Talk Nation Radio: The Need to Ban Nuclear Weapons and Energy

This Week on Talk Nation Radio, we speak with two of the key people behind Beyond Nuclear International, which you can find at

Linda Pentz Gunter and Cindy Folkers

Linda Pentz Gunter founded Beyond Nuclear in 2007 and serves as its international specialist as well as its media and development director. Prior to her work in anti-nuclear advocacy, she was a journalist for 20 years in print and broadcast, working for USA Network, Reuters, The Times (UK), and other US and international outlets. Beyond Nuclear works to support grassroots, national and international efforts to phase out nuclear power in favor of safer renewable energy choices. It also draws attention to the perpetual link between nuclear power and the pathway to nuclear weapons and advocates for a global nuclear weapons ban.

Cindy Folkers studies radiation impacts on health, with particular focus on women, children, and pregnancy. She monitors and encourages community engagement with Congress and national scientific panels on radiation issues, and advocates for community-based action that informs individuals on contamination levels and risk. Cindy also handles the administrative operations of Beyond Nuclear.
