Thank you for joining us for RadioNuclear Episode 17! In this podcast, we discuss a fascinating new poll out of Japan where a survey shows that residents are warming up to nuclear again. We also discuss the new loan guarantees for the Vogtle Construction project and talk a bit about the historical decommissioning of the Sturgis floating nuclear reactor.
Today’s guest is Ed McGinnis, the principal deputy assistant secretary for the Office of Nuclear Energy. The Office is responsible for conducting research on current and future nuclear energy systems, maintaining the government’s nuclear energy research infrastructure, establishing a path forward for the nation’s spent nuclear fuel and high-level nuclear waste management program, and a host of other national priorities.
