HBO’s Chernobyl: Historical, Political and Scientific Analysis | Mocking USSR, Chernobyl’s Nature Today

June 10, 2019

HBO's Chernobyl mini-series has been a smash hit with audiences and critics alike, lauded for its brutal realism, historical accuracy, cinematography and great acting. In this podcast, Gil Kidron and Dr. Rutger Vos, an evolutionary biologist from Leiden University and Naturalis Biodiversity Center, both in The Netherlands, break down the main political messages in Chernobyl, the depiction of the USSR in light of the (mis)handling of the disaster, relate it to current politics and geopolitics in the age of climate change, and talk about the state of nature in and around Chernobyl today.
