Should the owners of the shuttered San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station dig up and remove all the infrastructure snaking along the ocean floor? Or should they leave some structures beneath the waves, to perhaps bloom into an artificial reef for sea life? Should everyone acknowledge that the spent fuel entombed near the beach might, indeed, remain there far beyond 2049 – perhaps into perpetuity – and that an entirely new temporary storage system might eventually need to be built elsewhere on sit...

PART I: The Wireline-Wireless Broadband and Internet Bait and Switch PART II: Let me explain why all of your communications rates keep going up or why there are 'data caps' imposed, and why many customers have overcharges on wireless.

BOTNS #333: What the heck is cli-fi?

In this episode, we look at a new-ish book genre called cli-fi, and revisit two of our favorite backlist titles, A Stranger in the Kingdom and A Handmaid’s Tale   , and since Memorial Day has passed in the US, it is officially Bingo time! Michael is waiting to start a that he just received. I briefly talk about a newish sitcom that is set in the world of publishing, Younger. I have some mixed feelings about it, but it’s kind of fun in a non-realistic, mindless-tv kind of way.   Audiobook of...
