The SnideShow Episode 006 – Radium Girls

Listen: 006 – Radium Girls

I interview Kate Moore, author of The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women, which details the struggles and triumphs of the painters of glow-in-the-dark dials, who suffered horrific injuries from radiation poisoning, and who subsequently struggled for justice, including better workplace protections and accountability of corporations and government agencies.
