Down by the River: Stories of Hanford is an audio podcast devoted to unpacking the long and nuanced history of the world’s first nuclear reactor. As part of the Manhattan Project in WWII, Hanford was built along the Columbia River. The Hanford produced 60% of the plutonium used in the US nuclear arsenal. At the end of the Cold War the mission of Hanford switch from production to remediation of the area. Cleanup at Hanford will last for decades, cost billions of taxpayer dollars, and hinges on technology not yet invented. On each podcast, we will explore the science and the stories of Hanford to give listeners a deeper and broader understanding of a place that was a significant part of our country’s past, and a difficult challenge for our future.
