In this episode, I discuss my first “pit stop” as part of my one-year road trip around the United States to visit nuclear-weapons related sites. In my research on nuclear weapons and Texas, I spotted something odd on Google Maps satellite imagery. On my way to San Antonio, I made a quick stop at “Uranium Lake” near Falls City, Texas and check on background radiation levels in the area with a geiger counter. I bet you’ll be surprised by the amount of radiation several hundred feet from the site.
