This Week’s Featured Interview:

  • Dawn Chapman and Karen Nickel are two North St. Louis mothers who discovered the fact of WWII radioactive atomic weapons waste illegally buried in a neighborhood landfill.  They founded the group Just Moms StL and shepherded the protests by friends and neighbors to radioactive waste in the neighborhoods, the back yards, even inside the houses where others in their community live. With this week’s monumental EPA announcement, nobody better to comment on what it all means… and where the battle for the clean-up turns next.  You didn’t think it was over, did you???
