Into the Echo-Chamber

Thank you for this and all your programs. Great work!

'Nuclear Hotseat' With Journalist:Libbe HaLevy. Review Written by Leslie Poplawski
I almost never miss Libbe HaLevy's 'Nuclear Hotseat'. Libbe's broadcast is presented in a manner which is comprehensible to ordinary people like me. Libbe even manages to bring a bit of humor, at times, making it interesting and never, ever, boring.
Libbe HaLevy interviews nuclear physicists, physicians, people who have had extensive experience within the industry and many, many other experts.
The information from her newscast educates, informs and is uncensored. A distinctive difference from most newscasts, that may be pressured by governments & the industries to broadcast little to nothing, regarding what is newsworthy within the nuclear energy and weapons industries. And there is much.
Also I have been educated on many historical issues regarding the history of nuclear energy, weapons, wars, testing, waste and so forth.
I am extremely grateful to Libbe and those she has interviewed, so that I (and others) finally, have the opportunity to learn about this subject in a manner that can hold my attention and that I can comprehended as well.
