Libbe HaLevy, M.A.
Producer/Host, Nuclear Hotseat
Co-Creator, Radiation Awareness and Protection Talk
Libbe HaLevy produces and hosts Nuclear Hotseat, the weekly international news magazine on all things anti-nuclear.
Now in its fourth year, with over 175 episodes archived (www.NuclearHotseat.com or on iTunes), Nuclear Hotseat in podcast form:
- is downloaded on six continents
- has received as many as half a million hits in a week
- provides serious reporting as well as Jon Stewart-esque comic relief (“Numnutz of the Week” for Nuclear Boneheadedness)
- has interviewed nuclear experts in insightful interviews that have broken national stories in mainstream media.
Libbe was visiting friends one mile from the nuclear reactors at Three Mile Island in Middletown, Pennsylvania, when the nuclear accident happened on March 28, 1979. Libbe is the top-selling author of the nuclear memoir, Yes, I Glow in the Dark! One Mile from Three Mile Island to Fukushima and Beyond, available as an ebook on Amazon.com, and co-created the Radiation Awareness and Protection Talk (RAPT) program on ways for people to empower themselves to minimize radiation’s impact on their health and genetic future.
During an extensive career in broadcasting, she worked for WGN-TV, WGBH-TV, 20th Century Fox Studios, Norman Lear’s production companies, and many radio stations. Now an experienced life and business coach (clients include stage and screen legend Julie Andrews), award-winning playwright and sought-after public speaker, Libbe’s dream is to be a catalyst to help end all things nuclear and inspire discovery of a way to remediate existing nuclear waste. Failing that, she’d make a great Nuclear Pundit for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. www.NuclearHotseat.com.
