In the near term aftermath of The Great East Japan Earthquake, Amelia Timers of The Energy Collective asked Dan Yurman, who blogs at Idaho Samizdat and ANS Nuclear Cafe and me to join her for a discussion about the events that were happening at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear station. She and the staff had developed a number of questions that they wanted us, as active nuclear energy bloggers, to answer. They realized at the time that they were not getting fully accurate information from the advertiser supported media.
For a variety of reasons, The Energy Collective never got around to publishing the show. During a recent chat with Amelia, I asked her if she still had the file and if I could have permission to publish it as an Atomic Show podcast. Fortunately, Amelia is as much of a pack rat when it comes to computer files as I am.
Here is the show. As I said in the introduction, I am quite proud of the quality of the information and the advice that Dan and I were able to offer fairly soon after the events began to unfold. I would like to challenge other information sources who commented on the event in the early days to go back and listen to what they told people and compare that to what actually transpired.
