This Week’s Featured Interviews:

  • Radioactive waste dump connection between Yucca Mountain and West Texas explored and exposed by Ian Zabarte, Principal Man for the Western Bands of the Shoshone Nation.  He rips apart the recent decision by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to approve a high level “interim” nuclear waste dump in West Texas and brings to the fore a range of Native American issues long-overlooked by the NRC and the nuclear industry in connection with this nuclear sacrilege.

  • Dave Kraft of Nuclear Energy Information Service (NEIS) gives us the latest unfortunate update in the ongoing saga of taxpayer-funded bailouts of unprofitable for-profit Exelon nuclear reactors in Illinois.  Then he lets us know what’s being planned for the nuclear honey-pot of Congress in the proposed Build Back Better Act. It’s not a pretty picture!

Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):

The United Nations’ COP 26 conference on the climate crisis has for the first time banned nuclear groups from presenting their propaganda.  No, that’s not the “numnutzery” – it’s the nuclear industry crying in its beer over not being allowed to crash the party! 




New Website coming!

A personal note to everyone that the new website for Nuclear Hotseat now has the wireframe (structure) secured.  Next step: fill in the blanks with tons of great new information, easier searchability, new features, and the world-class look that we deserve to match the quality of information.  It’s a lot of work and we’re still raising funds to pay for the second half of the fee in order to be able to launch it.  Approximately 6-8 weeks to completion, but well worth the wait!

For those of you who have contributed to this massive step – thank you!  And for those of you who want to help us cross the finish line – please do!  Just Click Here or on the Big Red Donate Button to provide a donation of any size.  I’ll post pictures in the coming weeks of what’s going it’s going to look like.  An exciting important step for this 10-years-and-counting weekly podcast/broadcast on nuclear issues!  Stay tuned! — Libbe.
