☢️ Forbidden Chernobyl - A Journey to the Most Dangerous Place on Earth [Podcast Ep. 4]
Henry recalls his trip to Chernobyl, what he saw on ground at the reactor 4 site, surrounding villages, the city Pripyat, and the former top secret DUGA-1 OTH Radar Array used to detect American ICBMs.
Reactor no. 4 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant experienced a melt-down, and exploded on April 26th, 1986, causing the largest nuclear disaster to date.
While many cite the unprecedented environmental damage, forced human evacuation, and long-lasting health problems for Ukranians and Belorussians, part of the biggest tragedies are of the people who went into Chernobyl as first responders and paid the ultimate sacrifice.
We also compare and contrast the real-life locations, to pop-culture references like HBO's "Chernobyl" and Call of Duty (video game).
