Eileen Welsome got the Pulitzer prize for her work in uncovering radiation test on humans in America after the second World War. Many of them never knew they were being injected with deadly substances. We'll have a look at the Plutonium Files next time.

Paul Josephson, research fellow at Harvard, talks with Todd about the importance of nuclear power to Russia in the past, and how they regard it now. He talks about the effects of communism on nuclear power, and how it was used to advance the Soviet cause. He talks about primary forms of power in Russia, the influence of Soviet leaders, and their utopian vision of what nuclear power could mean for Russia.  His book is "Red Atom: Russia's Nuclear Power Program From Stalin To Today".
