5th 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 5th interview with my dad is now available:

5th Interview with my Dad

Partway through the audio started echoing (on my side only), which I apologize for. Fortunately, a full transcript is now available.

I also just wanted to make a quick note here that although my geology blog Georneys is copyright protected, I really want people to take the information in my dad’s interviews and distribute it as widely as possible.

People are already posting links and taking excerpts, which is great. If you want to take the audio files & full transcripts and post them anywhere else– on your website or blog– please do so. If you can link back to Skepchick or Georneys and send me an email ([email protected]), that would be great. But don’t wait to hear back from me– just take away.

These interviews are not about me or my dad or this blog– they’re about providing, to the best of our ability, information to the general public about the nuclear disaster.

  1. Thanks for the permission to use the interviews. I’m going to put all of the on YouTube, and link them at two science blogs I frequent. I am also going to continue to try to get your dad on the Dennis Miller radio show. I’ve contacted them twice already. I will contact them more. I think they don’t understand that your dad is very experienced, and easy to understand.

    I just want to request that anyone reading this will also try to contact the show and link the YouTube videos to them. It’s easy to contact them. You can either use the producers contact page via the web, or you can give it a try calling them. The show is on live from 7:00am to 10:00am (California time), Mon – Fri.

    This is the link to the producers contact page:

    This is the phone number:


    You have to call during the time the show is on air. The earlier the better. 7:05 is the best time to start to try.

    His show is not the largest in America. But still he has millions of listeners. And he asks good questions in his interviews.
