In March 2011, an earthquake and tsunami triggered a meltdown of three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan. Three years later, we examine the state of the cleanup, its effect on Japanese politics, and the impact on marine life and the environment.

Guests:

Kenji Kushida, research associate in Japanese Studies at Stanford University's Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center

Edwin Lyman, senior scientist with the Global Security Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, and co-author of the new book, "Fukushima: The Story of a Nuclear Disaster"

Dan Madigan, postdoctoral fellow and adjunct assistant professor at Stony Brook University's School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences
