Listened to the full podcast of episode 3 yesterday, great information.

They pretty much said they neutered the actual side effects of radiation for the firefighters because it would have felt "redundant" or that they were "picking on them". Incredible to think we saw a more mild version

The description of the firefighters from their wives POV was that they died with charcoal black skin.

Also, I am amazed by the character of the Russian people. These miners that willingly gave their lives (about 1/4 died shortly after), the "divers" who opened the tanks. True heroes that no one ever knew of.

The depravity of the Soviets knows no end. Their willingness to sacrifice their own people in order to save face....
