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.
Norm’s song pick:: Decay by HOME
Leigh’s song pick:: Hallogallo by Neu!
Peter’s song pick:: Soviet Anthem by The Red Army Choir
