This episode discusses some of the long-term hidden costs of nuclear weapons production discussed in the new movie “Atomic Homefront”, which focuses especially on health problems experienced today in the St. Louis area attributed to nuclear contamination dating from the World War II Manhattan project.
The movie will be shown at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in Kansas City, MO, Thursday, July 20, starting at 7 PM.
Ann Suellentrop and Kristen Nolte are interviewed in this episode and will lead a discussion after the movie.
Ann is a mother-baby nurse, who is also active with the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability and serves on the Board for PeaceWorksKC. Kristen’s 16-year-old son son died of cancer suspected as a result of contamination from nuclear waste exposure in St. Louis.
