The global Hibakusha


On this week’s Nuclear Hotseat, Part 2 of the interview with Prof. Robert “Bo” Jacobs. He is an American historian of nuclear technologies and radiation techno-politics. Bo moved to Japan in 2006 after being hired by the Hiroshima Peace Institute and is currently a professor at the Hiroshima Peace Institute and the Graduate School of Peace Studies of Hiroshima City University. He’s the author of the 2022 book, NUCLEAR BODIES: The Global Hibakusha.

This is a continuation of the interview from last week’s Nuclear Hotseat #632.

The Nuclear Hotseat Hot Story with Linda Pentz Gunter looks at the lunatic plan to use nuclear reactors on the moon, where this precious orb will be plundered for metals and water to set up human “habitation” and will inevitably become our next nuclear waste site.
