A Fukushima Farmer Tills His Soil For Radiation
Dick calls Japanese farmer Mitsuo Sato, who lived close to the Fukushima Daiichi reactor when it began to meltdown in 2011. We have spoken to him twice now and check back on whether there has been any progress in returning to his farm. He is part of a crew that is decontaminating the soil in his community, and says he might be able to work the soil again by 2015.
To hear the audio for this interview, visit The Story's website. Also in this show: Japanese photographer Shimpei Tekada collected contaminated soil and placed it on film; and photographer Wendy Ewald re-visits an Innu community after 40 years.
