expect. Other topics, in this weeks podcast, include a new report from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute which finds Fukushima Daiichi is still leaking, swelling citizen protests at the Indian Kudankulam plant, and a milestone in nuclear history as one U.S. plant plans to shut down for economic reasons.
