Wonking Week: Disaster

In this week’s audio newsletter, we discuss the horrific events in Japan, while Emily Badger examines the state of nuclear energy regulation in the U.S.

Audio portions for this week’s Wonking Week podcast were drawn from:

- Ambient sounds of the events in Japan were taken from the videos by citizen journalists reporting in Kanagawa and Iwate. Video 1. Video 2.Video 3.Video 4.

- The outro to our first conversation was a piece by film composer Kojun Saito taken from the movie Tokyo Story. The outro to our interview with Emily Badger was a piece by John Williams.
