M V Ramana in Conversation with Stephanie Fraser

Dianukes are an experiment in communication models in this digital age.On Monday, November 28, MV Ramana will be a guest on the radio show of Stephanie Fraser on WGDR 91.1 FM and WGDH 91.7 FM in Central Vermont. The show is webstreamed on wgdr.org. It is on the air from 11 AM – 1 pm Eastern US Time.

The topic will be “Nuclear Power Post-Fukushima.”

Listeners will be able to interact with Ramana via the Dianuke Facebook page. Both Stephanie Fraser and MV Ramana will be reading the responses and in real time answering the questions and concerns raised in the comment thread.


This is the second DiaNuke. The first one was with Lalita Ramdas, and only utlilized the FB wall to communicate. It was clear that the constraints of typing a conversation limited the discussions.

Thus the second DiaNuke will utilize a multimedia approach with a live discussion on the radio, and webstreamed and an interactive component with the FB wall.

Please join us. It should be an excellent discussion.
