Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Across the planet vast landscapes are contaminated by the legacy of the nuclear age. From Hiroshima to Hanford and Chernobyl to Fukushima, the growing legacy of lethal radioactive waste has created vast exclusion zones where people have been permenantly forced from their homes.

On this episode of Locus Focus, we talk with Fred Pearce, author of Fallout: Disasters, Lies, and the Legacy of the Nuclear Age. This tour of toxic radioactive wastelands around the world that reveals how humanitys struggle to conquer atomic energy is rife with secrecy, deceit, human error, blatant disregard for life, short-sighted politics, and fear.

Fred Pearce has reported on environmental, science, and development issues from eighty-five countries over the past twenty years. Environment consultant at New Scientist from 1992 to 2018, he also writes regularly for the Guardian newspaper and Yale Universitys prestigious e360 website. His many books include The New Wild, When the Rivers Run Dry, With Speed and Violence, Confessions of an Eco-Sinner, The Coming Population Crash, and The Land Grabbers.
