Happy birthday to RadioNuclear! The podcast, sponsored since 2019 by ANS, turned two years old earlier this month. The host, Doug Hardtmayer, and the Society would like to thank everyone who continues to listen and support the show!
Discussed this week:The events that may have led to the release of radioactivity in Russia back in August, and also Hardtmayer takes a moment to reflect on the defueling of the Sellafield MAGNOX reactors.
