The star power driving the nuclear fission that is this week’s episode, 122, of the podcast is off the (radiation) charts

There’s me, of course.

But we’ve also got Jane Fonda! Michael Douglas! Jack Lemmon!

Oh, and some super naughty Muppets!

Okay, technically, none of those people is on the show. They’re all in the 1979 movie China Syndrome. A “China syndrome” is a theory that an exploding nuclear reactor could punch a hole through the Earth from North America to China. This theory inspired the 1982 Spectravision game of the same name. Because there’s nothing kids love more than nuclear physics.

Oh, there’s no Muppets actually on the show either. There’s still me, though, and I’m pretty sure I’m not a Muppet. No matter what my eighth grade teacher said. 

We’ll take the atoms floating around this game reactor and smash them together to unleash the story energy within. Or something.

Beware the Atari Mushroom Cloud awaits.
