The Atomic Show #163 – Four Women in Nuclear Energy
On February 15, 2011, I gathered together a terrific group of four women who are each making a significant contribution to the expansion of nuclear energy and nuclear knowledge in the United States. I hope you enjoy the conversation and the stories.
Meredith Angwin blogs at Yes Vermont Yankee and is the Director of the Ethan Allen Energy Education Project.
Gwyneth Cravens is the author of Power to Save the World: The Truth About Nuclear Energy.
Julie Ezold is the Californium Program Manager for the Nuclear Material Processing Group at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Margaret Harding runs 4 Factor Consulting after working for nearly 30 years as a nuclear core design engineer for GE.

Great stories. Of course, anyone graduating in nuclear in the 80s was considered stark raving mad no matter the gender. Congratulations on many years of highly rewarding insanity. 😉
Have read descriptions of your podcasts, but can’t hear them due to deafness (possibly the result of radiation treatments on my ears as a child!) But I am not commenting to complain, rather just want to say that I like your site, your show title and topics. The ‘expansion of nuclear knowledge’ is indeed a great need and thanks for doing something valuable to fill in the gap.
