In this episode, we aced our foreign service exam and started our undercover mission to the movie Spies Like Us (1995). How well does this comedy deploy a Soviet road mobile nuclear missile for hilarious effect? Can you actually recall a nuclear missile once it is in the air? Doctor, doctor, doctor, doctor, doctor, doctor, doctor, and doctor. Tim Westmyer (@NuclearPodcast) and Gabe answer these questions and more.

Before we open up the nuclear disarmament negotiation board game box, we recommend:
-Fletch, 1985
-The Man Who Knew Too Little, 1997
-International Spy Museum
-Nuclear War Card Game, 1965
-Steven Pomeroy, An Untaken Road: Strategy, Technology, and the Hidden History of America’s Mobile ICBMs, 2016
-Get Smart, 1965-1970 TV Show
