Nuclear Refugees

The Bombs Last Blast

In telling ourselves the history of the atomic bomb, we can too often think they were only dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But there were other bombs that fell -- they just weren’t dropped on people. Not directly. They were dropped on islands. Islands in the South Pacific. The Marshall Islands. This story aired on KQED's Q'ed Up podcast.

Healing America's Forgotten Nuclear Refugees

Greta Briand had a front row seat to the Cold War. Between 1946 and '58, the United States detonated 67 nuclear bombs in her homeland, the Marshall Islands, an archipelago of coral atolls in the South Pacific. Greta and many of her people were uprooted and scattered across the world. The first group settled in Costa Mesa, California. That’s where I met Greta and learned how she helps her Marshallese community cope with the devastating health effects of the nuclear experiments. This story aired on KQED's California Report Magazine. 

Nuclear Testing's Lasting Legacy

As many as a third of all Marshallese live in the US—nearly 3,000 of them in the small city of Enid, Oklahoma. One of them is Terry Mote. Mote is a relentless jokester and an excellent cook. His community is in trouble, and he's working overtime trying to get people to notice. This story aired on NPR's Morning Edition.
