The Atomic Show #072 – Interview with Dr. Jeremy Whitlock – creator of Canadian Nuclear FAQ
Dr. Jeremy Whitlock was one of the first nukes to recognize the value of web-based communications. He started the Canadian Nuclear FAQ in 1996. He is a second generation nuclear professional. Enjoy.
Dr. Jeremy Whitlock is a second generation nuclear profession who lives with his family in Deep River, a town he describes as an Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) company town. Others have talked about Deep River as the Canadian equivalent of Los Alamos.
Jeremy was one of the first nukes to recognize that the web was a powerful communications tool, especially for people whose voice is often not heard. As a nuclear professional living in a town full of PhD’s who like to sprinkle their conversation with terms like neutron and resonance absorption region, he did not feel that the general public was well informed about the technology that he has spent his life studying.
Topics in the conversation include Energy Alberta, DUPIC, Remembrance Day, ANS Winter Meeting (Washington DC November 10-15), used fuel plans in Canada, recycling, economics, atomic energy entrepreneurs, and several others.
I hope you enjoy the conversation.

Rod, enjoyed the show immensely. Living in Ottawa, I am especially curious about the Canadian Nuclear developments. And I’ve been curious about who owns Bruce power for a long time. Thanks…
I’ve enjoyed listening to your show for about a year. I saw this article in Nuclear News and thought about your small scale Brayton Cycle reactor.
Keep up the good work. Could you do a segment on AP1000 design sometime?
