Democracy in Decline: Faith and Trust at Three Mile Island

I interview Cindy Folkers of Beyond Nuclear International. Cindy is a radiation expert and guides me navigate the technical waters. We talk at length about the level of radiation that was released during the incident, and the effect it would have had on public health.

I speak to Christine Layman. Christine administers a Facebook group of 4000 members. The members are all Three Mile Island survivors and believe their illnesses exist because of Three Mile Island. Christine speaks about her trust in the government, and how its changed since the 1979. She also speaks about her hopes for the future, and what her groups aspires to accomplish.
