On this episode we cover the current landscape for nuclear energy and its prospects for the future. Matt Wald, Senior Communications Advisor at the Nuclear Energy Institute, joins the podcast to discuss the benefits of nuclear energy; how nuclear's economics and environmental aspects compare with other power sources; and the context and implications for Westinghouse's recent financial troubles and the recently announced closures of the Indian Point and Diablo Canyon reactors in New York and California. We close the podcast with a discussion about the future of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) and the new politics of Yucca Mountain.
