6th Interview with my Dad, a Nuclear Engineer, about the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Disaster in Japan

Until the situation in Japan calms down and after talking to Rebecca, I have decided to keep posting these interview updates with my dad here on Skepchick.

A 6th interview with my dad is now available:

Partway through the audio started echoing (on my side only), which I apologize for. I hope someone will volunteer to make a transcript. Also, I am happy to announce a PR representative from Skype just contacted me to give me free software and try to help me.
