Engineering, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman.

WW - That's pretty much the usual suspects.
