MEDIA ROOTS– Robbie and Abby Martin host a special 90 minute edition of Media Roots Radio covering Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster with guests Shing02 and Anthony Bisset. Shing02 and Anthony cover the state of the reactors and break down radiation: levels, dangers, breakdown of compounds, government cover ups and media disinformation, the science of nuclear energy and how one can prepare for a nuclear fallout or massive release.
Anthony Bisset is a composer and improviser working in all genres of electronic music who designs his own software and hardware for live use. Since 2007 he has been a part time resident and regular performer in Tokyo and has played shows from Hokkaido to the Southern islands. Having his extended family and friends in Tokyo threatened by nuclear fallout, Anthony has been heavily researching since the March 11th disaster. More about him at www.anthonybisset.com
