I'm struggling w impulse control, too, lol. Just watched these episodes a couple days ago and I'm rewatching them now. That's a first. If I had one wish, and it's an odd one, I wish all these scenes at the reactor had a little map overlay in the corner, like in a videogame. I feel a bit lost with people walking between pumps and cores and control rooms.
Speaking of medical stuff, I found this article after A.Ron mentioned how any steel made from 1945 on is different because it has radiation from atomic detonations in it. Apparently they’re using recovered steel from sunken WWII ships for equipment that is used to detect radiation and medical scanners: http://www.sciencemadesimple.co.uk/curriculum-blogs/engineering-blogs/why-do-we-build-medical-scanners-from-sunken-battleshipsI had never heard about any of this. As a species, we sure have managed to fuck up the planet, haven’t we?!

Question- the man in the very beginning of episode one who hung himself is Jared? Listening to the podcast and thought I heard something different. Another question, perhaps rhetorical. Why send those poor men into the water/pipes with an audible radiation meter. They’re dying regardless. What mental torture. Thus is is a fantastically written and acted show.
