RNE08: What happened at Pilgrim? Dr. Todd Allen Guests!

After a long break, we return with a brand-new episode! We discuss developments with one of our favorite companies, Lightbridge, what happened at pilgrim during the massive New England snowstorm, and NuScale’s newest developments. This week, we are fortunate enough to be joined by Dr. Todd Allen, Senior Fellow at ThirdWay, and current professor at University of Wisconsin.
