Great discussions with nuclear experts!
Great discussions with nuclear energy experts! I’ve learned so much from listening to the podcast. Can’t wait for more episodes!
Technical Content, But an Excellent Introduction for Non-Technical Individuals
I accidentally came across this podcast and was intrigued with the title. My husband occasionally brings up the topic of nuclear power and I sometimes listen to Scott Adams who is enthusiastic about nuclear’s future. The topics covered are fascinating and I’ve learned so much. Thank you and keep providing great content!
Awesome Long Format Interviews with Experts
Really engaging interviews across the whole range of people supporting nuclear energy, medicine, etc. Very engaging interviews that thoroughly explain technical topics and take the concepts down to understandable levels, but still retain technical rigor. The optimism about the future gives me some hope for humanity!
