Nukes of Hazard: 60 Years of Atomic Accidents
Wednesday, 6 July
As the world looks to alternative sources of energy, are we ready for the growth of nuclear power? Do we understand the risk that comes with atomic technology? Historian and author Serhii Plokhy joins Arthur Snell to discuss his new book Atoms and Ashes: From Bikini Atoll to Fukushima, which looks at six nuclear disasters that shook the world, and the lessons we can learn from them.
“The history of nuclear disasters is very relevant to us today.”
“Every nuclear accident produces a pause in the industry as people get scared.”
“If we are not prepared to tolerate nuclear accidents then we have to look for alternative energy sources.”
Presented by Arthur Snell. Group Editor: Andrew Harrison. Lead Producer: Jacob Jarvis. Producers: Jacob Archbold, Jelena Sofronijevic and Alex Rees. Music by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Robin Leeburn. The Bunker is a Podmasters Production.
