Though this show has always been exclusively music, this topic is so timely I thought it worthwhile to spread the word.   Currently the fate of the Indian Point nuclear power plant hinges on whether the government grants them a 20 year license renewal and the state is holding public hearings.  In this jaw-dropping interview, Susan Hito-Shapiro of the Radiation and Public Health Project tells us of the conditions at Indian Point where 1,500 tons of radioactive waste are stored 22 miles from midtown.

If you are moved to take action, as I was, after hearing her, there are links here and at www.riverkeeper.org.
