It was very interesting to discuss the State of Global Nuclear with Mycle Schneider and Laurent Segalen on the latest Redefining Energy which you can download from Apple at or Spotify:  

It certainly was an eye open for me and actually some of the things I learned about the nuclear industry off-line where pretty shocking...There needs to be a book written on the rise and fall of the nuclear industry. A real tragedy for all of us!

Any comments on the podcast are most welcome?

If we're doing the autopsy today, will SMRs be the zombie that rises again? Nuclear certainly hasn't been at the forefront of new builds, but I still think it might be premature to bury the industry.
