Almighty

Courage, Resistance, and Existential Peril in the Nuclear Age

By Dan Zak
Narrated by Michael Quinlan / 10 hours 49 minutes

A riveting, chilling tale of how a group of ragtag activists infiltrated one of the most secure nuclear weapons sites in the United States, told alongside a broader history of America's nuclear stewardshipOn Saturday, July 28, 2012, an eighty-two-year-old Catholic nun, a Vietnam veteran, and a house painter infiltrated the Oak Ridge, Tennessee, nuclear complex in the dead of night, smearing the walls with human blood and spray-painting quotes from the Bible. Then they waited to be arrested. What was a simple plan-one far more successful than even its perpetrators expected-spawned a complex discussion. How did three unarmed civilians manage to penetrate one of the most heavily guarded locations in the world, nicknamed the "Fort Knox of Uranium"? Why does the United States continue to possess more nuclear weaponry than is needed to destroy global civilization many times over? And what does this mean for the day-to-day safety of Americans?In Almighty, Washington Post writer Dan Zak begins with the present-day axis of a seventy-year-old story, exploring how events of the twentieth century led to one of the most successful and high-profile demonstrations of anti-nuclear activism.
