Our First guest on Radioactivity is national security expert and journalist Marvin Kalb. Kalb is a former correspondent for  CBS News and Meet the Press, reporting extensively on US/Russian Relations during his 50 year career. His latest book , Imperial Gamble: Putin, Ukraine and the New Cold War, looks at the Soviet origins of Vladimir Putin’s regime and its current role in the crises in the Ukraine and Syria.

Then we are joined by attorney David Guest, who, with environmental group Earth Justice, is calling for the governor and state legislature to take the pollution of Lake Okeechobee by Big Agriculture more seriously. Fertilizer run-off from nearby sugar plantations have killed marine life in the lake and contaminated the waterways that draw from it.
