My Kiwi Life Podcast 23: Dr Helen Caldicott ‘The Pediatrician Fighting Nuclear Power’

MyKiwiLife_Dr Helen Caldicott

Dr Helen Mary Caldicott is an Australian physician, author, and anti-nuclear advocate who is fighting the fight that many of us should be doing but are too busy watching reality television.

A bit of a warning friends, this weeks podcast does deal with some very heavy topics. Including how the Fukushima nuclear plant has been leaking 400 tonnes radioactive waste into the ocean everyday for the past five years and humanities impending nuclear doom which is the very real fear that Russia and America’s Cold War II could end in a nuclear apocalypse but somehow there is still goodness in every one of us.

Ironically this weeks song is a positive one. Its called ‘Brand New World’ and its about being how lucky we are in the place we call home. But after speaking with Helen maybe a brand new world will be us picking up the pieces after the nukes.
