Welcome to the Field Day Podcast

Our current episode is an interview with long-time anti-nuclear activist, Mark Dearey.

The nuclear power debate has disappeared from Irish discourse in the last decade, even with spikes of interest in the Fukushima disaster, and more recently in the TV show Chernobyl. Mark Dearey brings it back centre stage in all its urgency in this expansive interview about the history of British nuclear power, the prospects for nuclear in Ireland, and the challenges of green politics.

There’s a massive risk that authoritarianism could creep into green politics globally.
