Simple, accessible, robust

A consice and insightful series so far; I believe work like this is what we need to help fill the ignorant gap that characterizes the public's perception of Nuclear Power.

Clearly lays out the issues

All three of these initial podcasts are superb and important overviews of different aspects of the nuclear waste disposal challenge. They are clear, very easy to understand and yet pretty comprehensive overviews of the issues. Arjun Makhijani’s interview on technical options is very impressive but so is the podcast on why we have to break the storage impasse and challenges to building community consensus. I highly recommend these. Good job
