Ryan Lewellin is the host of the Cold War Cast, a podcast that chronicles the history of the Cold War and tries to tell as much of the story as possible through the pop culture of the time.
Ryan has also written an ebook with in-depth analysis of Red Dawn from his historical and military perspective called “Wolverines: Reflections on Red Dawn”.
Today Ryan and I discuss dystopian fiction and lessons from it, including Red Dawn, The Day After, 1984 and The Twilight Zone. We also discuss the mind set of people from the 50s-80s vs today in regard to the cold war threat, basic preparedness and other issues.
