This week we sat down with another Torrey House Press author, Zak Podmore, to discuss his new book Confluence: Navigating the Personal & Political Rivers of the New West and his life on the river. Zak has a long history with the uranium industry, a history that is ongoing for him even today in San Juan County. This industry, along with other radioactive waste issues, is something that HEAL is especially familiar with. We dive into the issue of uranium milling and Utah’s long relationship with radioactive waste. His book Confluence is on sale this October.
