National Magazine - Climate One Radio:
Nuclear Power-Slow Death or Ready for Rebound"

For decades, environmentalists battled against nuclear power, claiming it was an uncontrolable peril to the planet. So it’s ironic that today some of these same people are now supporting nukes as an important asset in our race to reduce the threat of climate change. Nuclear power produces lots of energy and no greenhouse gases. But we still have the problems of plutonium and proliferation. Is it safe to keep running these aging plants? Will the new, improved generation of nuclear power plants allow us to have our cake and eat it too?

2016 Re:sound Specials, from the Third Coast Audio Festival
The Stories From Childhood Show - This hour on Re:sound, some of our favorite childhood icons: from the man who gave us Thing One and Thing Two, to Dorothy, the tin man and Toto too….and let’s not forget about a quiet old lady whispering “Hush!”

Brian is a Spokane native who has been interested in sound technology ever since playing with a reel-to-reel deck as a kid. He learned radio broadcasting on KSFC, before it was part of Spokane Public Radio but still was part of the broadcasting program at Spokane Falls Community College. Brian also studied radio at Clatsop Community College in Astoria, Oregon, where he featured new age and fusion jazz on his own show. He admits that at heart he is a news junkie, which fits in well with his work Saturday mornings as regional host for NPR's Morning Edition.
