Episode 20: Chernobyl - Part 1

Every story needs context.  In part one of our two-part series on the Chernobyl disaster, we start at the dawn of the atomic age.  Our special guest Nuclear Norm gives us a "nuclear physics for dummies" introduction to the history of nuclear power.  Little Boy, Fat Man, uranium, plutonium, and the shocking death of a nuclear physicist in a very non-laboratory accident.  Join us as we tee up the events to come in 1986 Soviet Ukraine.
